Linus [NCIX} has a Swiftech video review. I think it was here at HC somewhere.

Again I think they are off the mark... $20 for the corsair with 3 more years warranty, quieter and better performance and an integrated fan controller.. no comparison for me.
If you can afford to drop $100 on a cooler the extra $20 for the above is well worth it IMO.

The rubber for the rad mounting as a good idea though and would be great to see it in other coolers.

The nice thing as well with the Corsair VS the Antec / CM....is if the Corsair one deep sixes something on your rig, you're covered.

Not too sure if Antec or CM would step up to the plate for that.

Would be nice if all the AIO manus went that route though.

Cooler Master is a teir 1 company so I doubt they wouldnt cover you. Might take some pushing but I dont see leak damage / worst case doomsday scenario coverage to be a problem. NZXT, CM, Corsair, Antec. Honestly dont see it being a prob with any of them. :)

Yeah the only issue I have with that AkG, is Corsair I believe lists that right in there warranty.
You shouldn't have to fight a Tier 1 company to cover it. If its going to be covered make it up front in the warranty. YMMV.

I'm not doubting that they wouldn't but its a process thing.
