Compatibility and Installation
The first step during the system assembly and installation is the processor water block. EK-Supremacy is compatible with all contemporary platforms, and the replaceable retention plates and backplates included in the accessories bundle will ensure that the water block is securely fastened in systems with AMD as well as Intel processors. The installation for the LGA 2011 platform is super simple: you won’t even have to remove the mainboard from the system case. All you have to do is insert the mounting spindles into the retention holes in the socket plate and tighten the thumb-screws with springs evenly to secure the water block in place:
You won’t need any special tools here or for attaching any of the compression fittings.
The next step is to place all system components in convenient spots and connect them with tubes. The illustration below provides the preferable connection succession that will ensure maximum cooling efficiency:
Since we assembled EK-Supremacy KIT H3O HFX only for the current test session, we simply placed it next to the open system case:
Once we pumped the coolant through the system and removed all air bubbles from the contour, the coolant color changed gradually from light-green (as shown on the photo above) to clear-green. By the way, the coolant concentrate should be dissolved in 900 ml of distilled water and poured into the system through the hole at the top of the reservoir, for instance. We didn’t have any problems or difficulties during the assembly and installation of the EK-Supremacy KIT H3O HFX system.
