I have 2 of these lineup:

Aquacomputer AMS 840 full copper (cooling a i7-6800k and GTX 1070 SC) push/pull config
Aquacomputer AMS 480 full copper (cooling only a AMD FX-9590 220watt cpu Currently while browsing watch YT videos etc 28c) push only

What can i say they cool excellent on my gaming rig cpu idles around 21c to 29c depending on the season and gpu always adds 5c in comparison with the cpu. In heavy gaming sessions it doesnt sweat at all see link post 288:

https://www.overclock.net/forum/61-w...iators-29.html

All fans running @ 600 rpm silence is my goal plus these rads are designed for low rpm fans.
Another benefit is the no flux design of the rads so no more crap in your blocks.
But they are more restrictive then your average rad a single D5 can handle the rad and 2 blocks with ease and maybe with 2 pairs of QD4's if needed.

I would suggest not getting that combo you linked rather get a separate AMS rad and separate D5 pump and res combo makes it easier to fill and bleed. If you want to cool a cpu and gpu get the 840 and some QD4's for external setup.
For coolant i highly advise using "Koolance 702 clear" the best coolant i have used keeps your (nickel) blocks clean and without oxidation for more then 2.5 years straight.
And yes good WC setup costs money...

Aquatuning USA sells them as well btw.
Or directly order them from Aquacomputer shop i have no clue how much you have to pay for custom fees tho...

They probably cool just fine for everyday use but they don't really perform as well as most "traditional" radiators.

This is a great read: https://www.xtremerigs.net/2015/02/1...or-round-2015/

Just keep in mind that the charts show large differences between top and bottom performers but are only a few degrees if I recall correctly, lol

I would not buy. Even Aqua Computer makes good blocks but their radiators a bit weak even the desing is good to maintain water cleaness. Not so much corrosion can happen if happen it's easier to clean than tradition radiators. Depends your configuration what works best. High fpi is for push/pull and high rpm fans and low fpi for low speeds and push. If you are gonna use more than one radiator you can combine different radiators to the best cooling.

Aqua Computer radiators avarage efficiency was only 76-80%. Koolance and Hardware Labs doing way better even with 30mm thickness.

well yes, its a 420, it by definition should have more cooling capacity than a = quality 360...

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

well also i was thinking is while the x3 cools good looking at that skinny rad even if they were both 360 the Aquacomputer should cool better i would think the X3 rad is pretty skinny

marten's liquid lab breaks a lot of that down. Thicc boiis require more fanspeed/pressure for = and/or better efficiency, if I remember correctly.
