Test System Setup
To see our testing methodology and to find out what goes into making our charts, please refer to our CPU Cooler Testing and Methodology article.
Our Liqtech 120S ended up at 50.75 degrees in the stock level of loaded temperatures. Moving out about five places in either direction, we see that this Enermax is capable of keeping up with its competition, and it falls just slightly behind a dual radiator version form a competitor.
We can only assume that the HP model would perform better, but only marginally different at this level.
As we move over to the overclocked settings, we find the Liqtech 120S has moved up a slot on this chart. Within four degrees of the lead, a 71.08 degree average is commendable, and proves to be more efficient than its Silverstone rival, and again, just shy of dual radiator based AIOs
Noise Level Results
We weren't really all that pleased with the noise levels, but we are dealing with a lot of CFM and a high FPI radiator in this design, and this is expected for this cooler. As far as other AIOs are concerned, this Enermax falls in the garage range for noise.
With 12V moving the fan blades at this point, we are now getting more than 100 CFM passing through the tight fin structure, and the noise climbs to a level that gets to be annoying over the length of the testing we did. Thankfully, this fan is PWM capable, and will not need to run at this level very often.
