Xilence LiQuRizer LQ360 Review

Introduction

Featuring their Redwing Fans, Xilence's LiQuRizer LQ360 promises to be both a powerful cooling machine and a retro-look with actual color instead of the ever-present RGB. Let's see how it turned out!

 

Positive

  • Excellent Cooling Performance
  • Very good Noise-To-Performance Ratio
  • Best in Class Price-to-Performance

Neutral

  • 3-Pin Header for Pump
  • No RGB

Negative

What's in the Box?

xilence-lq360-box

 

Xilence's LiQuRizer LQ360 comes in the usual AIO carton box featuring a couple of product images and a short introduction in form of a spec sheet.

Once the box is opened, we will find the following items inside:

  • Xilence LiQuRizer LQ360
  • 3x Redwing 120mm Fans
  • 1-3 PWM Splitter
  • Installation Hardware AMD/Intel
  • 4-Pin to Sata Power adapter

Compatibility

xilence-lq360-compatibility

 

Due to Xilence's LiQuRizer not being the newest AIO Liquid Cooler out there, it still comes with some legacy support and needs a bit of refinement to get to the newest standard.

As of right now, we're still unaware of any upcoming LGA 1700 support.

 

Down below we attached a full compatibility list:

AMD Intel
AM4 LGA 1200
AM3/+ LGA 1366
AM2/+ LGA 115x
FM2/+ LGA 2011
FM1 LGA 2066

Individual Components

Waterblock/Pump

xilence-lq360-pump

 

The LiQuRizer's Waterblock is kept pretty simple. A white (shining) company name cutout representing who made the AIO. The lights that are shining through the company name will start to shine as the Pump is connected to power.

 

xilence-lq360-base

 

The base of the water block is designed slightly differently than we're used to. Instead of being an extremely polished copper base, the LiQuRizer's copper base is slightly texturized, creating a carve-like structure on the complete base.

Tubes

xilence-lq360-tubes

 

The tubes on the LiQuRizer are 475mm long, making it very comfortable to install.

Radiator

xilence-lq360-radiator

 

The radiator in use has the usual 27mm thickness.

Fan

xilence-lq360-fan

 

For the LiQuRizer, Xilence's decided to use slightly upgraded versions of their RedWing Fans. Instead of the independently available 1500RPM models, the Redwings used on the LiQuRizer are spinning at 1600RPM while pushing 70CFM. Unfortunately, no information is known about their Static Pressure.

Appearance

xilence-lq360-design

 

The LiQuRizer's Design is clearly something special considering what is usually released onto the market nowadays. By using their RedWing Fans that come with an actual color instead of some light show, the LiQuRizer may not fit into every build. But to whoever plans to go with such an approach, we can confirm that in reality, the design does not come across as cheap, but rather clean and distinct.

 

The Water block pump cover of the LiQuRizer has a very simple design using only the company logo.

Overall, although the AIO uses Fans that are almost completely covered in red paint, we were surprised to find that the LiQuRizer is still coming across as simple, and not as imposing as we assumed.

Benchmarks

We tested on our usual benchmark setup using a 3900x.

 

xilence-lq360-benchmark1

 

While letting the Fans of the LiQuRizer spin at 100%, it managed to keep the 3900x at 46°C above ambient.

 

Highly surprising to us,  the LiQuRizer managed to match the way bigger Arctic Liquid Freezer 360 ARGB's performance.

 

xilence-lq360-benchmark2

 

After Noise-Normalizing our results, we found that although the LiQuRizer doesn't start as quiet as any Arctic Liquid Freezer, it quickly managed to catch up, and stayed slightly behind the Liquid Freezer 360 ARGB.

Conclusion

xilence-lq360-design4

 

Overall, Xilence's LiQuRizer LQ360 was a big surprise to use.

Not only was the design better received than we believed prior to actually seeing it, but the performance it managed to deliver was excellent.

 

xilence-lq360-design7

 

Being an AIO with its performance on the level of an Arctic Liquid Freezer 360 ARGB, and its Noise-To-Performance ratio just slightly behind, the LiQuRizer is clearly an underappreciated piece of cooling potential.

Even more shocking is the fact that the LiQuRizer is currently available for around 15-20€ less than its Arctic counterpart.

This makes the LiQuRizer -the- best in class in Price-to-Performance.

 

xilence-lq360-design9

 

Due to the LiQuRizer's excellent performance, and it's refreshing design, we can only recommend this cooler for any consumer-grade cpu.
