    CoolIT Systems announced the new Workstation Cooler, a CPU liquid cooling device utilizing CoolIT’s patented, award-winning MTEC technology. With this device, small/medium businesses, video production/pro audio studios, game developers, government offices, and churches can maximize the performance from their workstation PC. Because workstations and servers typically require power-intensive software applications, the CPU and other internal computing hardware are placed under a heavy load which can in some cases, cause the entire system to overheat or fail.

    CoolIT Systems MTEC technology utilizes a combination of liquid cooling and thermoelectric cooling to aggressively remove heat and dissipate it from the workstation. The end result is heightened computing performance due to a 40% reduction in CPU temperature, lower noise levels, and enhanced reliability since the CPU doesn’t experience such dynamic fluctuations in temperature. The Workstation Cooler also includes CoolIT’s MTEC Control Center which enables software control of the chiller and uses patented predictive cooling to stabilize fluctuations in CPU temp. As an added layer of security, the control center is self monitoring. It supports event based email notification and can even securely shut down a server in case of an emergency.

    “We’re incredibly excited to bring this technology to the workstation market” said Geoff Lyon, CEO of CoolIT Systems. “CoolIT has already developed an outstanding reputation amongst the PC enthusiast/gaming community and the workstation market has very similar needs: reliable, high performance computing. That’s what we deliver” adds Lyon.

    The Workstation Cooler was recently implemented by PREO Software, a Canadian company that markets print management software designed to educate the end-user as to the true cost of print. Their servers were generating a tremendous amount of heat and noise which became unbearable due to its central location next to the common reception area and board room. Rather than investing in an expensive dedicated server room, Preo chose to incorporate the CoolIT Workstation Cooler into their server. “The benefits of this solution for Preo Software are two fold: noise reduction and increased hardware temperature consistency for prolonged hardware life. We were also surprised by how little the system cost” remarked Caine Chow, Senior Software Developer at Preo Software Inc.

    The CoolIT Workstation Cooler is available now from CoolIT Systems starting at $449.

    not a good idea if the system ends up leaking, man what a major expenditure it would be on a system, to replace all the parts when they get fried by water.

    I currently work on an Aluminium Refinery site. At the heart of the plant are 8 large motors coupled to 'Wirth Pumps' that pump the process through the plant, each motor is supplied by very large variable speed drives inwhich the rectifiers are water cooled. That's alot of money in dowtime if just 1 pump is offline, but it is the only efficient way to remove the excessive heat in the drives. If these practices are becoming increasingly popular in industry, why not to the server market. Coolit seems reliable.

    those drives are probably not as sensitive as Personal Computer parts even Servers are same Materials.

    I would say more sensitive as the drives are 3.3Kv with very high current deliveries. Not a good mix with any type of liquid, but they still use them.

    Will it fit S771? Looks like a nice little set, would love to see some actual performance numbers.

    They did fine with the enthusiast market, though some review sites and mags pin the coolit as good at idle, but no better than decent water cooling under load. I can see this becoming a mainstay in the IT environment. Quiet Cooling and hassle free maintenance.
