Enermax NEOChanger RGB Reservoir and Pump Combo Review

Introduction This was it. The moment I’ve been waiting for from the first day I joined PureOC. I took the res out of the box, grabbed a fitting, and gently screwed it into the port…..OH MY GOODNESS! That was my last moment to turn back and be a normal computer user. From this moment on, I can only imagine making even better custom cooling loops in the future. The look of a new XSPC fitting inside the Enermax NEOChanger brought new levels of joy that reminded me of my very first PC build, then I bent the edges of the next fitting by screwing it in a bit too tightly and knew that the experience was just like my first computer build. Enough about me, though. Let’s get into this beautiful looking piece of hardware from Enermax. I think their designers have pointedly found pieces of hardware that don’t represent RGB LED enough and decided to fix the problem themselves. I absolutely love them for this! Here at PureOC, it started with the NEOllusion and continues today with the NEOChanger. How will Enermax fair in the custom cooling arena? We’ll find out right after a brief word about the company. Lepatek Corporation an ENERMAX Company is an exclusive authorized supplier for ENERMAX and LEPA brand products for both North America and South America.

Enermax’s Awesome RGB Reservoirs are Here! The NEOChanger

I was completely taken off guard by Enermax/Lepa when I visited their booth in January. They had some great looking products, yet it felt like there wasn’t enough people taking notice. My feelings on the subject could be completely off, but it isn’t going to stop me from showing off more releases I think many builders would be interested in. It looks like the Enermax NEOChanger Reservoir and Pump kits are about to release and while I may be one of the few writers that gets excited about everything RGB, I’m really excited about the lighting on these units. There’s much more going on with these units than a simple RGB lighting effect. For starters, the RGB cycles can be controlled separately by an included remote if you need stand alone lighting control. However, the lighting can also sync with your motherboard’s if it has a 4-pin RGB header. The best part though is the flow rating on that pump. At 900 L/h, these seem like extremely capable units for a custom loop with multiple components. Top it all off with an RPM meter and it looks like a great offering from Enermax. Performance is a primary concern for many of us, but I still feel like RGB lighting is a great addition to any great part. Surely I’m not the only one who ends up staring at color cycle effects for minutes at at a time! Check out the rest of the press release below for more details and specifications. Stay tuned at PureOC because we plan to have a more detailed look at the ...



XSPC DDC Photon 170 Reservoir/Pump Combo – Review

XSPC has been known to bring attractive product to the market usually at an equally attractive price tag. These two factors have made them very popular over the last few years. Radiators, reservoirs, tubing and fittings all were released with a good amount of fanfare. None of those came close to the buzz created by the Photon D5 combo. The sturdy glass Photon was already an instant success and combining it with a strong D5 pump sent a strong message to everyone: XSPC has great minds at work. The sticking point was the overall size left some out in the cold wishing for a combo setup that could fit in the smaller chassis. Ok folks, we are here today to finally silence those that have been complaining, wishing or requesting loudly to XSPC after they released the combo Photon D5 Reservoir . You got your wish! XSPC decided to follow up the incredibly popular Photon D5 with a sought after DDC version. This will make many people happy, including me as I have been working on a lot of small systems lately. The smaller size, good head pressure and sturdy stain resistant glass has me excited to see what it can do and how well it can fit into a beloved small form factor case. Let us get started then.



 
 
 
 
 

Cooler Master Seidon 120M Liquid CPU Cooler

Today we are going to be looking at a new AIO/CL CPU Liquid Cooler unit. Just in case you don't know these termes, AIO stands for "All in One" and "CL" for "Closed Loop." These conventions have become rather popular over the last few years in the PC world. With the latest technology advancements in water cooling, it has become much easier for consumers to water cool their PCs with these AIO CPU Liquid Cooling units. The design takes the guess work out. With water cooling kits in the past, it could take countless hours of planning, and assembly could become a headache for those that have no experience. However, recently we have seen a change with the new trend in water cooling. We have started to see these AIO and CL coolers show up from several manufactures. Today we are going to take a look at a new-comer in the AIO CPU Liquid Cooler field. It is a device from Cooler Master called the Seidon 120m Liquid CPU Cooler. While we have seen multiple manufactures with a similar designs, Cooler Master really stepped up to the plate in trying to provide something a little different and competitive. As we move forward in this review we will take a look at how the Cooler Master Seidon 120M Liquid CPU Cooler stacks ups and how Cooler Master's design sets them apart. Before we move forward let's get to know Cooler Master a little better.
