Enermax, famous for its quality PSU and recently, PC cases and Fans and Aicoolers, have been also making quite a push in the All-in-One water cooling market and some of its aircoolings have been quite impressive. Today, we are looking at the latest Enermax Liqtech series AIO water cooler which stands out with its impressive manufacturing quality and exceptional design. We will certainly try to find out if it has what it takes to compete in the quite crowded AIO water cooling market.

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.


As you can see from the picture manufacturing quality of the Liqtech 240 is impressive. Enermax decided to go for high quality materials, making the Liqtech 240 look and feel much better than their former ELC series. It packs a 273 x 27 mm radiator made from aluminium and apart from that, there is a GPU block with integrated pump, that comes with polished cooper base plate. Furthermore there is a high-quality ceramic bearing pump which should be inaudible. To be precise the dimensions of the Liqtech 240 are 273mm x 120mm x 27mm (WxHxD). Enermax has also decided to use the new, and quite good looking, design for the pump/base part. The fans also come with a new design that works quite well with the rest of the Liqtech 240 AIO cooler. Enermax decided to pair the Liqtech 240 with two 120x25mm LT120HP fans, which are suitable with the other high-quality components used.

The packaging is quite standard for an all-in-one water cooling syste as you get the AIO unit, two fans, manual and the mounting kit. Enermax bundles the Liqtech 240 with two mounting kits, one for AMD and one for Intel-based systems, as well as a backplate which is compatible with both AMD and Intel sockets. Enermax also threw in a Y-split fan cable and some Dow Corning TC-5121 thermal compound in a small tube, making the installation quite a breeze even for an average computer user.

Enermax has a two year warranty backing the Liqtech 240 AIO water cooler.
