I think it's closer to $110 USD, but either way it's better than $120 and not much more than the Kuhler 920 so I'd say the price point is pretty fair.

I just want some more reviews.

doesn't any one get afraid of the fact that the radiator is aluminum and the cpu block is copper :X

Isn't the Kuhler 920's radiator the size of 1 120mm fan also? Thick however.
Looks like anything over a H80 that is a self contained design is to the point of diminishing returns when trying to cool just the CPU. I'd like to see a self contained CPU/GPU looped coolers built on the H100's design. It would also help justify the expense in that range.

Do want more reviews though.

They already addressed this issue somewhere else and claimed that they used a special anti-corrosive coolant in their systems which prevents galvanic corrosion and any other gunking/ corroding.

The Antec 920 uses a 120mm x 50mm radiator where the H80 is 38mm and the H100 is a 240mm x 120mm x 25mm.

I'm still waiting for Antec to release the Waterchill 2011C. 240mm x 120mm x 38mm.

Well as you can see the RAD can dont do so much. Water cooling has a lot of factors. Getting a bigger RAD will improve temps 2-3C at most but if the RAD is getting really hot then more RAD will help. Since even water cooling depend on air temp you cant expect 10C drop but instead the cooler to handle higher wattage CPUs. For example if the CPU was 150W , H60 would get 62C, H100 would get 58C assuming H60 has push pull. If the CPU was 300W then the difference would be something like 80C and 70C. Its same idea as car, the faster the harder, for coolers is the cooler the harder to get as its depended on air.

Yeah, I gotcha. With all that overhead I wonder how it would perform with a GPU loop. The fans would probably struggle to cool the rad with the amount of heat a GPU can throw.

Not bad really if it can keep both cool.

There was no NH-D14 or Silver Arrow to compare with.. Also, if those temps are accurate then you might as well go with one of the single rad solutions since gains are so small that it doesn't matter. Buying a case specifically to fit this would be a waste.
