Shortly before Christmas 2022 has already been with us in the Advent calendar, now only officially introduced. The Enermax AQUAFUSION ADV series of AiO water coolers succeeds the AQUAFUSION series and provides innovative technologies for excellent cooling performance.
Enermax AQUAFUSION ADV Series Introduced
The AQUAFUSION water cooling from Enermax could quite convince in our test in August 2019. Now it finally has a successor in the form of the new Enermax AQUAFUSION ADV series, which can cope with the latest CPUs from Intel and AMD and also significantly improves in terms of cooling performance.
The fast and user-friendly universal mounting system offers support for all Intel and AMD sockets except TR4/SP3 sockets.
The pressure compensation spring system and the Dow-Corning heat transfer paste with high heat transfer ensure a perfect contact with the heat spreader of the CPU. Thereby, the AQUAFUSION ADV is compatible with a hole spacing of 120 mm.
Dual-Chamber water block & Central Coolant Inlet (CCI) design
Thanks to the patented Dual-Chamber design, the pump is isolated from the coolant, which should benefit the life of the cooler. The cold coolant enters the first chamber with the pump and is then forced through the cold plate, absorbing the heat.
A second chamber then collects the heated coolant and then passes it to the radiator for cooling. Via the Central Coolant Inlet (CCI), on the other hand, the coolant is injected right into the center of the CPU and distributed evenly across the cold plate with the help of Enermax’s Shunt Channel Technology (SCT).
The end result is to allow for an even shorter coolant flow path with faster heat transfer.
Fancy RGB lighting
Of course, the Enermax AQUAFUSION ADV series also features an appealing RGB lighting. Offered is an ARGB water block in Infinity mirror look, which in conjunction with the Luminous Aurabelt effect provides almost infinite possibilities of lighting.
To match, the new addressable Enermax SquA ADV RGB fans are launched at the same time, which can be customized together with the AQUAFUSION ADV via the motherboard software or the included control box.
