Predator 240 All In One Watercooling Solution - Revision 1.1

EK Water Blocks, premium PC liquid cooling gear manufacturer from Slovenia, is proud to announce EK-Predator AIO product line, the next big thing that will shake up the liquid cooling market. Originally custom loop parts manufacturer for enthusiast segment is now offering high end complete all-in-one (AIO) liquid cooling solutions for the mainstream market.

EK has taken top performing, market proven components from its existing Enthusiast product line and assembled them together into one compact pre-filled solution. Absolutely no compromises were made when designing the EK-Predator. Enthusiasts and PC builders alike will truly get the best of what the market can offer in a compact, expandable, out-of-the-box liquid cooling solution.

EK-Predator is pre-filled and pre-assembled CPU liquid cooling unit. It comes in two different versions; 240mm and 360mm and provides extreme cooling performance unseen in the AIO segment so far. It also uses EK-Vardar high static pressure fans in combination with PWM controls to provide minimal noise footprint, which is a common issue for existing AIO users.

Technical highlights:

Hovercore is a new, revolutionary design of radiator dampeners that prevents transfer of pump vibrations further down the unit and into the chassis, thus resulting in vibration free and silent operation.

Supremacy MX CPU water block, top performer in Enthusiast segment, is specifically designed for Intel CPUs and offers great hydraulic and thermal performance. Carefully machined copper base is made from purest copper available and is further polished to absolute mirror finish. This alone greatly improves the cooling performance of the block.

CoolStream PE radiator – 240mm or 360mm, has a full Copper core being superior to aluminum alternatives in terms of heat dissipation. In conjunction with EK-Vardar fans the result is increased performance across an entire fan operational range, thus delivering results both at low and high airflow operation.

Vardar fans – two on Predator 240 and three on Predator 360 – are high static pressure fans developed in-house specifically for liquid cooling systems. With low noise profile and PWM technology built in, you can always control the RPM and keep the fans silent while maintaining excellent cooling performance.

DDC pump is a powerful 6W liquid cooling pump providing 2-3x higher flow rate compared to other AIOs on the market. It’s also PWM controlled, allowing for automatic pump speed regulation depending on your CPU temperature. Full performance on demand or whisper quiet operation in idle mode!

Integrated Fan splitter hub reduces cable clutter and keeps the unit aesthetically clean. Predator pump and fans plug into the unit itself with only one PWM cable going into CPU Fan socket, while a single SATA molex cable powers the complete unit.

Best AIO by far

Well I guess I shall jump on the hype train. Having owned this beast for almost 2 weeks now, it is nothing short of impressive. The build quality is amazing, everything fits perfectly with my case (Corsair 750D) and the tubing looks rather good in person, a lot better than in pictures.

It keeps my 6700k at sub 70C in CPU stress tests and i have it overclocked to 4.65ghz @ 1.325v.

I recommend this product if you have the extra cash but don't quite want to shell out for a custom loop (even though the components are basically what you'd get in a custom loop).

You can also put see through tubing and change the liquid, but that's a lot of effort.

A pre-configured, pre-filled, custom loop using the best possible components

A fantastic product that's how I feel about the EK Predator, I have this fitted to my new build X99 5930k - Asus Rampage / Phanteks case.

I really wanted this AIO cooler and here’s why... DDC pump, Supremacy MX CPU block split flow – pure copper core, CoolStream radiator with integrated fan hub, EPDM rubber tubing ZMT with compression fittings, cable managed Vadar fans neat & tidy.

The performance of this cooler I nothing short of impressive… had a full days gaming session 9+hrs BF3 & BF4, GTA V and finished off playing World of Warships, the thing never broke a sweat. CPU temps never went above 46c, the fans never went above 600rpm maintaining this temperature.
That’s where the EK cooler really excels its keeping the cpu cool & indeed the entire system at comparable temperature’s to my other system with a Corsair H100i, BUT the big difference is the noise & effort. The EK predator is doing this with a lot less effort and a lot less noise, sure “ramp the fans up” and the temps drop dramatically and the noise levels increase. But the truth is you just don't need to… Just let the motherboard look after the cpu temps.

Yes the EK Predator is expensive, yes you can buy AIO coolers for less. But when you break it down & look at what you are paying for in the EK Predator - A pre-configured, pre-filled, custom loop using the best possible component parts.

this cooler

bought one of theses when fitted to the cpu notice water leeking out of the cpu block had to tighten to stop it from leeking wasn't quite sure if it would leek again so bought another from a different company and yet same again this time from the rad the fitting thatgo into the pump are not solid they are plastic mold for the price it should of made a little better would not get one of these again I would say to the ones who buys this before fitting make sure you check to see if every thing is tight before adding emailed ek all you got off them is they are checked at the factory gods knows who stevie wonder

    "...we put this EK-XLC Predator 240 up against the latest version of last year’s winner in this category – the Corsair H110i GT. In our test rig with a Core i7 4820K running at 4.5GHz, the Predator was a solid 5 degrees cooler than the Corsair."

  • OC3D - Silver

    "There's some real finesse gone in to this, not least of which is the Hovercore dampening technology that EK have used to acoustically decouple the 6W DDC pump from the body of the radiator and thus reduce the noise vibration harshness transmitted into the chassis."
