be quiet! Pure Loop 2 FX 360mm AIO Liquid Cooler Review
Mike Sanders / 1 week ago
be quiet! undoubtedly represents one of the most premium and respected brands when it comes to their cooling solutions. Having reviewed many of them in the past, I have never failed to be impressed with their performance, and, of course, the amazingly low levels of acoustic output. – With the newly released be quiet! Pure Loop 2 FX, however, we have something a little different to their usual ‘norm’.
Following on from prior product releases last year, the be quiet! Pure Loop 2 FX represents their latest cooling product to feature ARGB lighting. – No, don’t worry, be quiet! hasn’t abandoned consumers who don’t like ARGB products, but for those of you who do, the Pure Loop 2 FX is well worth checking out as a new and very impressive AIO liquid cooler product!
be quiet! Pure Loop 2 FX
The Pure Loop 2 FX is available in a 240mm, 280mm, and 360mm configuration. For this specific review, however, we’ll be taking a closer look at the top-spec 360mm variant (and no, not just because we like big things). – Offering high levels of cooling performance with bright and vibrant ARGB lighting to both the CPU block and radiator fans, I think that the be quiet! Pure Loop 2 FX is looking to strike a balance between sleek and stylish aesthetics while offering something for those who want to take things to the next visual level.
Overall, it packs a lot of impressive features and is clearly looking to represent itself as a flagship product for be quiet!. Something, I suspect, that’s going to be more than warranted as we take a closer look at it during this review!

What Does be quiet! Have To Say?
“Compared to the current Pure Loop series, Pure Loop 2 FX brings stunning improvements to the table for this AIO water cooler: the white LEDs around the cooling block are replaced with ARGB LEDs, while the Pure Wings 2 PWM high-speed fans on the radiator make room for Light Wings PWM high-speed fans for higher static pressure and better visual effects. By popular demand the pump is now PWM-adjustable, allowing better fine-tuning of the performance/noise balance. On top of that, the water cooler includes an ARGB and PWM fan hub.”
