Product Showcase

Let's rip that packaging open. Once opened up, you'll spot the liquid cooling unit consisting of the radiator, fan, tubing, and pump/cooling block. Mostly pre-fitted and ready to use, of course. Everything is carefully packaged and individually wrapped in plastic.



You'll spot a back-plate that supports a wide variety of CPU sockets; Intel LGA 2011 / 1366 / 1156 / 1155 / 1150 /1700 and AMD Socket FM2 / FM1 / AM5 / AM4 / AM3+ / AM3 / AM2+ / AM2 based processors can be used in combination with this cooler. The Ryzen AMD AM4 socket is thus supported, including Ryzen series 1000, 2000, and 3000 but not Ryzen Threadripper. Don't let all the kit scare you, installation remains rather simple.

Included are:

  • Liquid CPU cooler
  • Mounting kit for all modern CPU sockets (no Threadripper (Socket TR4/sTRX4) support)
  • Two fans (depending on kit of course) 
  • Fan and radiator mounting screws
  • Thermal compound (syringe) 
  • Quick start guide
  • Cables

Summed up, once unboxed, you'll spot the cooling unit consisting of the radiator assembly, fans and brackets + back-plate that supports a very wide range of AMD and Intel processors. We do have some work cut out for us as we need to mount the fans and cooling block retention clips.



Also new to see, an aRGB and RPM fan hub has now been included. Here all cabling is connected to after which you can tuck it away in your chassis.
