Innovation and cooling performance are the main arguments for this radiator! That's it? No! There is much more to this radiator when looking closer:
The choice of material is the basis for any great radiator. Copper fins, channels and chambers are make the G-Changer V2 to the most powerful Phobya radiator ever. The frame construction was coated with a robust layer of high-grade lacquer. The fins are coated with a thinner layer to improve the appearance without compromising cooling performance. The whole radiator is surrounded by a shiny metal frame which gives a great overall appearance to the radiator. The Phobya logo was machined into the sides of the radiator to show that this radiator is a serious heat exchanger.
Based on the right choice of material and design the Phobya engineers have implemented many technologies to achieve outstanding cooling performance. The first idea was that improved flow rates result in improved cooling performance. Therefore the G-Changer series feature parallel double cooling channels to greatly reduce flow resistance of the radiator. The fin spacing and size was chosen to work efficiently even with medium-speed and slow fans to achieve the best noise- to performance ratio. The unique design of the fins of this 60mm thick heat exchanger additionally allows great performance increases when using High-powered fans which makes it extremely versatile and perfect for any application!
What good is great performance if the radiator is a pain to install? To make installation quick, easy and safe the engineers at Phobya came up with another innovative concept: The radiator is equipped with connection threads both on the front and bottom which greatly increases the possible mounting locations of this radiator. The two included black thread sealing plugs safely seal the two unused threads shut.
The M3 threads in the sides of the radiator are another new feature which promises greatly eased installation: These threads allow quick and rigid installation of the radiator in 5,25" drive bays. For easy deaeration of the radiator a bleeding screw was integrated at the highest point of the back of the radiator. When filling the system simply open the screw slightly until all air is bled from the radiator. Then screw the cross-slotted screw in again and you are set to go with a completely bled radiator!
Version 2 Full Copper
An additional new feature of the now completely black radiator are now the caps in brass black nickel. The sides on this version are mounted with a more complicated prodecdure which means that they are a bit more expensive but also look just great! More than that the V2 has not only copper fins, but also copper channels and copper chambers only the threads are made of brass. For those who what copper-only watersystems this radiator is the first choice.

The reddish brown "stains" on the fins is no rust. Please note that this is a copper radiator and the note: "The whole radiator was coated with a robust black lacquer. The fins are coated with a thinner layer to improve the appearance without compromising cooling performance.". The lacquer coat is made from the same material, hence the reddish-brown "stains".
Attention: The radiator can be damaged, if the screws are screwed too deep. Please pay attention to the right length of the screws. The screws do not have the same size in every delivery.
Note: To avoid storage or manufacture-related residues in the circulation, Please rinse the radiator completely before assembling.

Solide Verarbeitet und gut beschichtet wenn auch ein wenig mehr Material an den Vorkammern nicht schlecht wäre. Die mitgelieferten Blindstopfen sind aus Kupfer und von guter Qualität. Das verwendete Gewinde zur Befestigung des Radiators ist metrisch, was mir sehr zuvorkam da die mitgelieferten Schrauben für meine Zwecke zu lang waren. Die Abstände zwischen den Leitblechen empfinde ich als sehr groß, was bei passiven Verwendungsabsichten kein Nachteil sein muss.
