Today we have the pleasure to check out Enermax's Liqtech 240 compact liquid cooling system, which should be perfectly suitable for powerful gaming PCs or rigs that require great cooling with low temperatures. The special 240mm radiator on the Liqtech 240 is slightly thicker than a normal 120mm radiator, which should help improving performance while kink-resistant tubing allows for routing in smaller cases and tighter spaces. Overall this cooler is very well made and it looks nice and clean. The most unique feature about it is probably its color, as it features matte black with red accents which is something we have not seen with this type of cooler before. The build quality is also on a really high level. The bundle includes two 120mm PWM fans and on the back of each fan you will find a really nice feature, a little switch that lets you choose the maximum rotation speeds of the rotor. The settings you can choose from are: silent mode 600 to 1300 rpm, performance mode 600 to 2000 rpm or overclock mode 600 to 2500 rpm. Mounting system supports most, if not all, recent Intel and AMD socket CPUs.
The Liqtech 240 is actually Enermax's new liquid cooler which is not based on Aseteks OEM design. In fact this all-in-one cooler is made by AVC like the previous ELC series from Enermax.
