If you remember back to 2013, shortly after Cooler Master launched their Seidon series of All In One CPU coolers they were hit with a lawsuit by Asetek. Asetek, one of the biggest developers of AIO cooler pump designs, brought suit claiming that CMI USA infringed on US Patent 8240362, as well as updated Patent 8245764.
Don’t get your hopes up NVIDIA is not coming out with an AIO cooling version of their GeForce GTX 980 graphics card. Japanese system builder Sycom decided to take matters into their own hands and have cut a corner out of the shroud on a reference GeForce GTX 980, removed the heatsink and replaced it with the Asetek 740GN water cooling unit.
About 3 weeks ago Asetek announced the “largest ever design win” for the company that would result in 2 – 4 million dollars of revenue from a undisclosed OEM customer. Well it turns out the customer is AMD. Pictures of a cooler shroud is doing its rounds on Chinese tech forums. The design is very similar to the design of the Radeon R9 295X2, but is designed for a single-GPU card.
Asetek has announced their largest ever design win today in a press release. The deal is with an undisclosed OEM customer (which will be secret for a while) and for an unnamed graphics liquid cooling solution all their own. This ambitious project is forecasting a prime cash flow to the company in the 2 to 4 million dollars range for revenue and shipping and it is scheduled to begin by the first half of 2015.
Swiftech announced today that they are withdrawing sales of their H220 Water Cooling Kit in the United States. This is probably why everyone we recommended the cooler to could not find it over the past month or so. The reason for the withdraw is that Asetek claims that the H220 CPU cooler infringes on their US patents 8,240,362 (the ’362 patent) and 8,245,764 (the ‘764 patent) and to cease selling, offering for sale and importing the H220 CPU cooler in the United States.
s many of you know Asetek is a manufacturer of closed-loop liquid cooling systems that are re-branded by several companies. They have filed a patent-infringement lawsuit against Cooler Master saying that Cooler Master has infringed upon patent numbers 8,240,362 and 8,245,764 held by Asetek. The Cooler Master products in question are the Seidon line of closed-loop CPU coolers.
Asetek Inc., the world’s leading supplier of liquid cooling solutions for computers, announced today that its hot water, direct-to-chip RackCDU liquid cooling systems will cool NVIDIA® Tesla® K20 GPU accelerators and that these cooling solutions will be on display at SC12.
Asetek Inc., the world’s leading supplier of liquid cooling for the computer industry and the inventor of sealed loop, all-in-one liquid cooling, today announced its fourth generation of products based on this patented technology. Asetek is simultaneously releasing the next generation of their flagship ChillControl™ software, giving computer enthusiasts greater control over acoustics tuning, temperature monitoring and cooling performance.
El Monte, CA – February 11, 2010 – iBUYPOWER, a leading innovator in gaming PCs, is excited to announce the first and only liquid cooling solution for the Thermaltake Level 10 enclosure. Working together, iBUYPOWER and Asetek engineers have developed a system that allows the mounting of an Asetek Liquid cooling system in the Level 10 Chassis from Thermaltake. The Levels 10 unique asymmetrical design features individual compartments for various system components, putting space at a premium and conflicts with standard mounting of liquid cooling systems. The adapted liquid cooling system in iBUYPOWER systems fits a 120mm Asetek LCLC system to the chassis.
