OCZ is showing off its upcoming Hydrojet processor cooler at the Games Convention in Leipzig.
This pretty innovative 100% self contained liquid processor cooler features the WayCool technology from OnScreen and uses a carbon nanotube-based core which should dissipate heat five times better than copper. This mix of liquid and air cooling should deliver really good cooling performance.
Tests by DV/DT Engineering indicate the cooler can dissipate up to 400W, without exceeding the max temperature set by processor makers. OCZ also states that the Hydrojet is 35 times more silent than any other cooling system on the market, a quite amazing claim.
Tests of OCZ's HydroJet CPU cooler solution featuring WayCool
technology, combined with OnScreen's patent pending carbon block heat
transfer medium, demonstrate the successful management of the thermal
energy from a 400W heat source. As explained by Stan Robinson, Chief
Engineer for DV/DT Engineering, the facility at which the device was
tested, "We ran our test block to its maximum output of 400W and the
HydroJet maintained the chip below operational norms throughout the entire
test period. In contrast, we compared the HydroJet to a leading CPU cooling
device that had to be shut down within moments of reaching 400W, when the
chip temperature exceeded 105 degrees Celsius."
If the product lives up to the hype than the price is also quite cheap, according to OCZ the cooler will be available this quarter (before the end of September) for $99.
