Final Words & Conclusion

The reviewed Enermax Liqmaxflo 360 ARGB cooler performed great. It handled the AMD Ryzen 9 7900X (in place of Ryzen 7 3700X) and Intel Core i9 13900K without a sweat. Enermax Liqmaxflo 360 ARGB is sold at an MSRP of 129.99 USD, which is reasonable for an aRGB AIO with a 38 mm thick radiator offering very good performance (it’s quite comparable to the Arctic Liquid Freezer III). The maximum rpm (1800) noise is a bit too much, but you can set your fan curve to make it more reasonable. There are three overall size variants (as there are also 240 and 4200 variants) and the non-RGB variants. There’s no other color variant than the black one.

Aesthetics, Design & Installation

Starting with the aesthetics, the Enermax Liqmaxflo 360 ARGB looks fine (but not the prettiest in the already checked bunch). The installation process for AMD is relatively easy. As for the Intel LGA 1700 (and potentially 1851), it’s also straightforward.
The unit is factory-filled with coolant in a closed loop, so the whole installation process should take 5-15 minutes for the AMD/Intel.
The quality tubes bend well and can be adjusted in many ways to avoid compatibility issues. The provided fans have RGB.  


The Verdict

The Enermax Liqmaxflo 360 is an attractive and affordable solution; the MSRP is 129.99 USD. You get RGB functionality and a VRM fan (which should help the VRM and the RAM modules). As the radiator is 360 mm long and thick for as much as 38 mm – you need to check if your chassis will accommodate it and in which location. The Liqmaxflo 360 pump design is quite original, but not as much. For example, it was used in the Arctic Liquid Freezer II. The performance is one of the better ones that we’ve checked. The Enermax fans are good overall but quite loud at maximum rpm (1800) still – in typical usage, it’s a very quiet AIO. The tubing is quite flexible. The fans are daisy-chained. There’s a 100 ml coolant for the refill and a 5-year warranty, so it’s better than the standard one. So, summing it up – you get a very good performance and a more-than-acceptable noise (if not pushed to the max for the fans/pump). Putting everything together, we can grant this product a “Silver” award for the whole package (especially for the performance/noise ratio). The price is attractive, as 129.99 USD MSRP is a good offer.
