Looks great. This is my kind of design, that chunky milled look. It's minimal, no flim flam embellishments or tackyness.
I want one, if only the gpu had been a little bit better "Sad face".

I like the look of this water block! I think It looks sleek and industrial at the same time. There's something about it that just looks right!

I freakin love this system! Was blown away by it when TTL reviewed it, the idea that it would be a simple heat plate swap when you upgrade is just awesome.

***. This Alphacool range looks like absolute CRAP imo. I understand the functional aspects of it, and respect those, but this is a really ugly system in my eyes. EK and Bitspower gear looks infinitely better, but taste is of course subjective.

EDIT: this forum auto-censors + 1 now?!?! WTF??!

I agree, but each to their own I suppose. I really detest this "Industrial Vanes" design that Alphacool are using. To me its ugly as hell. I also dislike any brand logo garishly branded on watercooling items like what Alphacool do. "Alphacool GPX-A Fury X... At least Bitspower and EK engrave theirs in the clear perspex so its isn't blatently in your face.

Maybe it's just me, but when I'm looking at someone's custom loop, I don't really want to see the same logo plastered everywhere. Small discreet finishing touches are what I like.

It freaking rocks! Love the buy the block then just change plates to a low cost when changing card approach.

Makes me even more exited for turning 30 in 2 weeks, so I can let myself have "a midlife crises" and invest in a completely new system and then tell the wife "Better this then the 69' Chevy Nova for sale next door" xD.

I'm with ya! I find EK to be bad for that, with those stupid silver EK badges on everything they make. I hate "logo smearing" too!
