be quiet! Announces Pure Loop All-in-One Liquid CPU Cooling Solution

be quiet!, market leader for PC power supplies in Germany since 2007, is introducing a brand-new product line of all-in-one water cooling solutions. Pure Loop is the water cooling unit of choice for all price-conscious users that seek high performance and silent operation. Features like a doubly decoupled pump, noise-optimized Pure Wings 2 fans, an easy-to-access refill port and flexible sleeved tubes make the Pure Loop silent, reliable and versatile, while the white LED illumination on the cooling block and the black design set high standards in appearance. To match individual cooling requirements, Pure Loop will be available with four different radiator sizes: 120 mm, 240 mm, 280 mm, and 360 mm.

Pure Loop water cooling units have a doubly decoupled pump to reduce the transfer of vibrations. By being mounted on the tubes, the pump case is decoupled from the CPU cooling block and radiator. On top of that, rubber pads inside the housing of the pump unit add an additional layer of decoupling. Additionally, be quiet! includes up to three Pure Wings 2 fans, which feature nine airflow-optimized fan blades for a perfect airflow and a low noise level. A nickel-coated cold-plate ensures efficient cooling performance for all mainstream desktop processors and allows the use of liquid metal thermal compound.
Convenient installation and refill options
The highly flexible sleeved tubes allow for a convenient installation even in cases with restricted space and increase the lifespan of the Pure Loop by preventing tube fractures, even over time. As a testament to the reliability of the new water cooler series be quiet! has implemented an easy-to-access refill port on the radiator, so the cooling liquid can be topped up every two years or when required, for maximum performance over a long lifespan. A 100 ml bottle of coolant is included in the retail box and should last for at least six top-ups.

Eye-catching design with subtle LED lighting
Pure Loop is not only meant to set a high standard in affordable water cooling performance, but also in appearance. To that end, be quiet! has opted for an all-black design of the fans, radiator and tubes that will look great in every PC case. The black design is accentuated by the brushed aluminium-style cooling block, which is elevated visually with subtle white LED illumination. This makes Pure Loop a true eye-catcher.

Four models with full mainstream desktop socket support
Thanks to a convenient mounting system, Pure Loop supports all current desktop processors from Intel and AMD, with the exception of AMD Threadripper (Socket TR4/sTRX4). Pure Loop will be available in four different sizes with model recommendations based on the intended platform usage:
  • Pure Loop 120 mm Intel Core i3, AMD Ryzen 3 (or lower)
  • Pure Loop 240 mm Intel Core i5, AMD Ryzen 5
  • Pure Loop 280 mm Intel Core i5/i7, AMD Ryzen 5/7
  • Pure Loop 360 mm Intel Core i7/i9, AMD Ryzen 7/9
Pure Loop will be available for purchase from October 6 at a suggested retail price of $84.90/£82.99/€84.90 (120 mm), $94.90/£92.99/€94.90 (240 mm), $104.90/£102.99/€104.90 (280 mm) and $119.90/£114.99/€119.90 (360 mm).

I love the minimalist yet stylish design of some be quiet! products, even their packaging reflects that.

3 Years... thats not that much but its ok...


I hope they changed the block design to actual microfins. I am curious about performance

These are renders so it's hard to tell much from the images.

Are these AIO's copper waterblock, aluminium radiator mixes? 3-year warranty makes me suspect this is yet another cheap mixed-metal loop that will degrade over the warranty period and die within 5 years.

That's also a render.
Anandtech says nothing about the radiator so we'll assume it's aluminium.
I like the idea of a fill port on AIOs, though without knowing what type of metals are involved, and also what type of coolant (ie, what glycol concentration and what inhibitors are being used) you'd need to drain and flush the system and refil from scratch with a fresh coolant mix. DI water would just corrode the heck outta a copper/alu mixed loop so getting the coolant right would be critical.

Interesting that they used their Pure Wings fan line. If I remember correctly, the Silent Wings line at equal size and RPM produces more static pressure. Probably just a measure to keep the price down.

Silent wings 2 and 3 in both 120 and 140 i used them in a push pull config overclocking a 9600k to 5.2 GHZ with an Nzxt 62 Great temps increasing RPM only in Gaming or rendering through Asus Fan expert...they are fantastic and quiet

BUT is it "quiet"?? I'm sure it is. Very interesting design for sure. I like the look / branding on all their products, will be investing in them next upgrade for sure.

interesting how they have an idea to put the pump like that, it may not suitable if you have small tight case

Yeah, I've got the SW3 as case fans (2x140 for intake, and 2x120 for exhaust (top and rear)). Insanely quiet. Would love to do a side-by-side noise comparison with Noctuas (know there's been comparisons already done but I mean personally) but can't justify buying another entire case worth of high end fans. Maybe if I build another system though...

Of course it would be, BQ make some fantastic low noise hardware

I once bought a BeQuiet PSU and to my surprise it was the quickest to die of all PSU's I've ever had.
That experience really soured the brand for me I fear.
Meanwhile it's a brand now often used by reviewers in their test system and they seem to be well pleased with those PSU's.
Hard to un-think my experience though, once bitten twice shy.

I don't have any experience with their PSUs, but I've been very happy with their fans and CPU coolers. As Mussels said, great low-noise hardware

Did you invoke the warranty? I'm using two at home going on several years now and I have maybe 50+ in circulation at one of the offices with not a single failure.

BeQuiet don't do anything to warrant the low-quality you're associating them with - all the reviewed units I've seen going back a decade are high-quality FSP designs, coming off the same line as other popular, highly-rated brands like Antec, EVGA, Gigabyte, NZXT, Silverstone to name just a few. FSP also make their own units which are decent.

Don't get me wrong, there are also some cheap PSUs made for low budgets by FSP but none of the lines BeQuiet! make are ultra-budget models. Their models range from good (but nothing special) to excellent, and I haven't seen anything less than 9/10 or more from one of their units on review for at least 5 years.

As I said, once bitten twice shy. It's hard to shake off even if you hear good reports from others. Mind you my experience was quite a while ago too.
