They're ok, but slightly longer fins will provide better heat dissapation, there are many good choices out there refer back to the link i gave you, there was a full page of choices

I agree, very tasty rads-they look much better than my RX & EX models, in one of the reviews that i read online, there was also white/copper version -the outer part -ie casing is aluminium only, and you can slide out the copper innards for better cleaning (i guess)-on the whole, they look very good though, just have to wait for the performance reports now...............HEADS UP PEOPLE:
Just a quick observation -i'm sure that many of you out there have have needed to order some small item for your rigs etc, and thought twice about it because of the shipping fees or similar problems.
I have some advice (this may sound obvious to some, to those i apologise) I actually need two small items, the first is an EKWB HF SUPREME plexi top -Fonne found one for me (thanks mate), and so i went to the site, and well... ill let the picture do the talking:
It's ridiculous! I have contacted these guys in the past and they said that shipping is expensive because of the insurance. ( i must also add that i wrongly accused them of having a faulty registration system, i apologised after, it was all my fault
Now before some of you guys start running to this retailers defense, let me move on a bit, (save your comments until the end
I also need a new axis for my Aquastream xt Ultra, so i visited the site and the result was this:
Not much difference you say? Well actually, that's not exactly correct.
I also contacted Aquacomputer about their shipping, and Sven kindly explained that the system does not always pick up smaller/lighter items, BUT
(and this is a big BUT
), he would gladly place the item in a padded envelope and post it for less. Thank you Sven, much appreciated!
Now ok, there is a 13 euro difference between the two items, but when will common sense, and not greed prevail with some of these retailers?
That excuse (imho) vis a vis insurance in my case, is ridiculous, hell, i was even willing to absolve them of all liability should the item go missing-i would have done this in a letter before they posted the top to me, so insurance coverage would be a moot point. I have sold items such as my Corsair H80, a couple of mobos, all of which cost far more than the plexi top, and the postage(registered&express&insured NEVER
came to more than 15 euros!)
These guys have just lost a customer, whilst retailers like Aquacomputer have increased the respect i have for them as a customer.
So the moral of the story, is always contact the retailer in such cases, you may be pleasantly surprised-there are still some out there that care about the customer.
To the other retailers- Its 2012, and money is much harder to come by, ok you are not running a charity, but we keep you in business, try to be a bit more elastic in your dealing with customers.
Both sides win in the end
