...a welcome addition to a burgeoning market and a solid choice for performance users seeking high-end cooling performance.
be quiet! has belatedly expanded its line of CPU coolers with a trio of liquid solutions that sit alongside an award-winning range of air heatsinks.
Productised as the Silent Loop and initially available in 120mm, 240mm and 280mm flavours, the new entrants are a welcome addition to a burgeoning market and a solid choice for performance users seeking high-end cooling performance.
What sets the Silent Loop apart, in our estimation, is be quiet!'s decision to strip away the excess to focus on the basics. Whereas competing units have been bolstered with LED illumination and superfluous software, the German manufacturer heads in the opposite direction with a sleek design, minimal cable clutter and the quietest pump we've tested in an all-in-one unit.
Still waiting to take your first steps into liquid cooling but reluctant to go through the trials and tribulations of an intricate custom loop? The Silent Loop 240mm is a stand-out choice that's able to out-perform a large air cooler while keeping almost as quiet.
Keeps pump noise down to a minimum
Excellent cooling performance
No lights nor superfluous software
Can't be expanded
