In the recent year’s all-in-one liquid cooling solutions gained significant popularity thanks to efficiency and quieter operation. However, even with those improvements, a closed loop cooler still needs a pump to enable circulation of liquid as well as at least one fan to maximize cooling efficiency. Seen as the next step, pumpless liquid cooling systems have been discussed by various developers for a while, and Raijintek demonstrated one at Computex 2016. The prototype of Raijintek’s pumpless liquid cooling system is comprised of a completely passive CPU/GPU water block with a copper base (featuring a system of very thin channels to maximize heat dissipating surface area) with two nozzles of different diameter, two tubes as well as a radiator (images are by Hermitage Akihabara).

Today we are having a look at the upgraded 120 mm AIO liquid coolers from Corsair, the single slot H80i GT and the dual slot H100i GTX. Both come...46 by E. Fylladitakis on 11/16/2015
There was a time when liquid-cooling a computer chip was considered to be "extreme", something you'd only see hardcore enthusiasts or overclockers doing. It took a lot of work...140 by E. Fylladitakis on 2/12/2014
