About this deal

These liquid cooling kits are pre-fitted with a single non-expandable loop and are ready to install straight out of the box, you pop the fans on there and it's ready to go in. Note also that the fact that this is a monolothic, HEDT, large-area IHS has the potential to significantly shuffle some results. Have installed only 1 camera so far due to adverse weather but I'm very impressed by the night vision in particular. For comparison, we have included the rated speed of the fans to have reference in determining the Auto PWM range. The CPU block already comes with applied EK thermal paste and several different backplates for a wide range of compatibility with the latest CPU sockets.

Dynamic Addressable D-RGB lightingCustomise your EK AIO to match your set-up with its range of fully addressable D-RGB lighting effects. In our cooler performance charts, EK's new Nucleus AIOs handily deliver the best performance levels that we have seen from any heatsink. EK Nucleus AIO is collecting accolades that speak volumes about the level of performance and innovation packed into its sleek design. In today's review, the EK-AIO 240 D-RGB watercooler will be tested against a massive number of competing coolers, including its larger sibling, the 360 D-RGB we reviewed previously. The newly updated coolers feature an aRGB-accented pump face with a cooling block pump based on an SPC line pump.This is a common strategy and, thus far, we haven’t read anything horribly out-of-line or overmarketed. The arrow marking on the 3-pin LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the A-RGB (D_RGB) header. Note that this chart becomes irrelevant if you mount your EK AIO in the front, as you’d be relying on case fans, at that point.

With our AIOs, ensuring ultra-low temperatures, even during the most intense gaming sessions, has never been easier! And we see that materialize here: The EK AIO 360 is functionally equal to the NZXT Kraken X72, X63, and H115i Platinum.

With a pump and radiator shipped pressure tested, it is pre-filled and sealed directly from the factory to provide maintenance-free operation for years. Learn the latest EK news and water-cooling tips and tricks, or share your thoughts with our team and other enthusiasts. The EK AIO 240 runs at about 54 degrees over ambient in our testing, which ranks it functionally equivalent to the Kraken X62 280mm CLC with the older Asetek Gen5 pump, while the EVGA CLC 360 and Kraken X72 show poor static pressure performance at the restrictive noise levels we’ve set. For at least the AMD Ryzen IHS size, we’d say that EK’s pre-applied paste is fine, and that you should feel no quarrels with using it as-is. Meet EK’s ultimate All-in-One CPU liquid coolers offering premium aesthetics, cooler-than-ever temperatures, easy installation, and zero maintenance.
