Phanteks launches a 360mm liquid cooler that can work with Intel’s Alder Lake CPUs
Beforehand leaked plans referred to as into query whether or not present CPU coolers would be capable of work with Intel’s upcoming Alder Lake processors, due to a brand new LGA 1700 socket, and an elongated built-in warmth spreader (IHS) and interposer design. Be that as it could, Phanteks is not fretting, not less than with reference to its Glacier One 360MPH.
The Glacier One 360MPH is a brand new all-in-one liquid CPU cooler. Because the mannequin title suggests, it is a huge one, with a 360mm radiator housing three 120mm followers housed within the firm’s Halos RGB fan frames.
Because it stands, the product web page highlights help for all fashionable CPU sockets, together with Intel LGA 115x, 1200, 1366, 2011, 2011-3, and 2066, and AMD AM4, sTRX4, and TR4. Sooner or later, Phanteks will add LGA 1700 to the combo as nicely.
“The Glacier One 360MPH will even help the upcoming LGA 1700 socket by means of Phanteks’ buyer help for customers who buy the Glacier One 360MPH,” Phanteks says.
In different phrases, it is going to provide some type of bracket package when Alder Lake arrives. Phanteks doesn’t say if it will likely be a free improve (I’d hope so), solely that prospects should request it by means of the corporate’s help channel.
This means to me that different present coolers would possibly get the identical remedy, although I am not conscious of any overt bulletins outdoors of this one. It is nonetheless early days although—Alder Lake is rumored to reach in the direction of the tip of the 12 months, maybe in November.
Socket help apart, this seems to be like a burly cooling answer. It encompasses a pump designed by Asetek (as is the case with many AIO coolers), with a excessive move price impeller and a pure copper cold-plate with skived fins. The pump housing seems to be fairly slick, with a tempered glass “Infinity Mirror” making a 3D RGB impact.
Phanteks is claiming its cooler can scale back temps dramatically. Its personal testing exhibits an Intel Core i7 10700K processor going from 68.2°C all the way in which right down to 24.7°C when switching from Intel’s inventory air cooler to the Glacier One 360MPH. We have not examined this cooler ourselves, although, so in the interim we will solely take the corporate’s phrase on its figures.
There’s additionally a smaller 240MPH variant with a 240mm radiator. In line with Phanteks, it may cool the identical chip right down to 25.9°C, suggesting it performs almost in addition to the 360mm mannequin.
Apparently sufficient, Phanteks solely particularly mentions the 360MPH with reference to future help for Alder Lake, although I see no motive why the 240MPH wouldn’t get the identical remedy. In any occasion, the 360MPH shall be obtainable in June for $200. There is not any point out of value for the 240MPH.
