- Cooler Master AquaGate Watercooling Kit

Yet another ready-made watercooling kit on the market; Cooler Master's Aquagate gets a close look from the crew at ClubOC today. A nice feature of the kit which helps it to stand out from the pack is its ability to be installed either internally or externally, although you'd be wanting quite a spacious case design to cram it all in. Performance is what many have come to expect from a pre-built watercooling kit, just "ok".


The majority of Club Overclocker visitors would probably jump at an opportunity to water cool their CPU in pursuit of more Megahertz. Strangely enough, there are those that still scoff at the idea of water cooling and are heard uttering the overly quoted "water and electronics don't mix." Skillful (and some unskillful) Overclockers have been using water cooling gear for over five years now. Today, large companies are focusing their industrial dollar on the concept, which has helped put some of the intimidation that once stemmed from H2O cooling, at rest. Even some pre-built "PCs in a box" are coming with a self-contained water cooling unit installed instead of an air-cooled heatsink/fan combo. With the quality of products available today, the risks associated with water cooling are next to nil, provided that users take their time during the setup process.
