Product Showcase


As always we start with the un-boxing -- well, everything is packaged, cushioned, and bundled safely in the box. Let's rip that packaging open.


Once opened up you'll spot the liquid cooling unit consisting of the radiator, fan, tubing, pump/cooling block. Add to that a bit of thermal paste, a refill bottle with coolant, and an RGB controller with accompanying wires. 


You'll spot a back-plate that supports a wide variety of CPU sockets; Intel LGA 2011 / 1366 / 1156 / 1155 / 1150 /1200 and AMD Socket AM3 / AM4 based processors can be used in combination with this cooler. A mounting kit for sTRX4 CPUs will be available separately from June 2021 onwards.

Included are:

  • Liquid CPU Cooler
  • Mounting kit for all modern CPU sockets
  • Two Fans (Silent Wings 3)
  • Fan and radiator mounting screws
  • Thermal compound
  • Quick Start Guide
  • Y-splitter cable
  • RGB controller
  • Bottle with coolant (spare)

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.  If you look to the far right of the radiator you can see a refill cap. Handy, but the kit must come out for you to be able to refill it of course. We do have some work cut out for us as we need to mount the fans and cooling block retention clips.



Above the small RGB controller, you could hook up the system towards your 5v aRGB connector on your motherboard, this little controller however is rather handy and has a lot of effects available.
