True, Gamers Nexus has reviewed the 280mm and 360mm, and its pretty much top of the chart on almost every test performance.While your opinion may be true, we have no data to prove it is.
Radiator being thicker does not mean it is better. All depends on quality of radiator, not it's thickness. Testing of component cooling radiators has proven this many times.
No frills is nice but again it doesn't mean it's better quality or better performing .. or how long it will last.
P12 seem to be good fans, but it will be another couple years before we beging to know how well they will last.
iirc Steve did attribute some of the performance to the thicker radiator and it could heat soak better.
I'm planning on replacing the fans so it's less relevant to me Arctic has a decent reputation in the fan category though.
