ID-Cooling Intros the Hunter Duet II CPU+VGA AIO Liquid Cooler

ID-Cooling introduced the second edition of its Hunter Duet dual-block CPU + VGA closed-loop cooler. The new Hunter Duet II features improvements to the CPU and VGA pump-blocks that increase coolant pressure, and 50% higher heat dissipation thanks to the larger 360 mm x 120 mm radiator, compared to its predecessor's 240 mm x 120 mm. Like its predecessor, the design of the Hunter Duet II includes two pump blocks - a conventional block over the CPU, and one over the GPU. The GPU component features a cooler shroud with a fan which ventilates aluminium heatsinks over the memory and VRM.

The two blocks are attached in serial, while the heat is dissipated by the radiator, ventilated by three included 120 mm fans. The cooler has a combined thermal capacity of 500W. The Hunter Duet II supports newer CPU socket types, including AM4, LGA2066, LGA2011(v3), LGA115x, AM3(+), and FM2(+). Its VGA component supports most GPUs with mount-hole spacing of 58.4 mm and 53.3 mm. Its blocks feature ceramic bearings. The company didn't reveal pricing or availability information.

Completely overclocked a lot of people can hit that 500w limit. I wonder if better fans would increase that.

Lol, this setup is for mid range users and 500w its more than enough for some overclocked staff..

High-end overclockers going for custom build water loop.

CoolerMaster and Thermaltake(if I remember correctly) both used to offer similar solutions few years back. None of those werent particularly great but with larger radiators things might be different.

Completely OC'ed Skylake-X almost hits that limit alone :laugh:

To effectively cool the GPU's VRAM and VRM, a full coverage water block is needed. I'm fairly sure this solution uses thermal pads like any air cooled card, so this is no better than any of the AIO GPU adapters already on the market (NZXT, Corsair). It's saving grace may be it's cost savings over using separate coolers (or a custom loop), if the price is below $200.

Not even close but okay.

When you factor in VRM heat yes it can.

You use an unreasonable processor to prove me wrong. That's a HUGE chip and anyone using a split AIO to cool it is an idiot.

Just admit you are wrong an move on. Jesus skylake-x when overclocked to the hilt is too much power on its own.

Thats full system power consumption. Not just the CPU so its not quite accurate too say a skylake x cpu alone can reach 500w.

And even a 1080Ti won't always hit 300w which should give the CPU enough headroom in terms of thermals. However as I stated before and I'll just ask you; who is really going to put that high end of a chip and GPU together in an AIO loop? I can see this being used with normal i5s/i7s (7700k even) and 1070/1080 cards. Typically that's where the AIOs sit in.

A reference 1080ti will never hit 300w without hardmods.

By itself a heavily overclocked 10 core skylake x chip can break 400w. That is not a situation a normal aio will ever deal with however it can happen without question. The aio part has nothing to do with your actual statement being wrong.

At least this looks cleaner than separate AIOs on CPU and GPU. I thought for a while getting the first version, but nah.

Thermaltake still have water 3.0 Ultimate, 360mm Rad but no GPU block,
i wonder how theu will perform since the rad its pretty big for a small pump ...

Is zotac gtx 1070 mini card compatible with this cooler
