Wow this is a really exciting product. I may finally ditch air cooling for my main machine if this H70 can at least match my TRUE120 with dual fans...

Yeah my guess is along the same lines as _dangtx_. My feelings are this won't be better than high end air. I hope to be proved wrong though, because I would definately consider this.

If this is the same as the LCLC 240 it will smoke high end air. The limiting factor in all of the single 120mm liquid coolers is the 120mm radiator. You can only cool the CPU so much when you're pushing 40C liquid around in the loop.

If I did know, I certainly wouldn't be able to speculate about it since it's an embargo product. As for my job, I have a real job too, not just opening boxes haha.

Yeah, Linus isn't going to be dumb and spout out information if he knows it and is under embargo still.

By the way, we need more unboxings with that giant sword please.

The more I look at his avatar now, the more I feel it's directed at me. =[
Edit: Maybe you can defect and tell us all of your secrets.
