Intel's Sandy Bridge-E will have liquid cooling

Written by Nick Farell



All-in-one


The new Sandy Bridge-E processors will be Chipzilla's  first to ship with a liquid cooling system. The coolers, manufactured by Asetek under Intel's brand will ship with the Core i7 3000-series processors.

The cooler consists of an external 120mm fan as well as a pump and a heatsink to help the chip keep its cool. It is the first time chipzilla has moved away from traditional air cooling, and since it is all-in-one it is easy to set up. It will also enable users to overclock its forthcoming super-chip to higher temperatures and frequencies.

The standalone version of the cooler will be compatible with the Sandy Bridge-E's LGA2011 platform, as well as LGA1155, LGA1156 and LGA1366 platforms. Liquid cooling is starting to become more common. Prices of all-in-one systems are dropping.

Probably the same basic unit as the one AMD is now selling since they came out with PooDozer, which looks to be basically the same as the Corsair H70. Now we know why Corsair switched OEMs from their low cost liquid cooling systems for the second generation units. I imagine between AMD and Intel, that Asetek's manufacturer is all tied up now building for them.

Are you sure "poodozer" is shipping with liquid cooling? Specs show me air cooling...

Bulldozer is a great CPU, give AMD credit for the amount of innovation they put into this design. The only problem I see is the Over hype along with Windows 7 and today's software that does not fully recognize the design due to it being New, Built from the Ground up.

I also blame AMD for not ensuring it to be fully compatible also.

Piledriver (Bulldozer II) should have everything resolved in Q1 2012. Until then EnJoY Bulldozer, I know I will.

These Asetek water coolers cost the same as a good quality air cooler, compound that with the fact that it's much safer to mount this small water block than a giant heatsink. It's about time.

big cooler=high temperature=big wattage,i believe sandy e,and bulldozers will use much more watts,but thats normal.
power comes from energy and can not be created without it.

Are you mad bro? Bulldozer top CPU isn't as good as 2500K and power use is off the charts!

Innovation/design, are you joking? its slower than Phenom II!!

You enjoy Bulldozer, sane people will enjoy 2500k/2600k from Intel.

Watch this video review of Bulldozer FX-8150, cos you obviously don't know what your talking about!

Check out the power use, FX-8150 VS 2600k

overclocked FX-8150 uses almost twice the power, but much less performance!!!

Only a simpleton would advise anyone to purchase Bulldozer...

Even the most ignorant/moronic fanboys would not buy Bulldozer!!!

The thing with Bulldozer is that its made for tomorrow and not today. I wouldnt call it a great cpu and not even good with the power use but its sure not bad. Who knows how much better it can get with proper schedule optimization.

To come back at topic...the names, the new names are so damn confusing. LGA2011, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366 or freaking FX 8150...how is somebody supposed to remember that.
