ID-Cooling DASHFLOW 360 CPU Cooler Review (Page 2)

At first glance, the packaging looks that same as many other AIOs, but the ID-Cooling, image of the cooler, and the DASHFLOW 360 name tell you this is something different. RGB sync is mentioned in the top-right corner along with some of the prominent features, but at the bottom, left are stickers for the ASUS, MSI, and GIGABYTE compatibility with RGB support.


Much like with the ZOOMFLOW, the side of the DASHFLOW box also shows the RGB lighting off, followed by a look at the new head unit, a glance at the premium sleeved tubing, and in our opinion, with a 360mm radiator, you can rightfully use a word like "massive."


Both of the smaller ends of the box are similar. On this end, we see the company name with the name of the cooler in the middle. Where things differ, is where we now see the supported RGB motherboard software, on the other end is a UPC code and another sticker with the model and serial numbers on it.


The second of the longer sides of the box is where ID-Cooling presents a few renderings. The one at the left is just a visual rendering to show the design and layout. The second image gives us the width of the radiator and height of the head unit. This leaves the last of them to deliver the length of the radiator, and the breadth and depth of the head unit. Sadly, there is not a measurement for the thickness of the radiator.


The bottom of the box, or the back, depending on your perspective, is used for detailed information. On the left is a specifications chart with most of the vital stats listed. On the right, we see a chart on compatibility, while below it is company information, should you need to contact them for any reason.


Rather than the basic recycled cardboard interior packaging, ID-Cooling stepped up the game to ensure the slightly heavier product gets to your door safely. Using dense, open-celled foam, the radiator is kept away from the tubing and head unit. Between them is where the white hardware box is shipped, sitting under the DF-12025-RGB TRIO box. There is a thinner layer of foam used to cover all of this, and on top of that are the instructions, but all together, ID-Cooling has done their best to ensure your product arrives in as terrific shape as our has.

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
