EK Water Blocks EK-Nucleus CR360 Lux D-RGB AIO Cooler Review

EK, or their full abbreviation EKWB, which people often say as EK Water Blocks, which really means Edvard König Water Blocks if you want to get really technical, may not have the most unified naming structure, but without a doubt, they’re regarded as one of the best water cooling companies in the whole world. However, while they’re best known for their custom loop premium cooling components, did you know they also made ready-to-use all-in-one coolers? Presenting the rather clunky named EK Water Blocks EK-Nucleus CR360 Lux D-RGB All-In-One CPU Water Cooler, which costs around £200, I’m eager to see if some of the premium high-end magic from EK can be filtered down into a more easy-to-use consumer-friend AIO format.

EK-Nucleus CR360 Lux D-RGB

The EK-Nucleus AIO CR360 Lux D-RGB is an all-in-one liquid cooling solution offering a stylish fan-like gradient lighting effect on the pump unit to suit your needs for contemporary addressable RGB aesthetics. It is designed to fit most popular cases on the market today and features a triple fan setup with a slim 360mm radiator. Compatible with most modern processors, it is also ready for the next-gen Intel socket.

Addressable RGB Lighting – Customize your all-in-one system to match your setup with its fully addressable RGB lighting effects. This closed-loop liquid CPU cooler offers a plug-and-play solution with a fan-like D-RGB lighting effect around the pump top for all who search for that perfect RGB AIO aesthetics.

This product is compatible with popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers. The arrow marking on the 3-pin LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the addressable RGB (D-RGB) header.

Rotatable Pump Top – The top allows you to re-orient the D-RGB EK badge no matter in which direction the cooler is installed. The orientation can be changed in 90° increments, so if the cooler is installed upside down, rotate it 180 degrees to display the logo right side up. Regardless of the angle needed to install the AIO, it will always offer clean and aligned aesthetics.

New Positioning of Rotary Fittings – The AIO CR360 Lux comes pre-installed with reinforced and sleeved rubber tubing, now featuring finer threads. The fittings are covered with an aesthetic black radiator cover at the connection of the tubing and the radiator to ensure a sleek design and flushed line with the added fans. The improved position of rotary fittings on the other side, which are now placed next to each other, allows the EK-Nucleus AIO to be installed in even the tightest spaces.

Universally Compatible and Easy to Install – All EK-Nucleus AIOs come with a universally compatible CPU water block, fitting all the latest Intel and AMD CPU sockets. The installation process is very straightforward, thanks to the included manual and mounting mechanism. This product requires enough space to mount a single slim 360mm radiator, making it compatible with almost all modern cases.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
