    yes same pillow it was resting on and everything;)

    The fittings are just a small part of the list.
    There is really so much going on here its a little insane they can do it at this cost.
    Offsetting the tubes in the rad so screws will never puncture them.
    the pump speeds and noise levels never surpass the noise of the fans.
    The clamps used allow users to screw till you run out of threads for a perfect fit with no questions or issues....really it goes on and on, but I have to save something for later;)

    I didn't really get why this was advertised. That's standard practice for AIO coolers. Trust me I've screwed all the way through my old H70.

    Not really advertised, just emphasized.. This is because we say elsewhere that the radiator core is the same as the classic MCR220 which has been around for many years. We say this to emphasize the well known performance of the device. But on the other hand, we've also released products in the past that squarely called on novice users, and we had a lot of issues with incorrect installs. In the re-design phase of this radiator, we retained the same performance features, but tried to correct all the legacy details from the past. We have a very vast existing customer base, and we are talking to them as well as talking to new users :)

    Right.. More than specs in the vacumm, we tried to actually demonstrate the pump capabilities at CES.

    It is comparable in the sense that we used the 35X as a model (without copying of course, since there are patents on the product): same form factor (size), similar impeller style (9 curved fins), different motor and bearing. We improved on the noise level by filling it up with epoxy (no it doesn't overheat since it's only running at 3k max, and has a very efficient motor/bearing). In terms of overall output, it's obviously less powerfull than the 35X, but not because we couldn't make it so, but rather because we wanted it so: we sought to reduce operating noise for this kit, and blend the pump noise with the fans noise, and we dropped the pump speed from its original 4500 rpm (4,7mH2O) down to 3k rpm. When we release the pump as a standalone unit, then it will be fully comparable to the 35X..

    So if you compare it to the APD2 with integrated 35X, it will certainly not flow as much at max rpm (3k vs 4.5k), but you can absolutely compare their performance at equal 3K rpm.

    Now, at CES we demonstrated that you do not really NEED a 35X to run a full custom loop. In fact, most people run their 35X at lower than max... On the other hand, if you do want a product with extreme capabilities, then you get 35X or 35X2, and pay a substantial price premium.

    Look, I've seen people here and there recommend the XSPC kit ($145 @ Frozen) against the H220. The pump they use is an aquarium type pump with high flow at zero restriction, but relatively low pressure characteristics (1.8 mH20). In contrast, the pump in the H220 is a high pressure device (3 mH20). The difference? Substantially Higher flow when higher restriction is present (additional devices in the loop)..

    The installation manual is in 9 languages, and we fully intend to sell in every one of these countries (and more if possible): English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Japanase, and Chinese.

    why do you doubt? we demonstrated it at CES...

    Nothing revolution.. same components as we have made for years: MCR220 radiator, Apogee Drive II, just less costly pump.. As to Corsair's reaction, I cannot presume as to what they will do.

    Thanks for taking the time to clear that up. Best wishes in all your endeavors.
