Origin PC Offers New Liquid Cooling for OC'ing Up To 5.2GHz

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 26 comments

Frostbyte, but nothing to do with Crytek's engine. Rather, this is some other form of cool tech.

Origin PC today announced a new cooling solution for those looking for something above what the boutique PC maker previous offered. New is the Frostbyte 360 liquid cooling system, which features silent pumps, a high efficiency triple 120mm radiator, and zero maintenance.

The Origin PC Genesis configured with the Frostbyte 360 starts at $1599. Origin boasts that overclocking teams are reaching speeds up to 5.2GHz with the new cooler.

Origin PC's exclusive Frostbyte 360 Liquid Cooling System features:

•    Origin professional CPU overclocking up to 5.2GHz on multiple cores

•    Micro-channel copper CPU block and 360mm high efficiency copper radiator

•    Embedded temperature sensor delivers the copper surface temperature with an accuracy of +/- 1C

•    Ultra silent operation and exceptionally low weight

•    Factory sealed, maintenance free operation

•    Thermal resistance as low as 0.085 C/W

This won't be for those who build their own systems, but rather for anyone looking for a complete, tweaked gaming PC.

    Looks like the same boring ODM used by both Corsair and Antec......exciting!

    At that price I may as well just buy a computer with dual processors to get double the computing power.

    Dont matter. Last sentence says it all and will not be offered off the shelf. Gotta see the eye popping price tag on the rigs that carry this thing.

    Frostbyte, but nothing to do with Crytek's engine.

    Am I the only one who notices the mistake?! Frostbite is an engine developed by EA and used by Dice in Battlefield and Mirror Edge series (yes, I DO hope for Mirror's Edge 2...)

    This unit is WAY overpriced IMO. This is nothing more than a glorified Corsair H100 unit and I don't understand what exactly the $1200 price increase will give me to make it worth it... other than a much larger dent in my wallet.

    Now we can finally play Crysis. Wonder if the lights in the house dim every time you turn that sucker on?

    3x120 LC for 1599$ - And 5,2GHz on a cpu out of likely hundreds of cpu's oc'd will make everyone achieve that for sure, yeah right! No thx, WAY overpriced, can even get a true sub zero cooler for that!

    3x120 LC for 1599$

    This would be the cost for the ENTIRE PC, not the cooler.

    You only would need a 240 radiator, not a 360. Also, pump is likely very weak, meaning low flow rates. Looks like an Asetek rebranded block/pump.

    Gimmicky solution at best. This isn't going to make your playing experience any better.

    I hope ivy bridge to be more stable to overclock beyond 4.8ghz on standard after market aircooler(not the premium cooler) but all these overclock beyond 4.2 or so doesn't effect on gaming as expected as it should be.

    completely pointless unless your running 3 high end video cards.

    Folks please read! The $1599 is INCLUDING the PC with this cooler. By itself it's priced at $199 according to web sources.

    Even so, considering I have my 2500k running at 4.83GHz every day on an $80 Noctua NH-D14 and have cracked 5.0GHz stable in testing, I'll pass for now thanks. But it is pretty and would match my component colors and fan LEDs perfectly. Maybe down the road when I get tired of the gargantuan NH-D14.

    Damn, my bad, of course it was. DICE doesn't always use Frostbite :)

    cool rig, but with PC games being held back by consoles, it just doesn't make sense to have a rig like that unless your trying to compensate for something else. meanwhile im gonna hop in my over-sized, obnoxious, jacked up, supercharged 4x4 and drive to the grocery store. cause im cool.

    What I'd like to see before shelling out the cash for one of these is some game benchmarks. Lets be honest other than maybe some folding or photoshop work most of your home users are going to buy this for gaming. So lets see some numbers in game. If it holds true to what we've seen with all the newest cpus there's zero benefit in games to a faster cpu.
