Packaging and Product Images
The packaging that Enermax went with was a bold red and black color scheme that we feel would make it stand out when viewed on a store shelf. It almost screams, “Look at me!”.
The front of the box, in addition to the red and black color scheme, features a picture of the product that almost blends into the black background and water block; we only wish they would have showed off the red rubber isolating strips. Near the bottom on a red accent strip, Enermax decided to represent some of the key features of the Liqtech 240, with easy to understand pictures that do a great job conveying information to potential buyers.
Once you open the box, you find the product well packed to keep it protected against falls and other hazards that it might encounter before you get to put it into your system. Each of the individual components and parts for the Liqtech 240 are neatly packed in their own compartments to prevent them from moving around and damaging each other.
After unpacking the box, we can see all the different components and parts included with the Liqtech 240 that enable it to fit the most popular CPU sockets. Some of the parts are specific to AMD and some to Intel socket types, so we advise you to read the manual to know what parts to use for your build.
The radiator itself is a 240mm radiator that measures 273mm long including the tanks, 120mm wide and 27mm thick. In case you are wondering why it is called a 240, it is because it has a 240 x 120 mm surface area, which is also why two 120mm fans mount on top and/or on the bottom. Also shown in the above image is Enermax’s seamless fin structure that allows for a greater cooling surface.
Enermax included two of its new, high-pressure twister fans that provide excellent air pressure to push the air through the fins on the radiator. We found them to be fairly quiet and a much needed improvement over other systems we have tested. They also included a lovely PWM Y-cable for the two fans.
The top of the water block features a very distinct finned heatsink design with the Enermax logo in the center that lights up in an icy-cool blue color. On the bottom of the water block is a finely polished copper heat plate with countersunk screws holding it in place.
