Enermax shows off its new LIQMAX 120S lineup. Expected to ship in mid-November, this new line of all-in-one watercooling solutions features a waterblock with Shunt-Channel-Technology (SCT) to improve thermal conductivity. The kit is available in two versions; one with fancy LED lights (ELC-LM120S-TAA) and one with a high-power fan (ELC-LM120S-HP).
ENERMAX’s new line of liquid CPU cooler LIQMAX 120S (ELC-LM120S-HP/ELC-LM120S-TAA) offers users a one piece solution for a quiet and efficient way to cool their computer systems. The new LIQMAX 120S series features a patented Shunt-Channel-Technology (SCT) (Figure 1) to improve thermal conductivity, a unique 3D extruded cold-plate structure designed for better stability and rapid heat conductivity. The HP variant has a high-pressure airflow fan while the TAA variant comes with patented blue circular LED lights. Both fans feature a Smart APS (Adjustable Peak Speed) Control provides 3 peak RPM options.

The ENERMAX thermal team has taken a long-term development to improve upon Enermax’s liquid CPU cooler series. With the all-in-one, closed-loop system, the LIQMAX 120S-HP & LIQMAX 120S-TAA both provide superior cooling performance without the complexity of DIY water cooling kits. These maintenance free, all-in-one liquid cooling systems come with prefilled coolant in the system and offer trouble-free user installation.
The quality and design of the water block determines the cooling performance of a liquid cooler. This is why LIQMAX 120S applies ENERMAX’s new patented Shunt Channel Technology (SCT) cold plate. The SCT and the unique 3D Extruded cold-plate structure give excellent stability and rapid heat conductivity, redistribute the coolant and maximize the utilization rate. The less utilized coolant has more opportunity to combine with the heated coolant which traveled through the hot zone.
Furthermore, the renowned ENERMAX Twister Bearing is now integrated with High-Pressure Airflow Fan with APS Control (patented). The fans also come with 3 cooling PWM variable modes, including Silent Mode at 600~1300 RPM, Performance Mode at 600~2000 RPM and Overclock Mode at 600~2500 RPM.
LIQMAX 120S-HP & LIQMAX 120S-TAA coolers also feature a ceramic bearing for longer life span. LIQMAX series supports the following Intel® CPUs: LGA 775/1150/ 1155/1156/1366/2011; AMD® based processors: AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2 with trouble-free smart bracket installation.
