Better connection. SATA is much more reliable than 4Pin Molex, which is not just a pain to ensure connection for those with lots of cables behind the panel, but it's less likely to break or have it's connection lost. SATA>Molex.

Thank. You.

I freakin' hate molex. What does the warranty cover in regards to leaks, if leaks happen with this unit? I read this part here but it was speaking more so of "time" damages.

Question 1: How much? Answered by post above...

Question 2: How would you mount it in the phantom?

Question 3: What sort of warranty coverage is on it? I see it is covered for two years, but does that cover my hardware, or just the cooler?

Great product otherwise, but I see many unanswered questions with the information that has been released so far.

I'm probably doing a custom loop for myself when I get around to it, but I like the idea of a 280mm closed loop to stand out from the pack by having that extra rad space.
