This seems like a top contender for the best 280mm AIO. Great job on Arctic's side of things. The only thing left to test is whether or not there will be more or less horror stories with them, as well as, how many are DOA and the longevity of each cooler.

I have one of their older 120 models (push pull) on an R7 1700 (non-x, but OCd to 3.8)- cools extremely well and is super quiet - I only hear it when 3D rendering (100% load for more than a few minutes).

This one in the review looks really nice as well. I wish more manufacturers would stop making their products look like action figure toys.

I'm using very good CM Nepton 140XL which is doing great job on my 3700x Ryzen but is pushing it's 6th year and time to change the cooler. Good price, easy and simple wiring and that little fan should make it a strong contender i intermediate bracket. Now just to find it in Europe. Is it already for sale in US ?

Should be available in Europe -- I'm pretty sure Arctic is a European company -- based in Germany maybe?

I looked back to compare this with my EVGA clc280 and something doesn't add up. The clc280 at full fans was only a 37 degree delta t, while this is 56. Was there a hardware change that wasn't mentioned? The hardware and software mentioned in the articles is the same.
