Where OCZ were once seen soley as a memory maker, they have been making a solid effort of branching out into other segments of the market for quite a while now with market presence all over the shop; including power supplies, CPU coolers, solid state storage and even do it yourself notebooks.

Advancing on their cooling solutions, they have just moved into the realm of accessories for liquid-cooling systems, introducing today their HydroFlow HF-MK1 CPU waterblock.

"The HydroFlow HF-MK1 targets the highest possible thermal exchange rate between a solid body and the surrounding fluid, while maintaining enough cross sectional area for superior thermal conductance within the fin structure," commented Dr. Michael Schuette, V.P. of Technology Development at OCZ Technology.

"Additionally, the relieved contact area concentrates the pressure on the actual die area of any processor, thereby minimizing the thermal interface material-induced loss in heat dissipation. In short, the HydroFlow epitomizes the recent advances in fluid cooling at an affordable price."

The HydroFlow will go on sale at an MSRP of $39.99USD. You can find the press release on it here, and the product page here folks.

Designed with the highest possible exchange rate between the block and coolant, the HydroFlow can be easily integrated into any enthusiast system and help efficiently lower the processor temperature.
