ID-Cooling SE 224 RGB Review

Introduction


ID-Cooling, while still considered a relative newcomer to the PC-cooling market, having gotten their start back in 2013, has come a long way. They have secured a solid foothold while at the same time rapidly expanding into new regions. With each revision of a product or new product release, they have introduced new improvements or additional features, including RGB LEDs, everyone's love-it or hate-it trend of the moment. Pushing fans, all-in-one liquid coolers, and air coolers, they have the opportunity to be a major player if they continue to improve their overall product portfolio.


In today's review, I look at ID-Cooling's SE 224 RGB. This single tower, single-fan heatsink is a 4 heat pipe design that looks to be fairly similar to many other entries in the mid-range market, meaning it will face some stiff competition. However, unlike some of its competition, it does offer RGB lighting, which will set it apart from some of the older designs previously reviewed. In general, it will be quite interesting to see if there is more here than just fancy lights and good looks, so without further ado, let's take a closer look at what ID-Cooling's SE 224 RGB has to offer.
