I regret my purchase!
February 20, 2019
This thing was an incredible pain to install - there are a million little cables and adapters that you need to setup and install into it's little control box and the instructions don't adequately explain what goes where (the instructions are just cartoon type pictures, and they literally do not explain what all the cables and buttons are for).
When I finally got it installed I was incredibly disappointed to realize it was way louder then any air cooled system I've ever owned. I mean, it is ridiculously loud, and it's not the fans - it is the pump. Even at idle, when I am just surfing the web, the pump is constantly wheezing and whining and reeving up and down. It seriously sounds like there is a dying animal in my PC; it's a hideous obnoxious sound that just makes you want to put the poor thing out of its misery.
This was a bad first experience with AIO - I wish I had just gotten a normal CPU cooler, or paid a bit more for a quieter pump... I will be returning this.
