be quiet! announces an addition to its portfolio of all-in-one water cooling units with Pure Loop 2. Pure Loop 2 replaces the award-winning Pure Loop, offering substantial improvements by implementing a PWM-adjustable pump and ARGB LEDs around the cooling block. Compared to Pure Loop 2 FX, the new Pure Loop 2 series utilizes be quiet!’s brand-new Pure Wings 3 PWM high-speed fans for high static pressure and quiet operation. To match individual cooling requirements, Pure Loop 2 will be available with four different radiator sizes: 120mm, 240mm, 280mm, and 360mm.
Doubly decoupled pump and closed loop motor
Pure Loop 2 water cooling units rely on up to three Pure Wings 3 PWM high-speed fans, which offer a very quiet operation of only 36.8dB(A) at maximum speed. The fans also support a unique closed-loop motor function, which monitors the rotational speed of the fan and makes automatic adjustments to keep the fans at a constant fan speed, no matter the air resistance of the radiator. Pure Loop 2 has a doubly decoupled pump to reduce the transfer of vibrations: by being mounted on the tubes, the pump case is decoupled from the CPU cooling block and radiator. On top of that, rubber padding inside the housing of the pump unit add an additional layer of decoupling. The pump unit is PWM-adjustable, allowing better fine-tuning of the performance/noise balance. A nickel-coated coldplate ensures efficient cooling performance for all mainstream desktop processors and allows the use of a liquid metal thermal compound.
Eye-catching design, convenient installation, and refill port
Pure Loop 2 sets a high standard in appearance thanks to its all-black design of the fans, radiator, and tubes, which is accentuated by the brushed aluminium-style cooling block. The cooling block is elevated visually with subtle ARGB illumination. be quiet! has implemented an easy-to-access refill port on the radiator, so the cooling liquid can be topped up when needed, for maximum performance over a long lifespan. A 100ml bottle of cooling is included in the retail box and should last for at least six top-ups. The highly flexible sleeved tubes allow for a convenient installation, even in cases with restricted space. Thanks to a convenient mounting system, Pure Loop 2 supports all current mainstream desktop processors from Intel and AMD.
