Lian Li is well known the world over for their intense dedication to building all aluminium PC chassis. They have been striving for excellence since 1983 by sticking to their way of doing things and it shows. They may be a touch slow to enter new market segments, but when they do, it is because they feel they are truly ready to tackle things head-on. Enter Lian Li's first attempt at an all-in-one liquid cooler.
Today's review focuses on the Galahad 240 AIO, which is Lian Li's first all-in-one liquid cooler. As such, expectations are quite high, even more so because it's not a reskinned Asetek or Coolit unit. Instead, the Galahad 240 uses a triple chamber pump design, and we have a liquid cooler with a unique appearance instead of just a brushed aluminium housing on the radiator. That makes for quite the attractive package considering they also back it with a 5-year warranty, but before we get caught up in the looks, let's take a closer look at the unit itself.
