ASUS and Noctua Join Forces to Introduce an Outstanding Liquid Cooling Solution, Setting a New Standard in Performance.

ASUS, a leader in the manufacture of laptops, monitors, components and peripherals for PC, presents an extensive variety of products designed to satisfy all needs. Within their line of solutions to cool the CPU, they offer a variety of models that range from basic needs to the most demanding. Recently, they have added to their catalog the innovative ProArt LC 420, a new addition designed in collaboration with Noctua.

The ProArt LC 420 stands out as a specialized all-in-one liquid cooling option, aimed especially at professionals. Equipped with a 420 mm radiator and three 140 mm fans from the renowned Austrian manufacturer Noctua (PWM model NF-A14), this model offers exceptional performance. The fans, designed for industrial applications, ensure extremely quiet operation compared to other options on the market.

The ProArt LC 420 pump unit incorporates a high-performance three-layer motor, designed to maximize thermal dissipation with minimal noise. In addition to its efficient thermal performance, this liquid cooling solution includes a lighting system that provides detailed visual information on CPU performance such as temperature, performance, and usage. This lighting system can be customized and managed directly from the PC through the Aura Sync program.

With the collaboration between ASUS and Noctua, the ProArt LC 420 is presented as an advanced and versatile option for those looking for exceptional thermal performance, combined with innovative features and an efficient design for professional environments.

The ASUS ProArt LC 420 fan is distinguished by its versatility, with an adjustable revolution range between 800 and 2000 rpm. It provides an exceptional airflow of 107 CFM (equivalent to 182.5 cubic meters per hour) while maintaining surprisingly low noise levels, registering only 31.5 dBA. With a static pressure of 4.18 mm, the radiator has dimensions of 140 x 456 x 30 mm, while the CPU block has dimensions of 78 x 78 x 49 mm.

The cooling tube, with a length of 450 mm, stands out for its durability thanks to the braided mesh sleeve, which provides flexibility and wide compatibility with different configurations. This advanced ASUS heatsink is compatible with Intel (LGA 1700, 1200 and 115x) and AMD (AM5 and AM4) boards. It offers a solid 6-year warranty and is designed to integrate seamlessly with other ASUS ProArt family products such as graphics cards, displays and motherboards, ensuring optimal performance, exceptional design and minimal noise levels.

Although, so far, this new model is not available in the Spanish version of the ASUS website, information about its price and availability in the market is still pending. The English version also does not provide details on the dollar price.

Comparing liquid cooling with air cooling leads us to highlight the main advantage of the former: the significant reduction in noise levels. While it is true that liquid cooling offers superior acoustic performance, its main disadvantage lies in the economic aspect, as it usually has a considerably higher price compared to conventional air coolers.

In most cases, air coolers are more than adequate to meet the needs of most users, especially when the demands are not extremely high, such as in professional environments. If the noise generated by fans at full power is not a significant annoyance, air cooling may be a more affordable and practical option for many users. Ultimately, the choice between liquid and air cooling will depend on individual preferences, specific needs, and available budget.
