Interesting that they decided to release a 240mm liquid cooler.

Overpriced Astek with lights and whatnot? No thanks.

They will sell a gazillion of them though.

Damn that lighting on the cooler...

I want to see the performance increase though, not really interested in those looks.

lol... that was a good one! +1

You shouldn't even be permitted to post in the air cooler section. PCPP is going to create a custom liquid cooling section to commemorate your builds...

:( Heh, alas plenty of other builds on here with custom loops gave me inspiration.

Anyways, nothing against AIO's per say, but the price is really steep for the 140 mm IMO. When a Solid tower air cooler comes in half the price and can perform better. Of course not all about the costs but still the price on these is going up!

Nice. Look like they'll be perfect for the s340/Elite. Looks really nice as well.

I think I'll be very happy with the new X52...

It seems to me like they are trying to compete with Corsair for the AIO but for performance, they should set their sights on beating the A80 or the EK radiators instead.

That being said, if they perform well, this could be an interesting refresh of their older products and the a 240mm is often easier to fit in some cases.

Hmm. It's still an all Astek unit, but it comes with a 6 year warranty which is really good.\

Now we gotta see how it performs against the EK Predator.

The EK Predator should perform better and it is more expensive.

This and the predator still out performed by the Corsair H100i under stock loads and overclocked loads and at a MUCH cheaper cost. But I guess if you want flashy lights shrug

I wonder what the chances are that we're going to start seeing these things in every other build with a CLLC...

Let's just hope they did some work to the block and not just add lights...
