Enermax ELC 120 Liquid CPU Cooler Review - FrostyTech.com Enermax ELC 120 Liquid CPU Cooler Review
Wed Mar 13, 2013 | 4:50P| PermaLink
Enermax certainly isn't a name we associate with watercooling and even though any company can take an Asetek/CoolIT base unit and slap their own fans and branding on it, Enermax haven't done that. Enermax haven't officially announced who is the OEM producer of their ELC watercooling units, it is clearly not them. My educated guess, based on what I have read and seen, is that Asia Vital Components are the makers of it. It is seemingly not a CoolIT or Asetek rebrand so we should expect the performance to differ from those types of units. However, whether this is a positive or negative difference is the really important question. You can see full detailed specifications below. For reference we have with us the ELC 120-TA but the only difference between this and the ELC 120-TB is the fans. You can see the TA model's fans are more designed towards static pressure and have Blue LEDs while the TB model's fans are more orientated towards airflow and have no LEDs. The difference in performance I suspect would be 1-2 degrees at the most between models. Enermax's ELC 120 and 240 CPU coolers were "paper-launched" well back in mid-late 2012, nearly 4-5 months ago now. Since then the core design of the ELC series has remained the same, the only difference is that Enermax have resolved some key issues with the pump that they had on the first batch of engineering samples and is now making a real launch. However, my concern is that in those 6 months we have seen new generations of AIO liquid coolers from Asetek and CoolIT. This would suggest that, unless Enermax have produced something really excellent, we could easily see this product fall behind the newly updated competition which these Enermax coolers weren't designed to compete with six months ago. The Enermax ELC 120 was probably designed to compete with the last generation of AIO coolers such as the Corsair H60/H80, not the H60(v2), H90 and H80i it is currently priced up against.
