P.S. If you could check out my build log that would be awesome!! (The Eternal Tower Of ROG ~Haf Stacker~ in my sig) I really like the direction your company is going, and wish you guys luck!

Your build log is stacking awesomeness man.

2. The glacier, because I really like mine and I plan on keeping it as a back or put it in my other computer.
3. I think a 360 version of the glacier would be pretty nice.

360 may come soon.

It's also a shame your cases are not more watercooling compatible. Which Cooler Master case can fit a couple 480 rads without significant modding? As large as your Cosmos 2 and HAF Stacker cases are, they still don't compete with the likes of the 900D or Enthoo Primo for a custom watercooling enthusiast. They easily could/should have though.

Working on the chassis part as much as possible. Since chassis watercooling support is related to space, and space is related to more costs and other things, its not as simple as just a case that supports X.

Cooler Master used to have a line of pumps called Aquagate. One issue is how do we build the passion and "fanboyism" regarding our parts. Would people want to see CM logos on all their pumps, elbows and paraphernalia? How could we improve our image in water cooling to justify demand for these really niche parts.

I would love more branding from CM! biggrin.gif

not a big deal to me.

Between the H220 and Glacer which do you prefer and why?

I like the fans that come on the H220 so if that was available maybe that would be the deciding factor.

If you didn't consider a Glacer, what could we do better?


I don't own the Glacer 240 myself, but I recommended it and installed it for my friend. in terms of performance it's a solid product that doesn't leave too much to be desired. besides some kind of software monitoring, the only things I'd want improved upon are purely cosmetic things like the fan cables could use some sleeving (CM seems to have an issue with sleeving in general, like most of you guys' case headers and such, but that's off topic) and the pump unit itself could use a makeover. I'd like a 360 version of course.

Maybe, have the Glacier in different colours, so that people who are doing themed builds dont have to paint if they dont feel comfortable doing so.

the splitter was also in tandem with the aesthetics of helix fans, as well as the fact that I'm one of the more pickier ones with fan speed. none of the fans in my case run past 1000 rpm(as well as the fact that the H220 at the time of purchase was cheaper, as the Glacer was still pretty new and only still in newegg's hands)

On topic,an entry into the cpu block market might be a good start......the aio market holds no interest to me.

Also,some nice styled cases rather than the plastic things I see from CM.

How would you like a CM water block to be?

If CM styling isn't to your taste I guess that is fine, but be honest, we use the same or less amount of plastic in our chassis compared to our competitors.

That's my point,distiguish yourselves from the hoi polloi with some high end cases,look at what in win has been doing...gone from bargain basement to top shelf with a new design outlook.

Don't own any Coolermaster AIO (Own some CM fans, and a bunch of little things), nor Swiftech AIO kits (have two swiftech pumps and a swiftech WB though) but for people looking to get into liquid cooling a stronger pump would always be a good thing to have in a CLC kit. Low price kits being "expandable" doesn't mean jack if you end up having to get another $90 pump to actually expand it, so I could imagine being truly expandable out of the box would be a great selling point for people looking to take the plunge into the world of water cooling.

I'd agree with this ^

How do we avoid the uncertainty inherent in upgrading the water cooling? What metric could we say, "if you add a coldplate for your GPU, it will still work X well"?

I bought my Glacier immediately after it was offered, and got to work on NEVER installing it as it came... biggrin.gif

So I did this...

OH DEAR GOD, KILL IT, KILL IT!!! (Click to show)


And I'm loving it.

Now, I plan to expand this loop to include the GPU later (different GPU, mind you), and also swap the ACool radiator for two HWL Black Ice rads, as well as some other touches.

It's run flawlessly, and I've never had a problem, save the snipping off of the edge of the barb ring on the GPU side of the block to fit properly against the GPU with no touching!


Only one thing, and that's to run it all the way I wanted to I had to use the Swiftech 8-way splitter (seperate purchase), and given that it's such a simple thing, it's worked flawlessly!




Thanks - T
