    More value for your money spent on their products.
    German marketing at its best. And it really gives you something, not just word play.
    Glad to hear that, Artic Liquid could be something I would consider an AIO right now.
    Just for not using the same Asetek design and having the brains and guts to make their own.

    Not that I am likely to bother with a 6 year old warranty, but in a world full of disposable crap, I really love this confidence in their engineering!

    Overbuilt is sexy!

    I'm glad they clarified it at last.
    On the box it says 2 yrs warranty, on their website it said 5 years.

    The 420mm is a damn good cooler!

    They dont mention the warranty on the page for all the coolers but it is mentioned in the tech specs for individual coolers
    This is mine

    Click "General data" at the bottom, it says

    i reckon even the 280 would be enough to cool a 8-12 core ryzen chip.
    probably wouldn't do 16 cores below the 360 though.

    is there any reason to pay a 20 eur premium on 280 vs 240 ?

    far more radiator area to disperse heat.

    =quieter fans.
    i may think about 280

    sadly,I can't
    I already have 140mm on the top which I'm keeping for fancy argb looks
    all I have left is 2x120mm space
    well,I think lf2 240mm is good enough anyway.it's 38mm so more radiator on this 240 than 29/30mm 280's

    yeah but shouldn't they be push not pull if mounted on the top ?

    hmmmm,I do have space on the controller for more corsair sp140pro's,and they would make decent radiator fans too,wouldn't they ?

    240mm push vs 280 pull ? is 280 still gonna be better ?

    Pull is actually fine for radiators, theres not much more than a % difference in orientation, i have my 280 installed on the inside of a phantom 630 and the fans are installed on the top under the plastic cover pulling air through the rad, i get 60c on my 4.4ghz 1680v2 and the fan hasn't broken 1000rpm. (that said, its cooler months this side of the world, so summer will be the test)

    Just remember to use a washer between the fan and radiator or fan and case (if you mount it like i did), else the fans can push themselves down against the top of the case/rad and clip the metal.

    thanks
    I have a mounting frame in my p600s

    lf2 is thicker than usual,this may affect pull config in a negative way

    Ran into a few issues with the 360 (v.3).
    1. Motherboard standoffs come with no spacer (maybe v.4 has them?), so the brackets that the cooler is mounted on sit loose until the cooler is tightened down.
    2. AM4 offset mounting is not possible on a board like mine, bracket collides with the M.2 bracket.
    3. The radiator is longer than standard 360 radiators, so it can no be mounted in front(side) of Lian Li's OD11, already got an radiator on top for my GPU
    Ended up putting the whole thing back in it's box.

    If the included fans can do that they aren't that good.
    Been using push/pull with a lot of builds and never had a pull fan clip into a radiator.

    This is a possibility with all sleeve and FDB fans mounted vertically in orientation that operate above 1300rpms, the lateral thrust can pull the blade to the edge of the frame and at this point, any amount of wobble (even from case vibration) can be amplified so that the tips of the blades tap the other surface.
