Enermax Liqmax II 240 AIO Water Cooling Review

Couple of days ago we’ve reviewed Enermax Revolution SFX PSU which was great. Now is time on something else under the same logo – the Liqmax II 240 AIO water cooling. There are many AIO water cooling solutions on the market so I’m curious what Enermax brings to the table.

Reviewed AIO cooler is designed for up to 350W TDP. It’s much more heat than any processor in mass production is generating. We will test it on the Intel Kaby Lake platform with the i7 7700K processor.

Let’s check how much to offer has Enermax Liqmax II 240 AIO cooler.

 

The Enermax Liqmax II is the advanced version of the successful Liqmax liquid coolers line. The engineers from Enermax have improved the performance of the cooler and the operating noise is further reduced (Liqmax II 120 TDP 320W+ and Liqmax II 240 TDP 350W+) . This is mainly due to the optimized double-Batwing blade geometry and the smooth-running pump. With the Adjustable Peak Speed (APS) feature, the speed range of the fans can be selected and limited by an easily accessible switch on the side. There are three modes available: Silent (600-1,200 1 / min), Performance (600-1,700 1 / min), and Overclock (600-2,200 1 / min). The Liqmax II has been equipped with high-quality polyamide tubes, which, due to their flexibility, grant an easy installation. The liquid cooler is available in 120mm and 240mm radiator formats and has a mounting system for Intel® and AMD® processors including the current Intel® Haswell™- , Skylake™- and Kaby Lake™ -generations.

 

Cooling & Design

  • Maintenance-free Cooling System
    All-in-One liquid CPU cooler with pre-filled coolant offers best usability and maximum cooling performance for powerful PC systems with multi-core CPUs.
  • Shunt-Channel Technology
    Patented cold plate design for maximum cooling performance. The shunt inside the micro fin structure minimizes the “Boundary Layer” effect, eliminates hot spots much quicker and ensures a perfect heat dissipation.
  • Stylish Water Block
    Low operating noise and efficient cooling performance thanks to long-lasting ceramic bearing pump. The white LED logo displays the operating mode.
  • Double-length Radiator*
    Higher heat exchange capacity thanks to double-length 240mm radiator. First choice for systems with overclocked CPU.
    * only ELC-LMR240-BS

 

Fans

  • Double Batwing Fans
    The new and innovative development of the popular Batwing blade design. Thanks to the advanced shape of the fan blades, the Double Batwing fans achieve an exceptional high air flow rate to enhance the cooling performance while reducing the noise generation.
  • Adjustable Peak Speed Function & Automatic PWM Control
    Easy fan speed customisation according to the system requirements. With a small switch at the frame side, the peak speed can be changed in three steps. The fan therefore offers three various RPM ranges: Silent Mode / Performance Mode / Overclock Mode. Within the selected mode, the fan is controlled automatically via PWM.
  • Effective Fan Decoupling
    The fan is equipped with rubber pads to reduce the vibration and noise generation.

 

Comfort & Compatibility

  • Easy & Universal Mounting System
    Quick & user-friendly CPU cooler mounting supports all Intel and AMD CPU: Intel® LGA 775, 115x, 1366, 2011(-3) Square ILM, 2066 and AMD® FM1, FM2(+), AM2(+), AM3(+), AM4.
  • AM4 Compatibility
    The Liqmax II 120 includes the AM4 mounting system starting from serial number S/N 1704027xxxx, the Liqmax II 240 starting from S/N 1706019xxxx and S/N 1706057xxxx. For older models an AM4 retention kit can be ordered via online form.
  • Flexible & Long-lasting Tubes
    High-quality tubes made of Polyamide guarantee a non-permeable and long-lasting operation combined with great flexibility.
  • High Conductive Thermal Grease
    Tube with Dow-Corning® thermal grease (TC-5121) for best thermal conduction between CPU and Water Block.
