Pretty sweet, I especially like the wood box/stand. Very classy looking. Does the rad have any fans or is it fanless?

My only complaint is that it's apparently an aluminium radiator. I personally prefer copper/brass because of galvanic corosion, but you've probably added an inhibitor for that.

Its really hard to find brand new copper radiator, thats why aluminium has been used...

Radiator is ducted in my own technology ^_^ (called crossflow), inside are two 140mm Zephyr fans (600rpm, hi airflow).

Everything is almost inaudiable :)

Very nice, though mixing aluminium and copper isn't the best idea. If it's a prototype, why not use copper heaterboard pipes with aluminium fins and avoid galvanic corrosion? I've seen it around on the net.
