be quiet! Silent Loop 280

Yep, they enter the AIO liquid cooling market as well! We test and review the be quiet! Silent Loop 280, an All-in-One Liquid cooling kit that is decent in performance with a 280mm rad and two Pure Wings 2 fans. These liquid cooling kits are pre-fitted and based on a single loop and ready to install straight out of the box. Armed with pretty nice looks and an attractive price, be quiet! offers a competitive model in the massive LCS kit arena.

The Silent Loop is an all-in-one liquid cooling solution for desktop PCs and is available in 120mm, 240mm and 280 versions. 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 ship pressure tested, pre-filled, and sealed directly from the factory to provide maintenance-free operation for years. 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. The series is equipped with high-density water micro channel and copper nickel plated mirror finish block to offer an efficient thermal conduct along with Aluminum fin to maximize its cooling performance. Fan replacement is available with the standard built-in mounting holes. 

The product makes use of what is called a reverse-flow pump that should deliver virtually inaudible operation with no vibrating noises. When you sit close enough, you can still hear the pump a tiny little bit though. That block is interesting at it is completely flat in design. Also interesting is that be quiet! applies a refill port. 

Be Quiet! is bundling the AIO kit with PureWings 2 PWM based fans. The coolers will be backed by a 3-year warranty. But let's head onward to the next page and startup the review.
