EK has been known in the past to do discount periods for major holidays and occasional clearance sales. That part will stay, but there is now a permanent category within the EK webshop that is filled with great deals you don’t want to miss. It has all the items EK produces – fittings, water blocks, adapters, backplates, monoblocks, radiators, fans and more!
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. One is a leak warranty – which guarantees the product was tested after assembly and does not leak. 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.
In this article, we’ll look at two most ways you can configure your loop, or more accurately the GPU block. The most common and usually featured is a serial connection, which uses one inlet to the GPU block, and one outlet. The parallel connection utilizes all 4 ports on the GPU block, and in the rest of this blog you’ll find out how that works and what are benefits and drawbacks of both configurations.
In part 3 of useful tips, we’ll take a look at some things that might go wrong for custom liquid cooling builders and how you should avoid them.
We’ve received many questions regarding the EK-CryoFuel Solid foaming and/or having air bubbles just after filling the system. Right off the bat, we can say that it’s totally normal and it will lessen over time. Solid colored coolants definitely experience it more than semi-translucent ones, so we’re mostly dedicating this to CryoFuel Solid lineup.
Let’s start by taking a look at two of the most common materials from which the hard tubing is most often made and pros and cons of both. Acrylic and PETG.
SSD cooling has been a topic that’s discussed a lot lately. Some people say “yes, you should cool it”, some people disagree. In this article we’ll be covering the benefits and drawbacks of cooling an SSD, and when do these drawbacks actually happen.
In an effort to help with protecting the environment and using less paper, EK has been packaging newer products without a written manual. The main goal was to save some trees if possible while not skimping on materials for our users, as we think most customers have a smartphone to scan the barcode and get a .pdf manual opened on it.
We’re continuing our series in which we assist first-time liquid coolers with useful info. We’re going down the list which was set up with your help. In the first one, we’ve exclusively talked about drain ports. This time we’re touching a few more subjects.
There is a simple fix to the issue, the only thing that needs to be done is to remove the four closest stand-off mounts around the GPU die. With simple flat nose pliers, the stand-offs can be easily unscrewed turning them counter clockwise.
