Yes I'm seeing these things as overpriced because I can buy a full size car radiator for $60 new and chop it into about 15 of those rads and then slap some generic pond pump in there and get the same results. I was hoping to find a pump/cpu block combo so I could use it with any radiator I like and be done

CHeck this out: http://martinsliquidlab.i4memory.com...ve_Review.html

it was $90 when it was first made. I'm not sure why its so cheap at micro center but I'm guessing its because there is only one in stock and its in Kansas

That's not really true. Car radiators are designed to be long-term durable, and they have thick fins and really tight spacing. You'd need some pretty hefty fan action to move air through a car radiator.

I'm curious how you plan on fitting everything in the case at all. Looking at the M40, I don't really see how you could get a 240+ radiator without modding the @%# out of the case.

I may just send the store 31.00 (plus shiping) just to get this and check it out.I was more impressed with the pump than the block but both had drawbacks.The block was pretty light (low mass) and the pump inlets and outlets are not very flexible but for 31.00 I just may play around with it. +rep to rindoze for finding an interesting product that may be useful.I certainly have blown away 31.00 off this forum before.
