    Gigabyte GA-X99-Ultra Gaming-EK Socket LGA2011-3 ATX Motherboard Product Description

    Gigabyte GA-X99-Ultra Gaming-EK Socket LGA2011-3 ATX Motherboard 

    EK-Supremacy EVO X99 is the extreme performance CPU water block, developed specifically for Intel® X99 / LGA-2011-3 platform and comes with pre-assembled, error-preventing mounting mechanism. EK Water Blocks has designed this water block for gamers and performance seeking enthusiasts. With its unmatched thermal performance, very high-flow design and its modularity, EK-Supremacy EVO X99 is the result of numerous CFD analysis and rigorous testing at highest possible overclocks.
    The top is made from CNC machined acrylic glass while the insert is made from injection moulded transparent MABS polymer. Plexi top has two slots for easy installation of 3mm LED diodes (not enclosed). Specifically designed and carefully machined copper base (sometimes referred to as 'cold plate') is made from purest copper available on the market and is further polished to absolute mirror finish. This alone greatly improves the cooling performance of EK-Supremacy EVO X99.

    EK-TIM Ectotherm, best in-class thermal compound (electrically non-conductive) is enclosed.
