A New Ice Age
Hamburg, 7th of January 2015. With Liqmax II, Enermax introduces two new entry-level models for an effective CPU liquid cooling. Apart from Liqmax II 120, the space-saving cooling solution with compact 120mm radiator, the manufacturer provides a version with dual 240mm radiator as well. Liqmax II 240 is designed for high-performance workstations and gaming rigs with heavy-duty multi-core CPUs. Enermax engineers have optimized the concept of Liqmax series in several aspects.
New Design & Proved Technology
Optically, the Liqmax II series is almost unrecognizable: The black-grey colour scheme with the white LED light at the top of the water block creates a plain and elegant appearance which is suitable for most system configurations. Flexible rubber tubes simplify the installation and the dense aluminium radiator allows for an excellent heat dissipation. Like all liquid coolers from Enermax, also the cold plate of Liqmax II is based on the patented Shunt Channel Technology: A wide channel inside the micro-fin structure ensures a quick and efficient cooling of heavy loaded and overclocked processors.
Higher Pressure with Double Batwing Fan Blades
Another novelty of the Liqmax II coolers are the "Double Batwing Blade" fans. The refined shape of the blades generates a higher static pressure at lower fan speed. At 1200 RPM, the Double Batwing Blade fan achieves a static pressure of 1.3mm-H2O while the Cluster Advance (UCCLA12P) with the classic Batwing blades does not exceed 1.037mm-H2O at 1200 RPM. It means the new blade design provides more than 20% more performance and a significantly lower noise generation.
Flexible Fan Speed Control
The Liqmax II models come with two Double Batwing Blade fans. The speed can be controlled automatically via the 4P PWM interface of the mainboard. Apart from that, the intelligent APS ("Adjustable Peak Speed") function allows for an individual RPM setting corresponding to the particular system requirements. Enermax integrated an easy accessible switch at the fan frame which enables three speed modes: Silent (600 - 1200 RPM) Performance (600 - 1700 RPM) and Overclock (600 - 2200 RPM) mode. Rubber pads avoid the fan from vibrations and annoying side noises.
Full Support of most Current Processors
Liqmax II supports all latest Intel® and AMD® platforms (Intel® LGA 775/1150/1155/1156/1366/2011 and AMD® AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2/FM2+).
Prices & Availability
The two models of the Liqmax II series are now available on sale. MSRP incl. VAT: 59.90 Euro for the Liqmax II 120 (ELC-LMR120S-BS) and 77.90 Euro for the Liqmax II 240 (ELC-LMR240-BS).

Background Knowledge: What is the Advantage of Water Cooling?
During simple computing processes, the CPUs of today are working economically and efficiently. Though as soon as you switch to more complex applications such as graphically demanding games, 3D rendering, video cut or scientific computing, the CPU will automatically fully utilize or even overclock certain cores. Quickly emerging hot spots are the consequence. In this situation air coolers reach their limit. According to its physical structure water can quickly dissipate much more heat than air. Therefore, liquid coolers are the best choice for powerful PC systems with multi-core processors.
