First out of the box is the CPU water block. The block is made of copper, and the top appears to be cast, with the Larkooler name applied to it prior to the nickel plating. The fittings come pre-installed here, and are very tight. The mounting bracket is steel, and comes ready for any Intel installation.

We flipped the block over to see that the base has a warning sticker applied to protect the finely polished base. We also found four Allen screws, which allow users to swap out the Intel bracket for the AMD bracket we found later in the hardware. The block is sealed, and does not come apart.

The base is round, and is somewhat convex in shape, as the center sits slightly higher than the rest. The diameter is also enough to cover any processor's IHS, and with the nickel plating added to the copper, we are left with a mirror-like reflection on the base.

The pump and reservoir combination offers a pump that can push 480 liters of coolant per hour, but also offers a variable speed dial to allow users to adjust the flow rate as needed. The tinted plastic at the back is the 250mL reservoir, which bleeds very well. The pump and reservoir both have their fittings pre-installed. The pump receives its power via the 3-pin fan connection under the speed dial, and the second 3-pin to the left powers the LED that is set into the side of the reservoir.

The P512 pump from Larkooler runs at 12V maximum, drawing 5 to 14 Watts, and no more than 1.2Amps. The pump's sticker also shows the 5 meters of head pressure, and that there is a typo in the charts, as this shows the maximum RPMs are 5300, not 5700.
