Liqtech 240 @ Enermax – Long-Term Test Result

Liqtech 240 from Enermax #Enermax (EOL)

long-term results

 

I wasn´t sure about AIO-Watercooling Systems so i bought me a Liqtech 240 for the smaller Workstation. (FX8350) Price was around 100€ .

The installation wasn´t so bad, but the hose couplings broke by installation after 5 minutes. The hose was to stiff and inside the hose was a tiny plug that make´s sure that no water will leak out of it.  I wrote an email to the RMA here in Hamburg and after multiple minutes i got the answer.  So i send it to the RMA  and 3-4 days later i got a new one.

The MTBF says around 50K hours on the HW. Well not sure but true. Iám missing 5K hours.  I was wondering about the heat the last day´s and you know the AMD FX Series is a TPD Monster with 125W. The Fan´s gone crazy around 2500 RPM and the heat was rising up to emergency shutdown.  OK ?!

The big problem on almost all AIO Watercooling Systems is that you can´t have a look inside the pump or the level of fluid.

The pump is dead beef….. take a look yourself

Yeahhh rusti water……….

Take a spoon and take a nip.

Well the „water“ smells like somebody  need a quick pee

 

Well the Radiator and the fan´s are still OK, but the pump is dead.

Results :  Quick installation

                  Very bad hose connectors

                  Missing a fluid windows to check the level of fluid

                 Missing a pump status or fluid flow window

                 RMA is quick (for Germany) no problems at all

                 Bad fluid is used and too much dirt cause of „wrong“ fluid or bad mixture

                 Fan´s are very good

                 Good cooling effect almost 30°C ~ Summer max 40°C on  medium/heavy usage

                 Fittings no leak so far

                 Solid pump casing

 

If Enermax fix the fluid and the status of the pump 10/10 point´s

@ Enermax send a Sample for the next run 🙂
