EK Water Blocks has announced its new line of value-orientated water cooling kits for users looking for a "simple and efficient all-in-one solution." The EK-KIT L series will fit most recent Intel and AMD sockets and will be available in three variants, the L120, L240 and L360, which are largely identical except for the size of the radiator and number of included fans.
Each kit comes with the following:
- EK-Supreme LTX UNI CS 2013 universal CPU water block
- EK-Coolstream RAD XT radiator
- EK-FAN Silent 120 - 1600 RPM radiator fan(s)
- EK-DCP 2.2 X-RES combination reservoir and water pump
- 2 meters of EK-Tube ZMT Matte Black 16/10 mm tubing
- 100 mL of EK-Ekoolant UV Blue coolant concentrate that will yield 1L of cooling fluid
The EK-KIT L series water cooling kits are currently on sale for $179.95 to $204.95 depending on the version and can be purchased from the EK Webshop and the company's Partner Reseller Network.

I'm sorry, how exactly is this an all-in-one solution?Reply
The package you buy comes with everything needed for a water cooling system. How is it not?Reply
UV Blue coolant with matte black tubing, kinda defeats the purpose of the uv blue coolant?Reply
They have different kits that have clear tubes.Reply
UV coolant makes it easy to spot leaks if you have a UV lamp (which the kit does not come with)Reply
The UV coolant will also satisfy the niche market of people who want their coolant system to glow but at the same time don't want to see it. (all they need is to have a UV LED in the waterblock or the reservoir)
The packaging reminds me of the UV cover of my aquarium in the 90's. Makes me want to watch giant bony fish smacking their head at the glass.Reply
DarkSableI'm sorry, how exactly is this an all-in-one solution?Its not, its a full water loop kit which means everything you need for one and usually at a cheaper price than the individual parts. Also it doesn't say anywhere this is an AIO.Reply

As you say, they don't call it an 'all-in-one' but states it is for people looking for an 'all-in-one'. As in this is the closest you can get because of the customisation that is needed for water cooling. And it is only for your CPU.
DarkSable saw the 'all-in-one' and is probably complaining about the lack of a GPU block.
