ID-Cooling Frostflow 120L AIO CPU Cooler Review

Introduction


I’m sure a lot of our readers haven’t heard of ID-Cooling before, as they’ve been a dominant brand in eastern markets for a while, even doing a lot of OEM work for other brands. However, all that is quickly changing and they’re new products have been pinging our radar for a while now and gaining interest in the PC building community, so we couldn’t wait to put them to the test. Their latest AIO water cooler is the Frostflow 120L, perfect for those who want to take an adventure into water cooling, without the headaches or the high-cost and maintenance of custom loop cooling.

The 120L is reasonably well equipped, with a 120mm radiator and fan design, which ensures compatibility with a huge amount of chassis products, a nice quality aluminium construction radiator, copper cold plate and a ceramic bearing pump.

The packaging is pretty straight forward, with a clear image of the cooler and the LED lighting on the front, as well as a quick run-down of the main specifications.

Around the back, a nice quote from ID-Cooling that gives a little more information about the product.

In the box, you’ll find all the things you need to get things installed. This includes high-quality mounting screws, a universal backplate, AMD and Intel brackets, as well as a small tube of thermal paste.

The included fan is one of ID-Cooling’s own designs, and that’s no bad thing as this is one great looking fan! The fins have ridges to help better direct the airflow and there are rubber anti-vibration pads on each of the mounting corners.

The fan comes fitted with a 4-pin PWM connector.

The radiator is a slim design, which means it’s likely not as well suited to high-end overclocking, but it does mean it’ll be more compatible with compact chassis designs while only requiring a single fan to dissipate heat.

The radiator isn’t ugly, but it is a fairly standard all-black design and that means it should blend in with your build with ease.

The tubing is really nice, with a tight weave coating that leaves it flexible, but very durable.

The pump is nice and compact, with a stylish red LED array on the top and a small ID logo in the middle.

The copper base plate is very nicely finished, with a large and flat contact surface that should fit nicely over your CPU of choice. The pipes are mounted using pivot fittings, allowing you more maneuverability and this should ease the installation process.
