LIQTECH 120X High Quality Aluminum Water Block


LIQTECH 120X Patented Shunt-Channel-Technology (SCT)


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.

LIQTECH 120X Double-Thick Radiator with Seamless Contact Area


Enermax innovative seamless radiator offers 120% better coverage than a conventional structure.
This makes the fins to carry away more heat from the pipes and cool the coolant efficiently than traditional structures.

LIQTECH 120X Flexible Polyamide (PA) Rubber Tube


The flexible polyamide (PA) rubber tubes with non-permeable layer. PA tubes are commonly applied in aerospace industry, provide maximum durability and effectively shield against leakage and corrosion.

LIQTECH 120X Patented APS PWM Control


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 eggsEnermax Liqtech 120X Aluminum All-in-One Liquid Cooler 43MM Thick Radiator

Pros: This all in one unit is comparable to the larger 240mm units due to the extra thick radiator. The size allows additional placement options not available with 240mm units. Overclocking my amd CPU from 3.4Ghz to 4.0Ghz as a trial run. The temps. on the MB was 25C and the CPU never passed 47C. That is with the Liqtech unit's fans set at medium and the case fans on low. Very please with purchase. Plans of adding another unit to cool GPU in the future.

Cons: The cons are valid, but I am not removing any eggs for them due to the unit performing wonderfully. The first con is the AMD backplate used to replace the AMD type is seems very cheaply made and I had a difficut time keeping the pins lined up and not falling out.
The second con is the fans while having three different speed settings but the switch for them is located very near the blades and motor making it very problematic to adjust on the fly. The switches should be external with a wired switch like several brands of case fans available.

Other Thoughts: I read many reviews posted by others before purchasing this unit. There were comments made about the screws being to short to mount the fans to the readiator through the case wall. I had not such issues. True, they do not provide any extra threads, but they are long enough.

3 out of 5 eggsIts A Cooler ?

Pros: It was pretty straight forward to install. Hoses are a bit stiff but manageable enough.

Cons: LOUD @ 2,500 . Will NOT cool @ 2,000 RPM on my board. And I mean very loud.

Asrock 990 Fatility Killer Board with AMD 8350 CPU. On a good (make that two different) aftermarket Coolers temps ran a steady 39 Celcius. Northbridge seemed to run HOT at 63, but even AsRock has no clue what that reading is on HwMonitor.

After installing this cooler, temps start at 34 and peak at 69 Celcius. Yes. Its installed right, Artic Silver is broken in and stable. It just can't cool this CPU on this board. It will spike to 54 with NO CPU activity at all. Internet usage runs temps @ 45 constant. Gaming runs it up to 69-70 Celcius.

Now.. As I don't really believe this to be just this cooler, I also lay blamb on AsRock and their FX990 Chipset and board. I would like to see results of this cooler on a MSI 990 or any 970 board.

I also blamb my older Thermaltake case. Although its big and roomy with plenty of fans, its old tech, back when chips never got this hot. So. I ordered a new THOR V2 case.. I'll post back those numbers too.

I never mentioned that these temps read the same running stock @ 4.0 and OCed @ 4.5 and 4.7

I wonder if ambient temps are playing into this in this case... My old Q9650 OCed @ 4.0 never had a problem on air in this case on a X48 board...

Other Thoughts: To be fair.. I am NOT alone complaining about this board and CPU mix and their temps...

So.. This cooler may just cool the heck out of any other combo of board and chip. BUT i promise it will not make any fatility 990 running a 8350 owner to happy...

3 out of 5 eggsGood Cooler, Bolts too short

Pros: Does what it supposed to do. 80-95F with 6 core Haswell-E overclocked to 4.0 GHz

Cons: Believe the others comments about mounting hardware being too short for fan-radiator-fan assembly to connect to your case. That is why I took off 2 eggs. Ridiculous. Had to go the hardware store. My case is a fractal arc midi r2.

Other Thoughts: Enermax, get it together with your mounting hardware. You have a great product and you actually included bolts that are too short for many cases due to case thickness and bevels.

1 out of 5 eggsPump problem

Pros: Looks good. Initial cooling was awesome, (avg. 40C under load gaming).

Cons: Blue LED on pump, (my color scheme is Black & Red). After 32 days of operation the pump shuts off when load causes temps. above 50C.

Other Thoughts: Is my pump defective???

5 out of 5 eggsLiqtech 120X

Pros: Cools as well as any of the 280mm coolers. Easier to mount the radiator and fans than the long 240 and 280 coolers. Does not require a huge case to mount the cooler and fans. Three speed settings on fans. Better radiator design and quality.

Cons: As many have mentioned the screws needs to be a little longer. The switches for the fan speed cannot be changed without removing the fans from the radiator.

Other Thoughts: First off I do not often do a review but this item deserves my two cents worth. I am not an overclocker so there is not overclocking information.

I have repaired and built computers for 23 years as a hobby. Over those years I have built more than 200 computers and upgraded another 100 or so with new motherboards, CPU, and memory. Most of those were for customers who just want budget computers for email, word prcessing, picture editing and browsing the Internet. A few built for power users. Not many require cooling with water but I have done two builds this year requiring water.

