Thermaltake Floe Riing 360 TT Premium Edition CPU Cooler

Right out of the box, after removing plastic bags from both the head unit and the radiator, this is the bulk of the kit. At first glance, the Floe Riing 360 appears to be like many others, outside of the TT Thermaltake branding on the head unit, but there is more to this AIO than what is gathered on the initial look.

The head unit is black, and the ring, the TT, and the Thermaltake name are all RGB backlit when powered. On this unit, we find the swivel fittings as well as the wires coming out the bottom of the head unit, where most are on the side.

Looking at the bottom of the head unit from this angle, we can see the swivel fittings, the braided sleeve, and the rubber ring that holds the braid in place. Just to the right of the tubes, there is a notch, where the fan power lead and RGB control wire come out.

To power the pump, one must connect the 3-pin fan connector to the motherboard, preferably a fan header with PWM controls. The thicker sleeved wire is used for RGB control and is similar to a USB 2.0 connection, but the missing pin in the bottom row is on the opposite end of the connection.

After removing the plastic cup that protects the base, we get an unimpeded view of the cold plate, as well as the pre-applied thermal paste. We are pleased to see that nothing has gotten under the protective layer of plastic, and the TIM is debris free and ready to be used.

Since we use MX-2 for all of our cooler testing, we cleaned off the TIM to have a look at the surface of the cold plate. It is machined circularly, it is highest in the middle for added pressure when mounting it, and shows no signs of hidden damage where the TIM was applied.

The tubing runs from the head unit to the radiator, and we put the tape measure next to it to check the length. Converting thirteen inches to millimeters, we come up with 330mm, which is a bit longer than advertised. We have seen longer tubes on other AIOs, but this should be sufficient for most case installs.

In the last image, we could see the 27mm of thickness, so we wanted to address overall size and fin density with this one. The radiator is more than 360mm long, in the realm of 390mm, and as to the fins, they are set at a density of 23 FPI.
