Antec Announces New Liquid CPU Cooler Series Mercury RGB Starting At 81 Euros
Antec, one of the most senior names in cases, power supplies and cooling for the PC Gaming and PC DIY market, are launching a new series of All-in-One Liquid CPU Cooling, the Mercury RGB series.
Antec Announces New Mercury RGB Series Coolers Priced From 81 to 136 Euros
The new Antec Mercury RGB CPU Cooler Series is engineered to keep the CPU cool for up to 40,000 hours. Manufactured with high-quality components, the products are proven to last at least five years - a benchmark of quality that surpasses the standard also backed by the Antec 5-year warranty period. The Mercury RGB models are equipped with non-lubricated graphite bearings and a durable ceramics axis in a carbon-metal construction. The Mercury RGB models feature an intelligent PWM RGB LED fan with 30 LEDs which can be synced via motherboard connection or the integrated RGB hub. The multiple RGB modes are a single color, breathing, flashing and gradient color cycling.
The high-performance pump with an ultra-quiet closed impeller design and three-phase motor enables the maximum amount of water circulation, keeping the system running cool and quiet. The pump features a high coolant pressure (2.3m water pressure; flow rate of 3.5 l / minute) and a lower-fan noise. PTFE-coated tubing provides excellent durability and high-temperature resistance. Furthermore, the RGB models feature Nylon-braided tube sleeves. The Mercury is easily set up via plugging into a -Pin motherboard connector and SATA power (through an included adapter cable).
Jumping into the very competitive space of RGB AIO Coolers Antec has some tough competition from brands like Corsair, Cooler Master, NZXT and Deepcool and frankly, at this price point, it seems like there isn't a whole lot that differentiates it from the pack. One upside though is the fact that the pump block LEDs change color based on the temperature of the coolant. Aside from that this seems like another series of AIOs that aren't priced well.
Pricing And Availability
The Antec Mercury coolers are commercially available now for 81 Euros (Mercury 120 RGB), 109 Euros (Mercury 240 RGB) and 136 Euros (Mercury 360 RGB).
