It has been a few weeks since our last amazing giveaway, so it's time to dial things up a few notches and offer something truly incredible to all of you. Our friends at Asetek are giving away a handful of powerful Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition gaming PCs, which are liquid cooled by Asetek-powered closed-loop AIO CPU coolers, and they’ve chosen us as the launch point for their first system giveaway! Asetek pioneered the All-In-One liquid cooler some 20-years ago and currently enjoys over 90% market share in the space currently.  Up for grabs this time around is an awesome, fully decked-out Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition gaming PC (our full review), packing an AMD Ryzen...

With its Radeon Fury X, AMD delivers a card that offers top-rate performance along with cool temperatures even under immense stress. And in ideal scenarios, it's also pretty quiet. As we noted in our review though, some Fury X cards originally suffered from pump whine, and that was a problem that would plague AMD for the following months. We're at a point now where you can feel confident that a Fury X you purchase today isn't going to exhibit that issue, but that incident still managed to put a damper on AMD's otherwise impressive launch. Well, just as things were beginning to smooth out, GamersNexus reports that another speed bump has come along, presenting itself in the form of cooler-maker... Read more...
All-in-one liquid cooled CPU coolers seem to be a dime a dozen lately, but at the core, many of the designs borrow heavily from those of Asetek. In fact, many coolers out there produced by other companies are actually licensed from Asetek directly. So when a company comes along and offers a similar design without licensing, action needs to be taken. Last year, Asetek won its case against Cooler Master for infringing on its design, and the courts awarded Asetek a 14.5% royalty rate thanks to it. Cooler Master then demanded a new trial, but things haven't gone according to its plan. The courts still agree with Asetek, and as punishment have increased the royalty rate Cooler Master has to pay to... Read more...
Multiple motherboard manufacturers are warning that precipitously rising HDD prices will impact their sales. Gigabyte has issued guidance that it now expects Q4 shipments to fall by 20 -25 percent, while Asustek predicts a much smaller decline of ~five percent. Analysts believe Asus is underestimating the impact of the price increases, and think the company's sales could fall as much as ten percent. This would be in line with guidance from MSI, ECS, and Asrock. Exposure to the shortage will vary depending on the degree to which a manufacturer relies on retail sales and the price points of their various products. The impact on budget boards in the retail channel, for example, is likely to be catastrophic.... Read more...
PNY today announced it's new all-in-one Liquid Coold Graphics series. Kicking off the new series are a pair of XLR8 GeForce GTX 580 videocards, both of which sport an integrated liquid cooling solution from Asetek that's stupid-simple to install in your case. What separates the two cards is that one of them comes with an additional CPU block. "Designed to increase performance while reducing noise and temperature, PNY’s Liquid Cooled Graphics offers the fastest factory-overclocked card currently on the market at 857 MHz," said Nicholas Mauro, senior marketing manager, PC components for PNY. "The simple all-in-one design offers a powerful, yet easy to install and cost-effective gaming solution... Read more...
Asetek and cooling, two names that seem to always go together. Now, you can add a third: PNY. That company has teamed up with Asetek in order to "revolutionize" graphics card liquid cooling, with the goal to deliver liquid-cooled, high-end graphics cards that far outperform equivalent air cooled models graphically, thermally and acoustically. The resulting extreme performance PNY graphics cards will come out-of-the box with an Asetek sealed water cooler already attached, making the solution very simple to install, maintenance-free and extremely reliable. In other words, PNY will be using Asetek's heralded cooling solutions on their own cards, and we're guessing Asetek won't be satisfied with... Read more...
When it comes to enhancing PC performance, no tweak or mod is too small to consider. Asetek is well-known for their dabbling in liquid cooling, and the company announced earlier in the year that they would soon be releasing a CPU cooler. Now, they've assembled a video to showcase the liquid cooled PNY XLR8 GTX prototype, and it's looking mighty impressive. You may wonder if your GPU needs a cooler; if that's you, it probably doesn't. But if you're the kind of person who can't stop overclocking, well, you know you're already licking your chops. Have a look at the video if you're okay with a tease -- the latest still shows this on track for shipment "later this year" at an undisclosed price.... Read more...
Remember the WaterChill cooler brand from Asetek? It's back! The line may have vanished in recent years, but at the CeBIT trade show in Germany, Asetek has re-released it. We're guessing that hardware overclocking fans just missed the range of products, and now an ultra-extreme liquid CPU cooler is being launched in the WaterChill line. It's the WaterChill 2011C, and highlights include a low profile pump with third-generation coldplate technology and advanced liquid temperature fan control, coupled with a massive 240mm x 120mm radiator and four 120mm PWM fans. The 2011C also includes the company’s newly-enhanced ChillControl performance monitoring, cooling control software. These new chillers... Read more...

