'The LCLC requires no service after sales and an easy instalment. Also important for OEM customers our solution offers high form factor flexibility, daisy-chain options, lifetime of 50.000 hours and cost efficiency”
Intel Developer Forum, San Francisco, September 26th, 2006. Despite the arrival of multi-core CPUs with lower overall power consumption, system level thermal management faces increasing noise challenges. Consumers are displaying clear preferences for diversified and, especially, smaller form factors why the future use of traditional heatsink and heatpipe coolers will be possible only with significant tradeoffs on either noise or performance.
At Asetek’s IDF stand (booth # 106) the Low Cost Liquid Cooling (LCLC) solution is on display in a Digital Home system. Live demonstrations include a micro ATX Digital Home (Intel® Core™2 Duo) system noise reduced from 34 dBA to less than 25 dBA (equal to bedroom ambient).
“The LCLC solution is an ultra compact, self-contained, highly reliable, and integrated liquid cooling solution, which offers high performance at really low noise levels”, states Martin Schousboe, VP of Sales at Asetek. “Almost 3 years in the making we can now present a superior technology platform that requires no service after sales and an easy instalment. Also important for OEM customers our solution offers high form factor flexibility, daisy-chain options, lifetime of 50.000 hours and cost efficiency”.
Founder and CEO André S. Eriksen has firm confidence in Asetek’s ability to spearhead the OEM market’s transition to liquid cooled platforms: “Correctly manufactured, tested and validated the use of liquid cooling in various PC platforms is no more dramatic than when the car industry turned to liquid to cool the engine block of cars. We have firsthand knowledge of the quality, reliability and lifetime expectations in the computer OEM market and there is not a shadow of doubt that we can meet these expectations with the LCLC solutions”.
