I've used EK products for years, and they are (and always have been) WAY over priced for what you get. WAY over. Watercool sells better products at better prices. EK is a gouging company, which makes them the perfect bed buddy for Nvidia. Warchild alluded to it above, why charge a premium for a BACK PLATE?!?! That doesn't get any more expensive to produce. Just a sign that EK are gougers. They make ok stuff sometimes, but nothing that justifies their exorbitant prices.

Yep, and being the anti-fan of RGB, I want a nickel block without the lighting.

I loved their radiators. Had a good thickness, good FPI etc. Sadly the cost was excessive in Norway.
