Packaging and Specifications

Let’s get the packaging formality out of the way. I think it’s useful to see how a product is shipped, but there isn’t a lot to say outside of if the company did a good job or not. In this case, the box looks nice, but the wear is due to the product being shipped a bit more than usual. Outside of that, you can’t ask for much more than this.

The inside is nicely partitioned to give the critical components some space from the edges. It’s a good way to ensure things arrive as safely as possible.

I already talked about how great the Captain looked, but haven’t gotten far into how well it would perform. Considering RPMs on the pump and fans are pretty standard, this unit should be on par with most.

    Personally I’d like to see more AIO manufacturers use standard G14 fittings giving us options to upgrade the loop by adding more rads and perhaps vga blocks.
