EKWB Debuts LN2 Evaporation Cooler

EK Waterblocks makes a big lineup of water cooling products, but with the EK-SF3D Triple Point EVO EKWB, it takes things a step further, moving away from the world of water cooling.

This product is built to cool the memory modules and as it is no longer a water cooling product, and we should not expect to hook it up to our water cooling loop. Instead, it is an evaporation tub. The idea is simple: Make sure you mount it on a horizontally placed motherboard and fill the evaporation tub with liquid nitrogen (or place dry ice inside it).

In the box, buyers will find two EK-SF3D Triple Point Module Adapter heat sinks, as well as the Triple Point EVO, which is made of a nickel plated copper base and has a top extension made of acetyl to reduce condensation. They've also included a tube of Gelid GC-Extreme TIM.

The unit is already for sale on EKWB's webstore with an MSRP of €74.95, or $97.26. Two additional EK-SF3D Triple Point Module Adapter heat sinks can be bought for $32.38.

    Why would you really need that? Why not pay 1000 for an awesome water cooler that isn't quite as good as this but doesn't require a refill every 6 hours?

    You have no idea how an evaporation chamber works do you?
    A liquid is heated and evaporates, the vapors rise, cool, condense and condensation falls back down to be heated again. It is a self contained cyclical system.

    I spent 10 minutes writing a snappy reply and then I decided to erase it all and say this.

    I was wrong and you were right. Though it still seems overkill. No memory I know of on this globe needs that much cooling, even with OC.

    And I can't down vote my old post. Mod or etc, feel free to remove it.

    Guys you are missing the point of this, it is not a permanent or daily solution, its made mainly for benchmarking runs with sub zero temps. This allows them to hit higher clock speeds which cannot be attained with water cooling. Although yes it is overkill in most cases.

    But I do agree it is overkill in most situations :D

    wow, while that's awesome, I honestly don't know anyone who would buy it... I mean that is a seriously limited market...

    this memory cooler i can accept, only because its used to benchmark. all other memory coolers are a WASTE

    Only use for this is in combination with LN2 cpu cooling. Memory is the not the bottleneck of the system and really doing this to the memory may allow you a few extra numbers in synthetics and no real world gain.

    slomo4sho - you apparently didn't read the article: it is an evaporation "tub", NOT a closed system at all. It is a ridiculously expensive, extremely short term cooling method, most likely for benchmarking purposes only
