The name might fool you, but Optimus designs watercoolers for Intel's LGA 115X and 20XX sockets and their V1 Silver is the initial offering to the public, and of reviewers of course. The cooler is designed with 0.005" fins and 0.004" channels, with directional water flow which is the only challenge when installing, otherwise [H]ard|OCP were very impressed with the ease in which the V1 was installed. That said, [H] greatly improved the performance of the cooler by adding heavier springs; doing so allowed this cooler to surpass the XSPC RayStorm Neo and take the Gold at the end of the review. Check out the full review, plus a strip show, right here.
"Optimus Water Cooling may be a company that you are not familiar with. That is because this is its first publicly available computer water cooling product in retail. Optimus is a US company building products made and sourced right here in the good ole US of A. We just took delivery of it new V1 Silver water block for Intel sockets."
