Summary

Upon first seeing the CPU-370, we were suitably impressed with the aesthetics, as it’s very attractive and continues the sleek tradition we saw in the CPU-360. In fact, the two blocks are nearly identical, so we can’t fault Koolance for keeping a winning formula.

We have to say that hard work does pay off, at least with the CPU-370 block. Koolance’s engineers managed to achieve both low flow restriction and excellent thermal performance for their new flagship CPU block. The results might show a small margin gained but a 2°C improvement from the top performers are saying a lot for a water block.

In terms of craftsmanship and durability, we have nothing really negative say this about new CPU-370 block. The only niggle we noticed is that it’s possible to overtighten the thumbnuts, so take a bit of care to make sure you do them equally. Other than that, we can’t find any sort of issue.

In terms of performance, the Koolance CPU-370 is killer, and is the best we’ve seen to date in our testing.

Coming with a price tag of about $85 USD, that’s very reasonable for a block made of solid brass and nickel plating, comes with Intel and AMD retention designs, and top performance results.

Pros:

  • Excellent quality
  • Top pPerformance
  • Heavy duty hold-down bracket
  • Complete Intel & AMD mount mechanisms
  • Thermal paste, copper & aluminum foil sensor stickers are included

Cons:

  • Fittings not included
  • Retention mechanism is a little hard for inexperience users

The Pure Point: The Koolance CPU-370 is an outstanding water block, with sleek aesthetics and killer performance.
