    finally!
    no stupid iCue when every mobo has argb leads

    still unsure about the integrated block as no pics were shown w/ the fan leads hooked up to the header.

    i'm surprised they didnt mount the controller on the radiator as that would make a far cleaner build w/ no wires coming from the block... but this is still a huge improvement and i will definitely start recommending them. but now they have to beat out my #2 & #3 aio's (alphacool is #1) in MSI and Phanteks

    they're all the same, excepting bling which is one of the reasons i like them.
    the little touches are nice like rotating block caps so the orientation is always spot on with the case used.
    the technical reason i like them is the radiator mounted pump although in SFF cases measurements need to be taken.
    plus the fact they have three different 280mm models (though top 1 is ridiculous w/ fancy display)

    the regular 280mm (argb only on block cap) is less expensive than the Be Quiet! (0 rgb) and performs as well
    the Phanteks pushes the NZXT out of the top 3
