    Another Excellent Review from Deton.
    This is by far the best looking 5870 WB in my opinion, the Nickel plate is really top notch.
    Dont really like the way its not really "compression fitting friendly"

    Well done with the review i was expecting this one,wanted to compare the ekwb with the koolance.The fitting restriction was good to know cause i am looking for the 5970 wb and i am using 1/2ID 3/4OD.The standoffs are the same with the Ek Classified wb and its a pain to keep in place.

    Great review!

    The finish on these blocks is one of the best EK has managed. Quality nickel, no machine marks.

    This however,
    There is a “Void if removed” sticker affixed between the top cover and copper base.
    is one of the dumbest things EK has ever done. Your warranty is voided if you clean the block? Get real. Nice move Eddy. Maybe thin the groove channel to grip the o-ring better? I'm also a little bewildered as to why the mounting spacers aren't integrated yet. I could have sworn that was one of their goals last year.

    I've run into that problem of larger comps not fitting on the backside of EK VGA blocks before. I easily solved that by using a BP G1/4 Extender (BP-WTP-C40) on the base. They're small on the outside.

    Pity they didn't send you two blocks, and their new SLI bridge. I'd like to see some investigation into that. Or one of their new rads. Anyway, great review Deton, thanks.

    Every time I buy from EK I do so directly. They always return emails, and always ship promptly. Good people to deal with.


    PS, this Thursday Watercool is supposed to announce the Mo-Ra 3. You should get your hands on one of those.

    The 5970 ports are placed further apart than the 5870 so I don't think you should have the problem with them touching but I'm not sure if they touch the stock backplate though.

    Yes the stand alone standoffs are little hard to keep them in place to install the block if you don't use a little dap of thermal grease or Die-electric grease (which I used) or Vasoline on them.

    I'm sure the 45° adapter will work as well but a good design should make user to buy special adatper to make it works with certain fitting.

    I'm current just reinstalled this block with Bitspower 3/8"ID-1/2"OD compressiong fittings, they are barely fit. The fitting cuts into the stock backplate, I have to used a plier to tighten the fittings.

    Regarding about "Void" sticker; they still honor the craftmanship warranty but not the leakage if the seal is broken. Because all their blocks have been pressure/leak tested before they ship them, the only leakage can happen when the user open it and damage the O-ring...etc.

    Speaking of the O-ring, I had heck of the time trying to put this block O-ring back. It kept popping out of the groove. You're right if the groove perfectly the same thickness of the ring then it will fit snuggly and hold the ring in plate like we have seen it with other blocks.

    I didn't ask for two blocks because I don't have two 5870s and also the SLI bridge just recently available. This block sent to me months ago.

    it's very hard to get European companies to send sample to North America unless they want to penetrate the North America market then they will response to our request. I have sent serveral request to Watercool for the block but they're ignoring the request though.

    Yea i looked carefully and i think it will be fine.You have a point though about the backplate i think i will contact them see if there is any issue with my fittings.I was waiting for the Omni but i heard it will be expensive (like 300$+ without the adaptor) and cant afford this atm so i guess i will go with just add a gpu wb on my loop Ek or Koolance.

    Between EK and Koolance, EK wins, hands down. The issue is quality, and EK has ten times the quality of Koolance.

    The only Koolance product I still own are two sets of QDCs, and I've never even used them. I should probably put them in the local used market, damn things were expensive.

    Hey guys, we have one more GPU water block review coming, and then a full roundup.

    No doubt this EK block is fantastic, there's a reason it got our Editor's Choice Award. But it has a couple very minor drawbacks. Just about every block has some drawback, whether aesthetics, quality, performance, easy of use, flow restriction, or price. There is no "perfect" block out there that we've seen.

    Question is what is the user willing to "compromise" on for their setup? I'm not sure there is one right answer, because each person's situation is different. Me? I don't care so much about looks or price, as long as it works great and won't fall apart, but that's just my preference.

    In any event, we'll have the last GPU block up next week, and then the big roundup following that.

    Heh, I wouldn't. I change graphics cards like I change socks. I still haven't figured out how to build a loop that easily lets me drain, fill, and swap blocks extremely fast. Deton has such a setup, but I don't think I have the space to copy his setup.

    For me and GPUs, it's either stock cooling 24/7 or dry ice for benching heh.

    IMO, both Koolance and EK has excellent quality. EK has stepped up a knotch in product quality this year. I guess labour cost in Slovenia must lower than any other country so Eddy can manafacturing right in his back yard instead of manufacturing in China or Korea...etc.

    It's hard to keep an close eye to the quality when you have the factory in another country unless less you have excellent trained employees.

    In my observation, Koolance uses black nickle plating vs. bright nickle plating like Ek uses them. And only Koolance uses some lubrication for the seal ring, no other blocks from other manufacture done this.

    Skyguy doesn't WC his Vid. He's swapping the card for review regularly therefor it's to painful for him to WC the card.

    I can feel your pain my friend

    I had to separate loops. The entire GPU loop is sitting on my desk and I use XSPC Pump/res for quick and easy priming and draining. For swapping the blocks, I just pull out the card, install the new block then install the card. Now just un-hook the tubbing from the old block and keep the tubes higher above the res sitting on the desk so I don't have to drain the coolant at all. But you have really be carefull with this be accident do happen sometimes.:$

    Just wait two more months, and switch over to CoolIt's OMNI A.L.C. Then if you are needing to remove the blocks constantly, just add in a few of Koolance's Quick Disconnects. No fuss, no muss.
