The ID-Cooling FrostFlow 240L is a pretty conventional AIO aimed at the mass-market.
It has a pretty standard design, with a 27-mm thick radiator and sleeved tubes. The pump does sport integrated LEDs, though, which adds a bit of pizzazz once the system is powered on.
Installation is also pain free, though it is not as quick as the classic Asetek method. Still, you’ll be up and running in minutes.
Thermal performance is also very decent for the price. Admittedly it is not quite chart-topping, but for £80, this cooler does pretty well.
So far so good? Unfortunately, the biggest issue is fan noise. Simply put, the fans are just too loud when the CPU is stressed, and it is very off-putting. When the fans hit their max speed of 2,000 rpm, you (and everyone else !) will know about it.
That does mean the ID-Cooling FrostFlow 240L is less appealing than it should be. With quieter fans, it would be a decent unit for the money thanks to its solid performance and good-looks. As it is, we still recommend the Arctic Liquid Freezer 240 to anyone looking for an AIO – it is just £78, offers top performance and is still nice and quiet.
You can buy the FrostFlow 240L for £79.99 inc. VAT from Overclockers UK HERE.

KitGuru says: While the FrostFlow 240L is marred by its horribly-loud fans, ID-Cooling has otherwise produced a decent AIO liquid cooler at an affordable price.
