My System Specs

Default New EK CPU Block, Supremecy. Plus other new blocks.

EK-Supremacy - Acetal

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.
EK-FC680 GTX - Acetal CSQ - GeForce GTX 6x0 Series - Full Cover for Nvidia GeForce - VGA Blocks - Blocks

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

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***.

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.
