Does Enermax have the new cooler you need? – Enermax Liqtech II & TR4 II 360mm All In One Coolers

Today we are looking at the new from Enermax, the Liqtech TR4 II 360 all in one cooler. Not just one but two of them as TR4 has such special requirements Enermax felt it required its own cooler model with a much larger cold plate to address the much larger IHS on Threadripper. Enermax actually deployed the Liqtech TR4 series before but was met with some negative pushback from power users who found their coolers degrading in performance in anywhere from a mere month to months or a year of service. Various teardowns have shown organic growth which is a big issue for a liquid cooler.

To ensure all is well Enermax offered to swap impacted coolers meanwhile respinning the Liqtech cooler lineup for the market to a rev 2 version which is supposed to be better. We will be testing both the TR4 version with its extended cold plate and the Liqtech II 360 for Intel/AMD mainstream socket.

 

The Enermax Liqtech coolers come to market at 160ish range from Amazon from varying sources. Moving to Newegg you can find them right around 159.99 as well

This price when comparing at the time of review is right in the middle of other 360mm coolers out there in the wild presently. entries like the Corsair H150i pro, pulling 30 dollars more while the Deep Cool and Cooler Master options are a bit lower.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.
