is a European distributor who had their own booth and they had a wide range of interesting products from companies they work with, including Thermalright, Antec, Swiftech and many more.
The main attraction was a completely modded water cooled PC which used an old barrel as a case with flashy (neon?) colors.
Two separate loops were created, one for the CPU, the other for the graphics card, which featured Swiftech’s latest GPU block, the MCW60
When I asked them if they were not afraid of leaks with an open test setup like this, they did a small demonstration with the none-conductive fluid they were using, pouring a good 1/4L over the running motherboard, graphics card and power supply.
This fluid will be sold through them, but I couldn’t get any name yet, it’s completely none conductive (as shown in their small test) and will only increase overall temperatures by 1-2°C compared to normal distilled water.
Bacata is also working on selling pre-build system in custom made cases like the one seen below; it doesn’t look like an ordinary PC and at first I mistook it for a large speaker box. Their aim is to sell these system for HTPC use;
Bleu Jour made a similar design choice with their cube PC which doesn’t look at all like a PC. Their latest, the “AS” is suitable for Mini-ITX motherboards, has 4x3.5” internal drive bays and 1x50mm rear fan and a 125W ATX power supply.
I also spotted a few large CPU coolers at their booth, turns out they were yet unannounced Thermalright products. The Ultra-90 and Ultra-120 - K8 versions.
The Ultra-120 has 4 heat pipes and a large area stacked with small fins. The Ultra-90 has 3 heat pipes and is relatively small.
Both use a clip-on system similar for the HR-01 and they are light weight. Unlike the HR-01 however they come with clips so you can install a fan onto them. While the HR-01 was Thermalright's first tower cooler, it didn't support a fan mount, the "Ultra-90" and "Ultra-120" are designed for use with a fan and it will be interesting to see how they will perform. It seems
that the Ultra-90 has 120mm fans support. Makes you wonder what size fan will fit the Ultra-120.
They also revealed Zalman’s Fatal1ty power supply which a 600W “mod” unit with 4*12V rails and a large 120mm fan for cooling.
