XPG Levante 240 review. A new 240mm for XPG, the brand owned by Adata, which, with the new Levante, arrives in the mid-range
Il XPG manufacturerbrand of the largest Taiwanese giant needle, has recently released its new one on the market series heatsink Levanteit is a 240mm AIOand sets itself the mission to achieve gamut mediatrying to guarantee adequate performance to competitors.
The XPG Levante 240 AIO cooler comes with an aesthetic appearance not overly flashy, but still has some RGB traitsboth on the heatsink and on the fans themselves. Let’s get to the heart of the review, and find out if XPG has kept its promise with this product!
Design and Materials | Levante 240 review
XPG Levante arrives in a package complete with product information, supplied with the complete system and assembly kit, and obviously the two fans. The heatsink supports the majority of sockets in circulation of course, including Intel’s mainstream and HEDT systems and AMD’s AM4 platform.
The gaps between the fins are very tight, the radiator is strong and solid. As well as the rest of the building. In plastic the upper part of the Waterblock instead, and the surface of the same is made of copper, very simple, and without special processes. On the other hand, the lack of polishing treatment of the surface in contact with the CPU is not very aesthetic, in fact it shows the signs of industrial processing. The power and ARGB cables exit the pump at the same point, which makes wiring easy.
The fans are some Vento Pro 120 ARGB PWMand have an operating range from 600 to 2000 RPMexcellent in terms of quality in terms of airflow, which is equal to 61.5CFMless performing for static pressure instead, which is equal to 3.15mm H₂O.
Convenient assembly of the bracket for the motherboard, which does not cause any problems during installation.
Performance and conclusions | Levante 240 review
The platform on which we tested the cooler featured a CPU of the Ryzen 7000 series in particular a Ryzen 5 7600X connected to a motherboard Biostar X670E VALKYRIE, ed SSD XPG SPECTRIX S20G, GPU Nvidia RTX 2080.
The performance of this cooler certainly does not excel to classify it in a high performance range, but overall it has always managed to keep our processor in acceptable operating frequencies, without risking a serious bottleneck or even worse the total Freeze, the results obtained during the tests they scored indeed – with a Idle temperature equal to 18/19 – are Cinebench R23 a value swing of 77/75 degreesinstead side gaming su Warzone we recorded a temperature that ranged from 70 to 72 degrees. The test performed on Cinebench R23 it was conducted 5 times in a row, 5 minutes apart. All with one ambient temperature of 15/16 degrees.
The fans, on the other hand, aren’t the quietest in the operational phase present on the market, but they carry out their work without too many pretensions.
XPG has made overall a solid product with this Levante, but it doesn’t excel in any particular category, the cooling performance is good, but in line with air-cooled systems. On the noise side, in general it is not that bad, however, when the fans reach the 2000 RPM threshold (almost immediately in our case) it is not surprising if 40/45 dBA are touched. For your part, you will have a 5-year guarantee, which in any case is not a given.
That was all for the review of this XPG Levante 240. The competition in this area is not low, but it holds up well overall, also considering the energetic CPU to which we subjected this XPG Levante.
