The Iceberg Thermal IceFLOE Oasis 360mm AIO Cooler Review: Affordable & Effective Cooling

Iceberg Thermal Inc. One of the newer players in the PC cooling market. The company was self-founded in 2019 by an experienced team of designers and engineers, aiming to provide a wide range of PC cooling products to industrial and commercial customers alike. They currently only have a handful of retail products available, most of which are CPU air coolers, but they just launched their first liquid cooler product, the IceFLOE Oasis series.

In today's review, we're taking a look at the IceFLOE Oasis 360mm AIO (All-in-One) CPU Cooler, the larger of the two liquid coolers the company recently released. The IceFLOE Oasis CPU Cooler targets the high-performance PC cooling market with a sub-$100 price point, aiming to deliver the performance needed to effectively cool power-hungry processors without draining the wallet in the process. . This cooler has a 360mm radiator for ample heat dissipation area, as well as housing for three high airflow 120mm fans. IceFLOE Oasis supports a wide range of Intel and AMD sockets, making it compatible with a wide spectrum of CPUs. Additionally, it offers advanced RGB lighting, allowing users to customize the aesthetics of their cooling system.

Packaging and bundles

We received the IceFLOE OASIS 360 AIO CPU Cooler in a black cardboard box with an oversaturated image of the cooler covering most of its front, the designer touting its ARGB Gen 2 compliance. In an effort to highlight Inside the packaging, the cooler is encased in custom-designed cardboard inserts, carefully crafted to protect it during shipping and handling, thus guaranteeing its arrival in flawless condition. Available.

The items bundled with the IceFLOE OASIS 360 are the minimum required for installing a cooler on the CPU. In addition to the mounting hardware, there's also a 3-in-1 4-pin connector for radiator fans, a 4-pin for Molex connector if one wants to plug a pump or fan directly into the PSU, and a Syringe. Premium thermal material. We should note that there is no ARGB controller included, meaning that RGB lighting requires a compatible motherboard or third-party controller to work.

Iceberg Thermal IceFLOE OASIS 360 mm AIO Liquid Cooler

At first glance, the Iceberg Thermal IceFLOE Oasis 360mm AIO CPU Cooler offers a design that conforms to the traditional layout of modern 360 mm AIO coolers on the market. This cooler retains the typical AIO structure, consisting of a large radiator, two hoses, and an integrated pump block assembly. The block includes an efficiently designed liquid pump with a copper CPU contact plate (or cold plate), the most common AIO cooler block setup. Iceberg Thermal chooses to enclose the durable rubber hoses in a braided sleeve for better protection, sacrificing some flexibility for added durability.

Iceberg Thermal IceFLOE OASIS 360 mm AIO features a radiator that is 27 mm thick, the most common thickness of an AIO cooler radiator, ensuring compatibility with any case designed to hold a 360 mm radiator. . The radiator design follows a typical dual-pass crossflow configuration, with small fins connected to thin, long tubes. There is a tap on the radiator, presumably for maintenance or refilling, yet a sticker warns that removing it will void the warranty. The company logo is laser etched on the side of the radiator.

The main block of the Iceberg Thermal IceFLOE Oasis 360mm AIO cooler features a design focused on aesthetic integration. Mainly made of durable plastic, with a top cover that can be adjusted up to 90° for perfect alignment of the decorative logo with the motherboard. The logo is not visible until the ARGB connector receives a signal. The unit is fitted with 90° connectors to easily connect the two hoses, and has two cables: one is a 4-pin connector for power, and the other supports RGB lighting. RGB functionality offers versatility, allowing connection to the supplied controller or any compatible RGB system for custom lighting effects.

Below the main block assembly of the Iceberg Thermal IceFLOE Oasis 360mm AIO cooler, a squirrel-shaped contact plate is affixed to the plastic body with eight screws. The surface of the plate, while not mirror polished, is smooth and smooth enough for efficient thermal transfer. Cooler does not come pre-applied with thermal paste. Instead, a syringe of thermal compound is included for use during installation. The dimensions of the cold plate are approximately 56×56 mm, ensuring that it covers all the CPU dies it is compatible with.

Iceberg Thermal supplies three 120mm fans rebranded under their own logo. All three fans are high airflow low pressure designs, with seven narrow blades. Their operational range is very wide, ranging from 200 to 2200 RPM, which gives the IceFLOE OASIS 360 cooler a lot of versatility. It features a Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) engine, which strikes a balance between high reliability and quiet operation. Their cables allow both the ARGB and power connectors to be connected in parallel (daisy chain) but they are standard lengths and can easily create a mess if not installed carefully.

In designing the RGB lighting for the IceFLOE Oasis 360mm AIO cooler, Iceberg Thermal adheres to traditional lighting schemes, opting for a semi-transparent fan hub with internal LED placement for the fan and a backlit logo on the main block. . The light provided is bright and fairly uniform, although the intensity decreases towards the edges of the blade. Dimming the lights clearly shows the spacing between the LEDs, as the LEDs are powerful but not numerous. While this lighting approach may not set new standards in current RGB trends, it is sufficient for the majority of users, with the exception of those with very specific demands for the aesthetics of their system.
