Antec Announces Updated Kühler H2O Liquid CPU Cooler Line

New Kühler H2O 650-950-1250 deliver powerful cooling at an economical price Antec, a global leader in high-performance computer enclosures, power supplies, and mobile accessories today announces a radical update to the award winning Kühler H2O liquid cooling series, the new Kühler H2O 650, 950 & 1250. The new Kühler H2O 650 features a complete transformation in architecture and CPU cooling performance. Unlike traditional liquid cooling systems, this self-contained unit comes prefilled and requires no maintenance. The Kühler H2O 650 uses an extra large pump to circulate more coolant through optimized water channels, while a powerful fan pushes air through directional diffusor and channels it through the radiator for optimal cooling. The Antec liquid CPU cooler has integrated firmware to automatically adjust fan speed and change RGB LED color based on temperature. In addition to class-leading performance, the Kühler H2O 650 includes a newly designed universal mounting bracket that works with either Intel or AMD chipsets to make installation quick and simple. The Kühler H2O 650 CPU cooler takes any PC’s Quiet Computing™ to the next level with liquid cooling performance at a price that rivals even aftermarket air coolers. The new Kühler H2O 950 features a more robust radiator structure with double the height of the 650 for improved heat dissipation as well as two PWM fans, which are controlled by the new user-friendly Antec GRID™ CPU Cooler software.

CoolIT Selected to Host Birds of a Feather (BoF) Session at ISC13

CALGARY, Alberta, Canada – June 11, 2013 CoolIT Systems Inc., a leading supplier of direct contact liquid cooling (DCLC) solutions for high-performance desktops, enterprise servers and data centers has been selected to present a session titled “Building Liquid Cooling Technology Standards” at the International Supercomputing Show in Leipzig Germany on Tuesday June 18th from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM. The inspiration for this BoF session stems from the growing demand for liquid cooling in the data center. Experts agree that only liquid can deliver the necessary cooling efficiency to enable high density computing while reducing the power consumption needed to cool the data center. The benefits of liquid cooling have been documented for years but there has been some obstacles preventing widespread adoption. For example, System Integrators build servers, infrastructure companies build racks and cooling containment, and facility managers spec the building requirements. Each of these very different players contributes to an overall solution but there has been very little standardization of equipment other than rack dimensions and electrical connections. “As density targets, efficiency mandates and requirements for power reduction become increasingly difficult to meet with traditional cooling technologies, the industry has no choice but to consider alternatives,” said Geoff Lyon, CEO & CTO for CoolIT Systems. “It is the responsibility of industry experts to collabo...

Digital Storm Unveils VIRTUE – A Higher Standard in PC Gaming

FREMONT, Calif. – (June 11, 2013) – Digital Storm today unveiled VIRTUE, a performance gaming PC that exemplifies the system builder’s commitment to excellence and its customers. The stunning mid-tower desktop features a brushed aluminium and steel exterior, benchmarking crushing components and a large, upgrade friendly interior despite its relatively compact footprint. “We noticed there are not many pc manufacturers designing mid-tower gaming systems with the same ardor and attention that ultra-tower PCs receive,” said Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm’s Director of Product Development. “As its name suggests, VIRTUE represents a higher standard of PC gaming, both in terms of aesthetics and performance.” The VIRTUE release comes on the heels of two major component launches, Intel’s 4th Gen Haswell CPUs and NVIDIA’s GTX 700 series graphics cards, disproving the notion that a big desktop tower is required to house and cool a system as powerful as VIRTUE. “We strive to deliver a superior gaming experience with all our systems but knew we needed to raise the bar with VIRTUE,” said Kuruppu. “With two big component launches on the horizon it required a bit of patience, but being able to offer our customers faster, more efficient systems that run both cooler and quieter was well worth the wait.” VIRTUE supports all that bleeding edge hardware with an impressive liquid cooling system featuring up to five fans and a massive 240mm radiator. This allows VI...



 
 
 
 
 

SilverStone AR02

A few weeks ago we took a look at SilverStone's AR01 CPU cooler from their new Argon series of coolers. We were thoroughly impressed with its price, sound levels and overall performance. The Argon series is comprised of three coolers - the AR01, AR02 and the AR03. Each looks similar at first glance but is geared towards a different end user. The AR02 is the low man on the totem pole in the lineup (as far as size is concerned) but don't think that makes him not worthwhile. SilverStone kindly sent us the AR02 to check out, so let's get to it!
