This might be pretty straightforward, but to avoid issues we’ve decided to make a little article to explain the EK 6-way D-RGB splitter and how it should be used.

Did you know that you can open your blocks without voiding warranty?

We’ve seen a lot of people say the warranty is void once the EK water blocks are opened. That is not true, at least not entirely. EK offers two warranties.

In case of defect and leakage, while the leak seal is intact, that is the block was not opened by the user, EK covers all damage to the liquid cooling equipment and any PC hardware ruined in the process.
