The EKWB Phoenix 360 is end of life. No longer available for sale. I know not why.

Technology is NOT a liberator . Whom technology serves is a class question.
Technology wielded by the capitalist class benefits only the exploiters.
Technology wielded by the working class will serve ALL Humanity.

I have yet to refill it bit it is not abig deal. The cap for the reservoir is conveniently located. I have heard no breast beating from EKWB aio users. I am not aware they have a 360 or 420mm AIO. Alphacool does have the 280mm Eisbaer Extreme AIO with a professional quality pump, water block, and a thick radiator. It has gotten good reviews. It is expensive though and runs about $279. Probably worth every penny of it.
Good for you. Still, I wouldn't dare to call it baloney
Mine started becoming noisy and you'll find a lot of similar reports online. Also refilling is a pain in the a** w.r.t. open loops or constructions with fill ports on the highest point of the loop. I never disputed the good cooling capacity - that after all was the main reason for me for buying it in the first place. Still I'd not buy it again. It is good cooling wise yes also the rads are great (I'm still using all Alphacool parts now), but there are issues (e.g. refilling) and it is more expensive than comparable aios (see e.g. Gamers Nexus last roundup).

Has the dc lt pump been revised? Are there batchs of the same model?
