AMD high-end FX CPUs to be bundled with liquid cooling?

Posted on Monday, August 15 2011 @ 23:00:10 CEST by


X-bit Labs reports AMD may bundle its flagship FX series processors with liquid cooling solutions:
Advanced Micro Devices is mulling to equip boxed versions of its FX-series central processing units (CPUs) with a liquid-cooling solution (LCS) in order to enhance their overclockability as well as to improve their image in the eyes of high-performance computer enthusiasts. The idea seems to be rather innovative and AMD's arch-rival Intel Corp. is also considering it.

In a bid to offer quiet and high-performance cooling solution for its next-generation FX-series microprocessors, AMD intends to bundle a liquid cooling solution with the chips, according to a source with knowledge of the company's plans. AMD is considering to bundle the advanced cooler with its top-of-the-range eight-core chips, but it is unknown whether the chip designer will include the LCS with both eight-core FX chips or only with the most expensive model. The Sunnyvale, California-based company is currently considering to include a completely sealed liquid system that consists of a CPU water block with copper base, large heat-exchanger as well as cooling fan.
