Thermaltake Floe Riing 360 AIO

Anyone have this? I read some reviews somewhere, and people were saying the tubing was somewhat short. Apparently, they were unable to do front mounts in some cases, even in Thermaltake cases. I've got a full-size case on the way (TT View 71 Snow) and was wondering if anyone had thoughts on whether it would reach to the front of the case. I can always mount it on top, but the plan was to do a front mount.

Looking at other builds with that configuration it seems that the tubing is to short to put the aio in front.

You can put it on top like https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Xtq48d or on the side https://pcpartpicker.com/b/PdWD4D

Good find! Thanks for sharing that.

Well, if I end up having to mount this on top, then I may go with 280 radiator instead. Everyone has said a 360 is overkill for an i5-9600K (I want an AIO for aesthetics), so how would a 280 AIO do for an overclocked 9600K? What about an overclocked i7-9700K? There's a chance I may upgrade to that CPU.

(Edit- I kinda want to stick with a Floe Riing AIO to get the ring fans. Planning on more Riing fans for the case.)

If you think about it there isn't really a big difference between a 360mm and a 280mm.

Surface area 280mm= 140mm*280mm= 39200mm2

Surface area 360mm= 120mm*360mm= 43200mm2

So temps between those aio's the difference won't be more then between 1 and 3 degrees really.

The 9700k will be a bit hotter then the 9600k since it has 2 more cores and threads to cool. But all depends also on the voltage used so i can't really give you exact temps but both the 360mm and 280mm aio should have no problems to cool any of those cpu's (again depending on voltages mostly).

Good point! I didn't even think to figure out the surface area. Thanks, Enrico411!
