During the IDF 2011 show, Intel showed a rather interesting piece of cooling tech for its upcoming Sandy Bridge E CPUs. Although there were no details regarding the performance of the cooler, sharp eyes of Legitreviews guys spotted it on the show floor.

The only piece of information is that, Termal Solution RTS2011LC as Intel calls its liquid cooler, supports processors with a TDP rationg of up to 130W. As noted, the cooler was developed by Asetek, the guys that have been doing this for quite some time and we have no doubt that they did a very good job.

The design is similar to the one seen on Corsair's liquid coolers except for the slight change in the radiator design, water pump and a fan, and Intel brags that it should provide better cooling that the Corsair H70 with dual-fan design.

According to the guys at Legitreviews, the cooler should be in channel when socket LGA2011 comes out later this year and it will have a price in the US $100 to US $125 range.
