Benchmark Scores I once clocked a Celeron-300A to 564MHz on an Abit BE6 and it scored over 9000.
Arctic are a Swiss/German company and Asetek's patent is only defensible in the USA. They simply won't sell this product in the US.
Huh, interesting.
Competition is good for progress and improvements, and that patent is a disaster - but thankfully the global market is a truckload bigger than just the US.
I should spend more time looking at the Asian/Euro AIOs!

The presence of all three AIOs on Arctic's US Amazon store would indicate otherwise.

I think the issue with Asetek is if they are manufactured or designed outside of Europe as the Alphacool Eisbaer is a unit unlike any Asetek based AIO. Funnily enough my 2 favourite coolers are the Alphacool 420 Eisbaer and the Cooler Master Nepton 280 which are both non Asetek designs.

Huh, interesting.

It has really gimped the AIO market. Deepcool's newest AIOs look really interesting with that bladder unit to exhaust air though.

F**k Asetek... great example of a company sitting on one design and just patent trolling everyone else.

But the reason for the new pump designs making it N/A side is because the pump, block combination patent expired last a year or two ago.

Yay!
