Complete RGB upgrade kits for existing water blocks
EK® Water Blocks, the premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer has released five new RGB upgrade kits for existing water blocks. The most popular CPU water block on the market, the EK-Supremacy EVO, and the four most popular full cover GPU water blocks got RGB upgrade kits. The kits enable a quick and easy upgrade of the existing water blocks as they contain all the necessary tools and parts.
The GPU upgrade kits include all the necessary parts including a fresh set of screws, thermal pads, O-rings, Allen keys, new RGB ready plexi top, aluminum cover with an already installed RGB strip and a fresh EK badge. The only things that are reused from the previous GPU block are the nickel plated cold plate and the terminal. EK® strongly recommends users to avoid excessive force when re-tightening the screws.

The EK-XTOP Revo D5 RGB update kit is available for a while now, but we guess it’s worth mentioning it once again. The high-performance aftermarket pump volute/body also comes with a vibration-reducing mounting clamp for Xylem D5 series water pumps.
All of the above mentioned RGB upgrade kits are equipped with standard 4-pin 12V RGB LEDs. Meaning, they can be used with any standard 4-pin 12V RGB controller or any of the popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers. The arrow marking on the 4-pin LED connector is to be aligned with the +12V marking on the RGB header.
