The best part of the whole unit thick hoses thick rad huge fans thick fan blades decent length great for over clocking any cpu
The week parts are the cable in the sleeve making it difficult if it brake than u can ruin your motherboard another issue hoses can wave very stiff to move also no proper mounting hardware from Arctic with no support
In The end it is worth buying but one thing I will say if u buy a aio make sure to buy 240 or. A 280 for more headroom in extreme over clocking situations

- Nice and thick radiator - PWM controlled - VRM cooler - Looks great overall - Quiet, yet powerful fans
- Mounting (see summary)
So far I'm really enjoying this liquid cooler. I wasn't expecting it to be as quiet as it is while also keeping my CPU at respectable temperatures. It also has a very minimal setup - there aren't a million cables to deal with. All the fan cables are neatly worked into the cooler's design and it's entirely PWM controlled. Out of the box, you won't have to fiddle with a SATA power cable, USB connection or any fan connections/splitter. The only thing that was a mild pain was installing the pump. It's mounted directly onto the stock AM4 backplate, which is fine, except that the backplate all by itself isn't attached to anything (stock mounting brackets are to be removed beforehand) so you will either need another person to hold it in place or tape the backplate so it doesn't fall off. Can't knock a star off for that, however. The cooler itself is what matters and I'm very satisfied with its performance and silence.

- On par with leaders of the market in terms of performance, but significantly less expensive. - Virtually silent. - No RGB.
- No instructions in the box. Only QR code which leads to a vendor website. Instructions on site weren't ideal, but there was a 2 minute video that explained whole mounting process perfectly. - Felt like I desperately needed a 3rd hand to mount it on AM4 socket comfortably: one to hold a plate from the backside of motherboard, another to hold the pump in place, and third to hold a screwdriver. Ended up placing something underneath the plate to keep it in place.
Brought my Ryzen 5 3600x from 60° C idle with stock cooler down to 37-40° C for affordable price.

Excellent performance, better than the H100 it replaced. Quiet operation. No frills; no RGB control bloatware required.
Potential mounting issue in some cases due to thickness of radiator (overall this is a strength as it aids cooling performance); measure the clearance inside your case before purchase.
With this, all your money goes to great cooling, not to RGB. It provides excellent cooling and extremely quiet, a great replacement for an aging cooler like the H100, only with better performance. Recommended.

This thing cools my 9900ks great, better than my water 3.0. Its mounted in the front of my case with a push/pull fan configuration. Normal usage keeps it under 60° C, when stress testing same around 60° C and under 80° C when prime 95 does its torture test around 20 mins. Looks great and pretty easy to install
Only weakness is it didn't come with instructions , just a qr scanner card that sends you a site that has them on it.
I've used a few aios in my day, corsair h100i, thermaltake water 3.0, deepcool and a cooler master nepton and this is probably the best one I've used.
