Enermax Liqfusion 240 RGB CPU Cooler

The head unit is made of the cold plate, the chamber for the liquid to pass through it, and on top of it all is the fancy cover with the included flow indicator. The top of the cover has a brushed metal ring with the Enermax name done in exposed metal. The outer ring of the cover is where the RGB LEDs are, and this light also glows in towards the center, which can be seen on the flow indicator once running.

On the right side of the head unit is where the adjustable angled fittings are. They allow the coolant to go in one side and out the other, to shift the heat to the radiator. A single lead comes from between them, and since the head unit does not contain a pump, it is to drive the RGB LEDs.

After removing the protective sticker from the base, we can see the machine marks left in the copper plate, which has been nickel plated. The center of the plate is the highest point, with a mild deflection from it as you move to the edges. However, convex base designs have proven to work well in the past.

As you move away from the head unit and get much closer to the radiator, you will eventually run into the in-line pump. It is powered with a 3-pin fan connection and has a rubber cap over it, and the Enermax log on the top to dress it up. While it covers both lines, only one line is powered by the pump, while the other is retained for a cleaner installed appearance.

From the fittings on the head unit to the edge of the radiator, we see that Enermax has supplied us with sixteen inches of tubing. Not only that; the retention system looks clean, just like the braided cloth covering on the tubes.

The radiator is what we expect to see with just about any AIO. The header at the left is thicker so that the tubes can attach to it, and the high-density FPI of the aluminum fins is typical.

There is one more thing to show. While Enermax bills this as a closed-loop system, it has a way to add coolant. By removing this thumbscrew, you can use the provided coolant and top off the loop to get rid of noise from air pockets, or to top it off as some evaporates over time.
