G.SKILL ENKI 360 – test of efficient, but not perfect AIO
G.SKILL we mainly associate them with great RAM modules that not only look good, but also have great OC potential. However, each brand must be developed, which is why G.SKILL introduced at the end of last year the compact liquid cooling (AIO) CPU kits, i.e. ENKI. As you'd expect from RAM, this is by no means a clone Asetek, just something extraordinary and very efficient, after all, the name ENKI is also not without a coincidence here. Enki is the god of freshwater in Sumerian mythology, considered one of the three most powerful gods of these beliefs. The cooler has been specially designed to increase efficiency by increasing the number of water channels, hoses with a larger cross-section or finally a convex water block with additional server-grade thermal paste. Of course, there was also a block pump top illuminated with ARGB diodes. It sounds interesting? Then I invite you to the analysis and tests.
G.SKILL ENKI 360 is a large and efficient AIO cooling full of interesting solutions, but will it conquer the market?

Would be G.SKILL ENKI consists of three models with different sizes of heat sinks: 240 mm, 280 mm and 360 mm. The structures are based on aluminum coolers with a greater density of water channels, we also have larger hose cross-sections and a thicker wall to minimize the effect of liquid evaporation. The block pump is equipped with a liquid pump with increased efficiency and a convex structure, the so-called cold plate (block feet), the block itself has a colored ARGB illumination with the manufacturer's logo. 120 mm fans with a bearing were used hydraulic, controlled by PWM signal.
