In contrast to the normal versions of the cover is also made here of nickel-plated copper. This will also leave over the top heat to the water flowing through, thus the cooling capacity is higher. But the optics benefited because the bright nickel layer of the copper lid looks very classy. Inside provide 49 small pins for increased surface area to better dissipate heat to the water. Due to the optimized design more than 2.2 degrees can be achieved at lower temperatures 115Xer sockets compared to the previous coolers thanks to higher flow rates.
This set combines the Supremacy EVO cooler with EK Water Blocks Indigo Xtreme TIM solution. This is a thermal spacer (ETI), the right between a CPU and a water-block (or heatsink) is used to keep the processor cool. Unlike lofty and high thermal interface pads made of metal or liquid metal alloys Indigo Xtreme is a closed and dense in itself structure that uses a phase change metal alloy (PCMA), the surface roughness fills on the CPU heatsink and the CPU and is thus very flat fails.
Indigo Xtreme achieves high thermal performance by optimizing the use of molten, oxide-free material, resulting in a lower contact and bulk resistance results. The intermediate layer thus obtained is free of bubbles and robust, with low thermal contact resistance and large. This variant is only suitable for processors on the Intel sockets 1150, 1155 and 1156. To bring Indigo Xtreme, is to adhere strictly to the instructions provided. A multiple-use of applicators is not provided.
The waterblock is shipped without the necessary connections. These are therefore sold separately.
