[vmodtech] SCYTHE APSALUS120 Review - Page 4

The ambient temps in the test were probably 20c, they were cold. Water cooling does not reduce idle temps, infact they go up alittle from air cooling. But load temps drop.

Asetek that makes it says they arent selling it as a single unit, you will only beable to buy it with a graphicscard, but I guess the price is [gfx card + antec 620 price = total cost]

What a stupid name. It took me a few seconds and reading it 3 times just to figure out how to pronounce it. NOT a very good marketing strategy if you ask me.

Simple fan screws like every other radiator is not good enough for you? Or are you referring to the mounting of the CPU block, because to me it seems pretty standard.

It would have sold better had it been an h70 with AP-15's tongue.gif

Surprised at how many of these things they are now. I've now been tempted to go full loop though just to see how much lower my computer can though.

This. At the moment you either go high end air cooling or go for "real" water cooling.

and this. get a 240mm rad closed loop and if the performance is better than the silver arrow/D14 I would probably get it.

Also, I like the idea of a close looped GPU.
