dont get me wrong, its no heatkiller pure lump of copper block, but theyre very good for the price and quality is more than good enough. LTT and others have many videos on their parts.
I totally agree not wrong with Barrow and Bykski parts. Would be nice if Barrow would have gone beyond a standard CLC with this product. I suspect that targeted at the Asian-Pacific market. Anti-Leak Technology and the pump maybe somebody else is the OEM.
CLC (closed loop coolers) I would categorize as none expandable, none serviceable. While I tend to call products like Swiftech Drive X3 AIO and EK Predator series All-In-One (prebuild loops that are ready to go). Would like to see a copper rad based Barrow AIO at one point.
Corsair new premium Hydro X series uses Bitspower for fittings, Hardware Labs for rads, and Mayhem for coolant.
Deepcool just released the Gamer Storm Castle 240EX
