I'm not a big fan of Tweak Town reviews either. Their results always seemed "tweaked" compared to other reviewers.

It's not rebranded. It has nothing to do with Corsair. It's a CoolIT ECO II pump/head and a 180mm radiator exclusive to us.

44dB at idle, where PCs spend most of their time. That's 5dB louder than the Phanteks and 11dB! louder than the Noctua NH-D14:

61dB at load...fail.

I don't know how close they stuck the SPL meter to get 61dB, but if an FM181 is rated at 36dB @ max RPM, that doesn't make sense, now does it?

Also, have you SEEN how big that Phantek is? And it required three fans to beat it...by one degree C! It also weighs over a kilogram, which if you'll read the review, is something we simply won't install on our systems. The flex you get during shipping, and the risk of it shearing off, are too high.

This is hands down the best AIO liquid cooler on the market, and it matches or exceeds the best air coolers out there, all with the piece of mind of safer shipping. Not to mention you don't have to disassemble it to add or remove RAM.