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,... Read more...
If you live in the northern part of the U.S., nature is doing the bulk of the cooling these days. But what about inside of your PC case? Unless you're funneling snow into there (safely, if that's even possible), the area in and around your CPU/GPU is probably still toasty. If you've been looking to overclock, but need some better cooling options before diving in, Asetek has exactly what you need. The company is today introducing new 92mm liquid CPU coolers, described as such. The 545LC is a single exhaust port, single-CPU cooler that supports high performance gaming PCs and workstations, utilizing chassis with 92mm fans, while the 565LX is a dual exhaust port, single-CPU cooler that supports...

As far as big names go, Asetek is a fairly large name in the cooling solution industry. The company has loads of water and fan-based cooling solutions for pretty much anything within a PC, and their latest project is quite possibly the most interesting PC we've seen in some time. Origin's 'Big O' rivals that, but we digress. Asetek's cooling solution is really only half of the story with QUO's new MAXQ2 computer. It's a new tower that promises to offer something that no HP, Lenovo or Dell will ever offer: true OS X support. We have seen Mac clones in the past, but usually Apple shuts them down before they have time to get any hardware out of the door. QUO claims that their new machine was created... Read more...

More details are below. iBUYPOWER Redesigns Extreme Liquid Cooled, Overclock-ready Paladin XLC Line, featuring the Futuristic... Read more...
Asetek and liquid cooling solutions go hand-in-hand; the company has been in the business of keeping gaming rigs cool for years now, and they're one of the most respected names in the sector. So what's the big fuss here? Well, Asetek has really gone above and beyond with this one: a new all-in-one liquid cooled prototype machine that's far, far more powerful than any other AIO we have seen in the past. To date, there aren't any pre-fabricated all-in-one PCs that utilize liquid cooling and high-end components. It's definitely a niche, and we suspect that has kept companies from entering this market full-on. But Asetek sees an opportunity here, and now that we really think about it, we sort of...

The Level 10 case has almost taken on a life of its own. Just mention "Level 10" within PC enthusiast circles, and most of the will likely know exactly what you're talking about. It's easily one of the most innovative PC enclosures that we've seen in years, and while it's certainly expensive, those in the position to buy one and showcase it should certainly treat it--and everything within it--with care.In order to do so, you might want to consider a top notch cooling solution, and the folks at Asetek certainly have experience in that department. As of today iBuyPower, which is the exclusive home to buying the case alone, has partnered with Asetek to develop the "first and only liquid cooling... Read more...

Just in case you missed the new link at the top of the home page, we're here to let you know that we have just posted a new article in which we evaluate the features and performance of the Asetek LCLC, Low Cost Liquid Cooling system.  The LCLC may resemble other water cooling setups but it provides many features that set it apart from the pack.  Asetek has attempted to address nearly all of the traditional disadvantages of water cooling compared to air cooling.  First off, the LCLC is a completely sealed system, which means it comes completely pre-assembled.  This eliminates issues of assembly error and makes installation simpler.  A non-toxic, non-flammable liquid and...

Water cooling has traditionally been considered an extreme solution, pursued by enthusiasts looking for the best cooling performance to squeeze every last drop of performance from their systems. For a long time this wasn't far from the truth and you were unlikely to find a water cooling setup that wasn't hooked up to an overclocked rig. However, in recent years watercooling has become ever more mainstream as evidenced by the number of manufacturers producing entry-level kits. These kits often provide ease of installation and operation at the expense of performance and cost. They also eliminate much of the knowledge barrier to entry to water cooling. Since the early DIY days, water cooling has... Read more...
