be quiet!, the German manufacturer for premium PC components, announces an addition to its portfolio of all-in-one water cooling units with Pure Loop 2. Pure Loop 2 replaces the award-winning Pure Loop, offering substantial improvements by implementing a PWM-adjustable pump and ARGB LEDs around the cooling block. Compared to Pure Loop 2 FX, the new Pure Loop 2 series utilizes be quiet!'s brand-new Pure Wings 3 PWM high-speed fans for high static pressure and a quiet operation. To match individual cooling requirements, Pure Loop 2 will be available with four different radiator sizes: 120 mm, 240 mm, 280 mm, and 360 mm.

Pure Loop 2 water cooling units rely on up to three Pure Wings 3 PWM high-speed fans, which offer a very quiet operation of only 36.8 dBA at maximum speed. The fans also support a unique closed loop motor function, which monitors the rotational speed of the fan and makes automatic adjustments to keep the fans at a constant fan speed, no matter the air resistance of the radiator. Pure Loop 2 has 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 padding inside the housing of the pump unit add an additional layer of decoupling. The pump unit is PWM-adjustable, allowing better fine-tuning of the performance/noise balance. A nickel-coated coldplate ensures efficient cooling performance for all mainstream desktop processors and allows the use of liquid metal thermal compound.



Eye-catching design, convenient installation, and refill port
Pure Loop 2 sets a high standard in appearance thanks to its all-black design of the fans, radiator, and tubes, which is accentuated by the brushed aluminium-style cooling block. The cooling block is elevated visually with subtle ARGB illumination. be quiet! has implemented an easy-to-access refill port on the radiator, so the cooling liquid can be topped up when needed, for maximum performance over a long lifespan. A 100ml bottle of cooling is included in the retail box and should last for at least six top-ups. The highly flexible sleeved tubes allow for a convenient installation, even in cases with restricted space. Thanks to a convenient mounting system, Pure Loop 2 supports all current mainstream desktop processors from Intel and AMD.

Pure Loop 2 is available in retail from October 10 at a recommended retail price of $99.90 / €89.90 / £84.99 (120 mm), of $114.90 / €104.90 / £99.99 (240 mm), $124.90 / €114.90 / £109.99 (280 mm), and $139.90 / €129.90 / £125.99 (360 mm).

I've been using my Pure Loop 2 FX (280mm) since the end of August. It works exceptionally well at keeping the CPU temps down when gaming (even with the fan speed set to 45%). Looks great too and its almost completely silent.

If someone can help me understand the pricing of AIO, they are all over the place, I believe Arctic have very good AIO yet they aren't the most expensive?

Price doesn't always reflect quality/performance.

Eg A Toyota Corolla will cost Much less than a Mercedes-Benz C class, and it will outlast it by Decades and cost much less to own.

Asus branded AIOs can cost as much as a GPU in some markets, but perform no better than a similar spec one 1/3 the price.

Most AiO's are OEM products, meaning they buy the pump etc. from another company. ;) Arctic however produces their own stuff, which of course can reflect in the selling price.


The list is already from 2015. Maybe someone can post or create a new list. Would be something "sticky" worthy. :)

How do you bleed the loop?
Let me see, if there only was some sort of open hole available to let the air out. Oh right, there is a hole in the radiator you can put fluid in. That should just as easy let air out. You might need three hands to hold it properly and pour coolant at the same time though
You don't. You can only top off at the port.
It is possible to drain the whole thing and refill it. Why anybody'd want to do that instead of just a top up, is not immediately obvious to me.
