    Lil bit excessive on the pricing.... Everything they are putting out now seems inflated for what you get...

    At first I was wondering why comments were saying it's overpriced considering every PC part is insultingly overpriced these days, then I realized it's just the reservoir, pump, and tubes.

    Not even the tubes, its the reservoir and pump.

    These are pure vanity products, its mostly for the looks of the build, its low volume and they produce a lot of their stuff in Europe which has high cost and overall their products are high quality - thus the high prices for most of their stuff.

    I have a Meshify S2 and was thinking about a nice distro like this, but since I cba with hard tubing and it doesn't make much sense to use with soft, its a nice option to have there, maybe get it at a 50% discount?

    I did manage to buy a RTX 2080 / 2080ti waterblock for like 65euros at a discount so there's bargains to be had :D

    P.S. and distros with D5 are hard to come by, so there's that too :D
    P.P.S I was checking the compatibility list, just FYI the Meshify S2 fits 2x SE360 rads and maybe even a PE up top and a SE in the front, they have a few mm to spare for clearance but the fittings need to go at the other ends. Probably the other cases fit 2x SE360 aswell if fittings are sorted properly :)

    Now this is a piece of excessive hardware that is expensive. At least the EK mono block people were complaining about in price served a true purpose as opposed to this over priced shtuff....
