Considering it's a self contained unit, couldn't you just drop it into place on your test bed and compare it against your previous #s without needing to worry about completely ripping apart your current setup?

That'd give us a pretty good idea of how it stacks up against a full WC install.

I agree. I'd like to see how it stacks up against your normal setup used.

If possible could you compare it against a single 120mm rad setup rather than a dual as well, or just take off one of the fans.

Thanks

OK. My sample is coming once Swiftech gets them back in stock (2 weeks or so). I may actually send it to one of our other reviewers for testing, depending on what seems appropriate. Obviously no one would be upgrading their custom water cooling to this kit, but maybe someone would upgrade high end air to this setup, so I might send it to someone who's never tried water cooling.

Unless you guys would like to see it on the standard test bed. Just let me know.

Well whatever you like. It'd be nice if it was semi-comparable to the other reviews/tests, but no big deal. That's why I was wondering if you could get a single 120mm rad and your usual pump to use with say the FuZion just as a comparison.
