I guess you are referring to pre-filled GPU blocks? It might happen, I am not sure since they have been hesitant with them so far. There are so many options to carry and if you get stuck with stock it's a big loss. Even if they go for it, they will carry only high runner variants (reference versions).

If you talk about other Custom loop EK components, they already do carry those, we started cooperation several months ago. thumb.gif

From measurements its 3mm to high for my phanteks enthoo luxe. It only supports 65mm on the top ;(
But no problem i would mod the front to get the 360mm in there and maybe place a 420mm on top!

Will radiators come prefilled for this too?

Radiators are not planned as prefilled addons. Anybody looking to use this unit with additional radiators would probably buy additional ZMT tube and components and build his own compact custom loop, right ? nerdsmiley.png

In general the Primary idea of the Predator is to offer Quality liquid cooling to newbie segment who was considering a serious cooling upgrade (to support OC) but did not like the AIOs on the market (I don't blame them). With Predator the expandability to use CPU+GPU water blocks just like in Custom loops is the biggest win - dont you think? thumb.gif

Ofc its a great gain. But the dream would be to have a zero maintenance full custom loop aio style. So that you could add everything without the downsides of todays custom loops but still having its performance. But i guess this isnt possible for now..

The real downsides of current aio's are Bad backplates/mounting, Bad Software, loud pumps and Fans and ofc expandability. Your Predator eliminates most of the issues and is a great product. Will be the best so far.

I would love to see a 420mm Predator Extreme edition. There is no 420mm AIO out ;( But this would probably grant most performance. If i would start a custom loop, i would choose the biggest Rad possible for my case first. I want to be able to do so with AIOs too.

The thing i dont like about the Predator is that you made it so that the pump and reservoir position is bad if you want to install it on a way where you would have your case inbetween the rad and the fans.

FANS
CASE (small metall plate thing)
RADIATOR

Hmm, an idea; fitting out the 240 with Quick Disconnects for smaller cases.biggrin.gif

And can you shed some lights on the expandable products such as the prefilled QDC-enabled GPU water block? I'm kinda curious to know what they'll look like... rolleyes.gif

Is there a way to add some 3MM LEDs to my existing order? I forgot to do that with my 360s order. I pre-ordered pretty early so I don't want to lose my place in pre-order by cancelling and re-ordering.

Need a review to see how much better it is than the generic AIO's.

post #359 of 6960
Based on how mediocre generic AIO's are, it doesn't take an indepth review to know its gonna be better... smile.gif
