What you need to know
- Lian Li launched its new Galahad AIO CPU coolers.
- The new AIO coolers are available with either 240mm or 360mm radiators.
- They're available today starting at $120 (opens in new tab).
Lian Li is probably best known for producing some of the most premium PC chassis around. It's not the most affordable brand either, which makes the launch of its first all-in-one (AIO) CPU coolers rather interesting. That's right, Lian Li is now well and truly in the CPU cooling game with its very own AIO line-up under the name Galahad.
So what are we looking at with the new Galahad AIO coolers from Lian Li? The radiators themselves are made from aluminum and plastic and come in the aforementioned 240mm and 360mm sizes. Lian Li uses the same 120mm fans with both variants of the AIO that can go up to 1,900 RPM and produce 69.17 CFM of airflow.
The pump on the CPU block is rated for 70,000 hours with a noise output of no higher than 20dBA, and can be hooked up to a CPU on AM4 for AMD or LGA 115X, LGA 1366, LGA 775, LGA 1200, LGA 2011, and LGA 2066 for Intel. Warranty for the Galahad from Lian Li will last for up to five years, though the fans are limited to just two.
Air coolers are pretty good, but they don't match up to AIO coolers like the Galahad when it comes to overclocking. Availability commences today and you can find the 240mm in black and white for $120 or the 360mm in the same colors for $150.
The 240mm Galahad AIO from Lian Li is perfectly sized for most CPUs. Whether you're rocking an Intel Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 7, this cooler will be able to handle them without issue.
The 360mm version of the Lian Li Galahad is much like the 240mm, but with an extended radiator with space for an additional 120mm fan. This extra surface area and fan will make a difference in the level of thermals the cooler can handle, ideal for overclocking.

Lian Li may not be cheap but my home server and gaming rig are in lian Li towers that are at least 16 years old.
