Final Thoughts

It has taken us a bit of time, sitting here contemplating, how we would spin the end of the review to shine a bright light on the Enermax Liqfusion 240 RGB. If you are one to follow trends blindly, regardless of the money spent or the benefits to be had, then this cooler is for you. Many companies have moved to RGB lighting, although Enermax has done a brilliant job of offering RGB LEDs, we do not feel that it is enough. At one point in our career as a reviewer, we recall cooler companies caring about being the best in performance, but the trend has moved to bling over everything else. Enermax follows suit with what manufacturers "think" is best for the buyer, and at these prices, even innovations like moving the pump to put the screws to Asetek and adding a flow indicator isn't enough to keep us interested.

Enermax Liqfusion 240 RGB CPU Cooler Review 20 |

While it is a decent performer, as long as you do not plan to overclock your CPU, then things look better, but still not that good. In stock tests, as well as those that followed, the Liqfusion turned in the highest results of any 240mm AIO we have tested to date. With "funny" specifications for the airflow and pressure, we had no idea what the fans were capable of, but the bottom line is we were right, they added the figures together, which makes the customer feel like they are getting something they are not. There were some things we did like about the Liqfusion 240 RGB semi-sealed AIO, but once we add pricing as another factor into what we got, things get drug further downhill.

Compared to other AIO, we do not fault Enermax in the prices we see. The Liqfusion 240 RGB can be had for less than $120, which in the grand scheme of things seems excellent. However, when you look at the results in the charts, even if you can find this on sale, it is still twice the cost of what you would pay for some air coolers which are just as quiet, and deliver the same results. Granted, ten degrees is not that big of a temperature swing from first place to where this cooler landed, know that all of your money went into the RGB LEDs and the extra controller. What you are buying in the Enermax Liqfusion 240 RGB is some of the best lighting in the industry, but it appears that, like many other manufacturers, they are okay with charging big bucks for a cooler with lackluster performance.

Overall Rating82%

The Bottom Line: We give Enermax credit for the amazing looks of the Liqfusion and its ability to stay quiet under normal conditions. Even while the score looks good, the cost compared to better coolers, and the fact that it is the lowest performing 240mm AIO we have tested, should keep you away!

After a year of gaming, Chad caught the OC bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and Chad has had many air and water setups. With a few years of abusing computer parts, he decided to take his chances and try to get a review job. As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
