We are testing the cooler in a case, in order to recreate a real-life scenario. Here, you can see how many wires you will need to manage. Those are purely RGB-related ones, which need to be connected, otherwise, what’s the purpose of buying this cooler?



The RGB cable goes to the motherboard’s RGB header or the provided RGB controller. The fan needs power from a 4-pin PWM connector.


The pressure of the radiator (which is only 48-49 mm thin) is good, the base is rather even and there shouldn’t be any issues with contact with the IHS of the processor.


Here’s a small teaser of what the AS500 looks like in the system. More photos on the next page.
