Black Ice GT doubles surface area

Hardware Labs, http://www.hwlabs.com/gen2/index.html designer and manufacturer of the popular Black Ice family of PC watercooling radiators, has taken their market-leading performance and raised the bar even higher today with the launch of the Black Ice Gen Two http://www.hwlabs.com/index2.php, or Black Ice GT for short.

By employing custom MaxFin Splitter-fin Technology, Hardware Labs claims a 67% higher fin density and a 100% increase in surface area, both crucial in achieving high performance in a compact radiator.

The casualty is often the amount of air you can force through the rad but thanks to their new design, the Black Ice GT has an air pressure drop 50% less despite the increased fin density. The company says this is a result of using copper fins measuring just 25 microns, or 0.025mm, thick. This is 45% thinner than the industry standard of 45 microns.

The first Black Ice products to feature this new design is the Black Ice GT Stealth (GTS), engineered specifically for high performance and stealth silent operation. It will be avaiable in GTS120 single http://www.hwlabs.com/gen2/gts120.htm, GTS240 dual http://www.hwlabs.com/gen2/gts240.htm and GTS360 triple http://www.hwlabs.com/gen2/gts360.htm 120mm fan configurations. The GTS radiators will be available in the standard 2-pass U-flow and single-pass XFlow configurations, for low flow environments.

you know what would be so cool....overvolting one of those big 150MM fans you can get from frozencpu.com and using as minimizer to push the air through faster....can we say 400CFM baby....

Theres only so much juice you can give it, and it'll crap out at like 200cfm.
Plus, at 400 cfm over a long period of time, the holding bracket at the back bearing will give way and the propeller will bury itself in your wall, or eat half your front bezel into chunks.

As far as the black ice... D'OH! just bought a black ice xtreme 3*120 for 50.99....

Not really, since there are delta fans that run 220 CFM at stock voltages.

Pricing was still being finalised as we went to press but expect to see Black Ice Gen Two radiators very soon where all good watercooling goods are sold.

Yeah I hear ya, I have a rad being shipped out tomorrow but since this is new that means the prices will be really high and the old ones will get cheaper

Also, I want to see tests done and how much better it cools, uness the main reason for them releasing it is due to its size
