I went with the SR-1s cause I'm fed up with Thermochill. Don't get me wrong, Thermo's are still the best on the market, but their lack of "standard" rads (only recently supported 15mm spacing, and they still have g3/8 threads), cheap ass paint and dirty rads (takes forever to clean out new ones) kept me away. Feser is pretty much out of the rad business, Swiftech just sucks and the MORA just doesn't fit my application.

Yuppers I understand, the amount of gunk in a thermochill rad is enough to drive you crazy, and all the other points you mentioned are valid to be upset, imo where it's been almost 2 years now that 1/2" is becoming more of a standard and 1 1/4" screws are commonly used, Thermochill just recently only adapted one change.

How come you say Feser is almost out of rad business, I thought it's been just about an year they started making rads, and they are pretty competitive. Swiftech is cheap cheap cheap, anything above a dual rad, you're better off spending that money on a quality rad..

Their current generation of radiators (Xchanger) has hit EOL. They're cooking up something new for this summer though.

I'll believe it when I see it... besides, that ghey voice and dance music is enough to avoid that company all together.

Thanks Steers.. ermm.. umm.. I should be reading.. Cheers!!.

HW Labs have always made great quality rads, so I'd never think twice to go with them, but only think twice on which series to go for. Hey Liu Kang, how much did you end up paying for them, including any shipping off course.. :)
