    Those are alphacool st30 radiators, they are quite good and light. I have two 360.

    Would you gurus say Fractal Design is a good, reputable brand?

    Last year, my 4 year old Corsair PSU blew up. When visiting the shops, I didn't have many options to choose from.

    I ended up buying a 1000w Fractal Design modular PSU. Are they as good as or better than Corsair?

    Build looks solid, uses Alphacool pump too.

    "Alphacool DC-LT, creaming bearing bump with a speed of 2400 RPM pushing 72 L/H of water at just 25dB"

    Customizable loop and pricing is also competitive, better than some overpriced/limited Asetek based coolers from other brands.

    Nothing exactly "unique" here. CoolerMaster Glacier 240L is an expandable AIO.... Fractal Design did better with the tubes going into the pump/CPU block... The pump/CPU block on the Glacier 240L is a PITA to install because the tubes go in from opposing sides. Makes motherboard selection quite important because it needs a lot of clearance on 2 sides and not just one.

    I would say that Fractal is not as know(yet) as Corsair, but i wouldn't say its a bad brand, at least the products offer very good quality for less money then Corsair, i would say quality is about the same, consumer service i don't know do.
    I love Fractal cases, as i own one myself, Fractal Arc Midi R2 and i love it.
    Besides, The price range compared to any other expandable AIO as:
    Swiftech H220 full cooper :banana:
    Cooler Master Eisberg 240 full cooper :banana:
    Both offer about the same quality/performance and both are more expensive then the Fractal one so..seems a good deal to me, lets wait for benchmarks and reviews to decide, but so far..so good .

    Glad they are offering something different and not just another rebranded Asetek unit.

    Glacier 240L is expandable and cheaper than the Eisberg 240 but the Glacier 240L is nothing but a "modified for US" version of the Swiftech H220.
