    First thought: "But of course it's going to be expensive if there's integrated rads and things like that"

    Reads write-up: ...oh

    I had to skim a second time to make sure that that "EKWB edition" actually just meant "now with EKWB logo"

    Should be a couple of inches shallower and a couple of inches higher and be able to fit a triple in the roof...

    Otherwise, surprised EK put their name to it. I mean, they might as well have rounded it up to £300 and include a pre-fitted 240mm Predator kit.

    Well, I visited EKWB in Slovenia a few months back and they were actually surprised that these were still due for release.

    I am not sure what the full story was, so do take this with a pinch of salt, but EK seemed to suggest that they no longer wanted the partnership with Antec, but Antec could still release branded models if needed.

    I actually stayed with one of the members of EK staff and he was surprised that I had seen a sample model as he thought they were cancelled.


    Take all of the above with a pinch of salt though. They could have been trying to keep details under wraps from me or something along those lines. I have a distinct feeling it is somewhat true though as EK haven't promoted it much anywhere.

    Would probably got better gpu cooling with 2x120 fans fitted at the front [but you can only test as is, out-of-the-box, of course].

    That they are not included given the price is just taking the piss really.
