Maingear EPIC 180 Liquid CPU Cooler Review

The Maingear EPIC 180 Liquid CPU Cooler




Just so that you can put it in your mind what I have been and will continue to describe is just how the EPIC 180 gets installed into these Maingear systems. Here is one version in the Shift chassis.




Again they use the same radiator, but in the Quantum Shift there is a dual CPU cooler configuration used. There are also GPU cooling solutions for both single and dual GPU setups, again based on CoolIT designs.




The Maingear EPIC 180 is constructed like many other CoolIT built solutions. This time the head unit is emblazoned with the Maingear logo and making the head unit look tiny, there is the 180mm by 180mm radiator.




The radiator being a single 180mm radiator offers more surface area than what the Corsair H100 offers with its dual radiator offering, so I will expect some pretty good results with this unit. There are mounts on both sides of the radiator for a fan to be added.




On both sides you have extended mounts applied to the radiator to allow for the specific installation in the RV01 chassis. These sides are connected across the back and have a 180mm opening to which the fan gets mounted creating a offset for both the power supply and acting as a spacing shroud to allow the fan the best chance to build CFM and static pressure before it hits the fins.




This angle was to show the 33mm thickness of the actual radiator inside of the steel covering. You can also see that these have CoolIT's sticker on them calling this the ECOII-180.
