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.

    Between this one and Alphacool Eisbaer 360 with one is more silent? With pump operates more silent? What about fans, although in worst case scenario those can be swapped.

    Cooling will be used with i9-7900X (non OCed, at least not now).

    I do search for nearly silent operation and because NSG-S0 is not yet available, not to mention will be expensive, so AIO it is.
