SilentiumPC Intros Navis Pro Series AIO Liquid CPU Coolers

SilentiumPC today introduced the Navis Pro series all-in-one, closed-loop liquid CPU coolers. These coolers are available in two models based on radiator size, the Navis Pro 120 (120 mm x 120 mm radiator), and the Navis Pro 240 (240 mm x 120 mm radiator). What sets this cooler apart is a unique 9-pole pump motor that keeps the noise output of the pump-block under 15 dBA at all times.

The included Sigma HPE fans come with fluid-dynamic bearings for high endurance, and spin between 800 to 2,300 RPM, pushing up to 74 CFM of air, with a noise output as low as 22 dBA, each. The pump-block has a rated MTBF of 80,000 hours. Most common CPU socket types are supported, including AM4, AM3(+), FM2(+), LGA2066, LGA2011(v3), and LGA115x. Backed by 5-year warranties, the Navis Pro 120 is priced at 55€, and the Navis Pro 240 at 75€.

Lots of new AIO coolers lately, with low prices. That got me wondering, how much is my Corsair H110 selling for these days? It's still $115, and the H115 (same size) goes for $140? How does Corsair still get these high prices, with all the competition? Cooler master has a 240mm AIO selling for $39 on sale, $60 regular price.

I was wondering the same, but there are other factors than the hardware itself, like : radiator thickness is different. Software packages like CAM from NZXT. Variable pump rate, prolongs pump life, instead of just running on max RPM. Warranty : it's one thing to have 1-2 year warranty, quite another to be 6 or so. Fans included in the package. That's a few I can think of.

But the REAL question here is, what are you actually getting for those low prices ?

Most of the time, you get what you pay for, so it remains to be seen where & how & why they can sell these so much less than the corsairs and krakens etc that we all know and love.... they have to be cutting some corners somewhere to get to those low price points... or else they've suddenly discovered some new manufacturing technique that dramatically reduces their R&D and production costs....

Perhaps a TPU review is in order to answer these questions, yes ?

There's no significant reason for the price markups. Coolit makes a single line of coolers supporting different fan setups, Asetek makes two types of pumps, each with or without a USB header or RGB, and offers a slim and thick version for each size. All that manufacturers are really offering are software and fans.

All that said, this could be a new pump design if the <15dB claim is true, but I'm thinking nah.

My H110 had a 2 year warranty (it's 3 years old and still working fine), and the included fans were crappy sleeve bearings that rattled annoyingly (replaced with 2 x $20 Noctuas). Thickness is 29mm, similar to most others. Corsair was nearly the only AIO choice back then, but now they seem over-priced and underwhelming. They should sell these with premium mag-lev fans and stronger pump if they continue with these high prices. And where's their 360mm rads?

Basically a double-post, but FYI:
http://www.asetek.com/desktop/do-it-yourself/
http://www.coolitsystems.com/enthusiast/

I would not hold out expecting innovation in this market in North America (at least until the Asetek patent expires)

(Eg if you want a 360mm radiator go with Fractal or Thermaltake, but the performance difference is negligible given that they all use the same weak/underwhelming pump)

Third edit: If this SilentiumPC CLC uses a non-Asetek/Cool-It pump do not expect availability in NA

Ah, yes - this (started in 2013): https://www.techpowerup.com/237181/asetek-loses-patent-infringement-lawsuit-against-cooler-master

I am not sure what $60, 240mm CLC you are referring to, but I assume that it is an older model.
This one and it's their latest model, I think - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103252 At that price, it's sold out for now, (was in stock on 11-14-2017) but has "auto notify" button, so more stock will be available. The thing is, the RGB model of this exact same cooler costs $115! https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=9SIA6J367N2795 So they think 2 RGB fans are worth $55? Asetek lost the recent European lawsuit, but in 2015 they won the US lawsuit against CM - https://www.techpowerup.com/232801/asetek-receives-award-of-usd-600k-after-patent-infringement-lawsuit Not sure where this stands now, but with CM selling $60 240mm AIO, it doesn't seem likely they're paying Asetek any royalties.
