Conclusion: All-in-one liquid CPU coolers that are easy to install and more than adept at cooling modern processors are readily available from a growing list of manufacturers, and there isn't a lot to choose to between them. Throwing its hat into the ring, Zalman's LQ135 is a solid performer at the £65 price point.
Summary: Zalman released three water coolers in the hand of PC enthusiasts earlier this year, in this review Frostytech is testing out the LQ315 model - the middle child as it were. Like most water coolers on the market right now this system is designed and built for OEM use by Asetek.
, we wrote that it was an excellent liquid cooling system, with low price and excellent cost/benefit ratio. The Zalman LQ315 performed a little better than the simpler version, also with acceptable noise level, and easy installation. The blue LED embedded in the block is a plus for case modders.
The problem with the LQ315 is that it costs about 50% more than the LQ310, so it doesn’t share the excellent cost/benefit ratio.
