    Not my personal taste tbh, but they do seem to want to get into that market segment.

    Btw, can somebody explain to me what sense such an RGB block makes when you mount it normal, like on the screenshots? When you can't see anything of it? I never understood that.

    Oh dear, who designed the loop? Dropping hot water into the reservoir is big no no as it will create condensation.

    Good to see more companies making their own custom water cooling solution as Asetek does really have a monopoly on the AIO market due to their patents. Glad to see this guys from EK doing their magic for corsair , they really know what they are doing. I hope corsair don't cheap out or skip quality of this products.

    Surprisingly not actually the case, unless there is something wrong with the flow rate (way way too slow + will lead to much higher temps) in your cooling loop you will find the temperature is the same throughout.

    In my custom loop I have an Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 420mm which is a Much bigger radiator than most people fit and have a temp probe mounted on the inlet and outlet and they always measure the same temp.

    Review sites that checked this situation out also said it does not matter which order you run your custom loop as the temp is the same throughout....

    I wish them all the best! Hope they bring good products to the segment!

    And as few others said, oh boy, that's a not-so-good looking loop. Especially one for presentation at an event.

    looking good.

    I know Alphacool wants to bring a modular AIO upgrade the Eisbaer Extreme with quick release connectros and an upgrade to their pump based on the D5, as long as Corsairs build in pump is strong enough for the extra GPU this looks good.

    Water temperature is at an equilibrium throughout, there's not going to be condensation on the reservoir.

    I thank you for linking that video.
    Always wondered, if it would make a difference, if cpu or gpu is first or second.
    Kinda knew, back of my head, that it doesn´t, but this clears it all.

    How many unicorns are killed to make all this RGB?

    Poor unicorns... :(

    Personally I would expect from Corsair bit better job on this loop, not sure who done this loop but doesn't do justice to their products

    CPU block I don't like look of it, fittings they look very similar to Alphacool HF, GPU block similar to Phanteks Glacier and pump reservoir too doesn't look good

    Looking forward to seeing how these blocks perform actually but still there is lots of RGB which I'm not keen

    Hopefully they will release as well radiators

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Dear god... my eyes!

    It's as if they handed a box of parts to someone who has didn't even know Custom loop water cooling existed, and told him to build it. I mean... does anyone even use soft tubing for show builds anymore?

    And you all know this stuff is gonna make phanteks watercooling look cheap by comparison.
