I received my case and my new radiators. I did not expect to purchase the case; it was on sale at a good price. I had to change my radiator from XSPC RX to Alphacool XT45. Honestly, I am impressed with fin quality for such a cheap ass radiator. The paint job sucks, but that can easily be fixed.

Small update...

I received my AC Kryos HF today. The box was in decent shape, and block is now in an airtight bag. AC does not use lacquer on the Kryos, so my previous block had a bit of oxidation on the cold plate.
