    Nice, in depth review, Sandy. The thing that really impresses me about the Glacer is it's cooling abilities with the fans running ~1200rpm, pump around 2400rpm (which is where they sit on my board in tandem). At that speed, the Glacer remains very quiet, yet still outperforms any 240mm AiO even at their top speeds (which is the polar opposite of "very quiet"). So, you do actually get into the advantages of liquid cooling - superior performance with low noise.

    Deton - I actually did the head to head with the Glacer and Raystorm 750 EX240 kit on the CPU only, and the performance difference was surprisingly almost non-existant. Mind you, the AX would improve the kit results and adding a GPU would certainly favor the XSPC kit. Personally, I would take the kit every time for myself. But for those with custom loop concerns, the Glacer (and H220) certainly offer a huge upgrade in every way over the H100i/Antec 1250/Water 2.0 Extreme/etc./etc./etc.

    So ~don't~ send me the Cooler Master Glacer 240L unless you really must.
    Nice line up minus the H60. lol No worries Neil! Ill make sure not to send this one to you buddy. Its too close to real water cooling for you to have it.

    Sure that sounds like a great trade! Lets do it!

    Thank you sir. I have to agree with you. When you self manage the speeds of the pump and fans it is quiet while still cooling well.

    I think a lot of the performance differences between the Glacer and other AIOs is the related to the pump. Most are simply under powered. Take the H100i for instance. Since Corsair doesnt list the official flow rates for the h100i we have to use data gathered from online. Most test shows the H100i with a flow rate of .416L a minute or (25L/HR). In comparison a cheap crappy $10 fish tank pump is rated at .222L a minute or 13.249L/H. The Glacer 240L has a rating of 2.5L a minute or 165L/hr. Its not even a far fight to compare the 240L to any AIO. However the X2O 750 Dual Bay res/Pump is rated at 750L/hr. So again we find ourselves in a position to not have a fair comparison.

    The best I could do was an MCP350 rated at 350L/Hr. Which was the lowest rated pump I had on hand for testing. Combined with the fans from the Glacer, Rad manufactured by the same maker as the 240L and same size. Same size tubing as the Glacer. The only difference was the res. I bought the smallest res I could at 100ml. So all and all it was pretty damn close to the Glacer. Just a lot more expensive. lol

    Oh, there is no doubt that the Glacer having a better pump has a lot to do with it far outperforming the AiO coolers....and the better rad.....and the better block.....and the better fans..... Every component is superior, so you can definitely expect those kinds of results.

    I agree with you about closely matching the components, but the Raystorm 750 EX240 kit is the closest in terms of price. So, to say that it will cost you $300 to replicate it (which it will) is somewhat misleading when you can do something with a higher flow pump for $149, or even an EK kit for $239. Spending that $300 wisely can get you a GPU block and second (120~140mm) rad included with the kit.

    And I agree with you about the Blademasters, they are surprisingly good fans.

    I really wanna use this with a similar config to what Sandy used in the review in my girlfriend's main rig: FX 8320 and a reference Galaxy GTX 670. I don't even have to overclock her card because Boost kicks up clock speeds on it's own to 1105 MHz... I can only imagine how much better it'd get under water.
