Earlier in the week, Asetek
showcased a prototype GPU cooler that did an excellent job of proving downright impressive. Now, Maingear is looking to do something similar. The company, which is best known for their pre-fab custom PCs, has teamed with CoolIT to engineer cooler, quieter and cheaper cooling systems for their desktops. The solution has a simple name: EPIC. EPIC stands for Enhanced Performance InterCooler, and there will be three different ones -- the SHIFT
desktop offers the exclusive EPIC 180, the F131 sports the EPIC 140 and the Vybe gets the EPIC 120.
EPIC 180 liquid cooling system sports a massive 180mm radiator which offers 20% cooler temperatures than a 120mm radiator, and the best part may possibly be this: customers that have this cooling solution will also be happy to hear it has a closed loop circuit design which requires no maintenance, so they don’t have to check on it for liquid at all. Ever. All three solutions are available now, and if you're spending a load on a custom gaming rig, it's probably worth it to spring for a decent cooling solution.
MAINGEAR HAILS THE NEW EPIC COOLING SYSTEM: OVERCLOCKING DONE RIGHT
MAINGEAR unleashes their EPIC liquid cooling solutions on all desktops which offer up to 20% cooler temperatures and is maintenance free.
Kenilworth, New Jersey – April 26, 2011 - MAINGEAR, an award-winning custom PC builder offering custom desktops, custom notebooks, pc workstations and media centers, is announcing the release of their exclusive MAINGEAR EPIC (Enhanced Performance InterCooler) liquid cooling solutions by CoolIT for their entire desktop lineup.
In tradition with their legacy of innovation and design, MAINGEAR has collaborated with CoolIT to design the EPIC line of CPU cooling systems, which are the first of their kind in existence. The MAINGEAR EPIC cooling solution provides a distinct advantage in all the problem areas of existing CPU cooling units: performance, loudness, and durability.
Key features are highlighted below:
The MAINGEAR EPIC 180 liquid cooling system sports a massive 180mm radiator which offers 20% cooler temperatures than a 120mm radiator. It outperforms all high end air coolers on the market today and goes toe to toe with hand built liquid cooling solutions.
The thermal resistance of the EPIC 180 is an incredible 0.075 degrees C/W (Celsius per watt), which means even an extremely overclocked CPU will have the heat dissipation needed to keep it cool and stable. The MAINGEAR EPIC 180 will outperform 120mm solutions increasing up to 20% performance while maintaining a fan speed of less than 1000 rpm.
Forward Thinking Design
The EPIC 180 liquid cooling system not only keeps the MAINGEAR SHIFT much cooler, but the streamlined design also shows the engineering and innovative thought process behind it. The copper material on the surface utilizes a patented cold plate with Microfin technology that allows maximum heat transfer between the CPU and the cooling system.
Affordable and Maintenance Free
Not only does the new EPIC cooling system outperform most hand built liquid cooling units out in the market today, the MAINGEAR EPIC 180 is also much more affordable, delivering greater results for less money.
Customers that have this cooling solution will also be happy to hear it has a closed loop circuit design which requires no maintenance, so they don’t have to check on it for liquid at all. Ever.
“The EPIC 180 is the most aggressive cooling system we've ever built and we were delighted to work with the MAINGEAR team to create a custom built system that delivers the ultimate in silent cooling.” Said Geoff Lyon, President and CEO of CoolIT Systems Inc. “MAINGEAR has been fearless in its no-holds-barred approach to building the fastest PC's in the world and it's our privilege to be an exclusive part of their product strategy.”
“The EPIC liquid cooling series that we are offering on our desktops is our testament to constantly innovate and develop ways to make faster, quieter and better products.” Said Wallace Santos, Founder and CEO of MAINGEAR. “Working with CoolIT was a perfect partnership where we were able to combine the best of engineering, functionality and design.”
The SHIFT custom pc will have the option of selecting the EPIC 180, while the F131 gaming pc will sport the EPIC 140 (available soon) and the Vybe will have the EPIC 120 cooling solutions respectively. The EPIC 180 and 120 are available today. All MAINGEAR EPIC liquid cooling systems are incredibility silent at idle, whisper quiet under load, and allow MAINGEAR custom built computers to be overclocked even more than ever.
