Installation

With the three Silent Wings 2 fans attached to the rad things are starting to take shape.  It may not have the bling or software control of some of its competitors, but we think the Silent Loop 360 does look like a tasty bit of kit.

be quiet have put a bit of thought into the oversize nature of the 360 rad, and followed through with cables and tubing that is longer than is normally seen on an AIO

The instructions weren't great, but thankfully as we've a fair bit of experience here at OC3D we were able to muddle through.  Now, the observant among you will have noticed that we've put the rad in the front as opposed to the roof, and the reason for that is simple, it won't fit in the roof.  Having tested this sort of thing before we're confident that the changed position will make little to no difference to the results.

 The Pump assembly looks nice and simple, with just the chromed be quiet logo to break up the large slab of brushed Aluminium effect on the upper surface.

The even more observant among you will notice that we've mounted the rad in "Pull" configuration"  Again, the reason for this is simple.  The long screws that be quiet provide aren't quite long enough to secure the fans to the rad after they've passed through the front bulkhead mounting holes.  Again, this configuration will have little effect on the temps we record.

I'm not sure what BeQuiet are aiming for with these coolers. They're very quiet, well-made, and attractive (minus the tubing), but they perform too far behind the competition, even ones almost as quiet or as quiet. I'm really interested in BeQuiet products and will read the full review if I have time, but it seems that performance is still not there.Quote

I've read the review and what you've said is pretty much what's happened. I'd hazard a guess that my H100i that is £50 less, and only has a 240mm radiator would perform the same if not better. It is a shame because BeQuiet make some great air coolers. I wish their Liquid Coolers would be at the same standardQuote

Yea, judging from experience, the H100i definitely will perform better.Quote
