About this deal

We would have liked to see a 280mm version for users who have space for dual 140mm fan setups, but not triple 120mm, and an obvious omission of the series is the lack of support for HEDT AMD platforms which is a shame.

I can't comment on whether it is worth the extra cost over other 360 AIO's but I'm happy with it so far. Dynamic Addressable D-RGB lighting – Customize your EK AIO to match your set-up with its range of fully addressable D-RGB lighting effects.At the time of writing this review, the EK-AIO is available in 120mm, 240mm and 360mm versions for mainstream desktop platforms. And while it requires a bit more planning for logistics and case mounting, the cooler’s style and performance notably follow EKWB’s primary DNA. Keep in mind that removing the radiator cap will void your warranty brand new so don’t do it unless needed.

The inclusion of an aRGB + PWM fan hub provides centralized lighting and fan RPM control and utilizes a set of PWM and aRGB accessory cabling. Fittings on the aio are also metal and appears to be screwed on so they are probably removable just like any other ek products are.This product requires enough space to mount a single slim 360mm radiator, making it compatible with almost all modern cases. Regardless of the angle needed to install the AIO, it will always offer clean and aligned aesthetics. We ship all products in unopened boxes directly as received from our manufacturer in brand new and in perfect condition. Checked the paste application multiple times and apart from some not ideal high spots / low spots, didn't noticed anything significant. Built into both its CPU block and six Vardar S fans, the EK AIO Elite offers a range of color configurations controlled from either your motherboard or standalone D-RGB controller.

Comes with 6 ek vardar rgb fans compatible with major motherboard lighting softwares such as mystic light, fusion rgb, and asus aura along with the rgb ek logo on the block. I'd like to see the same tests done again with ONLY the front three fans installed, to compare the difference. I think the paste application looks much better (but do note that I switched to the paste provided in the kit and it's more viscous / dry).While being completely silent in operation, the pump still seems to have the power to provide high-performance cooling on thermally demanding CPUs such as the Intel Core i9-9900K that is equipped to our test bench. The temps with EK are way worse and it makes no sense given the size of the radiator, pump, coldplate and newer design. New EK-Nucleus AIO Dark comes with pre-installed and reinforced rubber tubing, featuring fine nylon mesh sleeves and aluminum covers on each tube that ensure extreme durability.

Also comes with extra hardware in case you loose a screw or two and some extra cables that look like extensions.It comes with a universally like minded CPU water-block, along side a pre-crammed pump-reservoir combo. Often manufacturers supply a simple RGB lighting controller with their AIOs, but this is missing with the EK-AIO which is a shame and will increase the overall cost of the device for those having to purchase an RGB controller separately. Overall, the EK-AIO looks very well built out of high-quality materials and there is a balanced mix of understated looking black parts as well as dual RGB lighting zones.
