Antec Demos Kühler H2O 1250 and Kühler H2O 650
Antec has revealed two new innovative water coolers at Computex.
Antec is showing off two new coolers at Computex, the Kühler H2O 1250 and Kühler H2O 65. Both of the coolers feature a new concept for liquid cooling -- quite an interesting concept. The fan's motor hubs also work as the coolant pumps, meaning that there is only a single moving part (or two in the case of the 240 mm H20 1250) in the devices. This also means that the flow of the coolant is in direct proportion to the fan speed, so a higher fan speed directly translates to a higher coolant flow.Antec Kühler H2O 1250
With fewer moving parts, we'd imagine the device is more silent; however, a lot more power will be required from a single motor to do the two tasks. Moreover, the unit's fans will not be replaceable, nor will the orientation be switchable; it can only be used in a push configuration.Antec Kühler H2O 650
The units will be compatible with all of the most recent CPU sockets, including LGA1150. The company gave no word on pricing or availability, but we can likely expect some price premium over competing units.
