With the aqua computer cuplex kryos NEXT , the manufacturer specializing in water cooling presents a CPU water cooler that replaces the cuplex, which has been available for 15 years, and provides even more efficient cooling thanks to improved flow, reduced structure size and optimized contact between CPU and cooler. Thus, the German Wakü specialist continues to claim the crown among the CPU water coolers, which is not least due to the usual care of experienced engineers, who set new standards in cooling performance through various analyzes, optimization procedures and tests.
The aqua computer cuplex kryos NEXT CPU water cooler at a glance:
- CPU water cooler from aqua computer
- Cooler bottom with extremely fine microstructure (below 200 μm)
- Nickel-plated housing + nickel-plated copper base
- Customizable CPU / cooler contact thanks to VARIO technology
- VISION module with OLED display
- Two G1 / 4-inch connectors available
- Compatible with Intel sockets of the 115x series
- Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut thermal grease included (0.5 grams)
Optimized CPU water cooler with high performance & stylish designThe aqua computer cuplex kryos NEXT surpasses the previously unattained cooling performance of its already successful predecessor and thus represents a new milestone in the development of CPU water coolers. The cooler base is equipped with an extremely fine microstructure whose structure width is less than 200 μm. For optimum distribution of the coolant, use is made of a flat nozzle integrated in the housing, whereby the coolant flows in the middle of the microstructure and is discharged from there in two directions.
The cuplex kryos NEXT is available in different versions, this being the completely nickel-plated version, which has a nickel-plated brass case and a nickel-plated copper base and whose outstanding appearance is interrupted only by the stainless steel plates of the mounting system.
Perfectly aligned thanks to VARIO - Adjustable geometry of the radiator baseThanks to the ingenious VARIO technology, the cuplex kryos NEXT can be perfectly adapted to all possible heatspreader forms of different processors. It does not matter whether flat, convex or concave, with four externally accessible adjustment screws, the bearing surface of the CPU cooler can be readjusted and thus perfectly adapted to the heatspreader. According to internal tests of aqua computer, the cooling performance of processors with a TDP of 100 watts can be optimized by about two degrees. The adjustment can be made during operation so that the user can read the effects of his changes directly.
Including VISION module with OLED display & powerful electronicsThe special feature of this model of the cuplex kryos NEXT cooler is the state-of-the-art VISION technology, which uses a temperature sensor for the cooling medium as well as its own microprocessor to control the cooler housing integrated OLED graphic display, with a resolution of 128 x 64 pixels to display useful information there.
Thus, the water temperature measurement is integrated directly into the cooler and can be displayed in combination with the aquasuite software in addition to a variety of other hardware data, such as processor load, directly in the freely configurable display. In addition, in addition to the USB interface to the PC and the aquabus interface for data exchange with an aquaero 5 or 6, the connection option for a flow sensor or alternatively alarm output. However, it should be noted that a maximum of two connection cables can be routed into the cooler and the user must therefore decide which components he wants to connect.
Easy installation - ideally suited for the Intel Socket 115xThe mounting system of the cuplex kryos NEXT is very high-quality processed and allows an uncomplicated installation on various Intel sockets of the 115x series. Two solid stainless steel sheets with a material thickness of 2.5 millimeters and a total of four pressed nickel-plated spring cups produce a tidy and elegant appearance when installed. This is achieved mainly by the low height and the hidden in the spring cups knurled screws and springs, which are provided for the actual attachment of the radiator on the motherboard. The thumbscrews can either be conveniently mounted by hand or with the help of a hexagon socket wrench. In addition, this cooler version is equipped with a backplate and a silicone cover, which additionally stabilizes the mainboard.
Perfectly combined with Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut Thermal PasteFor optimal performance, each cuplex kryos NEXT CPU water cooler also comes with a 0.5 gram syringe of thermal-conductive Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut Thermal Compound, which should last for about five months. Thanks to the supplied plastic spatula and the low viscosity of the thermal grease, it can also be very well distributed between CPU and water cooler.
Note: This product will be delivered without the necessary connections to provide the buyer with maximum freedom in assembling the water cooling system.
