All-in-one closed loop water cooling systems for video cards are out there, but normally they are part of a special edition card much like ASUS’s ARES II or cards featuring Arctic’s Accelero Hybrid cooling solution. NZXT wants to change things with their new cooling adapter for video cards. It can take any Asetek-made all-in-one CPU watercooling system and make it work on your graphics card!
Water Cooling is awesome. There’s no doubt about it. Traditionally, it performs better than air cooling, it’s quieter, and looks amazing. But, it’s also expensive, can be complicated, and to the uninitiated, looks risky. So, what if you want the benefits of water cooling, whilst eliminating…well, every one of those drawbacks? Enter the self-contained water cooling unit.
The Thermaltake WATER 2.0 Performer and Pro are made by Asetek. They are both equipped with 120mm radiators, allowing effective mounting almost anywhere in a chassis that has 120mm fan mounting locations. Thermaltake provide you with two 120mm fans so that you’re able to do a push/pull set up, which is most welcome and much appreciated.
All-in-one watercooling systems are becoming quite common. We’ve seen them in many of the custom systems we have reviewed and many now you can get them from quite a few different companies. Thermaltake is calling their AIO systems Water 2.0 and today we are getting a first look at their entry system (Performer) and their mid-range system (Pro).

When you are building a home theater PC or small form factor PC it is really hard to find a CPU cooler that will not only fit, but provide adequate cooling as well. We know Noctua for making extremely large CPU coolers, some of the largest air coolers that we have seen actually. Today we are checking out one of their latest CPU coolers the NH-L12. What is interesting about it is that it is a low-profile cooler made for home theater PC’s and smaller systems. Will this cooler still provide the great cooling power we are used to seeing with Noctua CPU coolers? Read on to find out!
If you have been following the air CPU cooling scene for the past few years you have probably heard of Noctua. They makes some of the largest air cooling solutions available for your CPU. While their CPU coolers may be large, they do get the job done that is for sure! I was quite surprised when Noctua told me about their latest CPU cooler, the NH-L12. The reason I was so surprised was because it is a low-profile cooler! Interested? Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!
Zalman showed off its new coolers, including air coolers such as the entry-level 10X Optima and the high-end, first of its kind 12X, a triple-fan cooler, as well as its all-in-one liquid cooling solutions. We also looked at the new case, the Z11, which has two models and has a sleek, “alien” ship look about it. Zalman also displayed its latest line of power supplies, three levels of SSDs, mice, and video cards with built-in Zalman coolers. Colin Dean speaks to Jeff from Zalman in this video interview.
There are so many coolers out there, but they are all different types. They range from tower coolers to low profile to water cooling. Over the past few years we have seen a lot of different coolers and designs, but the ones that have been used most frequently are the AIO (all-in-one) water coolers, where everything is included into a closed loop while giving you the benefits of water cooling along with being affordable and easy to setup. Today we will be taking a look at the Antec Kuhler H2O 62O, which is a closed loop water cooling system which is produced by Asetek which is also the maker of the Corsair AIO water cooling systems. Let’s take a look…
One of the main things when ether building a new high end system or trying to make your current system run cooler is good thermal paste. There are a ton of brands out there with many different ones to choose from, ranging from just basic paste to thermal paste made out of crushed diamonds. Choosing the best thermal paste will allow you to run your computer cooler and for the overclockers to be able to push the CPU further while allowing the processor and the cooler or water cooling to do its job. Today we will be testing out the Arctic Cooling Arctic MX-4 Thermal Paste.
CoolIT Systems has been around for over a decade, and has been designing and building liquid and peltier cooling systems for several years. CoolIT has been concentrating on self-contained in-case system with OEM quality. Today I will be looking at their latest self-contained in-case CPU liquid cooling system, the Domino A.L.C. It is marketed towards the enthusiast that wants to liquid cool only the CPU, and desires a mount-it-and-forget-it self-contained system. Will the Domino A.L.C. impress? Read on to see!
