Very nice. Love the fact that it uses "real" fittings to add to the aesthetics.

Shame it says warranty void on the fittings though. Fans don't excite me much either. Other than that though yeah man, bang on !

Ta for the review.

Is it really £115 for the 360mm radiator? That is great value.

It is. Add res and GPU block and you've got a capable yet cheap loop

Might just buy the S36. I'm a FD fanboy and these are beautiful AIOs... Ooooh the temptation is real

edit: Not available yet in the US

Thanks for the review! Was musing about a possible EK Predator 360 until this review gave me another great option. I like the FD design better too, too bad the ice crystal in the pump doesn't light up white. And I'll replace the fans. Lid back in the plans until the new socket is here and undoubtedly more AIOs. That was a good watch!

That real fittings are on the radiator only. Too bad they are fixed on the pump/block unit. Nice to see 360mm radiator. And i like the price. Another way to treat your OCD and go with one brand in your rig. I love Fractal products. I hope they have some nice new stuff coming soon.

Jay also reviewed it and didn't mention it. I don't trust Gamer's Nexus. Watched ASUS 1080Ti STRIX video just now, and they were clearly paid by EVGA a large sum of money to mention EVGA 1080Ti FTW3 every time they mention STRIX. And i mean every time. It gets hilarious when you realize it. Also they had EVGA custom backplate from some firm next to ROG plate on their desk during the whole video. Also he didn't even know about AUTO/PWM turning thingy, tested with AUTO on, put those values in charts, like it doesn't matter, it is garbage anyway. And he is kinda reviewing every product in same conditions. And trough the whole video he had "this is garbage cooler" attitude, when in the reality it is the same one Asetek unit as the rest. Take them with a bag of salt.

Edit: Jay also commended Fractal for putting shorter cables on fans so you can tidy them better.
Edit: And somehow from all those pretty much the same units "EVGA CLC280 is the cooler that gives Fractal the real trouble" (quote from the video)
