I wanted to buy some clear cryofuel this time to test it against the alphacool ckc but I could fine any readily available or any that wasn't lavishly overpriced. So now I have a gallon of ckc coming instead because it was the only thing I could find lol. Is it that much better than the other premixes?
I don’t think temp wise. But when I’ve used the ckc a few time, it became pretty quick a bit yellow.

anyone has experienced this Alphacool SLI terminal? From the pictures it looks like if you add 2 90 degree fittings you get something similar to the EK-FC Terminal Rotary 90°, cheaper as well but probably limited to just Alphacool GPU block
i don't have an ek block to test it on but here are more pictures if you or anyone else needs more let me know.

ek's are also integrated with the fittings and the measurements have them smaller. i don't have calipers but even if it is 5mm it might matter.

thanks so much man! yeah it looks to be 5mm taller than the EK one (per spec) so it can matter a lot indeed 🤜🤛

Short update on my end: Ordered on 10th (shipping date was set to 31st July). Received tracking no. on 27th. Packaged arrived in Germany yesterday. Now will need to fill out paperworks and send them to the central customs office, I will need to pay at least additional 41€ customs (mb some additional fees on top). Once they have processed it, I will have the case most likely end of next week.

Btw the first and last time I ordered something from china it was delivered by YunExpress. The package first arrived in netherlands and then was shipped to germany. From there it looks like they relabled the parcel so it looked like it came from within europe. Not sure if that was the reason or only luck but in the end I didn't have to pay customs, the packaged was directly delivered to me.

There are two certainties in life, death and taxes. We all have to pay for worldwide trade in one way or another.

It is! You see? Because is EXACLTY wide like the max dimension of the T1 (133mm) It makes pressure on the side panel, letting them bulge a bit in the center.





Ahh that's not too bad, it's about the same bulging I have due to my GPU fittings! I'm impressed this 30mm radiator closes with the slim fans without obvious bowing! Is it kaze flex slim without rubber pads?

Yes! But there is one reason why the GTS can fit without bulge, I guess!
Being larger than 130mm, I was able to completely remove the brackets and let it stay between the side struts.
Being also chamfered on the sides, I think it slides a bit (0.5/1mm) inside the struts!
I can try with the Noctuas as well, but yes, those are the Kazeflex Slim without rubber pads.
The temps are 2/3C better than the TX240. Both the coolant and the CPU, and also the GPU stay 2C lower.

Whats the best (Smallest) Fan hub that people would recommend? I'll be running 2x 12x15 and 1x 12x25, Unfortunately for me I'm running the msi b450i and it's only got one fan header.

That's awesome @fabio !! I've missed some of this thread recently, and it looks like you've changed your pump and top. Which combo are you using now? (Many apologies if it's been asked already)

How dare you not follow this thread religiously 3 times a day. If this were game of thrones we would make you do the walk of shame
