Raijintek unveiled its first liquid cooler that works without a prime-mover for the coolant (i.e. no pump). Further, its radiator lacks fans (i.e. no power, no noise). This closed-loop cooler works in the same principle as a heat pipe, with a combination of convention and phase-change doing the heavy lifting of heat-transfer. Heat from the source (your CPU) causes the special coolant to change phase to vapor, move to the heat-exchanger (radiator), where it condenses back to liquid, and flows back down to the block. We saw this contraption in action, and we can tell you that it works. It is ready for the real-world. Raijintek spent vast amounts of R&D budget developing this technology, and has patented it in most markets. We could see the first products based on this technology very soon.
