    For near £200 I'd be thinking copper radiators. As there's no mention of it I'm guessing this is still aluminium.

    That's a lot of money for mediocre cooling performance, even if it is quiet. I wonder how quiet it'd be with better cooling ability and just running the fans and pump slower.

    Broadly agree with the review's conclusions... my previous-gen Fractal Celsius S36 360 is virtually silent under all but the very toughest of workloads (e.g. multi-track 4k / 5k video rendering) - but some manual tweaking of fan curves was needed to achieve a good balance of performance vs quietness that I was happy with.

    It was also fairly easy to install and compact enough to not overhang the DIMM sockets - often a key consideration with Ryzen 3 series desktop CPUs - especially if you like your RAM modules with a splash of RGB :-)

    Would I buy the same module again? Probably.

    The new version with RGB? Harder to say - as the price point is a little steep for quite a small step forwards in overall performance - so that makes for a big RGB tax!

    @Hexus Do you have temperature & noise level data for a stock AMD cooler? I'd be interested to see decent figures for how much difference aftermarket coolers make.
