EK Releases New Look for Supremacy CPU Blocks

EK has released a new version of its Supremacy CPU blocks. While the block itself features no changes over the previous Supremacy CPU block, the aesthetics have changed.

Previously, all of the EK-Supremacy CPU blocks had a top cover design that was produced with a circle pattern, which many buyers liked, but there was also a group of enthusiasts who didn't like the design and would have preferred a simpler design. Consequently, EKWB has released a new CSQ among the Supremacy lineup of CPU blocks. This new CSQ carries four different versions. There is a model with a plexiglass top and a nickel base, a model with a plexiglass top and a copper base, a model with an Acetal top and a copper base, and another with an Acetal top and a nickel base.

The current Supremacy water blocks with the circle pattern will remain in production as this cleaner CSQ is not meant to replace it. Those who already own a Supremacy water block but want a model with the new, cleaner look but don't want to buy a full new block, you're in luck. The top cover is also for sale with an MSRP of just €14.95.

    Actually these blocks are here to replace the circle design, a poll on block design was held by EK and plain beat circles with clear also beating frosted, in both cases by a landslide. As a result the circles/frosted design was scrapped for HD7990/Titan water blocks and all future water blocks. The old CPU blocks will remain in production for a while as their predecessors did (easier in this case as they are essentially the same block), however no new blocks are going to be created using the circle design.

    pretty sure the circles were an attempt to define themselves from other brands like noctua with their caramel colour

    Much cleaner, I like it. That being said, I agree with the big troll that the circles kinda made EK's brand - just like noctua, it's hideously ugly, but that's how you know it's a good part. :P
