PRODUCT COMPOSITION, PICTORIAL & WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)
The radiator is constructed of all aluminum and has a blue LED 120mm fan attached to it. The fan speed is controlled by the attached rheostat that is mounted on the included PCI slot bracket. The coolant reservoir is also contained within this unit. It gets power from a three pin power connector that plugs into the CPU fan connector on the motherboard.
Coolant can be refilled by removing the screw in the upper left corner and using the included injector to add more to the reservoir. The manual has a few pages with diagrams showing how to do this, and also states that no coolant should be added for six months.
At the end of the 3/8” tubes running from the radiator are the waterblock and pump. The waterblock is constructed of all copper and the base has a smooth mirror finish to make good contact with the CPU.
Attached to the top of the waterblock is a tiny pump. Despite the small size, Cooler Master claims it moves 200 liters of coolant per hour at 21 dBA. It gets power from its own three pin power connector.
