This beast is perfect for gamers and also for those non-gamers who love to have a fast computer. Many users report it working impressively great with many overclocked CPUs. The build quality is great. Since it is a little bit bulky and bigger, it is perfect for mid to high tower builds and not for those mini-builds. You will receive enough mounting accessories for quickly mounting it in any case. The only flaw is that the fan way too noisy compared to other alternatives. In return, it delivers superior cooling performance.

It is an alternative option of Enermax LIQMAX II 240m with a smaller 120mm fan. It is ideal for limited builds with components that are less likely to generate an extensive amount of heat. It comes with a remote control that allows you to control the LED lighting adjustments easily. The cooling capacity is decent, and it comes with impressive RAM compatibility. If you think you do not need the 240mm beast, this can be a tiny budget and limited performance alternative.
