Asetek and Antec have announced that the two firms have teamed up to offer a new liquid cooled CPU cooling solution that will out perform air coolers by up to 20% and is easy to install and maintain. The new system is called the Kuhler H2O 620 and is billed as a zero maintenance cooling solution.
A geek has decided to take cooling his PC to a new extreme and use the cold winter air outside to keep his rig chilly. The way he went about it is easy enough, even if there are some apparent issues with the system.
Evercool has launched a new notebook cooling solution aimed at laptop gamers called the Battle Hero. The device is an angled notebook cooler that you set heat generating gaming notebooks on. It is compatible with notebooks from 9-inches to 15-inches.
When your product promises to do one thing and do it well, you're potentially setting yourself up for a whole lot of criticism if the reality doesn't match up to the sales claims. Latest to enter the arena is the ThermaPAK Laptop Cooling HeatShift Pad; according to ThermaPAK slotting the pad under your notebook will result in better cooling than any fan-based rival can manage.

NZXT announced a brand new laptop cooler back in May called the Cryo S but now you can get your hands on it. and this thing is perfect for those looking for a high performance cooling option that is reliable and really gets the job done.
Well this is pretty cool! It seems a company called Tessera is working on a new system that uses ionic-cooling for cooling down hot laptops that are running at faster and faster speeds. This new cooling idea might be able to offer 30% more cooling than a standard fan according to Tessera and the University of Washington.
The added bonus is it uses half the power. And with no moving parts, there's less likelihood of breakdown and noise. During the demonstration of this new technology, the cooler was put by a vent in a notebook. Then, pipes that are filled with liquid pull the heat away from the chipset and move it to the ionic system.
The system contains two electrodes, one with ionizing air molecules, the other with a receiver for the molecules. As these ions move from one spot to the other, this causes neutral air to move across hot areas, making for cooling. This is still a ways off from being included in your next notebook, but it's an interesting technology that we might see as soon as next year.
NZXT announced their new Cryo S today, a notebook cooler that's meant to keep your gaming notebook cool and allow for the best possible performance. The cooler is made from brushed aluminum and it's sure to compliment your gaming set up well.
Now this is "cool." Ugh, that was an awful pun. The Dell XPS 625 and XPS 630 have just gotten a liquid cooling option added to their specs in place of the standard fan-cooling option.
The Asetek liquid cooling system provides for a more even cooling of the processor and makes overclocking a much more versatile possibility for users that really want to get the most out of their systems.
This cooling option also reduces the noise, as there's no loud fan noise to contend with. Since both of these computers include the Intel Core 2 Extreme and are unlocked, making speed boosts much easier, having a stronger cooling option just makes sense. To add the Asetek liquid cooling option, it will cost you nearly $120 extra on top of the $899 and $1,099 priced XPS 625 and XPS 630 gaming towers. The new option will be available by the end of the month.
I'm all for added laptop gadgets, and there's probably none so useful as the cooling pad. Logitech is known for making pretty good accessories, so my interest was piqued when I learned the company released their Cooling Pad N100 today.
CoolIT Systems have announced a low-cost water-cooling setup, promising plug & play installation for just $79. The Domino Advanced Liquid Cooling (ALC) is compatible with both Intel and AMD processors including Intel’s next-gen Nehalem-based Core i7, is "whisper quiet" and has an integrated LCD display with audio alerts should something go wrong.
