Yeap, and no one seems to like to use a sufficient amount of rad either. A dual for a CPU and a GPU isn't enough, especially if you're overclocking.

Thermochill is the best flowing rad on the market, and offers great results for low to medium speed fans.

I have no problems with either Thermochill or Feser. It is true that thermochill rads have an extreme amount of Flux from first use. however every rad should be flushed on first use regardless of brand.

I've used both the PA120.3 and the X360. IMO, buy whichever is cheaper

+1 on the flushing process. Every radiator is still going to have flux - regardless. I have nothing against ThermChill either, I just don't want to spend a day cleaning one out if I am unlucky and get a REALLY bad one, and there out there.

Also, there is a little bit of lead in their paints (Hence why they arnt RoHS). No biggie to me - just dont lick the paint...

Edit: Im using a SR1-360, and a Feser 240 for an i7 860, and a 5870, thats sufficient ammounts of rad I hope

Cheaper comes with excessive Lead that poisons you and Canadian environment.

My only real beef with PA is the continued use of G3/8 threads. They go to 15mm spacing, but won't change the threads to the "industry standard"? Idiots... plus the paint is soooo cheap. Look at all the comparisons, most show Thermochill as the top dog.

I'm with Jacques on this one, save your money, buy whichever one is on special.

I work with more lead than thermochill will ever put into their rads though. I'm not too hesitant on the non-ROHS of thermochills.

Like petrol vs diesel

and I never said thermochills are cheaper
