Lian Li Unveils Its First AIO Coolers, The Galahad 360 and 240 with ARGBby Gavin Bonshor on August 3, 2020 9:00 AM EST
Lian Li is highly regarded for its elegant and premium aluminium chassis, most recently its entry-level O11 Dynamic XL E-ATX case, which has become one of its most popular ranges. Its latest product marks the companies first foray into the liquid cooling market with the Galahad AIO series, with two different sizes available, including 240 and 360 mm.
Available in both black and white models, the Lian Li Galahad 360 and 240 mm all-in-one CPU coolers come supplied with addressable RGB LED 120 mm fans, with two supplied with the 240 mm and three with the 360 mm model. The housing of the radiator is constructed from aluminium, while the pump uses a simplistic design with an ARGB ring around the base. The Lian Li 120 mm ARGB fans supplied with both the Galahad models have a variable speed of 800 to 1900 RPM, can operate in PWM or DC mode, and have a rated airflow of 69.17 CFM.

Although Lian Li hasn't provided thermal capabilities of its coolers, both Galahad models come with a versatile mounting kit which includes support for Intel LGA115X, LGA1366, LGA775, and the latest LGA1200 socket. This also includes AMD's AM4 socket, although there is no support for AMD's older chipsets such as AM3 or FM2+. The pump itself is rated at 12 V DC, with Lian Li claiming the Galahad pump operates at less than 20 dBA.
The Lian Li Galahad AIO CPU coolers are currently available to purchase at Newegg, with an MSRP of $150 for the 360 mm version, and $120 for the 240 mm variant. It should be noted that although the pump and radiator unit is backed by a 5-year warranty, the included 120 mm cooling fans only come with a 2-year warranty.

YB1064 - Monday, August 3, 2020 - linkAre you guys going to test this? Looks like another Astek based unit. Surprising that it is competitively priced.
Powerocker - Tuesday, October 27, 2020 - linkIt’s not Asetek...
PeachNCream - Monday, August 3, 2020 - linkPaint and plastic color along with a little injection mold adjustment can turn one brand's product into another brand's product. Then we can argue amongst ourselves about which mechanically identical product is the best based on logo loyalty. 2020 is a great year for everyone!
Guspaz - Monday, August 3, 2020 - linkTo be fair, Asetek owns so many water cooling patents that it's very difficult for companies to make their own products from scratch. When they do decide to do that, they often have to resort to strange workarounds that hurt their effectiveness, like putting the pump in the middle of the rad.
Quantumz0d - Thursday, August 6, 2020 - linkLol, yeah true. But Asetek owns the patents so most of these coolers are their technology only. Except 2 brands, Arctic. Their latest AIO Arctic Liquid Freezer II is best in performance. There's EK's new AIO also which is good as well, EK AIO 360/240.
I would always prefer the Air coolers, Noctua DH15S is perfect and best, no issues with any leak or whatever, I just wish they do some update to that.
cyberguyz - Monday, August 3, 2020 - linkAnother "me too" asetek-based cooler. Yawn!
Operandi - Monday, August 3, 2020 - linkNah... Get back to making sexy AF all aluminum cases please and thanks.
Tom Sunday - Tuesday, August 11, 2020 - linkAmazing everybody is jumping on the bandwagon in fabricating AIO's. Even companies that have no business to be in the cooler business because of their previous offerings (capabilities) not even being close to this specialized technology. This must be a "BIG" profit or markup item for everybody by just simply branding any big profit hardware which comes along. In turn the Corsair series H150i PRO RGB 360mm AIO on Amazon is priced at $318. Some enthusiasts (puriests)may even replace the Corsair fans with Nuctua's which can drive the total AIO price then up to near $500. Then I hear that overclocking is about to become history! Will therefore the liquid cooling market loose its luster? Even at a cool Corsair $318 I surely have to hold my breath. However the AIO market to date has done a fantastic job in convincing or having "scared" the masses that liquid cooling is the only way to go. I truly wonder now where the AIO market is about to go or wind-up?
JerseySailor - Friday, May 28, 2021 - linkI added the 240 model to my new build with the Core i7-10700K, and am most happy with the results.
At stock CPU freqs and typical office work loads, I'm seeing mid 40 degree C temps. Running Prime95 to stress the 8 core CPU to the max, this cooler kept CPU temps to below 65 C.
Yep - I'm a happy camper with this unit.
