EK releases EK-VGA Supremacy HWBOT Edition

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to officially release the EK-VGA Supremacy HWBOT Edition, the first fruit of the collaboration between EK Water Blocks and HWBOT.

EK-VGA Supremacy HWBOT Edition is a highest performance universal GPU water block built off EK-Supremacy cooling engine. It is a special edition of world-renown EK-VGA Supremacy waterblock featuring 100% metal construction. EK-VGA Supremacy is a direct successor of the world renown EK-VGA Supreme HF waterblock launched in 2010. It’s main improvements are:

  • better flow: due to improved design up to 20% higher flow compared to EK-VGA Supreme HF
  • better cooling performance: up to 2°C lower GPU temperatures

The EK-VGA Supremacy cooling engine uses similar, yet refined as per needs of modern microprocessors, fin design as its ancestor. The cooling liquid accelerates through jet plate’s nozzle and turbulently continues its path through numerous very thin channels which provide extreme cooling surface area. Specifically designed and carefully machined copper base (sometimes referred to as ‘cold plate’) is made from purest copper available on the market and is further polished to absolute mirror finish. This alone greatly improves the cooling performance of EK-VGA Supremacy.

The top is made of preciselly milled brass, coated in nickel plated finish. Full metal construction allows for use in very low temperature chilled liquid cooling systems.

GPU compatibility:

EK-VGA Supremacy series waterblocks supports majority of modern nVidia and AMD high-end graphics cards. Please check compatibility at EK’s CoolingConfigurator. Graphics cards with the following square mouting holes pattern are supported:

Mother of god that's expensive.

United States sin0822 says:

100 bucks

United States xxbassplayerxx says:

Yup! That's crazy expensive for a universal GPU block.

Australia Jimba says:

that does look nice, maybe its time to invest in watercooling..

Sweden Calathea says:

Cool! I must agree about the price, a little on the expensive side, but nevertheless great to see HWBOT logo on a cooler.

United States Gunslinger says:

Kind of a bummer about the 10mm limitation also, would have been nice to see 13mm compatibility

Slovenia tiborrr says:

10mm physical limitation can be bypassed if using 45° revolvable angled adapters such as: http://www.ekwb.com/shop/accessories/fittings/adaptor-fittings/ek-csq-adapter-45-g1-4-nickel.html

Belgium leeghoofd says:

Don't forget it's multi compatible, cheaper blocks usually need other optional brackets and even the 7970 shim is included...

Australia Jimba says:

I want see a full "hwbot edition" range :D
