Part 1. Unboxing.



When I opened the parts box, oh my, what a ton of accessories for every modern socket config and a ton of wires and controllers. I'll document these in the next video.


Instead of printing up an instruction video, they give you a small card with a QR code that says manual. About to see how that goes 😉

Part 4. AIDA64 Extreme



Yeah it failed AIDA, but to be fair it was hot in my computer room today, over 80F. But on the other hand it's been hotter than that and my air coolers passed that test at the same settings.


The fans and pump were set to performance mode. I'll test again tomorrow at full speed and we'll see if it can pass AIDA64 for 10 minutes. I know 10 minutes is brutal for an aluminum rad AIO but we need to know for science.


Edit, update:


Ok so the next morning I turned on my supplemental air conditioning to get the room cooled down a bit. I also went into the BIOS and cranked all the fan headers up to 100%. AIDA passed. I let it go for 15 minutes. Temperature spiked to 73C but settled at 67C. I think it would be even cooler if I had used the thermal grease instead of this graphite pad. There is a PRO version that is an updated model with improved water block and a more dense radiator, and that one probably cools a bit better. That version was reviewed here at EXTREMEHW.




The good: 


- Some nice looking high performance fans included

- Very easy mounting mechanism


The bad:


- Cooling price/performance compared to much cheaper air coolers


The ugly:


- That rat's nest of cables for you to deal with
