Coolermaster Aquagate Mini Review
The Coolermaster Aquagate Mini was recently unveiled at CeBit 2005, touted to
be a simple and easy water cooling setup. VR-Zone will show you how easy can this be and how efficient is it against the Hyper 48 combo.
The Coolermaster Aquagate Mini was recently unveiled at CeBit 2005, and was touted to
be a simple and easy water cooling setup. Many power users have been interested in water cooling, but the idea of setting up a water cooling kit has kept many away from water cooling their computers. Cost, relative complexity, and maintenance are just a few of the reasons water cooling has not made it into the mainstream yet. Coolermaster’s Aquagate Mini is looking to capitalize on this market segment, appealing to power users with an easy installation process (similar to that of a standard heatsink fan install), but with the added cooling capability water cooling brings to the table.
With no need to fill or maintain the unit, many of the fears commonly associated with water cooling have gone away. Water spills, leakages, tube bends, and other issues that are commonly associated with water cooling installations will be very uncommon with the Aquagate Mini, primarily because the unit is pre-filled with water and is very easy to install.
