CoolIT Systems Develops Liquid Cooling for Intel’s Skull Trail Motherboard

CoolIT Systems announces its new “ST” line of liquid cooling solutions designed specifically to work with Intel’s D5400XS motherboard (formerly codenamed Skull Trail). The lineup consists of the Boreas MTEC Chassis ST and PURE ST both of which provide maintenance-free, aggressive cooling power to both CPUs and Chipset, reduce noise, and enhance system reliability. The PURE ST easily fits into any chassis with a 120mm fan mount and efficiently cools both CPUs and the chipset with near silent operation. The Boreas MTEC Chassis ST combines CoolIT’s most powerful MTEC technology in the Boreas with the well renowned Silverstone TJ07 chassis to create the ideal barebones kit for the most avid PC enthusiast to the experienced professional content creator. Both the Boreas MTEC Chassis ST and PURE ST are available from multiple distributors and online etailers, with street prices expected to be $899 and $269 respectively. “CoolIT’s new ST lineup will enable PC Enthusiasts to fully maximize the performance of Intel’s new Skull Trail platform technology” said Geoff Lyon, CEO of CoolIT Systems. ” We’ve worked closelywith Intel to develop this customized Skull Trail liquid cooling solution and the end result will excite PC Enthusiasts and Gamers world-wide .”


“We’ve been extremely impressed with CoolIT’s ability to enable gains in overclocking performance, even while still reducing system noise and providing a low-maintenance, simple installation.” remarks Erik Cubbage, Product Marketing Engineer for Intel corporation. “The new ST coolers combined with our enthusiast D5400XS motherboard yield mind-boggling computing performance that is exciting the industry.”
CoolIT Systems will be working alongside Intel to develop liquid cooling solutions for future Intel Desktop Boards, as well as other applications which will launch in the near future.

If only my money tree grew.

Even then my e-penis wouldn't be satisfied.

:(

CoolIT are pretty good though, I like the kit they did for Shuttle.

Meh, the Skulltrail is not that great of a board. Its server ECC memory is a HUGE bottleneck, and makes have higher performance GPU's useless.

Not to mention CoolIT for as good as they are, charges an arm and a leg for their products. Id love to get the boreas for my pc (and hook up gpu and chipset cooling) but that would be expensive. I think the original boreas is like 499 or 599.,

You're right, it sucks. It's designed to be the ultimate enthusiast platform and it's a complete joke as it currently stands. Maybe we'll see some sort of improvement once games start utilizing more than one core. If Intel jump on the same bandwagon as AMD are planning on doing and make the CPU force whatever program to make use of the idle cores then it'd be extremely quick.

That's another problem, the expensive is a limiting factor - you could argue you're paying for quality and what y'get I suppose.

Still wish my money tree grew.

Their world record 3DMark runs are still set using DDR2 or 3 boards, not Skulltrail. In fact, the 06 record is set using a QX9650 on an Asus P5E 64 WS and the Vantage record is set on an nVidia chipset. There's a reason they don't use them for their gfx benches, and that's because Skulltrail doesn't clock as well, and is severely limited by it's memory system.

In short, the others here aren't hating, they are right. Intel dropped the ball by using FB-DIMMs.

No records were set by skull trail.

Well Skulltrail is meant to be the ultimate enthusiast gaming platform...and guess what, it sucks balls as a gaming platform. Its server ECC memory @ 800mhz is so slow for its high peformance cpu and gpu, that it bottlenecks them. If Skulltrail is meant to be the ultimate computations platform...that is another story.

that would depend on where your gaming enthusiasm lies team fortress man,if i were putting together a game server im sure the skulltrail would indeed surpass its marketing expectation

Skulltrail is totally unnecessary for a gaming server. You can do that with a simple dual core rig. Game servers don't need a whole lot of power. The most important thing for a game server is ping.

Face it, Skulltrail is a flop for gaming enthusiasts. The only things it has going for it are Crossfire and SLI on the same board. If you take SLI out of the equation, you're better off just buying a standard dual socket workstation board, for much less money. Even still the FB-DIMMS are gonna be the bottleneck.
