The Aguatec Blue Ice at first sight can be seen as a very small watercooling setup. It has antifreeze solution as the liquid, a copper heat sink as the radiator, a turbine to act as the pump, and a fan to cool down the whole setup. This type of design is very innovative as it minimizes the size and setup of typical watercooling kits. The heat sink is compact and will fit on all socket 478 motherboards. The question now remains--will it perform as well as it looks? Read on to find out!
Aguatec Blue Ice CP-101
I received the Aguatec Blue Ice in a white cardboard box sealed extremely tight. There were no images or descriptions on the box. Opening the box revealed the heat sink, wrapped in a plastic wrapper. Ripping off the plastic wrapper revealed one beautiful heat sink.
Normally, I take pictures with all my room lights on and turn off the camera flash, but it was quite hard to capture the color of the antifreeze solution. I had to turn on the camera flash in order to show the antifreeze solution.
From the top view, you can see that there are 5 pipes that connect one side to the other. These pipes carry the antifreeze solution across the copper fins, acting like a heat pipe while the copper fins act like a radiator.
