Lepa is a rather unknown brand at our borders but have quality products at very attractive prices. This that we present today is a good competition from other kits we love, the Enermax Liqmax, but these are still cheaper and bring a distinctive design that will be interesting experience for the first time. We know this brand of their food sources, but try one of their liquid cooling kits, and this is its latest model, is an experience. Let’s see if it is good or bad.
|Bomb:||2500rpm ceramic bearing|
|Ventiador:||Convex 120mm 2xDual|
This kit may cost us something to find but if we now give to Europe without much problem. Another thing is in local businesses. Cuesta, with its design of 240mm, less than 75 Euros making it by far the most economical kit with this size. The following is the Liqmax 240 Enermax and costs about 10% more than the Lepa.
This dual cooling kit body, 240mm radiator is certainly remarkable for its price and because according to the manufacturer has a dissipation of 350W . A performance that is in line with other systems of this size so why would not suspect data. What you see is whether it really is able to develop something that we demand all of a kit of this type it is to do with low-end fan. Many dissipation with minimal noise.
240x120mm radiator of Lepa Aquachanger 240 is aluminum with the usual circuit sheet in such radiators.Flat sheets through which the water and cross-linking thinner sheets the sheets creating a large heat exchange surface which is cooled by two 120mm fans. Fans Lepa has developed a custom wing design which increases the pressure and airflow. These fans can work at frequencies from 500 to 2300rpm so they have a range of frequencies, PWM, we can control easily from our motherboard. The kit also includes an adapter that can connect both fans the same connector plate. Each fan has a maximum consumption of 0.4A at 12V so they are less than 5w fan.
The pump is integrated in the heat exchange block. It has a working frequency of just over 2000rpm and also works with a Molex connector. The fixed frequency is logically and ceramic bearing guarantees an average life of more than 50000 hours.
Exchange plate is copper , which makes the system may have some galvanic corrosion over time (the radiator is completely aluminum), and combines with an embedded micro-laminate surface area increases the contact of the coolant with the surface micro-laminate. The base is attached to the pump with a system of screws on the surface.
Finally the tubes are designed to reduce evaporation to a total of four layers including a first, outermost impermeable layer, high density tube prevents leakage resistance mesh and a fourth layer, for protecting the above. The tube is manufactured in Germany.
Performance and noise
The pump is designed to reduce vibration, with precisely constant rotation to maintain good flow and stable operation. We can tailor your anchor any modern processor, any fairly recent socket supports both AMD platforms, including Intel. It even supports the new generation of Intel processors Skylake presented this week.
Fans of Lepa Aquachanger 240 have a wide spectrum of frequencies ranging from a very low 500-600rpm, perfect for keeping noise below 30dBA, to a maximum of 2200-2300rpm where noise exceeds 45dBA and according to our tests (they are both running at once). Typically, a good driver or a fairly modern plate, is that we find a very quiet operation and vibration free. The radiator can support up to four fans but the fact is that this double configuration think it’s more than enough to dispel any modern system with overclocking including keeping noise levels really acceptable. Both fans and pumps surprised by their efficiency taking into how cheap this kit.
The performance speaks for itself, here we leave our comparison chart. We tested this block both Intel and AMD processors, in fact our images you see mounted on the computer that are testing the latest AMD APU Godavari, with excellent results. Aesthetically perfect, at least for my taste, orderly and with a good performance in terms of performance and sound equipment.
Analysis and Conclusion
This kit costs less than 75 Euros, with a large radiator, which allows us to convert any processor, by demanding it in a fairly quiet even overclocking team . That adding to the spectacle that offers a double body kit think it’s worth the 20 Euros more it costs over a sink design 120mm.
With these prices and these qualities soon there will be few options for high-performance conventional heat sinks. Yields overlap, noise too, and finish for me is much more orderly and efficient in this type of solutions that remove heat from the case more directly. This product gives us an affordable option to access a simple solution to install and with excellent performance.
