    LEPA is working on a closed-loop liquid CPU cooler, which features an "ultra slim" CPU block. Called the HDB120, this closed-loop cooler appears to have its pump located with the radiator, rather than with the block. As a result, its block is no different in form and function, than a DIY CPU water block. It is just 12 mm-thick, with its coolant tubes factory-fitted on its side, rather than on its top. LEPA plans to unveil (and probably demonstrate) the HDB120 at the upcoming Computex 2012 event.

    If correct, that tubing is very thin?

    At least it looks a bit different and not just another rebranded Asetek/CoolIT design.

    Looks like a take on the good ol' Corsair H70

    rounded rad ??? Uhmmm NICE i see maybe you can change the water

    It looks like a screw-cap to the top.

    This is similar to my H60, capable self contained water cooler.

    Why you say that. The block is just a block. The pump is on the rad instead.

    Where does it say that. The pump is located on the rad.
    The block is like any standard cpu watercooling block.

    Most likely the same as any other closed loop system.

    The block looks small enough to easily fit on a GPU. It would be nice if somebody made mounting kits for it.

    If the pump is durable, this could be configured for a mobile workstation or a gaming laptop. 12mm is nearly 1/2-inch. It's possible.

    There are brackets out there already to mount just about every sealed loop cooler to a video card- from the H50 and the Antec 620 all the way to the H100.
