ID-Cooling Chromaflow 240 CPU Cooler
The head unit has the ID-Cooling logo in the center of the top cover and is surrounded by a ring which is also LED backlit. The universal Intel brackets come installed on the head unit, and we can also see a QC sticker applied to the side which indicates it has been tested and passed.
On the right side of the head unit is where the ninety-degree fittings are found that take the coolant to the radiator and them back to the head unit. Out of the top side of it, we see a pair of leads coming from it, which are for power and RGB LED control.
Under the head unit, we find a machined copper plate which transfers heat from the CPU to the coolant inside of the loop. The base is slightly convex, more so near the edges, but with pressure from mounting is better than a level surface. As for the hardware attached to it, there are four Phillips screws used, which is what is also used to mount the AMD hardware.
At the top is a 4-pin RGB connection which is intended to plug into a motherboard, but can also be connected with optional goodies, which can be controlled with an included remote. The SATA connection is to power the pump inside of the head unit. Think about that for a moment. This means that there is no way to check RPMs, and this means no way to verify speed, or to check to see if the pump is in motion or dead in the water.
Measuring from the base of the angled fittings on the head unit to the connections on the radiator, we find thirteen inches of tubing. Some coolers offer less, but the trend as of late from the bigger names in AIO cooling is to provide fifteen inches to make optional radiator locations and radiator orientations easier to accomplish.
As for the radiator, there are holes on both sides so that 120mm fans can be installed as push or pull fans depending on how you want to install this AIO. If you want to, another pair of fans can be purchased, so that you can have push-pull, and even more lighting too. The fin density is high but is the same as many other AIOs on the market.
