Water cooling for PCs is not something new and has been around for several years. In the past if you wanted to use water cooling you would have to locate and purchase the individual parts and assemble them, fill the system up with coolant, and leak test it. Recently there has been a surge in All in one, or AIO watercooling kits. AIO kits come from the manufacture ready to install and run. They are assembled, filled, and leak tested. Many installations are just as easy as installing an air cooler. The first AIO water cooling setup was brought to market a few years ago by AseTek. AseTek OEM’s this kits for practically every manufacture such as Cooler Master, Corsair, XigmaTek, Enermax, and many others. However, AseTek isn’t the only game in town. Swiftech, one of the industry leaders in water cooling for years recently partnered up with Cooler Master to bring the Glacer 240L all in one liquid CPU cooler to market. This is not the typical all in one liquid cooler. The major feature that sets the Cooler Master Glacer 240L apart from the rest of the crowd is the expandability feature. If the user so desires, they can disassemble the kit, add additional waterblocks, such as GPU or memory blocks, change the coolant, etc. This is a hybrid kit, it comes as an all in one, but can be used as component level water cooling.
