Highly efficient liquid cooling & outstanding durability
Thanks to the application of new patented technology, every drop of coolant within the optimized self-governed circulation channel will be fully used and take the heat away in a most efficient way. Meanwhile, with the adoption of anti-explosion rubber, which also features anti-corrosion, crush resistance and thermo stability, the safety and stability of the self-governed circulation channel will be greatly guaranteed.
Excellent performance/noise ratio & easy installation
By equipping unique silent TF 120 double-blade fan with anti-shock pad, CAPTAIN EX Series can not only offer a higher air pressure for radiator to take the heat away efficiently, but also maintain an extremely low noise environment as de-vibration rubber will absorb most operating noise. The advanced detachable blade design and built-in 3-proof functions (Dustproof, Waterproof, Oil-leakage proof) of TF120 fan will satisfy your DIY enthusiasm to build a unique rig.
