VapoChill LightSpeed launched by Asetek
NEW 115/230V VapoChill CPU cooler system launched by asetek

asetek Inc. - the leading manufacturer of vapor phase CPU cooling systems for PCs – has launched a new generation of the VapoChill® CPU cooling system. The NEW 115/230V VapoChill LightSpeed [AC]™ CPU cooler is released Wednesday 10th of March 2004.

VapoChill LightSpeed [AC]™
As early as 1997 André S. Eriksen made his first 220V AC Compressor based CPU cooling unit. Indeed the first generation VapoChill launched was a stand-alone 220/115V unit. This stand-alone 220/115V concept - utilized also by Kryotech and later by Chip-Con (now Nventiv) in their CPU cooling systems - is now re-launched in the most power full version ever seen: The VapoChill LightSpeed [AC]™.

Vapo or Nventiv?


The unit itself looks similar to Nventive's Mach II but is more powerful. The aluminum case design is one that many people will like and it goes well with Lian Li case.

I have to warn you that unit sounds like a fridge but it is meant for people that like speed as opposed to a quiet environment. I guess it's a bit noisier than previous units due its stronger compressor. In this case, the noise isn't a big deal, since you will be impressed enough with the speeds to for sure forget about the noise.

Units should be in shops soon and you will be able to see these units at Cebit. You saw our scores, so I certainly can recommend the unit to all you rabid overclockers out there
