    It's going to be good, no question about that. It just looks like it will be a phenomenal PITA to fill and bleed like the H220 was unless you add an external res..

    Now THAT'S what I'm talking about. A pump on the end of rad so you can still set up a push/pull config. That's the AIO I would want right there. Awesome! Might put up a piece on that tomorrow.

    Woah, check this out too.

    That disconnect though. Correction, it's the 360 I want.

    Why would Asetek even possibly... Oh, right!

    It suddenly occurs to me more was going on in my head than what I wrote. I like the new Swiftech units alot but it always bugged me that the pump cover part of the radiator. I know, it's really not a big deal but for me it's and OCD thing that does make it a big deal. Again...

    I like it and like the design as well, if I had to nitpick change the quick disconnect to
    a black one or nice chrome plated one.

    You look at it component by component, and one would assume the performance will be slightly, but distinctly better than the Swiftech overall. My biggest question is going to be if it will be able to match the Swiftech at lower noise levels. The rad is much higher fpi, but that may be offset by the Vardars. Looking forward to finding out.

    The one other thing.....mounting that CPU block on Intel 115x is not what anyone would call "user friendly". 2011 is no issue, though.

    Thanks, Vinny, It looks good.
    If I didn't have everything already covered and a pair on the shelf, I would consider this.

    I like it.Simple way to save space by mounting the pump on the rad. Smart.

    You guys know that Swiftech did almost exactly this years ago right?

    Of course, well....I can only speak for myself....

    And the Predator suffers from the some of the same issues that the Swiftech had - cost of the DDC pump, compatibility issues due to the added length, and the filling/bleeding being a nightmare. Most don't realize that a huge part of what makes the H220-X/H240-X a huge upgrade is that pump placement, while awkward, solves compatibility and many fill/bleed issues, and the in house manufactured pump brings the cost to more palatable levels for the mainstream user.

    However.....the Predator has a much better rad and block.

    I'm not saying that's it's innovative (because it isn't), it is just a very interesting piece for the enthusiast.

    The added length shouldn't be too much of an issue since the whole unit is only 15mm longer than our standard PE radiators (PE240 : 280mm vs Predator240 : 295mm, PE360 : 400mm vs Predator360 : 415mm). The width is 133mm

    So it should fit in a good amount of cases.

    For the bleeding problems, we have a top port like the swiftech unit had for filling/bleeding but it will only being used if you decide to flush the already filled AIO.

    Since the unit is already pre-filled, no bleeding issues will happen out of the box.
