Asetek Low Cost Liquid Cooling (LCLC)


“Low Cost Liquid Cooling” or simply LCLC is the name of the latest water cooling kit from Asetek. It doesn’t have a fancy name however its name says it all: it is a cheap water cooler targeted to OEMs. This kit comes already pre-assembled and has only two parts, meaning that OEMs will be able to offer a water cooler solution to their costumers for an affordable price without needing to go through the hassle of assembling complicated parts. Let’s take a look at it.

Water cooling kits usually have four parts: a pump, a reservoir, a heat exchanger (radiator) and one or more cold plates (a.k.a. CPU block). On Asetek’s Low Cost Liquid Cooling the pump is assembled on top of the CPU cold plate and there is no reservoir as the system comes with the coolant liquid already installed inside the system.

This system allows daisy chaining, meaning that you can also install a VGA block and/or a chipset block to the system.

The CPU cold plate is made of copper, as you can see in Figure 2.

The heat exchanger we saw used copper fins, as you can see in Figure 3. The heat exchanger can be ordered from a single 80 mm unit up to two 120 mm units, depending on the OEM needs.
