Enermax LIQMAX III 360 White ARGB CPU Liquid Cooler Review

Over the past year, we’ve seen a lot of users going for a white-themed PC build, and this trend is growing. So when Enermax sent us the latest LIQMAX III 360 cooler in the white version, I have to say I’m really pleased to see the white edition of this cooler, that’s because you don’t see a lot manufacturers releasing white version of their cooling products. 

The LIQMAX III 240 cooler already received our recommendation, so we only count on something better from the model with a 360mm radiator. This is also the recommended size for top series processors. Since recently was a premiere of the Intel Rocket Lake series, then for tests, we will use i7-11700K CPU.

As usual, some technical data and features at first, while later we will focus on the performance and additional tests.

The LIQMAX III ARGB All-in-One CPU liquid cooler with RGB lighting. The water block with its acrylic look is equipped with the Aurabelt™ design, which provides brilliant lighting effects. LIQMAX III ARGB supports addressable RGB synchronization with motherboards that have 4-pin addressable (5V/Data/-/GND). Thanks to ENERMAX’s patented Dual-Chamber Design, Central Coolant Inlet (CCI) and Shunt-Channel Technology (SCT) the cooler achieves faster heat transfer and extended lifetime. The RGB fans with dual-convex blades are optimized for radiators and generate high static pressure to drive heat out of the cooling fins. The LIQMAX III ARGB is an excellent cooler for gaming cases that do not want to miss RGB lighting.




The LIQMAX III ARGB is an All-in-One CPU liquid cooler with a pre-filled coolant. This makes a water cooler as simple as a regular air cooler. Easy installation and no maintenance. The fully sealed design ensures the lowest evaporation of liquid and a long product lifetime.


Dual-Chamber Water Block

The patented Dual-Chamber Design isolates the pump from the heated coolant, extending the life of the cooler.
The cold coolant enters the first chamber with the pump inside and is then forced through the cold plate, absorbing heat. The heated coolant is collected in the second chamber and then transported to the radiator for cooling.


Central Coolant Inlet (CCI) Design

The Central Coolant Inlet (CCI) injects coolant in the middle area above the CPU and distributes it evenly across the cold plate using the patented Shunt Channel Technology (SCT). The result is a shorter coolant flow path and faster heat transfer.


Aurabelt™ Water Block

The Aurabelt™ water block of LIQMAX III ARGB is equipped with addressable RGB LEDs. For stand-alone operation, the water block displays the rainbow RGB lighting effect.

RGB Sync

Synchronizable RGB lighting via addressable RGB headers of motherboards from Asus, Asrock, MSI, and Gigabyte. Programmable lighting effects via motherboards software. Razer Chroma support with compatible motherboards of Asrock and MSI.

Note: Addressable RGB LEDs run on 5V, do not connect them to a non-addressable 4 pin header with 12V.


RGB Control Box

The integrated RGB control box offers a quick setup of 10 pre-set lighting effects without the need for an RGB motherboard or additional software.


The premium woven tubings are made of flexible and long-lasting polyamide rubber with multiple layers ensuring zero permeability and long-lasting operation. The tubes offer an easy system installation thanks to a length of 400mm. For maximum safety, the connections to the fittings are sealed with extra strong glue.




The radiator offers a large cooling surface with high heat exchange capacity thanks to the fine channels and thin aluminum fins. LIQMAX III ARGB is available with a 240mm radiator with 330W TDP and a 360mm radiator with 360W TDP cooling capacity.



Quick & user-friendly universal mounting system supporting Intel® and AMD® sockets (excluding TR4/SP3 socket). The pressure adjustment spring system and high conductive Dow-Corning® thermal grease ensure perfect contact with the CPUs heat spreader.
LIQMAX III ARGB is compatible with 120mm fan mountings. Please ensure your case offers enough space to install the radiator.
