    It is interesting but it is massive. I like LTT but he didnt use basic apple to apple protocol like using the same fans on all the coolers. Results were not that earth shattering. Also, hen he said it was not as bulky or somehow more elegant than the 360 AIO, Im not sure i agree with that.

    Final version is going to have another condenser tube, more fins, and be much thinner.

    Follow the link to the product page and take a look at the final specs and the company itself.

    This was pitched to us quite a while ago, never saw a reason to get overly excited.

    Was it by the same company? It looks like this company already has other thermosiphon products deployed in different areas and has decided to make products that computer enthusiasts can use.

    *slaps the side of a delta fan* This baby can move a lot of air. What's that you can't hear what I'm saying? That's ok, where we're going you don't need hearing.

    I hope they succeed and make a good product. More cooling solutions are a good thing...

    The specs for the updated/final version of the cooler state 1600/2200 rpm fans.

    With my current Noctua NH-D14 that I mounted high cfm Rosewill dual ball-bearing fans on, I have the motherboard control the fan speeds. When gaming I have headphones on and can't hear the fans anyway. When not gaming and not wearing my headphones the fans are silent.

    So I have no worries about the loudness of the fans.

    And yeah, I did pre-order one.

    Only thing I am going to have trouble with which will require some ducting with my current setup is that ,with my current case, the CPU is at the bottom of the case instead of the top. I will have to make ducting to have the hot air from the CPU cooler exhaust out the side of the case or else it will roast the back side of my video card.

    I may end up transferring everything over to the full tower Lian-Li (Rocket Fish branded) case I have that is just begging to be used. But I like my current (from 2005) Lian-Li case so who knows.

    You think delta fans are loud? Did you ever have one of those Slot-A Alpha P7125 coolers and upgrade to the higher end dual San-Ace 60mm fans. Those were ear-piercing loud and 11,000 rpm.

    Compatible Voltage: 12 Volts DC
    Amperage Draw: 0.67A
    Input Power: 8.04 Watts
    Speed: 11,000 RPM @ 12V DC
    Max. Air Flow: 49.4 CFM
    Noise: 53.0dB, Max. Static Pressure: 1.20” H₂O
    Materials: Housing and Impeller ~ Plastics (Flammability: UL94V-0)
    Bearing Type: Ball Bearing

    I went ahead and preordered one since I could always use more coolers and it's not much more than D15 and less than a CLC so getting one to play around with is not that much of an investment over what I'd normally pay anyway.

    It's ok to have a cooling fetish. I know I do. :D. I'm probably going to snag one of these to compare against my AIO for cooling just for the heck of it.

    Anyone who's worked in a data centre knows how loud delta fans can get.

    This 'new' cooler is almost a carbon coppy of MP-1240 (2x 120mm fans) rated 325w TDP and same kind of cooling CapTherm MP-1120 (1x 120mm fan) rated 275w TDP that I became aware of back in 2013 and were shown at CES 2014 and CES 2015.

    With single fan model MP-1120 being rated 275w TDP and two fan MP-1240 being rated 325w TDP they can desipate a lot of heat.

    Well, it couldn't have worked that well or been way to expensive to produce as the company's website as linked in that article is for sale...

    These numbers aren't earth shattering.. I have two regular heat pipe coolers, each rated for 320w, and 360w respectively with a single quiet fan.

    No surprise there. Company was started for the cooler and when cooler didn't sell it went out of business, like many other startup companies do.

    Indeed, nothing great and wonderous about it.

    There have been others of sane circulation concept using waterblock and radiator with hoses between them, like the Raijintek showed at Computex 2016.

    Difference between this and the old ones is it can be used vertically, they don't say the tech hasn't existed before. Since most people don't use horizontal orientation motherboards I can see why the old models never sold well.
