    Be quiet! has redesigned its liquid cooling line, meet the Pure Loop 2 FX. Not only does the LCS CPU cooler offer fresh looks with new aRGB LEDs, but it is also more silent with a PWM-based pump. And ...

    Another POS 280 at Scythe Mugen 5 levels, both noise and cooling lol.
    Thanks for revealing it to us chief so we don't waste any money.

    I always like it when guru3D reviews cooling products. Even though this one's not for me :D

    OUCH!

    this is nothing against Scythe or the Mugen the company makes fabulous products and i own some.

    this is about the application.
    not everyone has the room for the Mugen even if they had the desire. it's routine for me to Mod systems for friends and families. i've lost count the number of times i've modded an aio w/Scythe fans.

    the hottest trends in PC building the last five years are W/C, SFF, and ITX.
    many case makers now have slim cases w/o the clearance for the Mugen. - right there is where you need cooling (and noise) levels to be comparable. in fact there are many cases that will take a 280mm but not a big air cooler.

    and this aio doesn't need the fans to be replaced

    Ok fair enough you're right about the format itself.
    Still performs poor for a 280 though.

    This one actually has a decent backplate.
    Scythe FUMA2 Rev.B review had ''solid piece backplate'', no cutout in the middle, worst thing I have ever seen.

    try EK Predator (might have something newer) or Alphacool Eisbaer.

    Eisbaer is the King of the Hill being the only copper rad, but the EK looks the nicest

    btw...

    MSI has some very interesting aio's using a rad mounted pump @ 280mm
    the only difference between the three is the aRGB. the first two have rotating cap heads to orient with the angle of the build, the third has a way fancy (and way expensive) display
