EK Water Blocks has released a new line of CPU liquid-cooling kits. The Professional Series slots in between the company's existing two kit lines: the more value-oriented Liquid series, and the bleeding-edge Extreme series. With this new line, the company is aiming for an attractive price-to-performance ratio.
Each P Series kit comes with the company's EK-Supremacy Evo water block. This block fits all modern sockets, and it's designed for tool-free installation. The included PWM water pump from Laing features an integrated reservoir and can be mounted horizontally or vertically. Six nickel-plated compression fittings, two meters of PVC tubing, and 100mL of coolant concentrate are also included.
The kits come in three variants that differ in radiator and fan size. The P240 kit includes a 240-mm radiator that's 40mm thick and holds two 120-mm EK-Vardar cooling fans. Its bigger brother, the P360, comes with a 360-mm radiator that fits three of the same 120-mm spinners. In between, the P280 features a 280-mm radiator that's slightly thicker than its brethren at 45 mm. This radiator can be used with two 140mm fans.
These kits don't include parts for graphics-card cooling, but since these are custom loops, a GPU water block can be added later. The P240 is priced at $349.99, the P280 at $367.99, and the P360 at $372.99. The P240 and P360 are available now, while the P280 is available for pre-order and will ship March 23.
