Asetek announced the availability of its LCLC Liquid Cooling system for Intel's new LGA1156 "Lynnfield" processors:
Asetek, the industry leading supplier of liquid cooling systems for computers, announced today availability of its LCLC Liquid Cooling system for Intel’s new Core i5 processor family. Support for the new Intel Core i5 CPUs and their LGA1156 socket motherboards by Asetek’s popular Liquid Cooling Systems is enabled with a new universal mounting system. This novel mounting mechanism provides a single solution for cooling Core i5 processors, and all other popular Intel processors utilizing LGA 775 and LGA 1366 sockets. Manufacturing flexibility is enhanced and inventory control is simplified by this single liquid cooling solution for all Intel desktop processors. Now, any Intel desktop motherboard can support liquid cooling using the same configurable mounting ring, enabling OEMs to provide liquid cooling’s benefits of quiet computing and higher performance across a wider range of systems without increasing inventory costs.
“Asetek’s robust liquid cooling can now easily be configured for any Intel desktop motherboard. A single mounting ring enables flexible manufacturing in both high and low volume PC manufacturing settings,” said Gary Baum, Asetek's SVP of Marketing. "The new retention ring helps our OEM customers reduce inventory costs by providing a single solution to support Intel's entire mix of socket types."
The solution consists of a single Intel mounting ring and back plate. The universal mounting ring supports variable position screw inserts to fit specific socket requirements. OEMs can easily reconfigure part of their inventory to support a new mix of Intel processor demand. OEM customers building systems with a high mix of processors may order ring kits and configure them on the fly for the type of system being built.
