Prior to this review, I had never heard of Larkooler. However, having now used and reviewed one of their watercooling systems, I can see that they should probably become popular soon enough. Overall, Larkooler still have a few steps to go before they can take over the market, but they are definitely heading in the right direction.
The watercooling kit I reviewed today (KU3-241) can be bought for less than £200 if you shop around online, and at this price, it is quite an attractive entry into the watercooling world. It performs well at this price, given that it is a “DIY” kit, and comes complete with everything you need, and despite it only beating the Noctua under load by a few degrees it is certainly a good entry into the market and if this kit is anything to go by, we will be seeing a lot more of Larkooler in the future!
- Affordable entry into the water-cooled world
- High build quality
- Easy to follow instructions
- Good performance
- Reasonably quiet
- Pump could be more powerful
- Waterblock does not (at time of reviewing) support newer 1155 chipset
Reality Check: Whilst this kits performance won’t blow you away, it is definitely a great and affordable way to get into the world of watercooling.
