    go with the feser

    has more copper

    more accesories. nylon pads etc.

    and they warrent against corrosion for 5 years ointop of the 3 year.

    things like the paint thickness dont bug me that much but every little bit helps.

    that and i think they coat the inside of the feser. wich is good imo because it keeps growth at bay and their is no bare metal touching the fluid because brass has a bad habit of leaving like deposits in the stream. and turning colors.

    to each their own but id get the feser.

    ill not totally diss the PA though alot of people use them i here they are cool and quite but from my experience if you bleed the system right and their arent any bubbles in the rad no rad iv worked with has ever made noise. that in mind id still pick the feser.

    Now much of a difference will one of these rads make over my Black Ice Stealth 240mm? Would a new rad be a better option than replacing my Dtek Fusion with a HeatKiller 3.0 block?

    ok... i'll spill some new info here.

    TC is about to release a new line of rads. 140mm rads. they have shown to kill the feser rads hands down.

    i would highly recommend hw labs but you need higher cfm fans for hw labs rads. i LOVE mine.

    Yeah I posted a thread on that at OCN. G1lgamesh is one lucky guy having that 140.3 prototype to play with.

    I've been using TC rads for a couple of years and think they are the best out there.
