I'm not a fan. Even though I just ordered a Supreme HF yesterday I won't be cancelling my order.

It seems they are doing a new design for everything. Now this, is ugly.

Those are stupidly ugly. Geez EK.

Fugly indeed.

You know what will make them even uglier? When they start "nickel" plating that junk and it flakes/ corrodes :rofl:

To me it seems that EK is going for a clean, simple, straight edged look on their blocks (Which I kinda like) but the ''circles'' sort of fight with that theme. I'm not sure what the circles are for. It would look better without the circles. I would buy if it weren't for the circles.....CIRCLES!!!

I much prefer the look of AquaComputer or HeatKiller. Even without the circles, these, IMO, look like plain s***.

Please kill these with fire.

Looks like EK put the last nail in the coffin.

I don't think this is a design decision; I think they are trying to cut the cost of production. We already know they tried to blackmail at least two vendors for 10k USD.
