Not everyone gets into the consumer electronics business to make
friends, but Antec
and Asetek have put their rival instincts aside for
the betterment of both companies. Asetek just recently celebrated the
shipment of their 500,000 sealed liquid cooler, and now they're going to
be issuing yet another new product, but with the help of a company
that's fairly well known in the PSU/case/peripheral space.
Both Antec and Asetek
have jointly announced a new partnership, with the
pair working together on the new KÜHLER H2O series. This is slated to
be a flagship product, and one that is designed to operate quietly and
with "zero maintenance." The first model in the series, the KÜHLER H2O
620, features Asetek’s low-profile pump, and each one in the series will
utilize liquid temperature controlled fans. These new CPU coolers also
have Antec's 3-year limited warranty , and the 620 in particular will be
available at the end of this month for an undisclosed amount.
