Hybrid Air Cooler

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Anyone know of something like this?:

http://www.techpowerup.com/147218/PCCooler-OC3-W120-Combines-Tower-Type-Air-Cooler-with-Water-Block.html

It's a air heatsink but it also doubles as a waterblock. You can only find this in China but I wonder if there is more of these types of heatsinks.

a heatpipe based cooler was not what the TS was asking for. Every single 20$+ Heatsink is based on heatpipes wink.gif


@TS, no there's not more of these, that i know of, because the conecept is pretty much useless.

The idea looks good on paper, but no matter how much additional cooling you throw at something that is based on ambient temperatures- you will never get it below the ambient temperature.

If you run air, get a bigger heatsink or go water. If water, get a bigger radiator and pump.

Probably why these will never catch on.

Well, because pretty much any custom loop will outperform the H80? The better question would be: why would you want it over a standard High End Block?

this! you are either gonna watercool or aircool, and will stick to one method. are you going to switch cooling method everyday?

But I just cannot see the point of a heatsink thing like this at all, the fact is you're either gonna be air cooling, or water cooling.

When water fails, in a computer, isn't always catastrophic if the system is on anyway? It's not like this offers any more redundancy, hah. rolleyes.gif
