ID-COOLING Releases the Hunter Duet AIO Cooling Unit with Two Integrated Pumps

The longer AIOs stick around, it seems that companies find more ways to try and “differentiate” themselves from the competition. You’re probably thinking at first glance that two pumps in one loop is just another hype train to sell units, but once you discover that the second pump is built entirely for a GPU, then everything begins to make sense. What ID-COOLING is trying with a built in CPU and GPU pump on the Hunter Duet is a good idea, but there’s one potential issue that could arise and only time will tell. The great thing about the AIO market is it’s introducing new ideas to consumers in ways that are much easier, and more cost efficient, than custom liquid loops. With the Hunter Duet, you have a much simpler method to introduce consumers to liquid cooling a graphics cards than on a custom loop. Normally, you would have to buy a properly fitted block and fittings that can cost almost as much as the entire ID-COOLING unit. The concept is great but there could be a potential problem that I hope the design team has taken into account. In my journey with trying to make the Cooler Master Glacer 240l work for my system, I came across a design issue that stemmed from how the pump and reservoir was designed. In short, the loop wasn’t balancing out the liquid pressure on both sides of the pump properly which would cause it to burn out prematurely (usually lasting 1-2 months tops). Due to the fact that one pump will be pumping directly into ...
