Thanks to EVGA, we’ll be taking a quick look at their CLC 280 AIO CPU cooler. CLC stands for Closed Loop Cooler, it’s an all-in-one CPU cooler designed for a range of CPU sockets including Intel’s LGA2066/2011/2011-v3/1150/1151/1155/1156/1366, as well as AMD’s AM2/AM3/AM4/FM1/FM2/TR4.
The CPU waterblock features a 100% Copper base, and comes a built-in pump that’s extremely quiet with a noise level of only 20dB(A). It also features a RGB LED logo that’s fully controllable. The large radiator is made from Aluminum and measures 312mm x 139mm x 27mm (LxWxH), which is suitable for all 140mm fans. The unit comes with 2 x 140mm super quiet Teflon Nano Bearing fans.
Firstly, I would like to thank EVGA for providing the sample; without their support this review would not be possible!

I’m expecting some good temperatures from this cooler, especially when I run full load on my overclock processor at 5.1GHz!
