Liqtech: Effective Cooling for Multi-Core Processors
High-performance CPUs still generate more heat than usual processors for office workstations. If you overclock the CPU in order to boost the performance, you will definitely need a powerful cooler. Apart from high-end air coolers with bulky heat sinks, compact all-in-one water cooling systems have become increasingly popular during the past years. Compared to air-cooled solutions, they offer a higher performance capability and have the ability to eliminate hot spots more effectively and much quicker.
Shunt-Channel Cold Plate & Innovative Radiator Structure
With the Liqtech series, Enermax presents already the second generation of its liquid cooling product range. In comparison with the previous ELC models, the manufacturer has completely redesigned the coolers. The massive water block is made from aluminium and refines not only the appearance of the cooler, but also improves the heat dissipation. The quality pump inside the water block works silently and is based on a durable ceramic bearing. On the other hand, the design of the cold plate remains unchanged: Enermax relies on the patented "Shunt Channel Technology" which significantly increases the water flow rate and speed. A channel breaks through the micro-fin structure and prevents the formation of the so-called Boundary Layer, a physical phenomenon that obstructs the water flow. Apart from that, the cooling specialist introduces a new radiator construction. The fins are soldered to the pipes, which creates a larger, seamless contact area and densifies the radiator structure for a more efficient heat transfer.
The New Twister Pressure Fans with APS Function
Liqtech comes with two Twister bearing fans with 100,000 hours MTBF. For the first time, Enermax applies the new Twister Pressure fans that have been particularly designed for CPU coolers and radiators. The special shape of the blades allows for a high static pressure which is essential to ensure an efficient and low noise cooling. Due to the quality and sturdy materials, the fans are also resistant against vibrations - even at high speed. Like the previously launched Cluster Advance and Everest Advance, the Twister Pressure fans are equipped with the "Adjustable Peak Speed (APS)" function. The RPM range can be customized in three steps according to the system requirements: Silent Mode (600 - 1,300 RPM), Performance Mode (600 - 2,000 RPM) and Overclock Mode (600 - 2,500 RPM). The maximum speed can be limited with a small switch at the fan hub. Within the selected mode, the speed is controlled automatically via pulse-width modulation (PWM).
Liqtech supports all current Intel® and AMD® platforms. The cooler comes in two different sizes with extra thick 120mm radiator (Liqtech 120X) or 240mm dual radiator (Liqtech 240). Liqtech 120X is now available on sale, while the 240mm model will be launched until the end of the year. MSRP incl. VAT: £79.90 Euro for the Liqtech 120X (ELC-LT120X-HP) and £109.90 Euro for the Liqtech 240 (ELC-LT240-HP).
