Thermaltake Floe DX RGB 360 TT Premium Edition Review
Mike Sanders / 7 months ago
As this is an RGB 360 cooler, there is obviously a bit of leg work necessary to get this fitted to your system. Fortunately, the manual provided is both excellent and detailed. Admittedly, it lacks any written instructions, but that’s likely just to compensate for various regions.
One of the biggest time factors in getting the cooler set-up is in the pump head mounting system and, of course, in screwing the 3 fans to the radiator. The latter is, fortunately, quite straight forward and the screws are actually a decent fit.
It should be noted that the mounting system for the pump head is a little unusual. We have seen it before in prior Thermaltake models, but it involved a bracket and a clip that isn’t necessarily hard but will take a little figuring out.
In regards to the connections, as you might expect with 3 fans and a pump head, there’s a lot of cables coming at you from all directions. With the Thermaltake hub, however, organising these within a chassis shouldn’t prove any problem and actually allows you to really coordinate some nice cable management.
So, how is this to install? Well, from out of the box and onto our test bench, this cooler took me around 15 minutes. This isn’t bad for a 360mm cooler, particularly one with such a detailed RGB system.
This time factor will, of course, increase when fitted inside a chassis as you look to get those cables well hidden. On the whole, however, this isn’t bad at all!
