It is has a ton more cooling (over the old model) and, finally, software that can talk to the PC.
Anyone have this yet (i just order it)? Thoughts?
I'm a big fan of not having my cooling in the PC. (I change stuff around a lot, but live in a small NYC apt so i can't have an open bench. Having external cooling makes working in a PC case much ez'r (and less being yelled at by the GF.
I've been using the older model for some time (I have a few of them. I also had their chiller too.)
I have no idea where the extra cooling is coming from as the form factor is almost the same as the older unit
<-- old unit
Cooling capacity: 4600W (15,696BTU/hr) with 25°C liquid-ambient delta @ 10LPM (new unit)
Cooling capacity: 2600W (8872BTU/hr) with 25°C liquid-ambient delta @ 10LPM (old model)
This uses USB (unlike the serial of the old one.. about time!)
Why am i upgrading?
Well, i'm a crazy person. (I also just ordered two 10980xe CPUs too. shhhh, i already have two x299 systems which i'm upgrading. )
Also, this new unit will be cooling to the PC connected to my TV (LG c9 77" oled.) The fans ramp up related to water temp and get pretty loud. Hopefully the new unit's whine will be better.
But if the form factor is the same as the old one, where is the better cooling coming from? (more powerful fans? (louder?))
That could be. I'm hoping the rad is better too. I'm also thinking of doubling up between the new and old units. That should be a lot of cooling.
(What i'm cooling is a 10980xe 5ghz(i hope)(it was a 7980xe at 4.7ghz) and two 2080ti kingpins with all limits removed.)
If no one has any feedback because they don't have it.. i'll give you some when i get it
(the units fit really nice into HT set ups... (note the pix is of the old unit, i'll update when i switch it out.)
Yes, these cooling units are costly.
