EDIT: on post #3 some cool pics!

EK Water Blocks, premium PC liquid cooling gear manufacturer from Slovenia, announced few days ago a new AIO cooler available with a radiator of 240 or 360mm. EK-Predator is pre-filled and pre-assembled CPU liquid cooling unit with EK-Vardar high static pressure PWM fans included in the package. Too bad there aren't review already but looking from the pictures looks massive and pretty thick. Since is everything "glued" with the radiator, I don't think it will fit easly in all cases. The dimensions are 295 x 133 x 68 mm for the 240mm version and 415 x 133 x 68 mm for the 360mm version, so for example the 240mm its long like a 280mm normal AIO.

According to the official site there are few interesting highlights:
Quote:

Hovercore is a new, revolutionary design of radiator dampeners that prevents transfer of pump vibrations further down the unit and into the chassis, thus resulting in vibration free and silent operation.

Supremacy MX CPU water block, top performer in Enthusiast segment, is specifically designed for Intel CPUs and offers great hydraulic and thermal performance. Carefully machined copper base is made from purest copper available and is further polished to absolute mirror finish. This alone greatly improves the cooling performance of the block.

CoolStream PE radiator – 240mm or 360mm, has a full Copper core being superior to aluminum alternatives in terms of heat dissipation. In conjunction with EK-Vardar fans the result is increased performance across an entire fan operational range, thus delivering results both at low and high airflow operation.

Vardar fans – two on Predator 240 and three on Predator 360 – are high static pressure fans developed in-house specifically for liquid cooling systems. With low noise profile and PWM technology built in, you can always control the RPM and keep the fans silent while maintaining excellent cooling performance.

DDC pump is a powerful 6W liquid cooling pump providing 2-3x higher flow rate compared to other AIOs on the market. It’s also PWM controlled, allowing for automatic pump speed regulation depending on your CPU temperature. Full performance on demand or whisper quiet operation in idle mode!

Integrated Fan splitter hub reduces cable clutter and keeps the unit aesthetically clean. Predator pump and fans plug into the unit itself with only one PWM cable going into CPU Fan socket, while a single SATA molex cable powers the complete unit.

Pre-orders are open on following link but will be available only during the end of September or during October. Prices are 199 euro for 240mm and 239 euro for 360mm.

I think is quite interesting AIO solution, what you think guys? Since dimensions are important specially the thickness of the radiator, imho will be also very good in terms of perfomances.

This thing looks great, and there are proper components, like a decent pump, a decent radiator and decend fans! Imo this is the first "truely" expandable AiO!

Sample is arrived on Marc's table and he did some nice pictures on a ASUS Rampage V Extreme with Corsair DDR4 and ASUS GTX 980 Ti Gaming Strix!

The build quality is impressive, already from the box and packaging you can see that is not a "normal" AIO. The radiator is quite thick, with pump and few fan header on bottom. This trick remove all cables, Predator pump and fans are plugged on the product itself while a single SATA molex cable powers the complete unit.

Soon test and review!
