G-Changer 240 V2 and G-Silent 12 Fans

To cool the coolant, and keep the system happy, we are give this 277mm by 124mm, which is 60mm in thickness. Because this kit is from over the pond, keep in mind that the screw holes are M3.

Inside of the box, we find the radiator has plugs in all of its holes. The radiator is wrapped in bubble wrap to help keep the paint job looking fresh, and this will also help to keep those fins straight.

At the far end in the last image, there was this little box of hardware. Inside of it there are three black nickel caps to fit unused ports in the radiator, which is sitting in the background. There are also four bags with four screws each. Eight are for use with 38mm thick fans, while the other set is for 25mm thick versions.

To connect fittings for the tubing to run into and out of the G-Changer, we find the ends of the headers are ported, as are the typical pair of ports on the face that most radiators offer as the only option.

Both sides of the radiator have a steel plate to cover up the internals, and we can see Phobya has applied their name and logo to the sides with a thick metal sticker.

While everything gets treated to a complimentary black paint job, this all copper radiator offers twelve larger tubes running from end to end, to help maximize the flow. We also see they went with a 7FPI fin design between them, allowing for more silent fans to be used with good success.

We also find a fill port at the opposite end of the G-Changer 240 V2. For some installations, this may not be needed, but if the radiator is installed vertically, or at the top, this fill port can come in very handy.

To cool that radiator, we were give a pair of G-Silence 12 fans. These are 120mm by 25mm fans that will spin at a maximum of 1500 RPM; they obviously have transparent red blades, and looking at the back of the box, we find these fans offer 57.20 cubic meters per hour, delivering only 25 dB of noise.

Inside of those boxes we find this pair of clear framed fans, with seven red blades on the hub of each. We can also see that the fan leads are sleeved in a white braid, and they terminate in a three-pin connection. Each fan also comes with case fan screws, but they are of no use in this kit really.