The first was an AMD FX-9370 Vishera 4.4GHz. This CPU runs quiet a bit hotter than the AMD AMD FX-8370 Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz so I cooled this with a top rated brand 240mm long radiator cooler. I do a lot of video encoding which maxes out the CPU's. I did some encoding for six hours. I was a little disappointed with this cooler as it idled at 32 degrees. With a 42 to 45 under normal load and maxed out at 65 degrees with six hours of video encoding. This is acceptable but I expected better.

The second build was an AMD FX-9590 Vishera 8-Core 4.7GHz. Since the first build warmer than I expected I decided to use a top rated brand rated. 280mm water cooler. This cooler was much better. Idled at 29, normal load 38 to 40 and maxed out with six hours of video encoding 52 degrees. Much better results than 240mm cooler with a hotter CPU.

Water cooling has come a long way with the next generation water cooling just now becoming available. After reading about some of the latest water coolers and watching videos I really liked what I saw about the Enermax Liqtech 120X. If not for the $79 price I probably would have not ordered this cooler but I thought for the price along with the $25 rebate I would try it.

Since I had a few days to play with the FX-9590 I installed the Enermax Liqtech 120X on the FX-9590 CPU. What a huge surprise, this cooler gave me the identical results of top rated 280mm cooler. Idle 29, normal load 38-42, and 52 max load for six hours. The quality of the radiator is much better than any other water cooler I have used. Not even close. With the thicker radiator and a push/pull setup this performs as well as the much larger 280mm coolers. I used the max rpm setting on the fans but it is no more noise than the 280mm coolers, maybe less and acceptable.

I'm highly impressed with this Enermax cooler. It's a great cooler for much less money than other coolers at any price. Looking forward to testing the next generation ENERMAX ELC-LMR120S once it becomes widely available. It requires less fan speed hopefully for the same or better results than 120X with switch settings that can be changed easily. Hopefully Enermas will give us some longer fan screws in the new model.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed due to provided hardware being inadequate for my install

Pros: Don't know yet. Cannot complete installation w/ provided hardware. Looks nice though.

Cons: Provided long screws are too short to go through my case -> fan -> radiator combo.

Other Thoughts: Can anyone please tell me exactly what size screws this radiator uses -- length, size, thread pitch, etc.? I've taken one to each of my local hardware stores (in the US) and none of them have similar-sized (but longer) screws nor could any of them tell me with certainty exactly what size these screws are so I could order them from somewhere.

5 out of 5 eggsMan o man

Pros: Man this thing is great for me. Bigger than you think by the pictures. Not too big though. Really nicely put together. Fit in my IWIN BUC case perfect. Looks great and performs outstanding. Fit perfect in place of my 120mm rear case fan. I just wish I had a need for a second one cause I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Cons: Now there doesn't appear to be many cons that I know. I do know that the fans screws are too short for some things like bolt up through your case to fan. Mine just made it by a hair. I wanted to put one fan outside on the back of case but the short screws prevented me from trying that. The fans are somewhat loud on the high setting but I really don't think I will even need to run this thing at high because of the cool temps at low speed. If I overclock I might need to set the speed on the second position but this is what liquid cooling is about. It keeps thing cool.

Other Thoughts: I would buy again and wish I had bought this sooner. It is perfect for what I need. The thing is beautiful. Buy one.

4 out of 5 eggsLiquitech 120X

Pros: Thick radiator, two fans, cool pump house design.

Cons: The pass through screws that are supposed to go through the back of the case (or top) are not long enough if you have the Lian Li PC-7B Plus II case. Seems like the aluminum is thicker in the back and the hoses do not reach when mounted in the front. However, if you just set it as an intake from the back and use the 'case screws' it will work just fine.

Other Thoughts: Its a really good product, the instructions for mounting are simple enough that a cave man could do it. Just should include longer pas through screws when they need to go through a thicker case+fan>radiator. Also would like to see a tad bit longer tubing for some front mounted options in some cases, but no a big deal.

3 out of 5 eggsScrews don't fit............

Pros: Thick moves a lot of heat. Two fans with controls. Nice to look at.
Does come with a very nice Y fan splitter, thermal paste and other cables.

Cons: It comes with 8 long screws to attached the two 120mm fans that come with it. The four screws for the fan to the Rad barely go inside the screw holes. The other 4 screws that you have to attached thru the outside of your case do not fit in all the way, due to thickness of the back of the PC case. I had to go out and buy longer screws to attached the fan to the Rad and to mount the cooler to the back of my case.

Also my was missing the sticker things that you are to place between the motherboard and the CPU Back plate so it does not short out. Again I had to go buy some at extra cost to me. which could be a good thing given that the reviews on line and videos are saying and showing that these sticker like pads are crazy thin like the Scotch tape thin and mad people are worried that they will not protect the motherboard, killing it and your CPU.

The instruction do not tell you where to plug in the water block ( case fan header or CPU header or CPU Opt header).

the instructions do not tell how tight to tighten the 4 water block screws, to use ur hand or a screw driver..

Very, very ,very, very, hard to put on mostly due to the screws being too short.

The water cables are crazy thick and hard to move around to the point that they hit up against the mounting spring loaded screws that attache the water block to ur CPU.

Warranty is weak like two or 3 years.

Other Thoughts: Nothing at this time. Let you guys know what happens in the coming weeks.
