New Cooling Solution by CapTherm AnnouncedCategory: Cooling

CapTherm, a company you most likely have never heard of, makes cooling solutions for datacenters, PCs, and even the military.
Now the company is ready with a new type of CPU cooler called the MP-1120, which is a multiphase cooling solution. When CapTherm set out to design this cooler, it had to think out of the box, since copper and aluminum had been used in so many ways, and it seemed that the industry had hit a plateau. What the company did was using a technique called explosion welding to weld normally incompatible metals together, such as titanium, copper, and stainless steel, which are the components used to make the base. This however is not enough. The base is hollow and contains a non-conductive liquid, which begins to boil as the CPU heats up the base. The liquid then evaporates and travels up a 120 mm radiator. According to CapTherm, the cooler is able to run passive in most instances, but it is possible to attach a 120 mm fan to improve cooling. TweakTown claims that this cooler might offer up to ten times better performance than some of the other solutions available on the market.
Since many PC builders like to show off their hardware, CapTherm installed a little glass window to the base and a RGB LED, so it is possible to see the liquid boil inside.
Innovation often costs money, and this cooler is no different. With an MSRP of $249, it is not a cheap cooler. However, if it lives up to the hype, it might be what you need to bring your rig to the next level. There is currently no official release date.
