    I've been waiting for months for this AIO to come out. And the result was worth the wait, as it was better than my expectations. The pump is, literally, silent. Like nothing. No noise. At all. Never. I changed the fans to take some Silent Wings, which do an amazing job, being performant and silent at the same time. I put them in pull, from the top, to keep a positive air pressure in the case.

    Thanks to the be quiet! Silent Loop 280 my CPU stays at 30°C idle and 70°C during max heat test in prime 95. Fans and pump speed are set manually to turn max speed at 70°C. It's quiet AF while gaming. The pump runs at 60% speed all the time - dead silent.

    Keeps my overclocked 8700k cool, the back-plate is a bit fiddly to get it on, but I managed it after a couple of trys.
