Enermax ELC120 Review

0

Enermax have been around for two decades now and continue to be a dominant force in top quality power supplies, stylish and elegant cases and even with their award winning fans.  Having had the pleasure to test out the Enermax ETS-T40 CPU Cooler, I expect a strong showing from Enermax today given their lineage in the industry.

In particular today, I will be taking a look at one of their latest CPU cooler offerings, more namely the ELC120 AIO CPU cooler, which uses 2 x 120mm fans from their T.B Apollish range.  With this being a water cooler, how will it cope with my i7-4770k under load?  Will it buckle under the heat or will it set a new standard in AIO cooling solutions?

Let’s take a look, starting with the specifications…
