EK AIO Elite 360 D-RGB Liquid cooler

We review a new product from EK, the AIO Elite 360. This all-in-one liquid cooling kit from EK comes with a new design; we test the  360mm rad version. The kits come with Vardar RGB / ARGB compatible fans. Being EK, please do expect some decent cooling performance; armed with the fans, sleeved tubing, and a proper looking cooling block, we'll see what EK has to offer in the massive LCS kit arena. The new EK-AIO 360 Elite is an upgraded and even more sophisticated version of the EK-AIO - our all-in-one CPU liquid cooler, which is already one of our most popular products. The MSRP of the new model will be around $180-200. It will also be something unique on the market because it will be delivered with a whopping six fans in total (for a Push-Pull setup), a more efficient pump, and some extra add-ons as well. 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. Armed with pretty nice looks, sleeved tubing, and an attractive price, EK offers a competitive model in the massive LCS kit arena.  The EK AIO Elite D-RGB is an all-in-one liquid cooling solution for desktop PCs and is initially available in a 360mm version. The kit that we test is a self-contained (AIO) CPU cooling unit based on liquid cooling. It does not require much setup installation. 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. This ease of use extends to its support of the latest Intel and AMD sockets, including the latest Intel LGA 1155/1156/2011 and AMD FM2 sockets, as well as AM4 for Ryzen but not Threadripper processors.
