EK-Supremacy EVO – Full Nickel and ASUS ROG Maximus IX Formula Z270 motherboard
EK Water Blocks, the market leader in high-end liquid cooling for PC products, confirms that all of its current CPU water blocks fully support the latest generation Intel® LGA-1151 Core® i5/i7 series processors (codename Kaby Lake) out-of-the-box.
Due to the same mounting holes pattern of the socket LGA-1151 based microprocessors, EK is pleased to confirm the following products to be 100% compatible with the Intel Core i5/i7 7000 series processors. There is no need to buy any additional parts:
– EK-Supremacy EVO (any variant except AMD C32/G34 and Elite – Intel 2011(-3) type)
– EK-Supremacy MX (any variant except AMD type)
Consequently the following EK liquid cooling kits and All-In-One Predator units also officially fully support Intel Kaby Lake platform:
