Thermaltake Introduces The Xpressar RCS100

Thermaltake is ready to formally introduce its Xpressar RCS100 Micro Refrigeration Cooling System, which was first shown off at Computex in June. If you haven't yet seen the Xpressar RCS100, it is somewhat similar to the famed VapoChill Vapor Phase-Change Cooling systems we have shown you a few occasions in the past, but Thermaltake's offering differs in that it utilizes a DC Inverter type micro compressor to cool the PC. In fact, Thermaltake is claiming to be the first to use such a design.

To quote Thermaltake, the company summarized the Xpressar as "... a micro vapor-compression refrigeration system. The vapor-compression refrigeration system has been the most widely used method for air-conditioning of large public buildings, private residences, hotels, hospitals, theaters, restaurants and automobiles. It uses a circulating liquid refrigerant as the medium which absorbs and removes heat from the space to be cooled and subsequently rejects that heat elsewhere."


According to the company, the Xpressar RCS100 can cool a CPU 20'C lower than liquid cooling, so unlike the more powerful VapoChill sub-zero temperatures are out of the equation. Thermaltake also says the Xpressar RCS100 is equipped with a custom controller to prevent condensation, and that the unit has been tested and is compatible with a limited range of Gigabyte, MSI, and Asus motherboards. Although, we suspect the Xpressar RCS100 will be compatible with many other motherboards as well, but they have not been tested just yet.
