Enermax Computex 2019 Extravaganza Part 1: Fans and Coolers

Enermax launched over a dozen new product lines and dozens more individual SKUs this Computex. This article part of a 3-part series that covers their exhaustive booth, beginning with fans, and CPU coolers. At the heart of the company's cooling portfolio this year is the new SquaRGB, a new line of case/radiator fans introduced this February, characterized with an RGB LED diffuser design that supposedly looks like a square with two curved sides. With sizes ranging from 120 mm to 140 mm and 200 mm, Enermax used these fans in nearly all their new products, including standalone fan sets, CPU coolers (both air and liquid types), and pre-installed in their new cases. The bore of the fan-frame is still circular, and the irregular shape surrounding the bore funnels air into the impeller.
Next up, is the ETS-T50 tower-type CPU cooler, which comes in all-black and all-white. This cooler features a conventional tower-type design with factory-fitted 120 mm fans in push-pull configuration, and a matching black top-plate. Five 6 mm-thick anodized copper heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU at the base, conveying heat through the aluminium fin-stack that's ventilated by a pair of fans. The fins are angled in a way to increase turbulence, and heat-dissipation. With both its fans installed, the ETS-T50 is capable of munching though 230 Watts of thermal loads. It supports sockets LGA2066, LGA115x, and AM4. The included fans take in 4-pin PWM for the fan motor, and 3-pin ARGB for the lighting.
Enermax also showed off newer variants of its Liqmax III series all-in-one closed-loop liquid coolers (CLCs) launched this March. Among these is the TUF Edition, with ASUS TUF Gaming Alliance co-branding. Available as Liqmax III 120 TUF Edition and Liqmax III 240 TUF Edition, its variants are differentiated by radiator sizes of 120 mm x 120 mm, and 240 mm x 120 mm, respectively. The fan impellers come with ASUS TUF Gaming Alliance branding on the hubs, The fans as well as the RGB LED element on top of the pump-block take in 3-pin addressable RGB input. The cooler features Enermax's patented shunt-channel technology in the pump-block that improves heat-dissipation to the coolant. The cooler supports sockets LGA2066, LGA115x, and AM4.
Leading Enermax's CLC pack are the Liqtech TR4 II OC 360 (exclusively for AMD TR4), and Liqtech II 360. These coolers are designed to handle thermal loads of over 500 Watts, thanks to an enlarged pump-block with shunt-channels that guide more coolant across the base; and the large 360 mm x 120 mm radiators, with a trio of included high air-flow fans. The high-RPM pump of these coolers can push up to 450 liters of coolant per hour.

Lastly, there's the Aquafusion. This cooler, designed for LGA2066, LGA115x, and AM4, is characterized by a boutique new pump-block body design that has elements of infinity reflection of the RGB LED diffuser ring running the perimeter of the block, and a glossy top with an illuminated logo. This block is plumbed to a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator ventilated by a pair of SquaRGB 120 mm fans.
