Lian Li Galahad II/GA II Trinity 360 CPU Liquid Cooler Review
Thermal Testing – How does the Lian Li Galahad II perform?
As always, our CPU cooler testing has been conducted on an overclocked i9-9900K that is clocked at 4.8GHz at 1.2V. Using this configuration, we test the thermals of our processor using various CPU cooler under heavy loads under OCCT for 30 minutes. This testing is repeated at various fan RPMs, allowing us to create the chart below.Â
Sadly, we were not able to do our usual 1000 RPM and 600 RPM fan speed tests with this AIO, as we found that fan speeds fluctuated significantly when trying to control their speeds using our usual software. Perhaps this was due to the daisy-chained nature of these fans, or some other issue. That said, our standard 1500 RPM and max RPM tests ran without any issues, so those results are available below.Â
While it is not the best performing AIO that we have reviewed this year, Lian Li’s Galahad II Trinity does deliver strong results. Overall, thermals are around three degrees higher than our best performing AIO at maximum fan speeds, which is a good result for what is Lian Li’s most budget-oriented AIO. Remember, Lian Li have also created a Galahad II Trinity Performance AIO, which features an improved radiator, a larger pump, and improved fans. With the standard Galahad delivering the results below, we are very interested in seeing its performance-oriented incarnation.Â Â
Conclusion – A dazzling cooler with disappointing thermals
