    Hi guys, latest rad from TFC here and I am after some opinions on this Monsta! :p






    What are everyone's first impression of this rad, very tempted to get some in but unsure due to the size. 476 mm x 148.6 mm x 104.2 mm.

    Interesting that it has side vents...

    I don't know whether it would work, but could this be mounted with fans on both sides pushing inward, and then exhaust out through the side, in order to create a higher pressure over the fins?

    Or perhaps with a blanking cover over the back, to allow airflow in an L shape?

    Or is it just where you've taken one of the 'Monsta' sides off to show off the rad? :p

    Not sure you could do that as the air wouldn't be able to travel through the flat fins would it?

    i will stick to my tiny tfc rad

    but im sure that they would sell well

    are there any performance reviews of this compared to standard 3X120/4X120 rads?

    does it come with a disclaimer

    What would the price likely be?

    Do they do a 120.4 version?:p

    Side panel has been removed - notice screw head layout on panel and fixing holes match.
    Should help with cleaning, but it's just away of reducing manifacturing costs.

    Whats the surface area - might be viable for semi-passive cooling loops

    Edit: from reading around same surface area as 4x and uses 120 or 140mm fans

    They should make a quad rad that takes 140mm fans and is as deep as that, all copper construction would be bonus:D

    Does look quite nice, would probably have to be external in a few systems i would imagine.

    Aren't you going to need scaffolding to mount that in your PC? Nice to see Eric Hall branching out into water cooling products though.
