Oh Boy! Enermax Showed me More Shinies
Enermax sent an email summing up everything they want us to pay attention to after CES. I already covered a lot of what’s here in our last post, but now we have better release windows and prices. For instance, the Saberay will be available this month and the price looks pretty nice at $160. A couple of more items that perked my interest was the inclusion of SleeMax cables to more lines of PSUs, which I think is an awesome thing, and confirmation that the LiqTech II does have the 450 L/h pump I mentioned earlier. Sure, this might be a lot of posting on Enermax, but I’m a big fan of their PSUs and coolers so post I shall!
Right now, I think the Saberay is the perfect, all around case for various reasons. For starters, the easy access Tempered Glass panels are perfect for builders who get inside their cases a lot. Normally, I’d prefer full tower, but the Saberay looks to be so roomy that I don’t think it will make a difference that it’s technically a mid-tower. There’s tons of water cooling support, rather than needless amounts of HDD bays. Seriously! How many builders are putting 8 drive RAIDs in their personal gaming builds? Finally, I don’t believe there’s a more elegant looking case with amazing RGB lighting than the Saberay. I really love this case!
There’s a couple of fans releasing as well. The T.B. silence has an interesting feature in that it will spin as low as 300 RPMs. It would be nice to see it in action, but silent fans are a bit more common in general. The T.B. RGB is the fan that will catch anyone’s eye. Standing out in the RGB world can be pretty hard, but the four light ring design on these guys was a perfect way to do it and I definitely like the choice Enermax made here. In my previous post, I praised the LiqFusion for probably being the best RGB CPU cooler in the market, but I merely speculated about the LiqTech II and it’s pump performance. Now I have confirmation and this could well be the best solution for a builder looking to only overclock their CPU. The great flowrate combined with the amazing build quality I’ve seen from Enermax in the past will likely make this a top tier CLC unit in comparison to others. The pre-assembled custom AIOs I’ve seen from other companies are great for the quality, but certain parts like the pump and radiator are cut back from the full custom counterparts. The LiqTech II will probably be the perfect match for users wanting great CPU cooling only, while maintaining the simplicity of the CLC installation.
I left a gallery below of some of the images included, as well as a brief overview of the various 2018 releases from Enermax. Check out the extra info below, as well as the link to Enermax’s site. There’s one more release that makes me extremely happy! When I reviewed the MaxTytan I mentioned that I hope to see SleeMax on more of their PSUs. Lo and behold, the Revolution D.F. is going to include the fully modular, custom cables with a gold rated unit! I’m dying that I wasn’t able to see all of this in person at CES, but I’m still just as excited about reporting these releases here, anyways.
