be quiet! Announces Silent Loop 2 Liquid CPU Cooler

be quiet!, the market leader for PC power supplies in Germany since 2007, presents the Silent Loop 2 all-in-one water cooling system. At the heart of this powerful cooling solution is a high-quality insulated pump. The three-chamber design and extensive use of insulating material effectively eliminate most of the vibrations and turbulences in the pump housing, thereby reducing operating noise to a minimum. The included Silent Wings 3 high-speed fans ensure low noise levels at high performance. be quiet! has equipped Silent Loop 2 with a large contact area so that even processors with protruding heat spreaders are adequately cooled.

The user can control the pump speed by adjusting the input voltage from 9 to 12 volts. A first for be quiet! is the discreet ARGB lighting on the aluminium top of the pump unit. The lighting can be individually adjusted, either with the included controller or via a 5 V ARGB-header on the motherboard. The be quiet! logo is separately illuminated with white LEDs which can be turned off, if desired. On the inside of the nickel-plated copper cooling surface are more than 120 micro fins. These provide a very high surface area through which the absorbed heat is efficiently transferred to the cooling liquid circulating in the loop. For this purpose, the pump has an equally quiet and powerful 6-pole motor with three phases.
Silent Wings 3 fans for high performance at low noise levels
The be quiet! Silent Loop 2 water cooling system is available with radiators in 120, 240, 280, and 360-millimeter length. Up to three Silent Wings 3 high-speed fans with a diameter of 120 or 140 millimeters ensure that the radiator's cooling liquid is cooled down quickly. The high-quality PWM fans feature a low-wear and durable Fluid Dynamic Bearing, which, combined with a 6-pole motor and the airflow-optimized fan blades, ensures high static pressure as well as a smooth operation. As a result, Silent Loop 2 is not just the first ARGB water cooling system from be quiet!, but also its most powerful to date.

Long service life thanks to refill port
Most all-in-one water coolers are closed systems that do not allow for coolant refills. To increase the service life of Silent Loop 2, be quiet! has integrated an easily accessible refill port into the radiator. A bottle with the appropriate cooling fluid is also included in the scope of delivery. The Silent Loop 2 water cooling system is suitable for all common processor sockets. A mounting kit for sTRX4 CPUs will be available separately from June 2021 onwards.

The be quiet! Silent Loop 2 will be available in stores from April 6. Recommended retail prices are €99 / $99.90 / £93.99 (120 mm), €129 / $129.90 / £119.99 (240 mm), €139 / $139.90 / £129.99 (280 mm) and €159 / $159.90 / £134.99 (360 mm). Silent Loop 2 will not be available in the US.

I don’t typically use AIO’s but that’s a really nice looking cooler. Love the minimalist design of the CPU block/pump.

Well, I do use AIO's, and have been thinking about a replacement for my H115i, which will probably go poopoo after 6 long years of hard workin, hehehe :D

And I too really like the asthetics of this unit, as it would go perfectly with my rig (black & red), but it won't do me no good to look at this one since I can't get it :(

They have used Alphacool in the past, so my guess it's them

Same here mostly because they are designed with a short service life but designs like this seem to have addressed that.

And yeah, this is a great looking cooler, too bad about the patent abuse...

No I don't think it's alphacool. This collaboration on the first Silent Loop had been a failure ... The recent pure loop comes from raijintek but dont sure for this...

I bet this AiO would perform better with non-bequiet fans that have a square frame to seal against the radiator.

The 360 unit costs a bit more than the Arctic 360 but it does give you additional features like the ability to refill and controlling fan speed and the pump separately(it seems).
It would have to perform similarly to be worth it in my opinion.

where is the 420mm version?

This might sound silly, but I'd do the 280 over the 360, since its a small enough difference.

Do you have a source on that ? The pump placement is similar, but the pump itself doesn't seem to be the same. Enarmax is also using that concept, but their pump also got different spec.

Hoses look to short on the 360 to front mount it with the hoses at the bottom.
Having the hoses at the top makes the refill port at the bottom moot.

The Silent Loop 2, 280mm will go perfect with my bequiet! Dark Base Pro 900 Rev 2 case.

That should be a secondary concern.

This explains the other, more important reasons why the position/orientation of your AIO is important, noise, failure, short lifespan and lame cooling.
