No problem here.
However on the subject of the power cable: I do not know if this is the case for everyone, but I've found that the socket which the power cable plugs into has a lot of wiggle and give. I am worried that the clips holding it in place may break if I'm not very gentle with it.
I feel it would be nicer if the power cable was more securely fastened.
It’s like that for me too, but when I plug in the power cable it feels secure. However I agree it would be better if it didn’t wiggle

Thanks... I wonder if I can find that 11/8 hose locally (in 1 m intervals) in Australia or at least find only one shop I have to order the LT240 and hoses from as shipping costs will quickly add up if I need to buy multiple components from different sources overseas.

I don't mind 2 slot...because I only have a 2 slot GPU but it looks like it'll be much easier to find GPU fittings that fit in the case in the 3 slot config.
You may have already checked , hope this helps.

@Wahaha360 I agree with these two. The connection wiggled a bit to begin with, but I've switched which direction my socket is turned twice now, and would love a more secure mounting solution that is also flexible enough to switch orientation without potentially breaking the clips of the current iteration.

Here you go for the 11/8 hoses.
Tygon R6010

I have looked at the apogee too and with 61.5mm you'll be confined to two slot gpu set-up of the case. Mine's already 2.5. Other than that on paper the pump is better but when compared to the AC lt pump irl they perform similar.
You have to take the fittings into account to as they will sit higher than the heatsink. In my Ghost S1 even using Koolance low profile 90 degree adapters I was just barely able to clear the 66mm limit.

How hard was it to remove and reorient the the plug? I'm having a lot of trouble with it. Any tips?

LT240 with 25mm and 15mm fan with stock fittings and it should fit with the Gigabyte X570 itx board...maybe replace the hoses with some alternate 11/8 hoses (which seems

I bought some of this stuff (which was linked earlier in the thread somewhere). Managed to get to my house the same day I bought it too lol.

Just received my Eisbaer LT 240 today and a lot of the fins appear to have an orange color on one side; could anyone with LT240 confirm if this is normal? Also, do I need shorter mounting screws for 15mm fans on the radiator?

Yeah, mine’s a bit like that. That’s the copper. They don’t take too much care with the paint job. Although I’ve heard painting radiators reduce performance anyway, so I don’t know if it’s necessarily a bad thing.

As @PBJ mentioned, it's the bare copper that you see. Paint on the radiator reduces heat transfer efficiency, but if that was the reason for the poor paint job, why didn't Alphacool just leave the copper bare? I think that would've looked much better.

Also, absolutely use shorter screws! Too long and you will damage the fins or worse the water tubes.

Bare copper would likely oxidize over time and turn green like the Statue of Liberty. Copper oxide doesn't degrade the properties of the underlying copper (like rust does to iron), but it's definitely not "pretty".

Well it appears that at least with the Eisbaer LT 240 Alphacool simply didn't bother with the build quality. To name a few there are paint issues with fittings on the pump block, some colorization/staining on the cold plate, and a slight dent on the radiator. Plus the paint job on the fins of course.

If they kept the fin stack bare copper it would actually look pretty cool imo.
