One advantage is the 200 US dollar all-in-one water cooling at the end nevertheless: the silent 360 mm radiator despite the three 120 mm fans and the pump measured at 1,800 rpm is the quietest

Seems that even with the full cover block it is not going to blow your mind performance wise.

Interesting article, thanks for posting it. (y)
But if their TIM print is from test seating they used way too much TIM. TIM is supposed to be used to fill voids where there is not metal to metal contact between CPU IHS and cooler base, not to be a solid layer of TIM between them.
Copper is rated . . . . . . 400 W/m k,
Aluminum is rated . . . . . 200 W/m k
Liquid Ultra TIM is rated . 38.4 W/m k
Normal TIM is rated . . . 3-12 W/m k
