    I heard this was basically CoolerMaster's licensed/rebranded Swiftech H220. It sure looks like it.

    -Edit-

    Yeah durr, I just read the article :V

    I have spoken to a couple Cooler Master customer support staff members about expanding my Glacier 240L. On both occasions they were quick to point out opening it or expanding the loop voids the warranty.

    I have been running the Glacer 240L for over a month now with my OC'd 4770k. Love it thus far. I must note that the stock fans can get loud if using an aggressive fan profile. Mine is very quiet for normal use like gaming (my 780 Lightning is far louder), but with video encoding loading up all the cores to 100%, the noise is very noticeable once temps near 60C (again, my profile has fans at 75% at 60C). Pump is pretty quiet as well with just a light hum. Note that the Glacer does not come with a PWM splitter, which is sad since the H220 did.

    Use any block you want. This isn't a proprietary system...

    Interesting. That was NOT the case with the Swiftech
