TherMagic CPU Cooling System (CCS) Review (Page 1)

With processors continuing to gain in speed and power, heat issues are requiring more consideration whether you choose Intel or AMD. To maintain an acceptable level of cooling, many people have turned to alternative cooling methods. Come join Mike "Darthtanion" Wright as he takes a look at one such method, the fully enclosed TherMagic CPU Cooling System; or CCS for short. Let's see if it has what it takes to handle the load!

For those who have been taking in the reviews that we do regularly, you might remember a product made by Evergreen Technologies that was called TherMagic. It was a new thermal interface material and did an amazingly good job of transferring heat away from the processor core and into the heatsink. It even managed to edge out the industry leader, Arctic Silver, by a little bit.

Well, it seems as though the folks over at TherMagic didn't want to stop at just creating an outstanding TIM, but they also wanted to create a new method of cooling the processor as well. To accomplish this feat, they came up with a fully enclosed water cooling system that they called the CPU Cooling System; or CCS for short.

When I was first approached concerning the possibility of testing this kit and reviewing it, I was pretty hesitant. For those who know me at all, they also know that I have stayed far away from ANY water-cooling setup. This is mainly because I'm still concerned about the thought of introducing water to a set of electrical components, but also because of my fear that it might ruin my little toy. So rest assured that I'll be looking hard not only at performance, but also at the safety of this unit as well. I've put too much time and effort into creating a system that suits my exact needs to throw it all away on a whim.

So sit back and take a gander at a liquid solution designed for those who may be nervous about using this type of setup within their own system.
