Looks like a re branded Asetek unit?

Asetek is a OEM provider for these units so it really wouldn't surprise me.

Does Asetek use the same plate that Enermax makes a fuss about in the marketing materials?

I wouldn't doubt it, Enermax does like to engineer their own stuff but even they have outsourced some of there PSU units, so why not just add a marketing term to something that is already existing.

Sealed AIO is where the market is headed it seems.
Now to get AIO's for my GPU's and I'd be happy. Its a shame the Omni never went mainstream.

Yes seems all the 240 based rads are all in the same price range of each other too .... $119 ish .... Only thing is isnt antec 1 yr, coolit 1 yr, corsair 2 yr ? And these new enermax's are now claiming a 5 yr warrenty on there units .. 5 yrs sounds good :thumb: & a lil unbelieveable. :shok:

Sure why not, 5 years, given the type of tubing and parts available now means they have proven that its MTBF is beyond that scope to be sound.
That being said, I still would prefer Corsair given there warranty coverage of things destroyed by a failing cooler.

Yes what im curious about is what the 5 yr warrenty would entail coverage like corsairs then & would like to know that & see how it reviews as well.

Otherwise I hope this starts also pushing down some of the prices especialy on the dual rad models more. :thumb:
