    ^^^ agreed. I've been on air since my 2nd H80i had it's pump crap out. it would be nice to purchase a AIO cooler that's built well.

    The performance should be as good as a custom H2o loop made with EK components. ( And who are on the top of of waterblock, rads performances )

    Its funny, they was provide kits allready but not prebuilds ( All parts selectionned for build a h2o loops in a box ).

    Its a good way to create an high performance prebuild / pre filled H2o kit. Even if i can imagine the price will be way higher than some other kits in the market.

    The only thing i can think is about the liquid used for the prefilling...

    If the temps are good and performance is quiet enough, I will glady spend to get this as a replacement for my h100. Especially considering you can splice in a gpu.. Awesome stuff!

    It should, basically all parts are the one used on their performance H2o parts..

    - Waterblock is the same you can buy for your h2o custom loop. ( its not their top part, but it is still really good, its just a reduced cost version of the EVO, mostly on the backplate and packaging ( jet plate ), but performances are really close. https://shop.ekwb.com/ek-supremacy-mx

    - The Pump is a Laing 3.2 DDC similar of the one many are using in their custom loop : https://shop.ekwb.com/ek-ddc-3-2-pwm-laing-ddc-3-2-pwm

    - The rad is the PE 240 or 360 https://shop.ekwb.com/ek-coolstream-pe-360-triple .. Their best rads are the XE, but they are really really fat ( i have one, and it was a miracle my rams dont touch the fan )

    If they had use the top parts, the price will have been too high.. Im not really a fan of PWM pumps, i hope the idle temp of the water / liquid will not be too high ( but this should be controllable ).

    The result should be on paar with good custom H2o loop.

    I would venture to say this price is actually very good considering the quality of parts used.

    My only question is what do they come pre-filled with?

    This is the first AIO that I've genuinely been interested in.

    Reminds me of my old Swiftech H220, except this one has a quick connect hose to expand easier. That was the best cooling i had really intill the sealing started to leak around the waterblock which also housed the pump, then had to send the part to swiftech which took THREE months to get a replacement. Of course i didn't wait that long so bought Aphogee block and a XSPC pump and bay which was the biggest steaming pile of s**t ever made, leaks and pumps fails after a few months gone through 3 intill i gone f**k it and went back to my Silver arrow.

    Tried the Corsair H110 too thats crap more or less the same performance as my SIlver arrow but 3x louder even at it's lowest setting completely unbearable got rid of that in under a week.

    Maybe my Silver arrow has spoilt me since the fans run at 300~500rpms the same for my case fans that i could never go watercooling again cause i find the pumps far to loud!

    hoping they put something in there that dose not freeze during shipping .

    just saying
    system lacking a bay res.

    all looks good except some way of getting air out of the rad if peeps extend the loop with out prefilling the new add on's /or block cleaning/after a leak.

    I might have liked to see a bleeder port on the top of the rad [as shown in the up/down mount] to add a clear fill hose -fill port to monitor water level and to bleed air out of the system if required by noobs imo.
    even top mounted you could tilt the case back to bleed the air or to check the water level with a rad with a top port.

    edit disregard other pic's on ocn show it does have a drain and fill port

    I would assume it's a propylene glycol mixture with some sort of corrosion inhibitor. My only gripe about this kit is the QD's
