COUGAR Aqua 280 Reviews

Hi-Performance Hi-quality

Top level cooling and affordable price. This COUGAR product has been used every day for a year and a half, and still functions like new. The fans are quiet yet powerful. AQUA 280 RGB Liquid CPU Cooler out performs ROG ryjulin 360 with a copper radiator ($380cnd) in several reviews online. Achieving higher benchmarks due to higher air pressure fans, higher cfm air flow and a shorter/wider radiator. I'm a Red Seal Journeyman Body Repair Technician. I know fans and radiators very well. I highly recommend this product.

Garbage!

Usually the life time for a liquid cooler is around 3-5 years. It has been 1 year yet and the pump is already failing. Cpu temp is over 60 even while just looking around on Windows. Open a web browser or run a few things, temp goes over 70-75 and the fans are loud asf. So I would say, spend maybe $10-30 bucks more but get a well known brand instead of this junk.
