be quiet! Silent Loop 360 Cooler Review

Rating: 8.5.

We previously looked at the be quiet! Silent Loop 240 at launch last year, but now there is a new kid on the block – the Silent Loop 360. It will be particularly interesting to assess the new 360mm unit as we have just finished testing the Alphacool Eisbaer 360 – and Alphacool also manufactures the Silent Loop series, so any similarities will be closely examined.

Given we were pretty happy with the Silent Loop 240 when we reviewed it last year, it will be interesting to see if be quiet! has changed anything with the Silent Loop 360. Read on for a full examination of the installation process, cooling performance and acoustics.
