Asetek Introduces Gen4 Products with 20% Less Thermal Resistance at the Pump/Cold Plate and New ChillControl VI Software
Monday, 29 October 2012 00:00
Asetek Inc., the world’s leading supplier of liquid cooling for the computer industry and the inventor of sealed loop, all-in-one liquid cooling, today announced its fourth generation of products based on this patented technology. Asetek is simultaneously releasing the next generation of their flagship ChillControl™ software, giving computer enthusiasts greater control over acoustics tuning, temperature monitoring and cooling performance.Asetek Gen4 micro-channel cold plate (left) incorporates center inlet, dual outlet flow first introduced in Asetek WaterChill Antarctic design
“Asetek Gen4 products combine the micro-channel cold plate technology from our Gen3 products with the center inlet, split-flow design of Asetek’s WaterChill Antarctica architecture cold plates,” said André Sloth Eriksen, Founder and CEO of Asetek. “The split-flow Antarctica architecture was state-of-the art when we introduced it back in 2004 and by combining it with newer micro-channel technology, we are pushing the theoretical performance limits of copper cold plate design.“
The new Gen4 cold plate is paired with a completely redesigned pump that provides better coldplate efficiency. Asetek’s new pump produces higher pressure and distributes coolant more optimally. Gen4 products provide 20% less thermal resistance than the previous generation, resulting in lower CPU core temperatures.. This provides computer enthusiasts the highest thermal headroom for overclocking at the lowest noise possible.

Chill Control VI adds CPU core temperature reporting into its dashboard for at-a-glance monitoring of the overall cooling system performance. Intuitive fan curve sliders enable finer control over fan profiles to fit user performance and noise preferences. New lighting controls add color cross-fade capability based on liquid temperature or time intervals.
Do-it-yourself enthusiasts can expect Asetek’s Gen4 based products, including the first ever DIY all-in-one liquid coolers with 140mm and 280mm radiators, to be available from Asetek’s partner network soon.
