DeepCool Launches The WaterElement 120K – Support For LGA 1150 Included
Manufacturer DeepCool has finally listed its first integrated water-cooling system. It is a part of the company’s GameStorm series and is called the Water Element 120K. The system uses a cold row ball bearing, 120mm thin fan. The integrated water-cooling system is listed finally after a delay of five months since its launch at this year’s CES ’14. The device is a replacement in the GameStorm series and is the first of it to come in the black color. The product will be available from 28th May and can be purchased for $ 299.
WaterElement 120K Comes With a Life Expectancy of 120,000 Hours – Speed Is 2800 +/- 10%.
DeepCool’s WaterElement 120K has several features which make it a quality product. The RPM of the water pump in the device is 2800 RPM with variances of around 10% expected. The WaterElement 120K promises durability with a life expectancy of 120,000 hours. In simple terms, this is expected to give the WaterElement 120K a life expectancy of around 14 years, which is an impressive claim. On the surface of the cooler, there is a GameStorm logo. This can also serve a second purpose of housing built-in LED lights for the device. The WaterElement 120K also includes support for almost the entire range of Intel’s boards supporting LGA. Support is included in the product for LGA 1366 (discontinued), LGA 2011 (Sandy Bridge-E/EP, Ivy Bridge E/EP, EP – Xeon), LGA 1156(discontinued), LGA 1155 (Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge) and most importantly the LGA 1150, which is to be the socket used by upcoming Broadwell. It is also currently used by the Haswell series of processors.
In addition to support for Intel sockets, the WaterElement 120K also supports AMD’s FM and AM line of sockets. Support on the WaterElement 120K includes compatibility for FM1 (Fusion and Athlon II), FM2 (Trinity and Richland), AM3(Phenom II, Athlon II, Sempron, Opteron 138x) AM3+ (Phenom II, Athlon II, Opteron, FX), and AM2 (Athlon 64, Athlon 64 x2, Athlon 64 FX, Opteron, Sempron, Phenom). As it can be seen, support for both Intel’s and AMD’s sockets grant the WaterElement 120K compatibility and support for almost all the mainstream processor platforms. The WaterElement 120K features a 120mm hydraulic bearing fan. Parameter values for the device are 600 +/- 150 – 1800+/- 10%. Maximum wind and pressure ratings for the WaterElement 120K are 1.97mm, H2O 61.93 FCM. Noise reading for the fan is 18.2 – 32.4 dB.
