Built upon a decade of experience in liquid cooling, EK Velocity series CPU water blocks are a product of countless hours of simulations, research and market-leading engineering.
The top is CNC machined out of a solid piece of brass which is coated with black chrome or matte black, while the aesthetic cover piece is made of black anodized brushed aluminium or pure brushed aluminium. The purest copper available on the market is used for the EK-Velocity Strike cold plate which is precisely machined to a dense micro-fin structure. The contact surface itself is machine polished for better contact with the CPU IHS.

The mounting screws are streamlined and are even smaller than before for an added aesthetical perfection. The user has to replace the mounting bracket in order to mount the water block to AMD AM4 socket motherboards.
