Thermaltake Floe Riing RGB liquid coolers pump up the colors

Whatever opinion one may have about Thermaltake's gear, one must admire the company's agility in adapting its product lines to suit the fickle tastes of gamers and syle-obsessed PC enthusiasts. The company's latest display of adaptability is the Floe Riing RGB series of all-in-one liquid coolers, available with 240-mm, 280-mm, and 360-mm radiators. Thermaltake says these are the first AIO liquid coolers on the market with RGB LEDs embedded in the pump block and the radiator fans.

The water block assembly has a copper baseplate and sparkles with light cast by six individually-addressable RGB LEDs. Coolant flows through reinforced sleeved tubing to a high-efficiency radiator in the buyer's choice of three previously-mentioned jumbo sizes. The radiator is topped off with two or three of Thermaltake's Riing Plus RGB fans, each containing 12 individually-addressable color-changing diodes. The box also contains a RGB LED controller that can lord over up to five devices. Buyers can daisy-chain as many as 16 of those control boxes.

Users can control the light show using Thermaltake's Riing Plus RGB Windows software. Lovers of fruit-flavored computers can still get their RGB on using the companion Riing Plus RGB app for Android and iOS devices. The software tools can coordinate the lights, alter fan speeds, and monitor coolant temperature. The usual array of lighting effects is available, as are modes that react to music and temperature status.

The Floe Riing RGB coolers are compatible with every modern Intel socket since LGA 1366, including the spanking-new LGA 2066. On the AMD side, all of the AMx and FMx sockets are on the compatibility list, except the Atom-class AM1. Thermaltake doesn't say if the Floe Riing RGB coolers will work with Ryzen Threadripper, but since the cooler looks like an Asetek CLC-based product, there's a chance it'll fit with the retention bracket included inside Threadripper's bulky retail box.

Newegg has product pages up for all three of Thermaltake's Floe Riing RGB AIO coolers, though they're currently showing as out of stock. The 240-mm model is listed for $160, the 280-mm unit costs $170, and the three-fan 360-mm kit riings in (heh) at $200.

    [quote<][i<]Lovers of fruit-flavored computers can still get their RGB on[/i<] ... using the companion Riing Plus RGB app for Android and iOS devices.[/quote<] (Italics & ellipsis added) My 1st read on that 3rd paragraph (quoted above) really confounded me, & had me thinking that ThermalTake was offering this RGB CLC for "Fruit-Flavored computers" (some variety of Mac) rather than simply making reference to the App, which is clearly an iOS & Android offering. Unless of course Sir Jony is driving a thoroughly original & astonishingly innovative RGB integration on the next round of iPhone/iPad designs, and will no doubt display prominently within a resurrected RGB-back-lit Apple logo. And if that's the direction Apple is going, I definitely DON'T want to see Phil Schiller's RGB product intro with him strutting across the stage proclaiming [i<]"Can't innovate anymore, my ass!"[/i<] (Because these things are just so down-right butt-ugly the LAST thing we need to see are Schiller's RGButtocks!)

    Thermaltake’s logo (logos? there are two different ones in this image…) is ugly even among the other PC parts manufactures. An accomplishment not to be understated.

    They are all about looks these days, but everything that most manufactures put out looks terrible, outside of a few rare examples (EK, Corsair, NXZT and EVGA on some of their stuff…). RBG isn’t a miracle that magically makes stuff look better. You actually have to put some effort in making the outlines and overall product design pleasing to look at.

    Just look at that atrocious image… all the parts looks bad per se, and together their form a mess of forms and colors where nothing matches.

    blah blah RGB millenials etc

    This seem very, very similar to the Water 3.0 RGB AIO. Am I correct in thinking the only differences are software control and the RGB water block? Does this replace the Water 3.0 entirely?

    Yeah, but without the cooler you’d just have the RGB LEDs–and a disco inferno!

      I don’t know why they don’t just set the LEDs to the “cool white” range of 6000K+ and let the LEDs do the cooling!

      Wassamatta? Constant bombardment with new and ever flashier RGB PC peripherals getting hard to thermaltake?

        “shrug” He doesn’t think LEDs are a bright idea.
