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.
