We decided to take the Liqtech TR4 apart, as we wanted to learn why its performance is so good. The inner chamber of the cooler revealed that the copper coldplate's microfins do extend all the way across the plate surface -- better than we'd anticipated -- and that fin density and pitch are comparable to high-quality Asetek units. We also found that TR20 screws permit full access to the chamber interior, where users could somewhat easily refill and maintain the closed loop.
