An SP140 priced the same as the AF140 would sell like hotcakes and demand for 140mm rads would probably go through the roof too. Is there a standard fan spacing on 140mm style rads just now?

Not yet afaik. I think 15 mm is more prevalent and might possibly prevail in the long run, but
some radiators still have 20 mm spacing (Hardware Labs, for example, at least the ones I
have).

While we're on the subject of radiators: I have had it happen on occasion that I've ruined an M3
thread while mounting a radiator to my case, despite being quite careful. If the Alphacool rads
could come with some more solid threads (possibly 6-32 UNC, but I'd much prefer M4) that
would definitely be a small detail I could get behind. The HW Labs SR-1's I have do have M4
threads, and it really does make a difference. I know of course that then all those shiny copper
M3 screws Alphacool has been making (which I love by the way) would have to be
switched to M4 (or whatever new thread size is implemented), but one can dream

How about you make a truly affordable 240mm water cooling kit.

Like the H100, but customisable. Yeah yeah, I know there are other companies who sell these kits but they're stupidly priced. The H100 is about £90, these kits from other companies cost £240 or so. That's bloody ridiculous.

What I'm saying is if you can make water cooling affordable you will bring it to the masses. Right now it's so expensive it just makes me LOL, not consider using it.

Those kits are reasonably priced to be fair, a H100 is a closed loop and is only for your CPU.
With the kits you get a much better rad, which will get you better temps and be much quieter because you don't need your fans spinning as fast to shift the heat. You can also add other rads into the loop as well, which is something you can't do with AIOs.

To watercool properly and it be worth it, those kits are the bare minimum you should be getting anyway. For it really to be worth it you want to go with a 60mm or above though.

Forgive me i havent had a chance to properly read through all the posts (I will come back to them) but i can answer this one quickly

Fully upgrade able - full copper rad. or for the full "custom" experience:

http://www.aquatuning.co.uk/product_...-XT---kit.html

both of these will spank closed loop coolers

Not so much an Aquatuning problem because i can't buy from them(they're in UK i'm in US) but if somehow they can get more companies to make product kits that are competitively priced to XSPC's full kits. I see their kits for 100$ less than others(granite not as good) but its the least expensive option compared to others. So if anyone wants to go real WC then they don't need to spend as much over a h100i..

But what more companies can do is get some more AMD 7xxx blocks. I find them very limited compared to Nvidia.
