    Reserved - First Looks (Not really)
    Inside the box:
    Pretty standard packing as far as AIO goes.
    Opening it up: (Manual on top)


    Cooler in question, all nicely wrapped:


    Mountings, I like how they painted the brackets black, if only the mounting threads/nutss were also black, it would be a perfect match in a full black system:


    Manual on how to mount the cooler and accessories.

    With Intel mounting mounted, not sure of a single screw approach but it secures it well enough as the brackets does not bend unless a lot of pressure is applied on it.


    Not a polished based but at least its free of marks and relatively flat.


    The tubes are 29CM, rather conventional for most AIO


    Rad width is 28mm and its a standard thin AIO width


    Fan is a 11 blade, 120mmx25mm fan which spins at 2200rpm, sadly a sleeve bearing.





    With fan, it would be 53mm.


    Fan mounted into the frostflow



    Mounted into test system:


    LED effects looks good. Sadly it only run clockwise at all times.

    Reserved: Testing.
    Happened to have a system that popped up for troubleshooting so used it instead.
    CPU: I7 2600
    Motherboard: MSI Z77MA-G45
    Ram: KVR 16GB
    GPU: MSI GTX660 Gaming 2GB
    SSD: Kingston V300 120GB
    HDD: Samsung F3 1TB
    PSU: Seasonic P-1000W
    Casing: Lancool K62 (1x 140mm fan intake, 1x 120mm exhaust)
    Cooler tested: Intel stock cooler, Cooolermaster Hyper 212+/Evo and well above.
    It gives a baseline performance figures from the stock cooler to a decent aircooler to the AIO.
    Test used: IBT (2 runs at maximum).
    Results:
    Idle:
    Stock Cooler


    Hyper 212+


    Frostflow 120L (1000RPM)


    Frostflow 120L (Fan at max speed)


    Load:
    Stock HSF:


    Hyper 212+


    Frostflow 120L (1000RPM)


    Frostflow 120L (fan at max speed)


    Chart:


    Its not too bad as a entry level AIO but I feel that the fan is rather ill-suited to the application.

    Conclusion:

    It a pretty nice AIO for those who want a red theme AIO, I do recommend a better static pressure fan for it so that you can extract more performance out of it.
    Pros:
    Bigger tubing compared to others at its pricepoint
    Black mounts
    Build, none of the plastic creaks when pressed and it feels rather solid

    Cons:
    Rather hard to change the rotary connector as its very rigid.
    Make the screws black as well.
