Xigmatek Scylla 240 AIO CPU Cooler Review: Page 4 of 6

Here’s the Xigmatek Scylla 240 without the fans installed. Pretty much like a typical 240 AIO cooler except for the exceptionally thin water block module since the pump isn’t integrated on it. The tubing on the Scylla 240 is also longer than usual at 300mm which may help or may not help on your build but certainly a plus for larger build giving you the option to mount the cooler at the front of the chassis with ease.
The pump is integrated on the AIO’s radiator and it isn’t at the end of it but in the middle. This is the first time I’ve seen such pump integration which is very interesting. This keep the radiator size at a minimum compared to other radiator-pump modules which tends to be longer if its integrated in the end of the radiator.
I did notice there’s a refilling hole in the radiator so even if it is maintenance-free, users can add coolant if desired particularly after a few years of service.
Now here’s the Xigmatek Scylla with the 120mm fans mounted on the radiator. Even with the pump on the radiator, the pump doesn’t become an obstacle in both sides of the radiator.
The mounting brackets on the water block simply slides on and off. It locks itself in place and can be swapped in a jiffy.
