Durable sleeved cable is 1cm thick and the cooler part that is attached to the CPU is copper plated. The radiator is 2.7cm thick and you can mount up to 4 fans, 2 on both side. Installation is rather straightforward and having big thumb screw is great for tool less assembly. Weight 1071 grams.. The radiator pump is connected to the CPU fan header while the radiator fans are connected to to the Smart Fan Controller. The fan has 256 RGB color which you can dial in to the specific color or let it cycle the 256 color in a loop or pick between four solid colors red, blue, green and white for your system. I set mine to Aqua Blue.

Controller also controls the fans speed indicated in RED led for 400 to 1000 rpm (low noise) and BLUE LED for 800 to 1500 rpm. Lower rpm is great to reduce noise in your system.

Max. Pressure:0.57 ~ 2.01 mm-H2O

Performance time, this is my first time owning a liquid cooling system as all this while I have been using the Intel Stock Cooler on my Gaming PC. There is a 10 degrees celsius difference on idle, 13 degrees celsius for CPU load only and 15 degrees celsius difference when CPU and GPU’s ambient temperature kicks in. What amaze me is the difference between CPU load alone and CPU with GPU combine is still under 50 degrees celcius while Stock cooler keep on climbing, again having hot CPU is not good as it may introduced thermal thorlling and eats up more power.
