I can see it working well and more free flowing than a standard radiator by far ,but I have concerns about longevity of these cooling types along with noise ,ALSO possibilities of leakage?? ANY INSIGHT TO THIS ??
and true pricey but is it worth it?

According to several reviews this unit performs almost as well as the Swiftech h220, and because of the vented radiator it also cools the VRMS on your motherboard. Corsair h80i I bought was just terrible, cooled worse than the antec 620 that I was using. Moving to aircooling on my next build, I can't stand the fishtank noise that the pumps on these things create.

The only review I've seen rates it higher than a NH-U14s single fan, and it runs quieter too. Kinda expensive though, around 100 dollars US.

I don't know why, but round radiators scream to me: avoid.

Yes having a radial radiator makes no sense.

still cant go lower than ambient temps

What is your point? If you go sub ambient then you have to worry about all kinds of stupid shit like condensation. Give it a rest dingus.

I agree with LatiosXT, I would be concerned about wear and component life. Not a good thing to have your liquid cooling pump fail after a year or two.

Wouldn't this increase the wear on the components?

Actually the addition of certain particles can actually aide in lubrication of cooling components. Ever added BARs Leak or Alumaseal to the cooling system of your car? They are solids, but actualy contain particles that aide in water pump shaft lubrication.

Graphite is another solid that comes to mind that aids as a lubricant.

Closed loop liquid cooling, brought to you by the Cell Corporation!

buzzwords aside, i wonder how it actually performs. I'm guessing it's going to cost more than the Hydros or Seidons but not perform as well. Fan looks cheap

It just doesn't look like a quality product to me.
