"Sparks Sarge...Faarsands of em"  and while we're on the subject of poor choices for box cover art from a marketing perspective, just how old is the Motherboard that Akasa have decided to mate their Venom A20 with???

Well the advertising may be a little iffy, but the product itself is sound as a dollar pound.  Finish quality is good, with no evidence of fin damage or poor coating.

Like the A10, the A20 has a fin density of 21 FPI, with 14 visible water channels between them.  The radiator is of a fairly OEM design, with no fancy side panels of bezels to set it apart.

The tubing joins the cold head at 90 degree rotating elbow joints.  The joints are a bit stiff to move, but once freed up hold their position well.

The tubing terminates straight into the radiator, and is itself flexible and robust.

Holly crap, those fans are bright aren't they.  Actually, I probably ought to remember that I once did a Black and yellow "Skeleton" build, and at that point would have killed for these fans as it would have prevented me having to take others apart to spray the blades yellow.  So at least at some point in my life i've loved black and yellow.

The removable roof panel and radiator bracket of the test case makes fitting 240mm coolers as easy as falling off a log.  Add in the highly flexible tubing of the A20 and fitting becomes no task at all.

Amazing amount of in depth analysis and explanation fellows, as always, thank you for not only presenting detailed and thorough information but explaining the points you make and why certain aspects/elements are more effective.

Great to see Cryorig putting up great figures. Seems like all of their offerings are at least solid, if not phenomenal, especially for the value.Quote
