EVGA CL28 AIO Watercooling Review

Introduction and Technical Specification

EVGA CL28 Review


We've looked at more than a few AIOs over the years, but to date have never looked at one from EVGA.  Granted, it's a bit of a departure from their core business, but then perhaps they recognise that consumers like to match up and coordinate their kit.  So to that end, why not have an AIO that compliments your Motherboard and maybe your GPU to boot.  Enter then the CL28.  As the name suggests, it's a 280mm rad cooler, based on twin 140mm fans.  Aside from looking the dogs danglies, the whole shooting match can also be controlled via downloadable software via a USB motherboard connection.  The big question is though, does it cut the mustard when it comes to the torture tests?  Before we find out, let's take a look at those all important technical specifications shall we.

*edit* we have just found out there is a promotion running and the EVGA CL28 currently costs just £89 at Scan**

Since the fans somewhat blow the air sidewards (JTC did testing with with liquid ice https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5p2rkH4G-hs ). How did it perform with your standart vardar fans?Quote

Does the video answer the question? IMHO no it does not. JTC does like the sound of his own voice. Cool video though. Quote
