Here comes HydroFlow HF-MK1
OCZ has announced its first venture into the world of water-cooling, the HydroFlow HF-MK1 waterblock. The new HydroFlow block comes with the highest possible exchange rate between the block and coolant, and can be easily integrated into any system.
With dimensions set at 5.5 x 5.5 x 1.75cm, the new HydroFlow HF-MK1 comes with triangular fins design, which gives it good volume to surface ratio and creates enough turbulence to eliminate the "skin" effect that is caused by laminar flow.
The center of the Hydroflow's copper base is slightly elevated to ensure maximum contact with the processor core and should ensure good heat exchange between the CPU and the waterblock. It supports Intel socket LGA775 and AMD socket 754, 939, 940 and AM2 processors.
It comes with 1/2" and 3/8" barb adapters and should be available soon with a suggested price of US $39.99.
