ID-Cooling Frostflow 240L CPU Cooler
The head unit has not changed from the other model. We are offered a cylindrical head unit that provides a top plate sporting the ID-Cooling logo in chrome in the middle. Around the edge of the cap, there are windows that allow the LED Comet-Tail effect to happen.
To get coolant in and out of the head unit, the tubing is connected to plastic ninety-degree swivel fittings. These allow a bit of flexibility to twist the tubing to a more relaxed state. Near the other side of the head unit, still along the top, we see the 3-pin lead emanating from under the cap as well.
The copper cold plate is screwed into the head unit evenly on all sides, and once it is in place, they cover it with a clear sticker to fight oxidation mostly, but also to help protect the finish on said cold plate.
For the second time now, though, our cold plate shows definite signs of mishandling. Most of the scratches seen on the machined surface are not that bad, but there is a definite gouge at the top left corner. Someone needs to pay better attention to this.
This time as we stretch out the tape measure, we find that the pump power lead is 9.5 inches rather than the 10 found on the 120L, and we also see the tubing is roughly a quarter of an inch shorter this time too. Neither are deal killers, they are still long enough, but some consistency would be nice.
At last count, we got to 22FPI for this radiator. This is a high fin count and to get air through a tight mass such as this, static pressure is the key to making this all work well.
We found no stickers around this cooler to help identify the actual maker of these units, but from this angle we can see that they also offer the standard 27mm thick radiator, and there is no dressing it up on the sides, just three rivets to look at there.
We went ahead and mounted up the fans to the radiator so you could have a clear view of the style and appeal that just a simple red ring on these can do towards dressing things up a bit.
