With everything we have just seen, it is hard to find reasons to try and dissuade you from choosing the Thermaltake Floe Riing 360 AIO cooler to cool your CPU. The performance is the best we have seen from anything we have tested with this processor, and while not chart topping in sound levels, we are more than happy to get this level of performance with what little noise is present. We also like that Thermaltake left nothing on the table.
Using performance mode delivers the best results you can obtain, even while PWM controlled as well, so there is no need to ever run this AIO at full speed all of the time. Then, of course, we move into the choice of fans and the lighting in the head unit. Never before have we seen LED lighting in an AIO on this level, hell we haven't even seen this in custom loops yet. Added into the mix is a fancy hub that can be connected to nearly every PC fan on the block and be controlled from one window in the software suite. All signs truly point to the fact that the Floe Riing 360 is the best of the best when it comes to sealed loop systems.
While we love the hub, the fact that we can connect up to sixteen of these things together, we do think the software could use some love. Nearly fully functional, the lack of easy controls of the head unit RGB LEDs, and the odd ways in which the fan modes are to be used can be tricky, yet we feel this is something easily addressed by programmers. Another thing we noticed is that the head unit does produce more noise than anything we have tested in AIO country in quite a while.
We can deal with what is presented, but other companies can deliver head units which make virtually no noise at all. The last thing, and it could have been a typo in the chart, but we were told the fans would spin at 1400 RPM tops. Our fans were spinning at 1600 RPM and are well outside of the margin of error for fan speed. We hope this is a simple mistake, and that when you get a unit, your fans spin just as fast.
The Thermaltake Floe Riing 360 TT Premium RGB AIO Cooler is a top tier product, which attempts to deliver everything possible, and does a damn fine job with what is offered. Considering the upgraded fans, the superior performance, the addition of the hub and software for control, it does alleviate that $199.99 MSRP a tad. While our advice is always to wait for the best deal, this cooler which is priced like a custom loop, offers that level of performance, with much more pizazz, and all in a sealed loop system, where a tenth of the work is involved in setting it up.
If we were on the hunt for a new AIO, our money would be going to Thermaltake and this round of AIOs. There just isn't anything better on the market right now.

The Bottom Line: Thermaltake's Floe Riing 360 AIO takes a deep pocket to obtain, but is worth it! It has color options, software, hub and what is left in connectivity later, but most importantly, chart topping thermal performance, with noise we can all live with.
