Watercooling We take a look at ID-Cooling's Frostflow 120L CPU liquid cooler. The asking price is very reasonable, but how about performance? Let's see.

Watercooling If i was to go out and visit any computer related store around where i live and i was to ask which types of CPU coolers they have available in their inventory right now chances are they will only have regular CPU air coolers and some AIO liquid CPU coolers. Unfortunately even now custom water cooling kits and parts are still considered niche hardware components in many places and that goes double for other types of cooling like waterchillers. Of course AIO liquid CPU coolers are reasonably priced, are easy to mount and offer very good cooling efficiency levels which in some cases can even compete with those produced by custom water cooling kits. Unfortunately however they don't support expandability and that has always been a serious drawback for enthusiasts, overclockers and even serious gamers. We did predict that eventually we'd see "hybrid" models designed after both AIO liquid CPU coolers and custom water cooling kits and shortly after Alphacool made their debut with the Eisberg line EK WaterBlocks just released their very own EK-XLC Predator line.

Watercooling Völlig unerwartet haben ARCTIC diesen Monat einen neuen Hybrid Kühler vorgestellt, der an die neuesten Grafikkarten angepasst wurde, den Accelero Hybrid III-140. Dieser kombiniert Wasser-Kühlungs-Technologie für den GPU mit einem 140 mm Lüfter, einer verbesserten Backplate für niedrigere RAM Temperaturen und einer VRM Heatsink mit einem 80 mm Lüfter für bessere Kühlleistung. Wie der Kühler abgeschnitten hat, könnt ihr im Test sehen.

Watercooling If you happen to be an enthusiast, hardcore gamer or even a professional chances are that one of the very first things you decide on when building a brand new system configuration is the type of CPU cooler to use. Unlike in the past today there are numerous high-end solutions available in the market for all types of users both in the form of massive dual heatsink CPU air coolers and 240/360mm AIO (All In One) liquid cooling kits. However for people who are really after the best cooling efficiency money can buy the only valid options are to opt either for a 360/420/480/520/580mm custom watercooling kit or one of the quite rare, bulky and more expensive Waterchiller/Freon systems. We may get a chance to test one or more of these Waterchiller/Freon systems really soon but until then we decided to take things a step further and instead of testing yet another ready watercooling kit we went ahead and made a custom one with parts by our friends over at Alphacool.
