DeepCool Intros GAMMAXX L240 A-RGB and L360 A-RGB AIO Liquid CPU Coolers

DeepCool today updated its GAMMAXX line of all-in-one liquid closed-loop CPU coolers, with the new GAMMAXX L240 A-RGB and L360 A-RGB. These are functionally the same coolers as the GAMMAXX L-series, but with a handful updates, such as an ambient air pressure balancer, and new addressable-RGB LED lighting elements on the pump-block and the included 120 mm fans. Each of the included 120 mm A-RGB fans spins between 500 to 1,800 RPM, pushing up to 69.34 CFM of air-flow, at up to 2.42 mm H₂O static pressure, and up to 30 dBA noise output. The fans feature hydro-dynamic bearings. Among the CPU socket types supported include AM4, LGA1200, and LGA2066. The company didn't reveal pricing.

The socket dimensions for the newly Alder Lake mandated LGA-1700 is about 7.5mm taller than Intel's current LGA 1200 socket and this forcing all mobo architectures later this year to dramatically changing. PCIE 5.0 and DDR5 are the angels of the morning. Meaning that the GAMMAXX will essentially be obsolete by the end of this year since their current chipset AIO water block will not fit or cover the new rectangular Z590 CPU molds. This I think will most certainly make people think twice before investing in a new or upgraded (costly) AIO in the months to come. I am curious in how the industry or AIO sellers will handle this matter? Will buyers in fact get a FREE new fitting Z590 waterblock (with detachable tubing) since by November 2021 (when Alder Lake hits the market) the GAMMAXX essentially becoming unusable. Would you buy a used GAMMAXX installed only for a few months from me before I upgrade to Alder Lake? Thoughts?

A couple of things.

We do not know for sure when Alder Lake will come out. Intel makes a lot of promises.

Also

What are the chances people are going to upgrade to it right off the bat? I am assuming not many.

without a 140mm fan entry, this is of no real interest. It just falls into the category of all the other 120mm fan coolers = no big deal, but it has RGB!.

What makes you certain that this change of socket dimensions will also mean completely new mounting hole spacing?
I don't recall any source (yet) confirming such thing. Socket 11xx/1200 hole spacing can fit such cpus - it's up to intel to keep it or not.

The amazing thing is that no AIO sellers so far have come forward publicly to address this issue or question. And just keeping on selling. Reality is that we are now only 9-10 months away from Alder Lake hitting the ground. My statement to the current AIO sellers: "Please give me a peace of mind and what's ahead before I open my pocketbook." I am not certain of anything but feel that if a CPU is not covered 100% because the chip is simply too large and rectangular, how can it be cooled effectively. Intel on the other hand was smart and already advised many months ago that Alder Lake will force a new LGA1700 motherboard purchase primarily based on the new CPU and socket sizing. We are living in interesting times and now with two (2) Intel CPU generation's being proffered only within a few months of each other. I guess the heat is on from AMD and Intel changing all the rules and taking off the gloves?

Even if they have the information, they can't speak openly because of amazing power of NDAs.

Somehow TR4/TRX4 is waay bigger, and universal aios have no problem supporting it, even though the contact area can be less than half (!)
Anyway, non-square package doesn't automatically mean non-square contact area. Take a look at socket 2066 cpus for example.
This is not a problem.

Can you provide sources for this?
All the information we have regarding the new socket is through leaks, I don't recall Intel ever mentioning "1700" publicly.
