    Ignoring the fact that IMO this is crappy marketing. I don't either think the product has any potential. Why try to put everything hanging of the mobo if you can put a 240mm in the top of your case and get a load of extra cooling.

    If anything, the sheer weight of such a contraption is a liability to the CPU and/or motherboard.

    You are correct! The cores were approaching 90C during the 100% load overclocked testing!

    This is the truth! They have awesome performance, but there is no way I could run that day in and day out!

    Hello GorbazTheDragon!

    The prototype in the review weighs the same as the Noctua NH-D14 that is also in the review. I think the weight fear is overstated.

    90c at the core is unacceptable for aftermarket cooling especially water cooling ...
    the kracken x31 is 80.00 usd SHIPPED and will perform better
    sorry man but you have a DUD here its to heavy the performance is to low and the price will be to high and there is ZERO I REPEAT ZERO advantage to having the radiator hanging off the motherboard if anything its worse
    We are going around in circles here they aren't gonna get funded and even if they did they would be blown out of the market with the plethora of solutions already present
    I am unsubbing and requesting a perma-lock enough free pr I think

    OneMoar, This is 90C at the core in an overclocked state and 100% synthetic load designed to create the maximum amount of heat the chip can produce. This testing methodology is the one used on most hardware review sites. I encourage you to read the review more closely. You are saying that 90C is unacceptable for aftermarket cooling, but the Corsair H80i 120mm AIO cooler and the Noctua NH D14 cooler returned worse core temps than the prototype when under the same test conditions. What you are saying does not add up. The kraken x31 is also a 120mm AIO cooler, much like the Corsair H80i 120mm AIO cooler in the review. I have no reason to believe it will perform better.

    Regarding if I have a DUD or not... this is a review of a prototype that is not for sale and never will be. As it is a prototype, the weight is irrelevant (but still less than the Noctua NH D14) and it will never have a price, as it is not for sale and never will be.

    This thread is not about anyone getting funded. This thread is about the review of a prototype that is in the OP.

    I believe the OP has been suitably grilled by everyone, regarding the product and his intentions. He could have not bothered sticking around and answering the SAME QUESTIONS OVER AND OVER but he didn't. Here's here, and he's taken all the shit you can throw at him. I for one would love to hear more about actual useful indepth details about the system, as opposed to whether the company who made it has their balls clasped by some big investors.

    Nothing separates most AIO aftermarket coolers these days besides the token differences from the general OEM's like Asetek, and the only other coolers are tower ones, of which there are the token 3 (Noctua, Phanteks, and Cryorig) which are general received as the best performers in their class. What we really need to see is the top 3 single rad AIO's, and the top 3 tower coolers, and this, to see just exactly how well it performs in similar tests, we will of course need to know eventually whether its cost is parallel to its performance.

    Also ignore OneMoar, he's always been a high-octane angry person at everything, and has been banned from TPU teamspeaks a number of times. I wouldn't take anything he says personally, or as a representation of what the rest of us on the forum think. It says quite specifically in his sig he is not here to be nice, therefore I don't see what relevance not-nice posts can have.

    I personally, would love to see more high quality images of the cooler from all angles.

    I still believe this thread is some weird ass attempt at marketing or whatever.
    It stinks from the very beginning. A huge successful company that has been doing this for years noone ever heard of asks a completely random hippie they find on a street to test their hyper awesome innovative revolutionary cooler prototype for them, and he quickly registers on some forum(s) to share it (and is allowed to) with people just because he loves the community and blabla. Yeah and I am Satan Claus.

    I think at this point, it would be a good idea to close the thread (again), it seems all questions have been asked, all have been answered and there seems little point in letting individuals derail it further, thanks for everyones contribution and for the OP sharing his findings with us.
