EKWB Announces a Liquid Nitrogen CPU Cooler

EK Water Blocks has announced a new liquid cooling unit, but this one doesn't work with water; it works with liquid nitrogen. Earlier EKWB already announced a similar product for memory cooling, but this time around it is announcing a cooling tube for CPUs.

The EK-SF3D Inflection Point EVO LN2-Tube is meant to be used with liquid nitrogen and is built from a copper base plated with nickel. EKWB claims that using this tube will require less insulation than other tubes, since it would use heaters to keep the PCB and the VRM's warmer to prevent condensation on these. 

The unit is also built using a unique mounting system. With this it should be possible to change the CPU or cooling block within less than a minute.

The EK-SF3D is already available on EKWB's webshop for an MSRP of $192.93. The mounting bracket would have to be bought separately, which would set you back another $51.40.

    So is this a LN2 cooler that can be used for normal computer use or is it just a simplified kit for playing around with overclocking?

    I personally think that's awesome. It's going to broaden the community of LN2 users imo.

    Unless you can pay someone to keep filling the pot, just for benchmarking purposes but with the VRM not being subjected to supercooled temps also, there should be some pretty interesting benches made with it I would think

    Sounds like a waste of money to me

    Does it come with the liquid nitrogen, or do we need to get it from the Libyans in exchange for used pinball machine parts?

    I think it would make a great holder for frozen Margarita!

    This is.... useless... Anyone who can afford to have liquid nitrogen at their home or workplace, can clearly afford a custom CPU LN2 Cooler.
    Its like giving cheap pens to buyers of a mansion: simply dosent make sense.
    If they made a Water cooling loop worth a damn it would be far better than this.
