Mine was dirt cheap, top quality and huge. Perfect OEM type fit besides the thickness (spal fans work fine). No problems with it yet.

I've been running an all-aluminum CSF for about three years. Very happy with it. Required just a tiny bit of trimming of one of the strips on the side to fit, but it seems pretty durable and was inexpensive compared to Koyo.
