In addition to the PA602 housing, Asus has recently supplemented its range of ProArt products with a new processor cooler. As its name suggests, the ProArt LC 420 is an all-in-one water cooler that uses a 420mm radiator to dissipate heat. To combine optimal cooling performance with relatively low noise production, this model is supplied with three 140mm fans from Noctua.
The cooler is completely covered in black.
Specifically, this concerns the black NF-A14 IndustrialPPC 2000 PWM, which offers a rotation speed of 800 to 2,000 rpm. This unit should be able to deliver up to 107 cfm of airflow and 4.18 mm H2O of static pressure, while the sound pressure should not exceed 31.5 dBA. No concrete specifications are released regarding the pump, other than the fact that it has “an advanced three-phase design”.
The housing of the pump block contains lighting that can display all kinds of information via Asus software. The manufacturer mentions the system load as an example, as well as the fan speeds or the temperature of the CPU or GPU. The water is drained through 450 mm long hoses with braided sleeves, so it can also be used in larger cabinets without any problems.
