ID-Cooling introduced the FrostFlow 240L all-in-one liquid CPU cooler. This cooler is designed to handle thermal loads of up to 200W, and is equipped with 27 mm-thick 240 mm x 120 mm radiator, with two pre-installed fans that spin between 800-2,000 RPM, pushing up to 84.5 CFM of air, each, with a noise output ranging between 20-38.2 dB, each. The pump spins at a constant 2,500 RPM, with a noise output of 25 dB, and has an MTBF rated at 50,000 hours. The pump-block unit puts up a "comet-tail" LED light-show, and features a copper micro-fin block. The cooler supports all modern CPU socket types, including LGA2011v3, LGA115x, AM#+, FM#+, etc.

All these coolers are stupid. 2000 RPM fans. 38dB is NOT quiet on any level. I have a single Noiseblocker Pro with 1500 RPM and 24dB and I can hear it quite well at max speed inside a silent insulated case. If I use stock Antec 920 fans they sound like jet engine. With Silent QFan profile I keep it nice and quiet most of the time while still running higher CPU clocks.

What's the point of water cooling if it's even more noisy than tower air coolers!? Keeping temps lower doesn't help anything. CPU is designed to run at high temperatures anyway, why not leverage that for quieter operation?

First of all RajZoR these AIO systems isent really ment to outpreform highend Aircoolers, they are a supliment instead.
I have had a Antec 620 ver.2 also about 2 years ago, and just like you with the fan included it sounded like a jetfighter with the afterburner on, so that got replaced with a Noctua fan instead.
That worked for just under 1 year then the pump stopped working and it became just a paperweight. Now Im back on aircooler with a Polimatech Megahelem with a Bitfenix fan, and everything works.

That dosent mean Ive turned my back on watercooling, since I have a full custom system just laying arround to use, but I dont like the hassle of having to clean it for make it look good and work properly and at its best.

Well, my Antec 920 is running for the 3rd year at really low RPM, meaning CPU core is usually kept slightly below 80°C. Still all working well. It's the reason why I got water cooling in the first place.

Well it is at least nice to have the option for those wanting to hit some extreme levels. You can normally limit the fan speeds as much as you want (I guess within the reasonable range) and the others can always turn it up.

Its a decent looking cooler, though nothing to special even if I do think the looks of the fans on it add a bit to the coolness factor of it.

What I don't like about AIO liquid coolers is that none of the motherboard VRM components get cooled...

Downward facing fans and tower coolers with fans blowing towards the back of the case both pass air over the mosfets/heatsinks attached to them. With CPUs being as durable as they are I would rather have some of that airflow directed to the next weakest link.
