Bought this for a small update on my old puter
I am installing it as we speak, kit came-in no signs of leaks, AMD4 board brackets and hardware is included in case somebody want to go cheap on their Ryzen threadripper (!!!) I perso have a Corsair kit on mine but heh, Aigo is good enough for the old 9550 intel

Will report on temp differences and ease of install later on

OH, just a note; what I got is not the Serac kit (its last year) but the new Icy T120 kit that is why I have the AMD4 kit included

Icy has slightly less boring RGB on the pump

Just to clarify: Does not support the Threadripper TR4/SP3 socket. Does not fully cover all active dies. Threadripper is *massive* compared to regular AM4 ryzens.

Also to clarify: 60 dollars of well chosen heatsink won't leak, or have pump failure, and will almost certainly (99.99%) cool better than this AIO. Very likely quieter, too. Check reviews of Noctua's D14 and D15 heatsinks. Phanteks also make the TC14PE and thermalright have a nice stepped cooler that sort of works push pull with the rear fan on your case called the Macho. There are other oversized heatsinks but those are the ones which come immediately to mind. I have the older D14 on a 3770k and can maintain 30-35c delta over room temperature on a not-delidded, thermal glop shite cpu which has the snot overclocked out of it. On an open chassis, 2 feet from my head. Never hear the CPU fan.

Well, this piece of crap make my cpu run 15C cooler than usual so happy-happy

I am not a heavy-duty overclocker, were talking about an old 10 yrs antec 900 box here :p
