Zero-Infinity Free-Flow+ Review

Up Close: Assembled
The Free Flow+ comes packaged with 3x120mm fans, making for quite a formidable and impressive structure once assembled. The fans are aligned in a linear pattern as you might imagine, giving a flow of air from the front to the rear of the unit (hence the name free flow).
When assembled the whole unit is 155mm long from front fan to rear fan, which might give some rear case fan clearance issues in smaller cases, and certainly causes clearance issues for those with tall heat sinks on their RAM.
The choice of Purple bladed fans is something of an unusual design direction. I guess it stands out from the crowd, but if you're looking to colour theme your build you're going to be hard pushed to find purple products from other manufacturers, but then I guess that's part of the marketing plan.
I have to be honest in that the Free Flow+ doesn't exactly ooze feelings of quality. The towers of the cooler itself weren't actually perpendicular to each other, necessitating quite a bit of leverage to insert the central fan, and the fans themselves did feel a little on the chap and flimsy side, with little effort made to disguise the injection moulding points. That said, once assembled you can't help be impressed by the scale and purpleness of the cooler (Purpleness is a real word, honest)
