Hi Phill! So far i'm pretty amazed at just how many things you get in the A240G, especially when it's the price of a couple of blocks, pulling out a pump, rad, fittings, coolant, splitters, backplate from the tiny almost weightless box is amazing. Especially when none of it seems compromised, like the mounting mechanisms on early predators which were frankly retarded. Nothing silly like that so far, my biggest criticism
dislike would be the 10/13mm tubing. I can't fathom why its adopted by anyone, easier to assemble than 10/16mm and perhaps easier to cut with plebby scissors so maybe it works for the audience but 10/16mm resistance to kinks makes it mandatory for me. Still i'm very excited to adapt some aluminium fittings.

I was wondering where you were, what took so long? Maybe I should add PARVUM to the thread title

You know what, I can get behind this.
They look great!
Exactly! and even respectable DDR2 already had factory heatsinks so perhaps even more functionally defunct than we are giving them credit for.
Actually a Czech retailer, they have 40+ of each type yet nowhere else in the world seem to have any. Although apparently @derickwm
is buying up all remaining stock in a speculative attempt to corner the market.

Excited to see where this goes next!
Tell me about that, the shroud craze of hiding anything that isn't a low poly RGB illuminated steel reinforced gaming dragon is wearing thin faster than China's ability to laser out cable combs. Fin stacks, heatpipes and vast arrays of power circuitary, that's real stuff just like the Auto Union.
