No real issues with installation of the radiator or mounting the waterblock. However, the braided tubing maybe a little stiff … but I did manage to bend it so that it fitted within the chassis. The only other concern, as with most AIO coolers that support ARGB lighting … is the cables. There’s so much of it … you’ll just have to find a way to hide them using your divine cable management skills 😛
For our tests, we used a test rig which includes the ASRock B550 Taichi Motherboard, along with an AMD Ryzen 7 – 3700X at default clock speed of 3.6GHz (turbo boost 4.4GHz), as well as 16GB of XPG Spectrix D60G (DDR4-3600) ram in dual channel mode.
All tests were conducted at turbo clock speeds at a resolution of 1920×1080. High or Ultra settings enabled.

Idle temperatures was around 41 degrees Celsius, which falls perfectly in line with our expectations, so no surprises here.
Full Load Temps
During our stress test at full load, CPU temperatures reached a high of 89 degrees Celsius, which isn’t too bad. Well at least it’s under 90 degrees.
