Koolance 1200W Liquid-Cooled Power Supply

This monster comes out on March 30th, 2007

In 2001, Koolance offered the world's first liquid-cooled ATX power supply (230W). Koolance now sets a new record with the first 1200 watt liquid-cooled power supply!

The PSU-1200ATX-12S features 96A (simultaneous [email protected]) over four 12V rails, modular cables, and 4 PCI-Express connectors for SLI and CrossFire support. It is able to unleash 1200W of continuous (1400W peak) power at greater than 80% efficiency by operating in a completely submerged state. This patent-pending design is superior to even "partly" liquid cooled and heatpipe power supplies. All internal electronics are immersed in a non-conductive fluid and dissipated through an external heat exchanger.

Being self-cooled, Koolance's 1200W PSU requires no connections to any other type of cooling system. The unit comes pre-filled and no ongoing coolant maintenance is required. The quiet 120mm LED fan is temperature-controlled and operates between 25-33dBA. An included temperature sensor allows internal monitoring when used with compatible Koolance systems (TMS, RP-1000, PC3-700, Exos-2, and PC4-1000 series).

The PSU-1200ATX-12S can be used in most ATX, E-ATX, and BTX chassis that provide for 9" (23cm) power supply depths, including cable space. The external heat exchanger is highly adjustable to maximize chassis compatibility. Being slightly wider than the internal power supply, it can be rotated 180? and moved vertically 2" (5cm) to help avoid physical conflicts. Quick disconnect shutoff valves allow for the convenient attachment of the heat exchanger during installation.
Looks like it will be ~$499 when it comes out and weighs in at 15 pounds!

Drag that thing around (in a complete system) to a LAN or 2 and you'll be looking for a replacement quick............ :mrgreen:

Liquid cooled power supplies? I never heard of that before even if it made for the first time in 2001! I wonder who would get one of these :rolleyes:
