I like this sleek, brushed aluminium design. Although those metal things around the tubes, why does manufacturers include those on the tubes? ...

The coil is supposed to prevent kinking of the hose. Looks ugly as hell though, and personally I've been water cooling for a few years now and never had an issue with kinked hose.

Yeah, I can understand your point. Although, your other point as well. Only Fractal used it on their Kelvin coolers. No other AIO company has, as far as I'm aware.

Like I don't think Corsair wouldn't use it if it didn't need to. So obviously it's not really needed, hence me wondering why they included it really?...

Most likely to protect themselves from the 1% of idiots who will buy this and kink the hose by being stupid.

Cooler Master have often used the ugly anti-kinking coils.

I'm really tempted to run this in the front of a Corsair 460X.

Liking the brushed pump design! Disliking the brand name (in general) stamped on the pump and the peculiar coils. I think I like the celcius better overall (of which I only dislike the logo not being a white LED).

Strange that they would launch a new cooler without any RGB bling. But that brushed aluminium looks very sleek indeed.

Not strange, but genius. This is the kind of design most mature audiences and consumers want.

Why?... It's not like you can't turn off the LED's on most hardware today anyway.
Turn off the LED's and you'd get basically the same "mature" design.
