Antec has just announced their newest generation of all-in-one CPU coolers – the Mercury series. This new series is available in three sizes (120, 240 and 360) and includes an RGB variant of all three sizes.
The new Antec Mercury CPU Cooler Series is engineered to keep the CPU cool for up to 50,000 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 five-year warranty period. The Mercury models are equipped with non-lubricated graphite bearings and a durable ceramics axis in a carbon-metal construction. The radiator features an arrangement of high-density 16 FPI (fins per inch) to achieve a cooling performance perfectly suitable for any enthusiast’s needs. Ideally spaced at 2.8 mm, the fins allow for cool air to pass through efficiently.
All Mercury models are built around a new sealed and silent pump, which consists of a three-phase motor promoting a rapid liquid circulation, helping the CPU to keep cool while it is being pushed to its limits. The pump features a high coolant pressure (2.3m water pressure; flow rate of 3.5 l / minute) & lower-fan noise. The Mercury is easily set up via plugging into a 3-Pin motherboard connector and SATA power (through an included adapter cable).
The pump-block on the standard Mercury versions feature three LEDs, which indicate coolant temperature. Blue indicates <48°C, green indicates 49-60°C, and red indicates >60°C.
The Mercury RGB series works in perfect harmony with ASUS Aura Sync – simply plug into the RGB header on an ASUS Aura-enabled motherboard to access a world of color and control schemes for endless variety.
Antec Mercury Features
