Lian Li Galahad 360 liquid cooler review
A knight to fight off CPU heat

Today, we are reviewing an AIO cooler from Lian Li: the Galahad 360. Sir Galahad was the noblest and purest knight of the Round Table, son of Lancelot and Elaine: gained the Holy Grail. It’s a debut for this brand in that sector. Will it be a good one cooler? We’ve received a 360 mm variant of this LCS. There’s also 240 mm one, and you can get them in black (or rather silver in reality), or in white. The Lian Li Galahad 360 uses a very popular All-in-One formula, with the radiator, pump, and fans (3 x 120 mm in this case) coupled into a single, closed-loop. The three PWM (and RGB) fans are capable of moving up to 69.17 cubic feet of air per minute, at speeds ranging from 800 to 1,900 RPM.

   

 

 The Galahad 360 supports all major motherboard RGB systems, such as Asus Aura, as well as manual control via the included RGB controller. Eleven addressable RGB LEDs embedded in the pump head and 12 addressable RGB LEDs in each fan (a total of 47 for the GALAHAD AIO 360 and 35 LEDs for the GALAHAD AIO 240) allow users to customize the lighting effects to match their builds freely. With the included controller, switching between 17 lighting effects is a breeze. Modes 11~17 are monochrome colours (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and white).  The GALAHAD AIO is compatible with most mainstream CPU sockets such as Intel’s LGA 115X, LGA 1366, LGA 775, 1200, 2011, 2066 and AMD’s AM4.

 

 

 

 

The CPU block pump features an aluminium housing and a removable aluminium cap that shine and reflect your system’s lighting delicately on the surface to produce a variety of hues and bring a minimalistic elegance to your build. The radiator is of standard size, namely 397.5mm in length for the 360 mm model, with 2.7 cm in thickness and 12.2 cm in width. The radiator has aluminium fins instead of copper ones, which would have allowed for faster heat transfer (but also cost significantly more). The MSRP is 149 USD for the 360 mm version, and you get five years of warranty here. Now, let’s check what this AIO has to offer.

 

  

A quick reminder: we’ll also show you results for an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, not just the Intel Core i9 9900K this time.
