Asetek, the industry leading supplier of liquid cooling systems for
computers, announced today availability of its LCLC Liquid Cooling
system for Intel’s new Core i5 processor family. Support for the new
Intel Core i5 CPUs and their LGA1156 socket motherboards by Asetek’s
popular Liquid Cooling Systems is enabled with a new universal mounting
system. This novel mounting mechanism provides a single solution for
cooling Core i5 processors, and all other popular Intel processors
utilizing LGA 775 and LGA 1366 sockets. Manufacturing flexibility is
enhanced and inventory control is simplified by this single liquid
cooling solution for all Intel desktop processors. Now, any Intel
desktop motherboard can support liquid cooling using the same
configurable mounting ring, enabling OEMs to provide liquid cooling’s
benefits of quiet computing and higher performance across a wider range
of systems without increasing inventory costs.
“Asetek’s robust liquid cooling can now easily be configured for any
Intel desktop motherboard. A single mounting ring enables flexible
manufacturing in both high and low volume PC manufacturing settings,”
said Gary Baum, Asetek’s SVP of Marketing. "The new retention ring
helps our OEM customers reduce inventory costs by providing a single
solution to support Intel’s entire mix of socket types."
The solution consists of a single Intel mounting ring and back plate.
The universal mounting ring supports variable position screw inserts to
fit specific socket requirements. OEMs can easily reconfigure part of
their inventory to support a new mix of Intel processor demand. OEM
customers building systems with a high mix of processors may order ring
kits and configure them on the fly for the type of system being built.
