CoolIT Systems of Calgary, Alberta has announced a new self-contained liquid cooling kit designed for AMD's latest GPU, the Radeon HD 5870. Incorporated into the design is an universal liquid plate enabling customers to cool the latest generation cards but also allows it to be used on future cards as well. Since the cooling unit is self contained, the factory sealed system is maintenance free and CoolIT will be demonstrating it for the first time at the AMD Technical Forum & Exhibition 2009 in Taipei, Taiwan on October 20.

“I think the implementation of the universal design has addressed the need for performance cooling in the GPU space with the added benefit of upgradeability.” said Dr. Gamal Refai-Ahmed, AMD Fellow and lead thermal architect, AMD Graphics Product Group. “Using the liquid system has a tremendous cooling advantage over traditional air cooling allowing our enthusiast community to push the limits of our latest architecture.”

It will be interesting to see how well this cooler works on the latest Evergreen CPU architecture cards as the idea of a universal liquid plate means a more future proof cooler.
