be quiet! has launched its Silent Loop 2 series of AIO CPU coolers. They feature up to three cooling fans and radiator ranging from 120 mm to 360 mm. Silent Loop 2 coolers also have a contact area large enough to cover processors with protruding heat spreader designs. The radiators have a refill port to allow easy refills and include a bottle of cooling fluid. They are compatible with Intel 1200 / 2066 / 1150 / 1151 / 1155 / 2011(-3) Square ILM and AMD AM4 / AM3(+) processors. A separate mounting kit for sTRX4 CPUs will be available in June.

The pumps feature a three-chamber design with insulating material that reduces vibrations and noise from the pump housing. Pump speed can be adjusted by changing the voltage from 9 to 12 volts. The pump has a 6-pole motor with three phases. A nickel-plated copper cold plate uses over 120 micro fins to provide an increased surface area for heat absorption.

The PWM cooling fans are the latest Silent Wings 3 model, which resemble those seen in the Dark Rock Pro 4 that was reviewed by our own David Schroth. Depending on the radiator size, they are either 120 mm or 140 mm. The fans also use 6-pole motors and feature a fluid dynamic bearing to provide high static pressure.

Data Sheet

All models feature ARGB, which can be adjusted via the included controller or the 5 V ARGB motherboard header. The logo is illuminated by white LEDs and can be turned off. Prices start at $99.90 for the 120 mm model and go up to $159.90 for the 360 mm version. They will launch in Europe on April 6, but there are no plans yet for a U.S. release.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
