All you need is EK - Mounting plate Supreme 775, 1156 & 1366 Mounting plate Supreme 775&1366 [Mounting plate Supreme 775&1366] - $7.84 : DazMode, Watercooling enthusiasts store

Serious that Supreme LT Block is really good, stay with it.. the XT might have a good performance, but the quality isn't good, I wouldn't want to lay hands on a block that the internals are messed from new, that product will not last long.. Unlike a supreme, c'mon EK makes real good quality stuff.. stay with the block, or ima come with daz (dazmode) and beat ya

I would take HK or new generation Supreme HF (NCIX has it and we will have too in a week). If you're on budget LT is hell of the block, I use it myself.

im using an EK supreme and it works great, i am going to invest very soon in a backplate though to make things fit better then just bolt through.
