Purchased along with other parts to create my first custom loop in 2011. Since then it has lasted for over 3 years in a daily use gaming computer at 4.2Ghz with zero problems. Keeps a i5-2500K @ <40 degrees Celsius under load. and as low as 32C @ idle. Changed the fluid once at about the 2 year mark and I clean the radiator roughly every 6 months with canned air while grounded. Highly recomended.
Rated #20 in Water Cooling
Pros: Really good performer and ecellent build quality
Cons: I don't like the finish,too matt for my tastes
It seems that xspc has done a really good job here.They have made a kickass radiator that performs like rx series,while it keeps the slim size of the rs series
