This is what I love about the component industry. You can never see it all and something will always surprise you. For instance, I knew Phanteks had gorgeous cases, but I was surprised to find out about their stunning CPU blocks as well. While they are fairly new, the Intel ones have been out for a few months now. Hey, at least I know about them now. Since the press release has all the details and beautiful images, check that out below. http://www.phanteks.com/PH-C350a.html (Click the image for larger sizes)
As performance has increased, traditional cooling solutions have struggled to keep up. Engineers have made air coolers larger, and added more fans and heat pipes in an effort to keep CPU temperatures in check. This approach has only taken us so far in the quest for the ultimate cooling solution. The popularity of custom water cooling has been on the rise among the elite and hardcore gamers. Others find it too bothersome or worrisome to add liquids where we have been taught not to put them. Over the last two years there has been an explosion of middle ground solutions called All in One Liquid (AIO) Cooling or Sealed Loop Systems. These have allowed the better cooling of water without the maintenance or fears of a fully custom water cooling system. Cooler Master has been successful with their previous outings in the seal loop arena but now they want to tackle the last hurdle for all AIO’s; expandability. The Glacer 240L Liquid CPU cooler is meant to address all of your current needs and those you may have in the future. That is a tall order for any CPU cooler but Cooler Master feels the Glacer 240L is up to the task. We will find out soon if they are correct.
