For starters the hoses are a fraction of the size of my previous Corsair. More comparable to the Asetek of the early 2000s. The included USB connector will not reach around a motherboard tray so you are FORCED to drape it across your video card which looks horrible. This AIO barely cools any better then the stock heatsink i was using till this arrived. The proprietary connector to power the pump pushes NZXT agenda buy using this poor mans rgb fans. comes with a foot long cable attacted for their proprietary rgb connectors. Would of gladly traded the extra cable so I could REACH MY USB HEADER. Also make sure your motherboard has not one not two but THREE 4 pin connectors for your CPU. It makes absolutely no sense why this pump requires a 3 pin for the pump PLUS a sata connection when it controls NO FANS AT ALL. oh wait because they integrate their hideous RGB onto the pump instead of FANS WHICH ARE NEEDED.
The CAM software is horrible. There seems to be no way to save your settings to your AIO. So anytime you turn y our PC on it defaults to their hideous color scheme. If you unhook the cable that looks so ugly wrapped around your video card it looks wont even turn on. Your forced to use it. Its like when you buy a new cell phone and u get the 18in charger cord and you cant even pick it up off the table without unhooking it. Its about a good foot too short. may work for a micro atx but then again a 280mm aio wont even fit in one.
All in all i have been building custom PCs now for 22 years. Used everything from cheap Chinese parts to the highest end available and i have NEVER been so disappointed in a single product in my life.
AIO is installed on the front of the case with the fans set to 800rpm in a pull configuration (super quiet) and the pump set to 100% at 3000rpm ( super quiet as well). Currently using stock thermal paste that came pre-applied. May change to Thermal Grizzly later.
The CAM software works great and have had no issues that everyone else is talking about. Took me no time to get it up and running.
If you can afford it and would like to splurge a little, please do yourself the favor and just click on the buy it now button hahaha.
Only Con is that it should have freaking RGB fans at this damn price point :/
Well, the fix from NZXT was to add the internal USB hub to the system and plug into the hub. So this was installed and not the unit is running with no issues. As for NZXTR I will say they freely supplied the hub so that was good on them.
I would give this unit a higher rating except the issues with the Motherboard and the NZXT software did not want to play nice together.
It is yet to be seen if NZXT will offer to fully replace my unit with an updated one, but as a stopgap, at least they are offering to send owners impacted by the current Ryzen incompatibility issue with one of their internal USB hubs for free. This will apparently fix the issue, although my ticket is still processing and I have not received a hub to verify if this is true. And even though I appreciate the workaround that NZXT is offering, it irks me that the company has not yet offered to just fully replace the impacted units since it was, according to themselves, an oversight on their part.
I'll update once either a hub arrives or NZXT provides more feedback regarding a replacement unit, but in the meantime, I still have a few thoughts:
- Installing this on an AM4 motherboard was a breeze. I've fought with getting other thermal plate mounting brackets to either fit the pump unit or onto standoffs before, but this one was as smooth an installation as I've ever had.
- The USB only drives the LCD display, so the pump itself still functions just fine. Based on that, I can say that it is whisper quiet.
- The performance so far exceeds most every other AIO I've used in other recent builds, all of which used Ryzen 7 3700x's and all of which idled in the low 40s. Even after running a number of benchmarks for around an hour, it never peaked about the mid-50s.
- The included Aer P fans are pretty so-so. They move a lot of air, but that might be the problem. I never could find an RPM at which they weren't noticeable, so will likely consider replacing them. Also no RGB, if that's your thing, although I can't really fault NZXT since it's the pump's LCD that's the selling point here.
- NZXT's much-hated CAM software (required to control the LCD) is, admittedly, a lot better than it used to be. Granted I couldn't test the LCD functionality since the USB wouldn't register on my machine, but just having used CAM for lighting and system monitoring in several previous NZXT case builds, I'll honestly say it's not bad to work with.
tl/dr: The AIO itself seems pretty awesome, but at present, might not work with your motherboard. At least without a workaround that will supposedly be provided by NZXT. I'll update pending NZXT's suggested fix.
Update: I've left my original review as-written since I think it could still be helpful for Ryzen owners, but after receiving NZXT's hub, thought I would provide an addendum.
I installed the USB hub provided by NZXT and indeed, it solved the problem. My issue, however, is that it is inexplicably powered by Molex, and given that it would literally be the only component in my entire case powered by Molex, I didn't want to use it.
Fortunately for me, I discovered that I could also successfully drive the LCD screen using a spare USB slot on my Corsair Commander Pro hub, so if you have happen to have one of those, it seems that also offers a workable solution.
Still no word on a replacement unit from NZXT, even after multiple emails and several months, which is irksome, but at least everything is working now.

Randomly one day it lit up, briefly, then never again.
Very disappointed. :(
