The All in One Liquid Cooling kit market is getting saturated fast, mostly these kits have Asetek as the ODM as they apparently patented maybe even a little too much. We test and review the all new Enermax Liqtech 120X and 240 Liquid coolers. These liquid cooling kits are pre-fitted and ready to install straight out of the box. Armed with great looks and an attractive price, can they keep up with similar Asetek and competing products? Let's find out!
The LiqTech series liquid coolers have a performance waterblock that is machined out of a single block of copper with Micro Channels that maximize heat dissipation. The integrated pump / waterblock combo assists in saving valuable space around the CPU socket while providing performance and reliability that is similar to air-based CPU coolers. Operating between 600 and 2500RPM, the included 120mm PWM fans ensure that there will be plenty of options for balancing performance versus noise levels. In fact the fans even have RPM control onboard with the help of a small micro-switch, yeah that would be a fan controller inside a fan.
The LiqTech series are self-contained units and don't require that much setup installation and usage wise. The pump and radiator ship pressure tested, pre-filled, and sealed directly from the factory to provide maintenance-free operation for years. This ease of use extends to its support of the latest Intel and AMD sockets; including Intel LGA 2011 /1155/1156 and AMD FM2 sockets. In today's review we'll be examining the LiqTech 120X (120mm radiator with two fans in a push pull)n then the 240 will be tested as well. The last one is equipped with two 120mm fans and a 240mm radiator and is one of the more easy to install products we have tested to date. However -as stated- the market is fierce and competitive, will the Enermax be able to hold ground against the new grub from CoolerMaster, NZXT and Corsair?
Well, let's find out shall we ?
