Liqtech 240 from Enermax #Enermax (EOL)
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 🙂
