The LEPA AquaChanger 240 AIO CPU Cooler, marketing or magnificence?

This particular watercooler comes with long list of features which sound interesting on paper but need to be tested to see how effective they really are.  The fans are very effective at pushing air through the radiator but [H]ard|OCP found them a bit loud, on the other hand the pump could not be heard at all so if you were to modify the fan speed you could have a very quiet cooler, at the cost of some performance.  The cooling performance was almost exactly the same as the SilverStone Tundra TD02-E but the LEPA is available for under $100 which makes it a better value while still retaining decent performance.

"LEPA comes to us today with its new AquaChanger 240 AIO CPU Cooler for review. LEPA lists a lot of cool sounding features like, Central Diffusing Passage Cold Plate, Protrusive Copper Base, Dual Convex Blade Fans, Ceramic Bearing Pump, and maybe the best is Anti-Leakage Tubing...because nobody likes leaky tubing."

have a 120mm version of this in a push pull-config config. Keeps a fx8350 in prime95 at ~57C with ambient at ~30C with fans at 1500rpm and making absolutely no sound. And for the price it's just amazing.

PS: fans can go up to 2k rpm.

Hmm when I seen it first I thought it's just copy of Enermax LiqMax2 240. There are however various differences between the two, but also few same (or 'surprisingly similar') features. Price. Also below 100USD. Both share also same characteristic about the pump. Quite noisy. And mounting bracket which nobody will convince otherwise are identical.

One thing I know about Enermax product is just idiotically rigid and inflexible tubing. Ah and of course use different fans than included in the box.

However it does offer good performance without busting bank account.
