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.
Sapphire released their latest Radeon HD 7990 ATOMIC Graphics card at Computex 13. Most of the details regarding two were kept a secret until now. Expreview have managed to get the technical details of the Radeon HD 7990 ATOMIC graphics card along with complete detailed shots of the PCB and the water cooler that comes along with the shipment.
One of the finest water cooling gear manufacturer, EK Water Blocks, is very excited to reveal the latest EK-HD Tube and EK-HD Adapter series products. The usage of solid acrylic tubes in PC water cooling systems is well accepted by the designers. EKWB has replied very well to the requirements of users and therefore has high hopes of success with launching its new products.
EK Water Blocks has just introduced two new complete liquid cooling solutions for the Gigabyte Z87X-OC and Z87X-OC Force motherboards. These are of course Gigabyte’s enthusiast overclocking motherboards based on the latest Z87 chipset and support Intel’s 4th Generation Core Haswell processors. Because these are overclocking boards it makes sense for EK to make water blocks for them.
Not long ago we took a serious look at one of Corsair’s most promising closed loop coolers, the H80i. It performed very well for a single 120mm radiator and left us wondering; if this is how well the H80i does, how will the H100i perform when it has an additional 120mm of rad space? Without further speculation, let’s get down to business shall we and see if the H100i can stand with the exceptional, or if you should pass on this one.
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Gonzalo Galvan’s Pipe Fusion build. Here is what he had to say about it: It’s my second project, but the first with such dedication, at first were some simple changes but slowly began to appear new ideas that led me to change the entire interior to adapt to the watercooling. I am very happy with the mod to be better than I expected.
We’re currently on a hot streak of XSPC watercooling components. So far we’ve looked at a full loop kit, an upgraded radiator, and an external radiator stand. Today’s review will round out that group of excellently performing PC cooling components with the XSPC Razer GTX690 full cover water block for the GTX 690 Graphics Card. Follow along as we find out if this block can keep our dual chip GPU as cool as this block looks.
One of the biggest limiting factors in what you can do with watercooling is how much room you have in your case. With so much equipment to pack in for watercooling alone, space ends up being one of the chief concerns for builders and modders. And the single biggest limiting factor: how much radiator one can fit. Radiators are large, bulky, and inflexible in how they need to be installed. This can easily lead to the builder having to sacrifice cooling surface for space. There is a solution to this problem though; external radiator stands. And if you have chosen to use XSPC’s AX series of radiators, then you’re in luck. Today we will be looking at the AX Radiator Desk Stand from XSPC.
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!
While Antec may have been one of the first to get into the all-in-one cooling game, their units proved to be “just ok” and nothing to really write home about. Well at Computex this are unveiling two new all-in-one watercooling unit, the Kühler H2O 1250 and Kühler H2O 650. Both coolers support the latest CPU socket types which include LGA115x, LGA1366, LGA2011, AM3+/AM3, and FM2/FM1.
