Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good CPU compatibility
Most CPUs are compatible with this device including Intel's and AMD's more popular chip sockets such as 1150 and AM3+.
Pro Large low noise fans
The fans used are of the Silencio series, which are for creating high air pressure with low fan noise. This allows a lot of airflow to cool the liquid while also staying close to silent.
Pro Sleek look
There is an included LED light with the Cooler Master logo on the front of the heatsink, which adds to the look of the inside of ones case, for those that go for that kind of thing.
Con Troublesome mounting
The way the fans are designed, mounting can be difficult as the screw that fastens to the case needs to go through the pump body and then to a threaded hole on the mounting bracket. This can be difficult to line up correctly, especially in a tight space where visibility and room is at a premium.
Con Always a potential for leaks
While this is a closed loop cooling system meant to be leak free, having something that pumps water inside of a very expensive electronic device can be a risk to be considered. While air cooling will never allow one to reach the low temps this water cooled system can, if it does leak there can be major damage.
