A Closer Look at the Enermax LIQMAX II 120s
Liqmax II 120s radiator is painted black with dimensions of 120x154x27 mm; not including fans. The tubing that circulates the coolant is done with rubber and each tube is about 300 mm in length and about half an inch in diameter. The CPU block is copper based, but unlike other CPU coolers we have looked at the copper is not polished to a mirrored finished. Water pump motor sits on top of the CPU block that pumps at 2700 rpm. The pump has ceramic bearings which creates less noise and extends the like of the pump.
Inside of the copper CPU block we find a new design of the heat sink, Shunt-Channel-Technology. With Shunt-Channel-Technology Enermax is minimizing the effect of Boundary Layers in the heat sink resulting in better cooling of the entire CPU area.
The Liqmax II 120s pump has a built in blue LED that lights up Enermax logo. If you need to adjust the angle of the tubes, you can do so by turning the connectors that are attached to the CPU cooler.
Liqmax II 120s comes with two 120mm fans. These fans have a unique blade design, called “Batwing”, that provide high static pressure for better radiator cooling. These fans can run at three different speeds 500-1200, 1600 and 2000 RPM. Operation voltage of these guys is 12 V with 0.38 A current. What I found by looking closely at the fans is that they have rubber ends to help to minimize rattling and vibration into the case.
You can manually change the operation speeds of the fans by adjusting the switch on the side of the fan. The fans are installed with four long neck screws and combined dimensions of one installed fan is 53mm.
