I must admit, I saw it.. got a little excited.... then just ended up at why?

Bigger is better but that poor pump :ROFLMAO:

I don't think I would ever recommend it to anyone. I always thought that the the 360mm options were pushing the pump capacity. If you're over-saturating a 360mm AIO cooler then I definitely think it's time to consider proper open loop cooling.

My god that's absurd I love it

But yeah that seems like a solid way to kill a pump really quick? Maybe Corsair have found a way to have a super pump?

EDIT: Going through the images that pump does look massive

I think it's their answer for the TR4. Every other offering they had was sub par as it wouldn't cover enough of the heat spreader IMO.

It does indeed support TR4

Good review here including threadripper


There are very few cases that would fit this, really only ones designed for open loops.

Released to coincide with the 7000 series cases, perhaps? Honestly I don't quite see the point. Each step up in cooler size offers diminishing returns. If you need this, you should go for a proper open loop system with multiple radiators.

Was just having a a look there. It seems it's the same pump & cold plate. I'm not surprised as it's a good efficient pump etc, but it's asking a lot. Additionally, I still wouldn't have it for TR4 as the cold plate still won't cover the whole heatsink. I think it'll be less efficient than the Coolermaster for example.
