ID-Cooling ZOOMFLOW 240 CPU Cooler
Starting with the round head unit, which houses both the pump and the cold plate, is visually appealing right out of the gate. We can make out the company logo in the center of the window that covers the top of the head unit, but it is also surrounded by a chromed ring of plastic to bring up the bling factor. The rest of the cover is made of black plastic which is textured and delivers a flat appearance, which will help it to blend into the system, making the lighting and the ring stand out.
On the right side of the head unit, we find a pair of ninety-degree swivel fittings attached to it, with hexagonal covers at the end of the almost gray-colored sleeve on the tubing. Ae also notice "shields" if you will, covering the view of the fittings from the top, but are not structural or impede the movement of the fittings, but it does clean up the top-view when it is installed.
We did remove the plastic sticker which protects the finish of the cold plate and also keeping it from oxidizing. Once gone, we can make out fine machine marks from the factory, but there is also a convex shape to the copper plate to help it mate properly to a CPU with an IHS. We can also see that from the left side of the head unit, two leads come out of it, without any sleeve applied to them.
Those cables that start from the side of the head unit are both quite long, and as we can now see, one of them is an ARGB 3-pin connection for the lights in the head unit, while the other is a SATA power connection for the pump. If you look towards the twelve-inch mark, you will see that there is an option to use the motherboard to power the pump, if speed control is a desire, or if you want to be able to read the RPM.
As we moved away from the head unit, we followed the tubing down the line, next to the tape, to see that they are sixteen inches in total length. In this image, we also see more of the hexagonal covers, and that the radiator is roughly an inch thick from intake to exhaust.
While the total surface area is quite high with the design of the radiator, the FPI is also quite high to accomplish this. To properly cool such a setup, you need a bunch of airflow as well as static pressure to get air through this system to keep it cool.
