EVGA Releases CLC120 CL11 AIO CPU Cooler: Simple and Affordableby Joe Shields on February 27, 2018 4:30 PM EST

EVGA is no stranger to the CLC and AIO cooling market with numerous products already on the market from 120mm to 280mm CLC's currently available. The new offering in this segment is the CLC120 CL11 AIO. The CL11 is similar to the existing CLC120 except it does without a few bells and whistles such as RGB LEDs, and doesn't include fill ports or have expansion options as other competing products may have. It does bring to the table a less expensive entry point (by $30), has redesigned pump housing and smooth tubing, as well as fan EVGA says is designed to reduce noise & provide superior airflow.
The copper water block and pump assembly will fit Intel sockets LGA 115x, 1366, 2011, 2011v3, and 2066 sockets. AMD is not on the compatibility list for this specific cooler. The variable controlled fan allows for the fan speed (max. 1800 RPMs) to change based on coolant temperature while the pump is a constant-speed unit. The CL11 doesn’t offer other controls or monitoring features so two 3-pin fan headers are the only connections needed.
The radiator itself is 120mm (the only size available) and with the fan attached has a combined thickness of 2.1-inches so the system should fit in most cases with little issue. The new cooling block is said to offer improved flow rates and heat transfer surface area to increase cooling efficiency at a noise level of only 20db(A) maximum. The 120mm fan uses sleeve bearings and is rated to put out almost 59 CFM at 2.13mm-H20 at slightly over 32 db (A) which, if rated properly, should be a pretty quiet unit.
The CLC120 CL11 is priced at $59.99 on the EVGA website and is available now. This price is $30 less than the CLC120 with the RGB LEDs and higher speed fan(s) which could make it an attractive cooling solution for those who do not care for all the flare the other EVGA CLC options offer. If the price isn't enough, EVGA stands behind this product with a five-year warranty.

juxto - Tuesday, February 27, 2018 - linkHopefully not another loud crappy pump on the market that becomes the loudest idling device you have in your PC.
SquarePeg - Tuesday, February 27, 2018 - linkThis looks really good. $30 cheaper and no RGB lighting. Usually you have to pay extra for the privilege of not looking like a teenage fanboy.
SquarePeg - Tuesday, February 27, 2018 - linkOops, this was not meant to be a reply.
Alexvrb - Tuesday, February 27, 2018 - linkAgreed. You can have a full set of Noctua fans and at idle it won't matter if your pump rattles. Would love to see a CLC shootout that focuses on pump noise across the controllable PWM range.
juxto - Wednesday, February 28, 2018 - linkMe as well, you can replace fans easily enough if you're picky or you can adjust their noise level with a fan controller/motherboard. But the pump is forever.
Nagorak - Sunday, November 11, 2018 - linkYou can just use voltage control on the motherboard to turn down your pump speed if it makes noise at idle. I recently bought a AIO with a pump that is very loud at full speed and even louder at 90%. But at 80% it's barely audible. I go ahead and just run it at 50% at low temperatures and then ramp up to 80%, only going higher if temps get extreme.
Achaios - Wednesday, February 28, 2018 - linkΙ'd never buy a liquid CPU cooler.
Once I bought a Celsius S-36 tri-fan Swedish CPU cooler. Very happy with my purchase, I proceeded to unbox it and then opened up the case to start with the dismantling.
But then I decided to read the manual that came with the box and there, in block capital letters was the following disclaimer:
WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE LIQUID COOLER WON'T LEAK AND WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR SYSTEM RESULTING FOR A LEAK.
10 minutes later I had put the Liquid cooler up for sale on e-bay as NEW-OTHER. Never again.

Manch - Wednesday, February 28, 2018 - linkSo BS post to promote your youtube vid....got it.
Achaios - Friday, March 2, 2018 - linkVid is not mine. It is made by Bitwit and it has got, as of today, 797,000 views. It shows what happens to the PC's of people who are intellectually challenged enough to install watercooling.
Diji1 - Thursday, March 8, 2018 - linkYou seem to be intellectually challenged enough to take attention whoring for ad revenue Youtuber's videos seriously and then post them on a serious tech site.
