Maybe true but in my experience each company has top quality stuff and also their cheap stuff.

For instance the AX series XSPC rads are quite nice imho just as nice or better quality as the alpha cool ones I've got in other builds.

But on the other hand id say Radiators are a pretty basic thing to begin with.

Waterblock qualities are a different story but in the end most cool within a degree or two of each other lol.

Long story short most water gear performs similar I'd say aside from pump's that is..

But some look much better then others do while doing it such as EKWB looks vs XSPC looks and how if you then bring something like AquaComputer - Kryographics series GPU blocks in they make both EKWB and XSPC block's look cheap and flat.

Radiators are something that are "basically" all the same thing, but at the same time, a company can do a wide variety of things to make them better/ worse. I used to build radiators, from scratch. A few years back, I even made my own water cooling ones.

The diameter of inner tubes, the shape, the size, the amount of fins + style of fins. Quality of copper/ brass etc.
I never did get around to testing mine out, but I still have them kicking around.

so then you would know exactly what i mean when i say the quality of radiators now a days are judged more on aesthetics vs then actual output of heat .

ive had like 5 dif brands of rads over the last few years for differnt builds and all of them perform cooling wise similar but look different so imho its more of a aesthetic thing.

It would be some difference if rads would not be made at the same place and later presented as if they were made by ... It is almost the same as with Laing pumps, 3 factories making them all for everybody including our awesome DarkSide radiators.

I was speaking strictly from volume of RMA cases we had to deal with. XSPC had the highest, therefore they are at the last place in our books.

Hey All. Just trying to get some help for Daz.
He's got a bunch of older hardware up for sale in the store.
We realize the asking prices are high, but think of this as a friendly donation to keep new builds rolling out!
Plus you get to take home some actual Daz Memorabilia,
Particularly Daz has opened up his personal stock of Gentle Typhoons

DAZLAB USED ITEMS

Cheers. Bungz.
