...RGB illumination, straightforward installation and the ability to top-up liquid without breaking a sweat.
Aerocool is a brand we're likely to be hearing more of in 2018. The Taiwanese firm is gearing up for a push in the UK market with a range of gamer-orientated products launched under the Project 7 umbrella.
The eclectic range includes everything from chassis to bean bags, and the first Project 7 liquid cooler is the £100 P7-L240. Taking an aesthetic approach that's a little different to the norm, P7-L240's best attributes include a unique pump header design, three-zone RGB illumination, straightforward installation and the ability to top-up liquid without breaking a sweat.
Cooling performance is in line with our expectations of a 240mm closed-loop solution, however there is room for improvement in other areas. The bundled fans make the cooler noisier than its immediate rivals, there's one too many cables to contend with, and if you're interested in the lights, be aware that you'll need at least one spare RGB header on your motherboard or, failing that, an optional hub.
Bottom line: the Project 7 P7-L240 is another addition to the competitive liquid-cooling market, but Aerocool may need to drop the asking price if it is to stand out from the competition.
