Innovatek InnovaFlatFlow: Nickel And Copper
Along with Asetek and Koolance, Innovatek also sells a water cooler. The innovaFlatFlow XEON is constructed from a 3/16" (4 mm) thick plate of nickel-plated copper. On top of the plate is an attachment through which water is fed. It is mounted on the backplane with the spring screws. The water connections are angled and flexible, even though the whole unit is only 2" (5 cm) high. That makes it too big to fit in server racks with one height unit (1U = 1 ¾" or 44.45 mm). The cooler weighs 17.6 oz (500 grams) and costs around $90. Users therefore no longer have to do without a powerful and quiet cooling system just because they have a dual system. Overclocking the XEON CPU is no problem and scalability is good with the PC-DL based on the Intel 875 chipset from Asus. Cumulative thermal power of 185 W tops makes the use of two coolers advisable.
On the down side, this cooling solution comes at a hefty purchase price of up to $360. But, considering its possibilities, it's a price worth paying.
