A lot of the low-FPI rads are similar to each other; but if you want the REALLY good ones, you'll want HWLabs, Thermochill, Feser, and XSPC. Between those 4 there's something for everyone, though I may note Thermochill rads seem to have a bit more flux left over in the channels than other brands, resulting in a more tedious cleaning process.

Ah, I see. You'll want the XSPC RX-240, then.
