EKWB is a PC water-cooling juggernaut that started as just one man’s simple idea. From that humble beginning, they have quickly become a dominant force in the enthusiast community with high-quality components for just about any custom water-cooling loop. The company’s numerous awards show their continued attention to detail and exceptional quality. Other than a few hiccups along the way, EKWB has been wildly successful, and after their recent foray into all-in-one liquid coolers, they are now ready to take things to the next level.
In today’s review, I put the EK-AIO Elite 360 D-RGB to the test, pitting it against numerous high-end cooling solutions to see just how well it performs. Like its predecessor, this design does not come from Asetek or Coolit and is instead a custom in-house solution. The pump inside the CPU block is based on the company’s SPC series and has seen an upgrade for this release. While the radiator is aluminium rather than copper, it has a lot more heft to it than I expected for even a 360 mm offering. Add in the six EK-Vardar S 120ER D-RGB fans and you have a killer solution, at least when glancing at its spec sheet. So without further ado, let’s take a closer look at what EKWB’s latest AIO is capable of.
