    AKASA has unveiled its newest CPU cooler, named Revo. Powered by thermodynamic "bubble-pump" technology the Revo promises noiseless cooling and high thermal performance.
    , says Adrian Young, Marketing Director of AKASA. With Revo's system heat is transported rapidly by dual-component fluid along a hermetically sealed circuit to an aluminum radiator. The radiator is cooled by conventional 92mm fan operating at 600 to 2200 RPM. The Revo weights only 330g, and can be easily fitted on Intel LGA775, AMD socket 939, 940, 754 and AM2. Retail availability is yet to be announced.

    It'll be the price that defines if it is revolutionary or not. Still, it looks like they have put some work into these. Looking forward to some benchmarks.

    Yes, someone at TPU get a sample and let's see a review!

    ... wonder if a video card version is in the works too.

    Hmmm wonder how well the hsf will dump the heat, also wonder how powerful the tec is.

    Thermodynamic is the same as TEC?

    Akasa has been working on the Revo for about two years now and no, it's not TEC.
    It was first shown at CeBIT about two years ago and it's taken this long to get it right. It should be quite affordable, but don't expect it to be for high-end overclocking.

    this cooler is different... im guessing water under low pressure that begins moving due to heat, causing convection.

    I don't care too much about the performance, it just looks cool.

    I want one.

    Nope. TEC = Thermoelectric cooling
