be quiet! is set to expand its lineup of all-in-one water cooling systems by launching the Pure Loop 2. As a successor to the Pure Loop, this version integrates a host of upgrades like a PWM-regulated pump and ARGB LEDs embedded within the cooling block. The Pure Loop 2 series includes the recently developed Pure Wings 3 PWM high-speed fans from be quiet!, designed for silent operation and optimum static pressure. The Pure Loop 2 is available in multiple radiator dimensions: 120mm, 240mm, 280mm, and 360mm.
Technical Specifications and Design
Pump and Motor Configuration: The Pure Loop 2 units come fitted with up to three Pure Wings 3 PWM high-speed fans, maintaining a notably low acoustic footprint with just 36.8dB(A) at peak speed. Employing a closed loop motor setup, these fans perpetually regulate their speed, ensuring a uniform RPM irrespective of the air resistance from the radiator. The pump showcases a doubly decoupled design for vibration mitigation. It's positioned on the tubes, thus separating it from both the CPU cooling block and the radiator. The pump's inherent vibration is further curbed using internal rubber buffers. The pump offers PWM modulation for a balanced performance-noise output, while its nickel-coated coldplate offers reliable cooling apt for mainstream CPUs, compatible with liquid metal thermal pastes.
Design and Refilling Mechanism: The Pure Loop 2 adopts a monochromatic theme with its fans, tubing, and radiator, accentuated by a cooling block mimicking brushed aluminum. The cooling block is subtly illuminated with ARGB lights. be quiet! introduces a refill port on the radiator for simple coolant top-up, ensuring the unit's performance is retained over prolonged use. Every package provides a 100ml coolant bottle, adequate for a minimum of six top-ups. The tubing, encased in a flexible sleeve, is designed for smooth installation, including in tighter cases. The Pure Loop 2's efficient attachment system is compatible with contemporary CPUs from both Intel and AMD.
