LIQMAX 120S

1. With SCT design, the cold plate can eliminate the "Boundary Layer" to increase coolant flow momentum and accelerate heat transfer performance.

2. When any CPU core is in over clock mode and generates hot spot, SCT design creates the redistribution and remix of coolant flow among individual channels to effectively remove heat surge on the CPU in a extremely timely and efficient manner.

LIQMAX 120S Patented APS PWM Control

LIQMAX 120S

Three-Cooling Modes:

*Silent mode: 600 - 1300RPM
*Performance mode: 600 - 2000RPM
*OverClock mode: 600 - 2500RPM


Users can choose the most suitable mode depending on the system application without pushing fan speeds up to the limit. Just gently slide the small switch at the fan hub, and an easy adjustment can be made to suit different cooling performance requirements.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Performance

Pros: I have noticed a measurable decrease in the CPU operating temperature at idle and as well as under heavy load. It took a few weeks for the thermal paste to properly set, but once it did, my processor is nice and cool.

Cons: While not unique to this item, and would be like any other liquid cooler, installation was somewhat difficult. I highly recommend an extra set of hands to assist with guiding the cooler onto the processor.

1 out of 5 eggs***DO NOT BUY THIS***

Pros: Absolutely NONE.

Cons: I received this 'product' on October 17th, and I sincerely hope this review can help you choose a better liquid cooling system.

---Liquid pump stopped working after 1 month
My CPU temp suddenly raised to 80 Celsius one day, I opened my computer, the liquid pump is extremely hot and the fan is not dissipating any heat. This indicate the heat is not transferred to the environment. And I just got this thing a month ago. FYI, my computer has a solid build, there is hardly any chance for this 'liquid cooling system' to blame others.

---Do not expect RMA
I bought this while manufacture was providing a rebate. I mailed the PSN tag to them and now they refuse to RMA because I cannot provide a picture of PSN tag. Now I learned my lesson: For some manufactures, rebate is an effective way to clean their defective inventory without worrying RMA. Thanks ENERMAX.

---Extremely difficult to install
This is not as important compare to the completely failure of its performance, but this is seriously the hardest liquid cooling (if it is qualified to be called such) I have ever installed. The bracket is so stupidly designed, I considered myself an experienced and educated individual, but this thing is surely a challenge that worth nothing. I would say Cosair H55 or Cooler Master products are much easier to install.

If you want to choose this piece of {nicesunflowerseed}, I suggest you stick to the stock air cooling fan.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Quick installation! After tweaking around for a bit it is at what I currently think is optimal performance. When purchasing this I did not expect it to drop my temps like this. I will keep this review updated as time goes on.

Cons: None so far

3 out of 5 eggsDoes its job but not quietly

Pros: Keeps CPU cool. Easy to set up

Cons: This liquid cooler is noisier than I expected. I was looking to built a rather quiet computer, so I went with a case with only larger (120 mm and 140 mm) fans, a graphics card with two larger fans, so that no fan needs to run at high and noisy speeds. That strategy was successful except that the noisiest part of the computer is now usually the liquid pump. It makes an audible humming sound that is louder than any fan.

Other Thoughts: The liquid cooler does its cooling job well. I mounted it to an i7-5820K processor, using Arctic Silver thermal paste rather than the included thermal grease. On a Gigabyte X99 UD5 wifi motherboard the processor never gets critically hot even overclocked to 4.2 GHz, and the fan speed for the fan that came with the Liqmax 120 is only set to medium. Thus, the cooler does what it is designed for, but look elsewhere if you want a really quiet liquid cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Cool Cooler

Pros: Very cool looking and very cool thermal wise. It's also very easy to install.

Cons: It may have a way (I haven't looked hard) but turning the light off would be nice sometimes. It looks great but sometimes black out is cool to.

Other Thoughts: I have this on an i7 4790k and people keep saying its a HOT CPU. With this cooler my CPU idles at 32*c. When I run 3DMark over and over after a good gaming session at Ultra settings it hangs out around 50*c. It jumps to mid 60's from time to time but never for long.
Unfortunately I never ran the stock cooler so no comparison.

4 out of 5 eggsMilking an old cow

Pros: Temps on my old q6600 (OC 3.2) went from 72C Load to 50 after replacing my old 120mm AC air with this. Installation was easy, but

Cons: I don't know if it was poor design or i missed something, but my bios wouldn't even post until realizing the standoffs had shorted my motherboard.... used cutouts of cardstock as insulation and reinstalled. Luckily my computer booted. Seems happy now, but could've been a disaster.

Other Thoughts: Last upgrade on this aging system and should be compatible with my future build. Worth the price

2 out of 5 eggsTry Something Else

Pros: Cools OK

Cons: Cools JUST OK. But worse, and BAD it is noisy. Forget the fans, the pump sounds like a refrigerator and is louder in the room than my refrigerator. Not exaggerating. And, it is in a well acoustically insulated case. The grating whine is transmitted through the structure because the pump is hard mounted to the CPU/board.

The radiator is listed as 32mm thick, true, but the actual core is only 17.6mm thick, one mm thicker than the core in the 25mm Corsair (for instance). The difference between 17.mm and 32mm is all tank and bracketry.

Other Thoughts: It's better to build your own liquid system and not that hard. I will NOT do this again.

5 out of 5 eggsNice all in one package eggcellent price!

Pros: I like the unit very much. I needed more cooling than the 212 could provide. The install was easy enough to understand and took no time at all.

Cons: I got a stripped stand off nut out of the box when I installed it, so that was a bummer. I tried to re-tap the nut but it still would not hold down one of the corners correctly. So with that it means back to the 212 until I can get a new stand off nut from tech support. I put in a support tick on the website on Friday @ 15:30 pst so I don't anticipate hearing from anyone until Monday at the earliest.

4 out of 5 eggsNice looking water cooling system

Pros: The first was DOA. The system was always shutting down 5sec after i turned on.

The second was in perfect condition. This water cooling is really easy to install and come with thermal paste. There is nothing to set in the BIOS, simply a 3pin CPU fan + 4pin system fan.

The system is really tight on the motherboard

The look of the LED Fan is awsome exactly like in the product video.

Cons: There is some parts that i did not install because i dont know where its going and the instruction manual didn't tell it either.

The location of the speed selector on the fan is really bad when you set a pull out configuration.

Other Thoughts: Dont put alot of thermal paste when you install it.

5 out of 5 eggsRe-review Awesome

Pros: Very sturdy, Well built!! for those reviewers that stated it was cheap, that's a bold faced lie, as the unit is built with the same materials as any DIY water cooling kit. as for those reviewers that stated that it doesn't run any cooler than a stock air cooler, all motherboards have cpu throttling. Which in turn throttles the fan speed accordingly. so turn that feature off before you rate a product poorly. the fan is a PWM fan which is throttled by the cooling profiles used by the bios to keep the system cool as needed. the pump runs at full speed as it is only a three pin connector with no throttling capability. Read you manual before you start throwing a product under the bus!

Cons: Wish the first one wasn't defective! but these things happen and I was taken care of very well! as always
thx enermax and newegg! Wish the LED color was red to match the rest of my system.

Other Thoughts: This is and excellent water cooling setup that's ready to go out of the box. no tweaking or pressure or leak checks.
