KryoTech's Cool Athlon 800 MHz

What's This Thing Look Like?

Here's a picture of the KryoTech Cool Athlon 800 MHz system, showing the same design that some of us may already know from the previous Cool K6-2 and K6-3 Kryotech-systems. When you here about the implementation of a refrigeration unit, the first thing that comes to mind is big and ugly. We think KryoTech did a great job concealing the refrigeration unit. However, this unit is not only fast, it's damn heavy too.

Inside the system is very open and uncluttered, although KryoTech has to pipe the coolant from the bottom of the case (refrigeration unit) to the CPU slot (Slot A).

Here is a close up of the top half of the system board. The coolant tube routing provides sufficient space for getting to the memory sockets and just enough room to add or remove the AGP video board.

In this picture you get a good look at the bottom half of the system board. Again, the coolant tube routing provides plenty of room available for the addition of PCI and ISA boards. Screwing down the adaptor boards requires some skill and patience but definitely isn't an impossible task.
