Technology >> Water Block Installation

November 5, 2015

The next step in building my new computer was to start installing water blocks. This is my first time water cooling and it has been an interesting journey of researching, shopping, and finally building. Here are a few photos I captured of the install process for the CPU water block. The water block that I used in this system is the EK-Supremacy EVO RED Edition.

Before installing the water block on the processor and motherboard, I opened it up and replaced the jet plate to match the recommendations for my particular processor.

Installing the water block on this motherboard was as simple as applying thermal paste and screwing the block to the existing CPU cooler mounting threads.
