Thermaltake Floe Riing RGB 240 TT Premium Edition Review

👤by Matthew Hodgson Comments 📅14-12-17
The Thermaltake Floe Riing 240 TT Premium Edition arrives just within the £150 price mark, putting it up there with the best that Corsair, BeQuiet!, NZXT and Cooler Master have to offer; we would struggle to recommend the product at that price, unless you desperately want the RGB lighting that the product offers.

Looking at cooling performance, the Thermaltake does a decent job of dissipating the 160W of heat generated by the 3930K @ 4.4GHz, however, in doing so, it also generates quite a lot of noise by spinning the fans at close to 1,700 RPM. If utilised on something a little more tame, such as an i5 8600K or possibly even an i7 8700K, both of which claim a TDP of 91W, noise should be kept within a reasonable window.

The RGB lighting on the fans, as well as the pump, looks fantastic although some work could be done on making the transitions a little smoother. We looked at the Corsair LL120 fans a few weeks back which offered roughly the same in terms of lighting but the transitions were buttery smooth.

The main stumbling block for us was the software. It felt like very little effort had been put into designing or testing the software, to the point where simple tasks became ridiculously difficult. If Thermaltake could take anything from this review, please do something about the software.

If you’re looking for a simple and easy to install all-in-one cooling solution, with RGB lighting out of the box, this kit will provide exactly what you’re looking for, but your money may be better spent elsewhere
