FINALLY a 140/280 rad! Something new in the AIO market! Funny someone was mentioning 140 AIOs the other day and when they'd come to market.

Might be interested if it works as good as King Noctua. Hopefully it is quiet. I am tired of having to buy low profile ram only.

Let us know your thoughts. I'm seriously contemplating getting rid of my custom loop for the cleanliness and easy factor of a AIO, especially now that air coolers on GPU's are so bloody good at cooling.

Will do. Need to do some reading on finding an optimal Fan for the setup (Sorry NZXT, but I pick my own fans for these things).
But, if I get one before any real review goes live I will do a member review.
