CPU cooling has been one of the most viable topics and discussions for PC enthusiasts. The ability to squeeze out more juice of the processor and keeping it cool with third party CPU coolers has been the trend for overclockers and enthusiasts alike. In most conditions, liquid cooling has been regarded as the optimized solution for bringing temps down and boosting clocks up.
Just recently, Enermax, a brand known for PSUs and Cases, has entered into the CPU liquid cooling department. Enermax has released the ELC series which includes ELC120-TA, ELC120-TB and the much more high-end ELC240 models. And with the patent issues going about, Enermax also managed to keep their patent on their own thermal conductivity technology.
One of the features introduced and emphasized by Enermax which makes it different from the other conventional and current liquid coolers is that they seem to feature a simplified close-loop system which prevents any hassle brought about by liquid cooling technology. Enermax claims that there won't be any need to replace the coolant for their systems and maintenance-free.
Enermax ELC series conforms with both AMD and Intel platforms that will make it easier and flexible for the PC market. ELC120-TB and the ELC240 are armed with Silence Fans while the ELC120-TA slightly differs with a LED fan but retains the same functionality with the TB. Prices for the Philippine market has not yet been announced but in the US market, the ELC series costs at $89.99 (ELC120 TB and TA) and $119.99 (for the ELC240).
