EK® is expanding its portfolio of kits with two new RGB versions!
EK® Water Blocks, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is expanding its portfolio of kits with two new RGB versions. The EK-KIT RGB 240 and 360 are ultimate fully RGB customizable liquid cooling kits that are built on the existing Performance line of kits which are dedicated to all users who seek the best price-performance ratio on the market. The kit contains everything you need to assemble your first high-end custom liquid cooling loop.
The EK-KIT RGB 240 and EK-KIT RGB 360 are using EK-CoolStream PE radiators that hit the sweet spot regarding thickness, performance, and low noise operation. The square housing of the radiator is evenly coated with black matte paint, and the fins themselves feature a super thin layer of black coating for a totally non-intrusive clean look.
Why did we design the RGB kits?
The EK-KIT RGB 240 and RGB 360 are ultimate fully RGB customizable liquid cooling kits that are built on the existing Performance line of kits. Designed for high-performance and overclocking in mind, the RGB kits are a great choice for liquid cooling enthusiasts who are looking for a complete RGB ready top tier cooling solution. This kit brings everything you need to assemble your custom liquid cooling loop. You don’t have to worry about compatibility issues or matching the fitting and tubing size. If you are looking for a quick access to the world of premium liquid cooling, this is your entry ticket. The end result is a beautiful RGB lit liquid cooling loop that is also ready for a future upgrades.
EK-KIT RGB 240 and EK-KIT RGB 360 bring the following components:
EK-Supremacy EVO RGB – a high-performance CPU water block that out of the box fits all modern CPU sockets like Intel® LGA 115* and Intel® LGA 20** with its universal mounting mechanism that offers error-preventing, tool-less installation. The result is an easy installation which brings perfect performance every time. For AMD® AM4 socket installation, the users will have to perform a mounting bracket swap which is included in the kit.

EK-CoolStream PE radiator (EK-CoolStream PE 240 and EK-CoolStream PE 360) – offers best cooling capacity in the 40mm thick radiator class as double stack copper fins provide massive surface area while the parallel flow cooling chambers reduce hydraulic flow resistance to a minimum. Built for EK-Vardar 120mm high static pressure fans, these radiators are optimized for maximum heat dissipation across an entire fan operational range, thus delivering exceptional performance at both low- and high airflow operation.

EK-Vardar EVO 120ER RGB (2200rpm) – high-static pressure RGB computer cooling fan, designed and built primarily for high-performance computer liquid cooling systems. Its high-quality Dual Ball bearing and the Start-Stop function ensures the lowest of noise emissions and a true 0db environment if your PC is not under load. Under the motor hub, there are total 9 LEDs making this the brightest RGB fan on the market, ensuring perfect light diffusion at broad daylight as well. The EK-Vardar is simply the best choice for computer radiator cooling as it provides unmatched performance throughout the entire operating range. Two 120mm RGB Vardar fans are included with EK-KIT RGB 240 and three 120mm RGB Vardar fans are included with EK-KIT RGB 360.

EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 RGB PWM – high-performance RGB supported water cooling pump with integrated reservoir. It features a fully rounded see-through acrylic design thus offering stunning looks and greater usability. This allows installation at any angle within 360° of rotation. Special rubber shock absorber is used to de-couple the main pump body from the mounting clip for silent operation, free of vibration induced noise.

EK-ACF Fitting 10/16mm – Advanced Compression Fittings are 10/16mm (3/8″ – 5/8″) soft-tube compression fittings designed for use with flexible soft tubing. With a high-quality finish, the EK-ACF Fittings are an aesthetically appealing and secure option for your cooling loop. The locking ring prevents the flexible tube from being pulled out of the fitting by compressing the tubing wall underneath the ring. The EK-ACF is a secure variant of the tubing fitting connector as the locking ring prevents flexible tube to be pulled out of the fitting.

EK-CryoFuel Clear – is a specially designed additive for computer liquid cooling systems. It comes in a weight-saving 100mL concentrated form, which just needs to be diluted with 900mL distilled water (not included). The diluted liquid forms a stable non-toxic mixture for your liquid cooling loops and contains all the necessary corrosion, scale, and biological growth inhibitors.

EK-DuraClear – 2 meters of EK-DuraClear 9,5mm (3/8″) / 15,9mm (5/8″) premium-quality transparent PVC tubing with long-lasting clarity.
EK-RGB 4-Way Splitter Cable – allows users to connect up to four RGB products to one RGB source so that they can build an aesthetically beautiful lighting system. It features standard 4-pin RGB headers and the male-male connector pins are also included in the packaging. One EK-RGB 4-Way Splitter Cable is included with EK-KIT RGB 240 and two EK-RGB 4-Way Splitter Cable are included with EK-KIT RGB 360.

The best solution for a quick and simple start!
The majority of components are pre-assembled, resulting in a quick and painless installation procedure. Once installed, these kits are a full custom loop solution. They can be upgraded with additional water blocks, for example, GPU water blocks and components, such as additional radiators. If you are cooling your rig with air and dreaming about liquid cooling, these kits will make your transition to this elite club as easy as possible!
For easier tube routing and more sleek aesthetics, EK recommends that you purchase additional angled adapter fittings.
