Despite the rather bumpy start with problems with the pump in the first generation, be quiet! not discouraged to once again establish its own AiO water cooling. So now they are launching a new, hopefully improved successor. And even though the longevity cannot be tested in a review, we will of course take a closer look at the new complete water cooling system in the following article.
Packaging and scope of delivery
The outer box is in the familiar design of be quiet! so completely black, grey stripe with “Premium” lettering on the side and orange accents. Add to that the classic large product image on the front and feature descriptions on the back. We’ve been over this.
And inside it’s business as usual, a cardboard tray protects the cooler during transport. In addition, pump block, fan
and also accessories are bagged again individually. The radiator is additionally enclosed by a cover made of thin cardboard.
But the accessories contain a little surprise, because besides the usual mounting material and RGB controller there is a 100ml bottle of coolant included. Three small cable ties and a PWM Y-splitter together with a very small tube of thermal paste complete the whole.
Assembly and installation
For the AM4 socket, the existing backplate is used again, in which two brackets are attached from the front of the motherboard with four spacers and screws each. Two spring-loaded screws are firmly attached to the pump block and screwed into the brackets.
The installation is easiest when the board is lying on its side, otherwise the whole thing is a bit fiddly. The somewhat stiff hoses are with 500mm long enough for the vast majority of cases.
Below is an overview of the technical details, everything else then as usual on the manufacturer’s site read.
