Here is why I would not use an Apogee GTX : XtremeSystems Forums - View Single Post - Help a WC noob, why has my fluid turned yellowish/orange.

Also, I didnt get the desired results from my Feser Dye, so I just got some Feser UV tubing, and needless to say, the effect under UV light is Dramatic. From now on, coloured tubing all the way. Also, less to worry about in your fluid, just distilled water and a few drops of Biocide, and you are good to go.

I'm not sure that's the best example. The guy was running a Striker II, and Asus seems to have switched over to aluminum for their NB Fusion blocks. But there have definitely been a few issues with the GTX block. That, and the cost just doesn't make it a serious consideration these days. Too many other good options for a similar price.

I won't say anything about those subjective comments regarding water-cooling components, but a liquid section (water replacement) is missing.

Nice suggestions in your list, i would not agree with all your criticism, but that natural

Also i see you went into much detail with pricing and such, from experience, those are a pain to update as well as your future products section. It will take alot of time to edit and update. The best thing to do is keep the explanations brief and simple.

Just my 2 cents

I also plan to update or make a new list when i get back to Canada here on HWC.

I think all Feser rads should be moved to fully available status in Canada.

Here is a great piece of tested info for fans and their performance to noise ratios! This should be stickied somewhere.
