be quiet Pure loop 280mm LCS review

Be quiet! has renewed its liquid cooling series, all hail the Pure Loop. Not only does the LCS CPU cooler have new aesthetics, be quiet! did something unique, they place the pump in between tubing, we can only assume that in an effort to divert an Asetek patent (Asetek holds the patent for using a pump inside a cooling block and requires royalties from anybody that uses that idea). These liquid cooling kits are pre-fitted on a single loop and ready to install straight out of the box after some minor assembling. Armed with new looks, sleeved tubing, and a reasonable price, be quiet! offers a competitive mainstream model in the massive LCS kit arena. The newly updated coolers are free of ARGB accents. There's just one (way too bright) LED zone at the cooling block and that's it. The pure Loop 280mm is a series of durable CPU liquid coolers designed for mid-sized gaming builds. Each cooler brings the performance, features, and design needed to be an essential part of your gaming system. 

The 280 kit that we test is a self-contained (AIO) CPU cooling unit based on liquid cooling. It does not require much setup installation. With a pump and radiator shipped pressure tested, it is pre-filled and sealed directly from the factory to provide maintenance-free operation for years. it however does come with a  refill cap and be quiet! also is including a bottle of coolant (anti-freeze) as the unit is made out of aluminum.  Pure Loop will be available with four different radiator sizes: 120mm, 240mm, 280mm, and 360mm.

This ease of use extends to its support of the latest Intel and AMD sockets; including the latest Intel LGA 1155/1156/2011 and AMD FM2 sockets as well as AM4 for Ryzen but not Threadripper processors. The series is equipped with a high-density water microchannel and copper finish block to offer efficient thermal conduction along with a proper radiator to maximize cooling performance. The coolers will be backed by a 3-year warranty.
