The Zalman LQ315 ships fully assembled, plumbed and filled with a coolant. It installs onto Intel socket LGA115x/1366/2011 and AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2 processors. It uses a 120mm wide aluminum heat exchanger equipped with a single 120mm PWM fan that operates at 2000-900RPM. The pump/waterblock is built around a novel micro-skived copper base plate that is connected to the heat exchanger via a 30cm length of flexible rubber tubing. Zalman's LQ315 water cooler retails for about $91 USD / CDN. In this review Frostytech will take the extra step of testing the LQ315 with a second fan attached to the rear of the radiator.
