The Zalman LQ315 is a mainstream liquid cooling system for processors. It has a 120 mm radiator with one 120 mm fan. Let’s test it.
Recently, we reviewed the Zalman LQ310, a less expensive version of this cooler. The main visible difference is the depth of the radiator, which is 1.1” (28 mm) thick on the LQ310 and 1.5” (38 mm) on the LQ315. The block is also taller at 1.26” tall (32 mm) versus 1.1” (28 mm) for the simpler model.
Figure 1 shows the box of the Zalman LQ315.
Figure 2 shows the contents of the box: the radiator-block set, fan, manual, and installation hardware.
