Shooting down fallacies
I'd like to see some actual specs/tests on the Arctic, purely out of curiosity. It isn't doing anything magic with the rad or coldplate, but it's making the Aseteks look like toys in tests. That leaves the pump, which we all know is Asetek's biggest weakness (not that any part of them isn't a weakness, mind you). Cooler Master used essentially identical rads and coldplates to the Asetek on their in-house Neptons and got better performance with higher flow pump (maybe you should try to find a leftover or lightly used Nepton?). You also need to keep in mind that speed in different pumps means little in terms of flow, so dismissing it due to it's top rpm may not be prudent.From the pics and blue prints, it sounds like an inpeller simular to Asetek or the other brands. The pump has only 2000rpm as well.
