It’s always so interesting when a company starts up or enters a new product category and we didn’t know what to expect when we knew we were reviewing the NAIA 240. Mostly low expectations for fit, finish, and performance. Typically we see a lot of middle of the road or low-end product when it’s a company’s first foray into something new. We were wrong. Very. The NAIA 240 excels in every category especially performance. Installing the unit was refreshingly simple, certainly so if you set aside the potentially problematic job of dealing with dye and coolant. The simple two bolt bracket system let’s a single installer do a much better job of maintaining good contact between the pump and CPU than other systems. The parts included were all of the highest quality as were the materials used in the cooler. Finally any misgivings you might have during installation are easily forgotten as the NAIA 240 breezes through thermal tests. Indeed this AiO is on par or better than most custom watercooling loops, bravo Reeven. If that wasn’t enough the unit is only $112 on Amazon.com a price far lower than we would have expected.
The only thing that we don’t really like about the NAIA 240 is the use of FEP ribbed tubing. It’s very basic and really degrades the overall feel of a build. It’s also worth noting that there is no software included. This is easy to overlook given how well it performs but it really is nearly standard to have software to monitor and adjust your cooler’s settings.
