Sandy Bridge-E to ship with Asetek closed-loop liquid cooler

Asetek closed-loop water cooling to come included with Sandy Bridge-E

I'm an absolute girly-giggling fan of Corsair's Hydro range, using a H70 myself on my Core i7 CPU and loved its simple, yet amazing performance. There is now news floating that Intel's upcoming Sandy Bridge-E's retail-boxed CPUs will ship with a closed-loop liquid cooler from none other than Asetek. Intel confirmed the news that it will bundle liquid cooling systems into boxes with its next-generation Core i7-3000-series CPUs.

This will mark the first time that Intel has officially supposed enthusiast-class cooling with their CPUs. This will only help their popularity amongst the overclocking community and those who want to dabble in water-cooling but don't want to mess with pumps, tubing and leaks. Intel-brand sealed liquid coolers will be Asetek coolers as stated above, including a large 120mm fan. The coolers are also set to be made available separately from the CPUs.

 

Pricing on the coolers is unknown.
