EKWB as the leading company in computer liquid cooling market launched in July 2012 EKWB company new design which was applied to every EK product. An unique design language clearly differs EK products from the rest of the marker, giving the products highers added value for the customers.
Wit the launch of new design a new CPU water block was released - EK-Supremacy. The only CPU water block on the market with optimized jet plate for different CPUs.
In 2011 EK presented sam fin design as in CPU water block for the VGA Full Cover water blocks. The new fin design increased full cover water blocks cooling capability which resulted up to 5°C drop of the GPU maximum load temperature.
On the wings of the award winning EK-Supreme HF which was released in last days of 2009, EK experienced incredible growth in 2010. EK-Supreme HF offered in 6 different versions was imediatelly accepted as the best performance CPU water block ever build. At the end of the year EK presented visually renewed EK-Supreme HF with upgraded mounting system called "Easy Mounting system".
In 2010 EK released many water blocks for top VGA cards and motherboards such as: Asus Crosshair IV formula, Asus Rampage Extreme III, Gigabyte UD9, EVGA SR-2, MSI 5870 Lightning, Radeon 6000 series, Geforces 400 series.
Unique EK-PSC fittings (perfect seal compression fittings) were released for most common used tubing.
The year started with a worldwide talking of only economic crisis. But EK's goals were to come out at the end of the crisis even stronger. With a long term business plan to offer wider range of watercooling products under the EK brand, EK is getting more and more partners that are seeing the big potential and benefit of EK products.
In June 2009, EK was first to release an All-in-One water block for motherboards - a single water block that covers all the chips on the motherboard that need to be cooler when overclocked.
After a complete success of the EK-FB EVGA X58 Classified water block and victory over a close competition, EK released Full Board water blocks for the EVGA X58 LE and ASUS Crosshair III Formula motherboards. In 2009, EK is planning to also offer pumps, radiators, coolants and fans under the EK brand.
In 2008, EK Water Blocks Company has changed from a personal company to a limited company called EKWB d.o.o., now located on new premises.
EK released a new revision of the aftermarket top for one of the most popular watercooling pumps - the Laing DDC. The new EK-DDC X-TOP Rev.2 has beaten the competition by as much as 6% according to independent tests.
In 2007, EK has shown that it is here to stay. The EK trademark has become a synonym for quality, top performance and fastest respond time on current market needs. In September 2007, EK presented the ultimate CPU water block called the EK-Supreme. The block outperformed all current competition and became one of the most popular CPU water blocks. EK has continuously released new products for motherboards, graphic cards and other watercooling products that keeps EK ahead of the competition.
EK has continioulsly released new products for motherboard, graphic cards and other watercooling products that keeped EK in front of the competition.
In the beginning of 2006, EK has offered a complete assortment of water blocks for water cooling including 3 new extreme, high performance Full Cover water blocks for the Nvidia GeForce 7800 Series, ATI Radeon X1800/1900 and X800/X850 high end graphics cards.
From the beginning, EK’s most important role is to keep close contact with customers and listen to their needs ,comments and to supply water cooling enthusiasts with products they want. EK’s main goal is to continuously develop extremely high performance and aesthetic water blocks.
EK is planning to set distribution channels into EU countries. Although EK is getting a lot of inquiries, our goal is to get resellers and distributors which can offer quality service to customers, which is our primary value.
In 2006, EK presented full cover water block for the most successful graphic card family with longest life span - the GeForce 8800 Series (G80) graphics card.
The most advanced and multi-featured “multioption” reservoirs called the EK Multioption reservoirs were offered in the end of 2006.
In the beginning of 2005, a new block was released, the EK-MCW (Micro Channel Wave). The block has outperformed all predecessors in both cooling performance and aesthetics.
Meanwhile, another Full Cover water block was introduced for the Nvidia 6800 series graphics card, the EK-VGA-FC:
EK was one the first companies that has offered quality water blocks, such as the EK-NF4 water block for the most popular nForce 4 SLI motherboards, such as the DFI ultra D:
In the end of 2005, EK realized that the Slovenian market is too small and decided to offer their products abroad. A new sales and development executive joined the crew.
In 2004, EK presented a new evolution of water blocks. The blocks were named EK-WW (wave water) and EK-VGA-NW (new wave).
In that same year they made their first so called Full Cover water block for graphics cards.
This water block inspired them, as they saw the great potential in that design for future water blocks.
Major CPU water block design improvements were made allowing the EK-WWA (wave water accelerator) water block to become one of the world's best performing water blocks in the market.
The block's main advantages are that it performs well even at a low flow of coolant. The curved channels increases the surface area for heat exchange and increases turbulence which contributes to higher cooling performance.
Edvard König's dreams came true while finishing his studies in 2003, when he made his first water block prototypes, called the EK-1, EK-2 and EK-3. His designing criteria was and still is: quality and breathtaking design on the technological edge.
Soon his friend David joined his mission, and together they made first their CPU simulator for testing the prototypes. Months and months were spent on development. After that, they have made some more prototypes, but the first one to come out of production was the EK-4 water block.
After EK-4 came EK-6 as a serial water block:
Their main goal was for every next series of water blocks to be better in both cooling performance and quality. And so it was.
1999 It all started in year 1999, when Edvard König bought his first computer. Soon he had realized that air cooling is not enough to cool his highly overclocked computer. So he tried to find an appropriate substitute. He found out about water cooling and shortly after he had a great desire to make his own water block. He spent days, nights and weekends developing sketches of water blocks.
