    News - Asetek and Antec to launch all-in-one liquid cooler

    Familiar-looking CPU cooling to come from an unfamiliar source.

    Re: News - Asetek and Antec to launch all-in-one liquid cooler

    One question about the following statement in the article:

    self-contained liquid cooling systems that pack the pump, radiator and CPU block into one easy to install package that should be able to keep up with the best air coolers on the market

    So, given that this seems to be about the same price as the best-of-breed air coolers (such as the Noctua NH-D14 that I bought last month), why should someone consider this rather than a b-o-b air cooler?

    Only thing I can see is if you've got a case that's too tight to accommodate the mega air-coolers, which tend to be big hunks o' metal. But then again, your air cooler can (usually?) also cool other components, which these watercoolers won't.

    Apologies if this is n00b-style question, I'm just curious.

    It's the intense adrenaline rush of knowing water is rushing around in your system. And it's tidier I suppose...

    It looks like Asetek made them a cooler with the same radiator as the H50 but same pump/block as the H70, the reason i chose the H50 over a better performing air cooler is greatly because of weight as before i had a ninja scythe full copper that came to about 1300g including the fans.

    I think for most people either one or more of the following things cause them to chose a cooler like this, weight, size, clearance around the CPU socket and reasonable performance for the cost.

    Using scan as an example the D14 comes in at £62.28 so it kind of fits well, using the H50 as an example at £55 it's not quite as good at cooling as the D14 (at least in most testing i have seen) but cost less.

    Aside from the size and weight considerations already mentioned the fact that it can dump most of the heat out the back of the case is a major plus.

    But I thought these water coolers suck air into the case as the air inside the case would likely be hot/warm and reduce the cooling potential.

    I was going to purchase an H50 but I think I'll wait for one of these to come out now.

    Well I guess you could configure it either way. If you have both a CPU cooler and graphics card that exhaust heat out the back then the temperature inside the case shouldn't be that much higher than ambient anyway. I don't own one of these coolers though so this is merely conjecture - take it with a pinch of salt.

    Either way it has to be better to have that flexibility than just having an air cooler that blows air from inside the case over a heatsink leaving the air inside the case afterwards as well.

    Most tower heatsinks blow the from the heatsink directly towards the rear of the case, where there'll always be at least one large exhaust fan (in systems where you'd be spending >£40 on a cooling solution), so the hot air is exhausted straight out of the back regardless.

    Hmm, I was comparing to the H70, which is more expensive than the D14, although even the H50 is merely £7 cheaper. Looking at it - the D14's pretty much sits betwixt H50 and H70.

    Actually my D14 is powerful enough that the thermal control on my motherboard often shuts down the rear fan and just relies on the D14's fan to move that hot air out of the case.

    Thanks all for the feedback (as the saying goes 'I'm better informed, but none the wiser!'). I think I'll stick with what I've got - although the 920 sounds like it could be a nice bit o' bling for next Christmas.

    Re: News - Asetek and Antec to launch all-in-one liquid cooler

    I think this has occurred due to Corsair doing deal with Coolit systems for new A60, looks like Corsair have new partnership so Asetek have partnered with Antec

    Re: News - Asetek and Antec to launch all-in-one liquid cooler

    I have the CoolIt ALC Vantage - mainly because it was shiny - but also because I use to have the Noctua, and the thing despite performing admirably left no space for cooling my RAM and weighed so much i thought it was going to bend my case! So this kind of system fixes this wee problem. Plus the cooling is pretty solid - not mind blowingly FANTASTIC - but solid (never goes above 67 on prime95) and suitably impressed with its overall quality. Although the one is this review...looks kinda...cheap no?

    Think it may help if changed the thermal paste to artic 5 instead of the compound already layered on it but i cant be arsed to change it now!

    Re: News - Asetek and Antec to launch all-in-one liquid cooler

    In order to achieve the best cooling delta, cold air should be brought in from outside the case, across the fans, and the case should have a top exhaust fan. Yes, it means that the components on your mobo will be a little warmer, but those components are rated to 105ºC, and you get the best CPU cooling potential out of your all in one water loop.
