    I see they're not using an Asetek design, must not of wanted to pay the fees.

    The pump motor is obviously not a real AC 3 Phase motor as such a supply is not available in a PC.

    For a second i thought they entered the custom market,that would have been cool.

    So, theres 2 tube on the CPU block and there are 3 inlet / outlet holes on the radiator (and only 2 with tubes), am i seeing it wrong or?

    Screams inefficiency to me this design... hardly the outlet is not affected by the hot water flow around it.
    Not to mention the highly reduced dissipation area due to the pump in the middle.
    The 3 outlets are probably a design leftover, in the scarce photos in the product page they are positioned in the middle.

    And c'mon what the heck is this:
    "Unlike other AIO liquid cooling products, the motor is moved to the water-cooled row to reduce the damage and noise caused by the extra vibration on the motherboard and the CPU"

    Damage to the CPU and motherboard and reduced noise moving the pump to the radiator??? Oh my...

    I don't believe it for 1 second the pump is a real 3 phase.
    It would need a phase converter; more space, more heat and for what?
    Looking at the specs not performance and neither improved noise since it's rated 18.4 dbA.
    Doesn't make sense for such a low power (4 Watt!) pump.

    Another terrible marketing gimmick mistake.

    Would like to see the reports from people who actually ended up with a damaged CPU or motherboard caused by one of the better AIO's vibration. :D

    Damn it @mannix, that's one damn damning summary, damn it, especially with MSI being a 'fairly' well known brand.
    Will be 'interesting' ;) once we get the reviews and damn it, I can't wait.

    reduced noise, maybe
    my corsair H115i made a loud buzzing noise when mounted on the 9900k but zero noise nor vibrations if handeld outside the pc and was barely audible on amd it just didn't like being tightened on the cpu with the intel mounting frame but you don't really have a choice to have good contact
