Taking the cover off the FHE, you can see a bit of the inner workings. The actual FHE is at the bottom underneath of the CFF1 pump that runs off a 3-pin fan connection and appears to use a two wire thermal control for the pump speed.

The 120mm fan that CoolIT mounts to their high efficiency radiator is built to coincide specifically with the radiator. The fan, set up in the pull configuration, is also powered with a 3-pin fan connector and can be speed controlled with the BIOS or even put on a controller to appeal to your own personal sound versus performance levels.

From the side, you can see this has to be an efficient radiator. It's thinner than the 120mm fan that is mounted to it. This means two things; less space taken up inside when you mount the system in your case, but also hopefully efficient enough to still provide good temperatures.

Connectivity to the radiator is handled with these two swiveling barbs. Again CoolIT provides a bit of flexibility to make any install happen without issue or binding of the lines. The third port, to the right, I have to guess is how the system is filled.

Taking a better look at the radiator, that 1800 RPM fan has its work cut out for it. The radiator is a very high FPI design that usually requires a loud high CFM fan to cool efficiently. The tests will soon reveal both if it is loud, or inefficient.
