Water-jacket with built-in SocketA shim.. (0 Comments) (link)
 Friday, 12-January-2001  12:11:22 (GMT +10) - by Agg

This is interesting - TheGOOM.com (short for the German Overclocking Online Mag) are making these water jackets:


You can see they have designed the unit with holes for the SocketA chip "feet" and room for the bridges and SMD components. It'll certainly help stabilise the jacket on the core (and don't I know how important that is) .. but it means you can only use it on SocketA chips, which might affect how long it stays useful for. Also, being (seemingly) aluminium, you have to be careful if using it in the same system as copper equipment, or galvanic corrosion may occur (which is Bad, as DansData recently discovered).

More info on their site here (in German). There's apparently a review unit on the way, so we'll see.
