Asetek 760GC

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
i grabbed one of these combo coolers. I'm wondering if they were prototypes? It didn't come in "retail packaging" just a box & some padding. i noticed that they aren't on ebay anymore & the info page has been taken out of the ASETEK website. if they were production line, why were they discontinued so quickly? Anyone know?

The only retail application I've seen was on some PNY 580 that didn't really sell, since a 120mm rad (even a thick one) isn't that great when you have both a high-end GPU and a CPU on the same loop.

IMO they should've gone with a 240mm rad at least.

true. so maybe they took that into consideration, sold what they had left, then decided to redesign? i will call them tomorrow. their corporate headquarters are about 10 min from my house.

imo they should have 2 models. the 760 for low end. (mid range cards & cpus) then a 860 which is designed for higher end cards & cpus. (it would be a little thicker than the h80 & be 240mm) this 760 version should be fine for what i'm doing. a 2500k @ 4.2 & stock V; & a SOC line 460.

Wouldn't be surprised if they cancelled that project entirely. It was a niche within a niche within a niche, and not outstanding as it was.

Although if they redesign it with the 280mm rad cribbed from a Kraken or H110, I may just have to pick one up. How is yours performing, by the way? Got any pics of it installed?

not yet. i'm waiting on the brackets. subscribe to build log in my sig. should be up next weekend..

it would be killer if they made 2 versions of it with a 360 rad. CPU & GPU, Dual GPU. i'd mod my 600T just to fit them. & the dual GPU would be perfect for bottom mounting.

I also noticed the product disappearing from their site and ebay, very weird indeed.
I also bought a asetek 760gc along with the 740gf, to cool my 2500k cpu and my two Inno3D gtx570 Hawk in SLI. Waiting for the vrm heatsinks to get here. The purpose is strictly reduce the overall noise, hope it works.
Are you going to use 2 fans in push-pull? Which one's?

corsair sp120 high performance. im sure the quiet version will do, but since they're going to be controlled by a fan controller, it's good to have the extra RPMS when i need them, and also i can make them quiet when i don't.

Be warned that I've found the SP120 doesn't undervolt particularly well. It loses performance VERY quickly and below 7V develops an irritating clicking noise. They're good (and loud as a jet engine) at full speed and only at full speed.
