In today’s tech world, high-end cooling is becoming more prevalent - and necessary - with the rising popularity of dual- and quad-core processors that pump out incredible amounts of heat. However, many enthusiasts are hesitant to try things like liquid cooling, due to an increased risk of component damage and time-consuming maintenance. CoolIT has long been in the business of helping enthusiasts make the transition from air to liquid cooling easier. I have the pleasure of reviewing their new PURE cooler, an all-in-one CPU cooling solution that blends elements of air and liquid cooling - which CoolIT claims is not only easy to install, but carries a low risk/high performance ratio. Let’s find out if the PURE is as good as advertised.
The PURE cooler comes in a flashy black box, which is intelligently packed to help protect the pre-filled liquid system during transit. The design of the box and foam encasement is simple but effective.
Below, you'll see the cooler and everything that comes packaged with it. The PURE's mounting hardware allows you to mount the CPU block to just about any socket type, a big ease-of-use advantage.
The tubing between the PURE's radiator and the CPU block could be a little longer - more on this later.
