ENERMAX Unveils the Aquafusion AIO Liquid CPU Cooler

ENERMAX, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance PC hardware products, announces the launch of AQUAFUSION, a new closed-loop liquid cooler series. The new addressable RGB CPU cooler lineup is characterized by a unique Aurabelt water-block and ENERMAX SquA RGB fans for brilliant LED lighting effects. Besides the stunning lighting, AQUAFUSION features ENERMAX's patented cooling technology, Shunt-Channel-Technology (SCT) cold-plate design; the SCT can prevent the formation of the boundary layer and enhance the liquid flow inside the cold-plate, which helps reduce the formation of hot spots. Moreover, the SquA RGB fans can not only support addressable RGB lighting sync, but also generate centered and stronger air pressure with the vortex frame. AQUAFUSION is ready to amaze customers with its glamour and cooling capability.

The Aurabelt water-block designed with the exceptional step-shaped styling can deliver a beautiful multi-layer lighting effect. Furthermore, AQUAFUSION offers 2 ways to manage the RGB lighting. Users can program their preferred effects through RGB motherboard software or app to match the color theme with other RGB gear. Or, users can utilize the AQUAFUSION's control box to select preferred lighting effects (10 pre-set effects), colors, brightness and speed.
AQUAFUSION comes with universal metal mounting kits, supporting the CPU sockets of Intel (LGA2066 / 2011-3 / 2011 / 1366 / 1156 / 1155 / 1151 / 1150) and AMD (AM4 / AM3+ / AM3 / AM2+ / AM2 / FM2+ / FM2 / FM1). This CLC lineup comes in 2 different radiator sizes: 120mm and 240mm with TDP up to 300W and 350W respectively. The coolers will be available at retail in early March 2019.

Actually doesn't appear to be Asetek looks to be the same OEM that does Silverstone's AIOs and also produces the cheapo Uphere units on Amazon. The backplate and mounting hardware is the same. https://www.amazon.com/upHere-Fan,Motherboard-Control-Supported,Intel-Compatible/dp/B07KQQN941?ref_=bl_dp_s_web_18229488011

Likely just paid them off or have a deal. Theres multiple AIO makers besides Coolit and Asetek including Apaltek, Cooler Master, Alphacool, Swiftech, Dynatron, probably some others as well. Having made a closer look the hardware is a bit different but also fairly similar. So my guess its its Dynatron or Apaltek.

That said it doesn't really matter, performance between most is quite similar with the fans being the main deciding factor.

That's pretty much it too.
I have one of the coolermaster single rad units and all I did to make it kick ass is replace the fan with a corsair that seems to push through the radiator better.
Works excellent on my ryzen 7.

I wish they would slow it down with the AMD/Intel units and make some of these for GPUs. There are already way too many of these out there and like you said, they all perform roughly the same, so what's the point?

I always liked and preferred Enermax products. Never had any issues with them especially their PSU's. Never liked their cases though :)

Why is RGB such a trend in the last year(s) or so... really, it's the most useless invention ever.

ITs just a continuation of the preset RGB fans from a decade ago or did everyone already forget you used to have to buy Red / Blue / Green / White etc LED fans so if you wanted different colors had to buy more fans / cathods / light strips etc. It was also expensive for manufacturers as it meant more products to deal with more shipping costs etc. RGB is so big because with it you can give people just about any color they want or no color at all with a single product. Thats why its popular.

I think it is beautiful. RGB on AIO with mirror effect...oh yeah. Looks fantastic in builds. I don't care if they follow NZXT's steps, still a plus for me.

I have to admit, I like a lot of the RGB stuff too. I mean, I'd rather have something interesting to look at. Beats the lame old ugly beige boxes of my youth covered in skateboard and car part stickers. LOL
But I honestly believe for the most part, you can put RGB on a turd and people will buy it, even though it's a turd. There are tons of examples of this out there now.
It's a massive marketing tool to conceal the lame medocrity that lies beneath. How many motherboards out there would still be acceptable without all the flickering of LEDs?
My guess is not too many. ASUS would be forced to sell all their stuff at normal prices without it. ;)

Considering that fan speeds up at 2200 rpm on many of these things, any 45mm thick rad will handle 102 watts ata 10C delta T. For a typical i7, that just means a Delta T of 13C. Now doing the same with a 250 - 300 watt GPU, that is mind boggling.

You "get what ya pay for" ... the money spent on the LEDs just comes out of the budget for other things. When Phanteks came outwith the Luxe, I thought it was well done ... very laid back accents and it had controller for matching LEDs, that made everything simple. I look at those accents as maybe an underline or 3 on a resume. but today's LED rigs I see posted on forums look like a resume with 17 different fonts, colors, bold, italics and underlines with no rhyme nor reason. Any effort put into a clean and aesthetic build with perfect acrylic tubing bends, completely hidden cables and well done case mobds is lost by the distraction from the cacophany of different colors, patters and effects. It not only takes away from the work, it hurts my eyes. Like putting Kethcup on Caviar.
