Enermax has announced the Aquaflo LCD and Liqtech XTR AIO liquid cooler series. The first targets DIY PCs with a detachable LCD screen, whereas the latter covers the workstation segment with large IHS coverage. Both offer very high thermal ratings.
The Aquaflo LCD series will be available in 240mm and 360mm formats, rated for up to 400W TDP heat dissipation. This lineup uses a dual-chamber pump with enlarged coolant inlets said to deliver 30% higher pressure and 20% higher flow rate. The Aquaflo LCD coolers are ready for AMD AM5 and Intel LGA 1700 platforms.
Aside from its promising specs, the Aquaflo LCD features a detachable magnet screen that you can place on your desk to display system statistics such as CPU temperatures. This allows you to check said stats without looking through the glass side panel or having a third-party app running. A novel idea, especially if we get the ability to show any sensor data we like.
We don’t know how this screen receives data when untethered, however. It probably uses some sort of wireless protocol. It’s also unclear if the display will come bundled with an external power cable. Not including one would be a massive limitation as it would be annoying to put it back on top of the pump block every time the battery empties.
The Liqtech XTR, on the other, hand sticks with the tried and tested fixed screen to focus on cooling performance. This bad boy’s cooling capacity is advertised as exceeding 500W TDP. While impressive, keep in mind that these figures can’t be compared between different brands.
What is certain is that this cooler ensures full coverage of AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper Pro and Intel’s Xeon’s IHS (integrated heat spreader). In other words, an improved heat transfer from latest AMD sTR5 and Intel LGA 4677 socket-compatible chips. This lineup will include 240mm, 280mm, 360mm, and 420mm sizes, all using an EF1 pump design. The latter is said to provide up to 450L/h flow rate.
The Enermax Aquaflo LCD and the Liqtech XTR series will be available in Q2 2024 through major retailers at a yet unknown price.
