You know Antec for its cases and power supplies among it lineup of computer products. Now, Antec has announced its new KÜHLER series of high performance CPU coolers. The series consists of three cooler models, the KÜHLER Box, KÜHLER Shelf and KÜHLER Flow.
The KÜHLER Box is a symmetrical tower design which can be rotated 90°, 180° and 270° to coordinate with interior airflow requirements in your case. The unit uses a single 120mm PWM fan sandwiched in between two large aluminum heatsinks. The fan can crank out up to 68.2 CFM on high or or you can tone it down a bit and have it operate as quiet as 11.35 dBA. The KÜHLER Box features eight heatpipes to keep things cool and is compatible with a full range of Intel and AMD CPUs including Intel LGA 1366, 1156, 775 and AMD AM3, AM2+, AM2 sockets.
The KÜHLER Shelf is a C-design cooler featuring a 120mm top-mounted PWM fan with downward airflow cooling not only the base of the heatsink, but nearby motherboard components as well. The KÜHLER Shelf has seven copper heatpipes neatly arranged in a space-saving design to better accommodate tight spaces and tall chipsets.
Finally, there's the KÜHLER Flow CPU cooler, which is also a tower design but is narrower than the KÜHLER Box and can also be repositioned to match the case's airflow. It, too, has a 120mm PWM fan and is only 122mm wide.
All three coolers are designed to fit a wide range of leading desktop processor sockets, including LGA 1366, 1156, 775 and AMD sockets AM3, AM2+, and are compatible with Intel Core i7, Core i5 and AMD® Phenom II processors. Additionally, all come with an easy-installation kit which includes a mini-wrench for simple, fast set up.
Antec has priced each of the KÜHLER models at $59.99 and should be available now.
