The Calore C360D radiator sports a copper core plus triple-row flat tube design with 14 fins per inch, which is fairly typical for a full-height radiator. You get plenty of ports too with top- and side-mounted G1/4in ports plus a single port on the bottom for draining. 

It's a bit of a beast in terms of size, though, at 65mm thick and 403mm long - quite a bit larger than other 360mm radiators such as XSPC's RX360, which sits at 56mm high and 398mm long.

Raijintek has sensibly used a Laing D5-based pump for its Antila D5 pump and reservoir combo, and at £105 it's the cheapest option out there if you want a D5 vario with adjustable speed control as well as PWM control plus a tube reservoir. 

Thermaltake's Pacific PR22 D5 looks very similar but costs £170 thanks to a more elaborate mounting kit and RGB lighting. However, this Raijintek one does have a couple of downsides, the first being that there's only one port on the base, meaning you're forced to route your tubing in through the top of the reservoir.

That's the same on the Thermaltake offering, admittedly, but XSPC's D5 Photon has two ports located on the pump section, for example. The second criticism is that you just get four screws and nuts to mount the reservoir with nothing by way of anti-vibration, although you can obviously use third-party pump mounts such as the Phanteks one we've shown two images above.
