I just thought it strange that you would tell someone that you "feel sorry" for chips being cooled by a 480, which is more than enough rad space to keep them at temperatures that would guarantee a long life. Then you went on to imply that they should just use air instead... I didn't understand that you were holding them to unrealistic goals and standards that you use for your system, thanks for clarifying. thumb.gif

I gotta say, that's damn disappointing to read. EK makes really incredible stuff, and its a real bummer to see you guys limit yourselves to just a single colored radiator.

looks like its XSPC for this guy on the radiator front. Still gonna rock that EK White 240 though. That's too sexy to pass up

Just spray your rad white, the finish on the XSPC rads, atleast the monsta 360mm I have is really poor and once I've repaired it, I will respray it by hand and it will look a lot better.

EDIT: I was mistaken, the rad is an Alphacool not an XSPC one.

Its nice to get some feedback on the XSPC 360, that was the exact model I planned to get!

But i'll still get that over an EK. Im not exactly a DIY kinda guy, and making a cooling loop for the first time will be enough of a challenge for me. So while id love to mod an EK 360 radiator, im not gonna risk a warranty or my parts on it. I really do have the upmost respect for EK, but simple economics tells us if they don't offer the product, i'll find someone who does and give my business to them instead.

I'd just paint it, not sure how paint removes warranty tbh?

I wont speculate on the how, suffice to say that EK told us it does

You mean Alphacool? XSPC has the RX, EX and AX rads and the AX in particular is very well built (it is a white powdercoat on the aluminum frame, not paint). Alphacool has the ST30, XT45, UT60 and Monsta rads.

See above, he may not have given you the right feedback.

Yeah I was mistaken it's an Alphacool sorry. I'll edit my post now so it avoids further confusion. Thanks for the correction.

My build is extremely close to "complete," not quite so, but I suppose close enough to call "complete." tongue.gif
