Sapphire looks to break into the all-in-one liquid cooler market with the Nitro+ S240-A. Based on Asetek technology and equipped with hybrid fans, ARGB lighting, and a unique look, it appears to be a winner, but appearances can be deceiving.

Performance per dollar is lacking
This should've been all caps, bold and within the old MS Word sparkling borders.

Similar performance to $30-$50 coolers at 3-4 times the price.

If they can't match Arctic's warranty on AIO's they should not be coming to market. I'll stick with giving my money to Arctic if I decide to go with water, otherwise Noctua.

The price must be a joke.

Indeed asking $180 for a 240 AIO is just pure insanity , even more so knowing their AIO offers nothing special in terms of performance or looks for that matter .

Hell one can buy a Liquid Freezer 240 or even an EK AIO 240 Classic for half that price which shows how hard Sapphire are tripping !

I was considering this cooler, but decided against it because,
1. Too expensive - Just for the bling? Forget it.
2. Asetek - I am not a big fan of Asetek's design.
3. Short warranty - I think Sapphire is trying to make warranty consistent across all its product. That's 2 years. But in today's context, it is the shortest in the market.
