With the inner carton out of the box you can easily remove the individual components of the cooler.
They include the AIO cooler itself, two 120mm fans, a manual, and a bag containing all the accessories and mounting hardware. One thing that is unique to this AIO that we’ve not seen before is the use of cardboard sleeve to protect the fins of the radiator.
Looking more closely at the included parts you will find a pretty interesting fan blade design dubbed “Dual Automatic” by Tt these blades have a sloped stepped design that is intended to “maximize the cooling performance and tranquility”. A very interesting design, keeping with the current trend of tweaking blade shape for some desired effect. We shall see if Tt’s take on this works.
Next lets take a look inside that bag of goodies that Tt included. We expect to find mostly mounting hardware since Tt claims this cooler is compatible with universally all sockets.
And just as we thought mostly hardware the only exception being a fan splitter for the two included PWM radiator fans.
And now we come to the cooler itself. It is of course an all in one liquid cooling loop. The main claim to fame of this one being that it has a 49mm thick radiator. That is a very respectable thickness even for an off the shelf unit for an extreme rig. The idea of a thicker radiator is that the fins are longer and provide more surface area for the heat to dissipate from more quickly. Overall the construction and paint are very well done and give the impression of a well built product.
On the other end of the 326mm length of tubing you will find the pump attached. It is short and round and meets the standard of being small and unintrusive to your case. On the business end of the pump you will find a copper heat plate with thermal paste already installed. To keep the thermal paste in place Tt covers this end of the pump with a round clear plastic dish.
