Yesterday, Corsair Memory announced COOL, a new 120mm PC liquid cooling kit.
Fremont, California, January 27, 2005: Corsair Memory, Inc., a global leader in ultra-performance DDR memory modules for PC gamers and enthusiasts, today announced a water cooling kit that enables greater overclocking performance by cooling Intel and AMD processors far more efficiently than conventional heatsink/fan air cooling units.
Branded simply "COOL", this kit was designed for ultimate ease of installation; it can be installed in virtually any system in about an hour, with no need for power tools. The included RadBox allows the fan/radiator assembly to be mounted on 80mm, 100mm, or 120mm chassis fan openings. The kit is available in two flavors:
. CWC100-1000 supports PentiumT 4 Socket 478 and AthlonT 64 CPUs
. CWC100-1001 supports Pentium 4 LGA-775 and Athlon XP processors.
To develop this kit Corsair performed exhaustive testing on virtually every water cooling component available, then selected the combination of components that together delivered the top results. The complete kit includes a 120mm fan, radiator, CPU cold block with factory-clamped tubing, bay reservoir, 12-volt DC pump, and all necessary mounting hardware. Each component is the best in its class.
According to Eric Ackerson, Corsair COOL Product Manager, "this kit delivers impressive cooling efficiency that allowed Corsair Engineers to reach remarkable overclock speeds. But it's deceptively quiet."
Both kits are shipping now to Corsair resellers worldwide, and will be available for retail prices under $240. More information on this product can be found at http://www.corsairmemory.com/corsair/COOL_water.html
