Default New King of Radiators?

Article (overclock3d.net)

Feser's come out with a new line of radiators called "X-Changer", going so far as to suggest that it could beat the PA series by 5c... that's some pretty serious bragging. The design similarities to the PA series are undeniable, and the paper specs are looking solid, if a little heavy on bling.

Martin's just finished doing pressure drop testing, and it looks like a solid contender in that area at least. And a little searching reveals a product spot on NCIX as well... gotta love that price!

Ouch!!!!!!

Nice to see high end gear, but something's wrong when one component costs just about as much as a full WC build.........

Still taking orders for this product" bet it comes down some as stock becomes avalible. Still $172.99 is to much IMO, but a PA 120.3 costs what $124.

Hell, I think the hundred and twentyish for the PA 120.3 is way to much, let alone nearing a hundred and eighty. -_-

werd. When you can get an MCR320 for $50, the saving of $100+ is worth a few degrees.

LOL!!! This is so not worth the money. My MCR220 keeps my CPU under 45C. I would not believe for a second that this radiator could drop my temps 5C+. Marketing hype and pure crapola. Not worth it.

I have to tell you- one of the few components on my computer that I didn't feel at all bad about paying lots of money for was my radiator- the other was my CPU block. We spend a small fortune on this stuff and there aren't many things that in a few years will still be considered good gear, but a radiator is one of those few. I do think it will be cheaper when it gets in the market, and it is overpriced. However, if these things turn out to be what thing claim (although they probably won't), I wouldn't rule out the possibility of owning one oneday.
