Asetek know a thing or two when it comes to water cooling, they already have some solid solutions on the market but this week they announced their next generation of liquid filled cooling solutions.
The new Gen4 cold plate has been paired up with an all new pump design, providing better overall cooling efficiency. The new pump operates at a higher pressure, distributes more coolant and the whole system provides 20% less thermal resistance than their previous generation of coolers.

The new cooler will be available in two models, a 120mm radiator and 140mm radiator, it is interesting that they have a 140mm solution, hot on the heels of the recently announced 140mm solution from NZXT.

The system advances on the split-flow design of their previous models and introduces new micro-channel technology. "we are pushing the theoretical performance limits of copper cold plate design,” André Sloth Eriksen, founder and chief executive of Asetek
Along with the new coolers comes the updated ChillControl VI software, offering better temperature monitoring, improved fan curve sliders and lighting controls for the system. Overall the new cooler and software should offer a serious performance gain for enthusiast cooling users and Asetek say the new units will be hitting retail very soon.
