    be quiet! gave their Silent Loop All-in-One Liquid cooling kit series an overhaul, and with success, we can say. The Silent loop 2 performs well and remains very silent. An updated pump design, a notc...

    For so long I had forgot to mention, what goes on in peoples bedrooms for 30dBA? :D

    "Bedroom at night 30 dBA Quiet"

    I wouldn't class 30dBA as quiet. A broadcast studio definitely is way louder than a bedroom.

    Did BQ specifically asked not to be compared to ~$90 Arctic Cooling 280 AIO?

    Companies don't get to ask anything in regards to Guru3D reviews, thanks so much for the insinuation though. But to answer the question, that one was tested by Chris, and we cannot mix result sets based on a different platform.

    Why isn't the Arctic Liquid Freezer 2 not on the list anywhere?

    The 360 and 420mm models are literally some of the best liquid coolers on the market right now in terms of cooling, noise output, and build quality.

    GamersNexus even did a breakdown of the device and found it was surprisingly well build, and on top of all that the 360mm models is really affordable in comparison to others it's size.

    I am sorry, but it made sense to me as the only reason why someone (doesn't matter which website) would exclude the already existing solutions that perform and outperform most of the devices on the market. Like Arctic P series fans outperform BQ PureWings in regards to price to performance and noise. So by putting 2xP14 on their 280 AIO model, it's not only cooling better, it's also less noisy and cheaper.

    Same answer as I previously gave. The Arctics have not been tested on my end but rather by Chris, and we cannot mix the result sets.

    What's this? Silent Loop 2 will not be available in the US? Do I need to schedule a trip to Hamburg in order to buy one? Well for that matter Germany is on a full lockdown right now and casual travelers from the USA are forbidden entree. WTF!

    Ahh ok, didn't know that. Maybe a notification or info blip on the chart would prevent people from asking in the future. Rather not be annoying by askin. Whats your opinion on the coolers if you don't mind me askin?
