EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce the EK-Supremacy PreciseMount Add-on Naked Ivy. This product is world-first of it's kind - it is the mounting mechanism upgrade for existing cooling device, designed to support delided 3rd Generation Intel Core i3/i5/i7 Ivy Bridge CPUs. This product is the perfect upgrade for all those EK-Supremacy users who want to use their delided 3rd Generation Intel Core i3/i5/i7 CPU safely and squeeze the last megahertz out of their processors.

EK-Supremacy PreciseMount Add-on Naked Ivy is an add-on for EK-Supremacy PreciseMount universal mounting mechanism that offers error-preventing, tool-less installation. The result is a perfect installation which results in perfect performance every time. It is compatible with EK-Supremacy series water blocks only! All enclosed screws are made of high-quality nickel plated brass. EK recommends the normal orientation of EK-Supremacy water block for optimal results! Using the water block rotated by 90° may result in less than optimal cooling.

It's not even April's 1st!

It's just marketing, I already do that with my old EK CPU WB...

Mounting is easy, but removing WB is more difficult, DIE and WB stay in contact (due to the TIM), and without socket, when you remove WB, cpu come... it's not an issue for CPU, but for MB.. if CPU fall, all socket pin will be dead..

I think it is designed so that you can tighten the nuts all the way down and not damage anything. With the standard mounting hardware, you might apply too much pressure if you fully tighten the nuts. The only real danger is removing the IHS and as was mentioned, when removing the block there is a possibility that the cpu might fall onto the socket if it were to get stuck to the block. I have removed the block only once and the cpu stayed in the socket. Unfortunately, I scratched a trace on the pcb and now my chip only runs single channel. The kit makes it simple and effortless to get a good mount without worry of damaging the cpu or socket.

Easy solution to the CPU staying stuck to the waterblock: use electrical tape and tape the chip down. Any ugliness will be hidden by the waterblock.
