Previously leaked plans referred to as into query whether or not current CPU coolers would have the ability to work with Intel’s upcoming Alder Lake processors, due to a new LGA 1700 socket, and an elongated built-in warmth spreader (IHS) and interposer design. Be that as it could, Phanteks is not fretting, no less than with reference to its Glacier One 360MPH.
The Glacier One 360MPH is a new all-in-one liquid CPU cooler. As the mannequin title suggests, it is a huge one, with a 360mm radiator housing three 120mm followers housed within the firm’s Halos RGB fan frames.
As it stands, the product page highlights assist for all trendy CPU sockets, together with Intel LGA 115x, 1200, 1366, 2011, 2011-3, and 2066, and AMD AM4, sTRX4, and TR4. At some level, Phanteks will add LGA 1700 to the combo as effectively.
“The Glacier One 360MPH will also support the upcoming LGA 1700 socket through Phanteks’ customer support for users who purchase the Glacier One 360MPH,” Phanteks says.
In different phrases, it will supply some sort of bracket package when Alder Lake arrives. Phanteks doesn’t say if it will be a free improve (I’d hope so), solely that prospects will must request it via the corporate’s assist channel.
This suggests to me that different current coolers would possibly get the identical remedy, although I’m not conscious of any overt bulletins outdoors of this one. It’s nonetheless early days although—Alder Lake is rumored to reach in the direction of the top of the yr, maybe in November.
Socket assist apart, this appears to be like like a burly cooling answer. It options a pump designed by Asetek (as is the case with many AIO coolers), with a excessive stream price impeller and a pure copper cold-plate with skived fins. The pump housing appears to be like fairly slick, with a tempered glass “Infinity Mirror” creating a 3D RGB impact.
Phanteks is claiming its cooler can cut back temps dramatically. Its personal testing exhibits an Intel Core i7 10700K processor going from 68.2°C all the way in which all the way down to 24.7°C when switching from Intel’s inventory air cooler to the Glacier One 360MPH. We’ve not examined this cooler ourselves, although, so in the intervening time we are able to solely take the corporate’s phrase on its figures.
There’s additionally a smaller 240MPH variant with a 240mm radiator. According to Phanteks, it could possibly cool the identical chip all the way down to 25.9°C, suggesting it performs almost in addition to the 360mm mannequin.
Interestingly sufficient, Phanteks solely particularly mentions the 360MPH with reference to future assist for Alder Lake, although I see no purpose why the 240MPH wouldn’t get the identical remedy. In any occasion, the 360MPH will be out there in June for $200. There’s no point out of value for the 240MPH.
