The development of the kryos was the most extensive development of a CPU waterblock in Aqua Computer history. From the outside the unusual attention to every detail is not always visible, but each and every detail was simulated in many variants, manufactured and tested. During testing roughly 70 cooling plates and approximately 20 jet plates were manufactures, all versions developed in CAD added up it were more than 1000! In addition to this an extensive testing rig was used and many tests were conducted. During all these numbers and data collected to gain the last 1/10th of a degree we had only one goal: To make the world's best waterblock! During our testing it was put up against all competitors known to us and we only had that one goal: Being better than the rest of the world. We have achieved this during our testing, and currently 15 cuplex cryos are going around the world to prove their status independently.
The basic principle of the waterblock is rather simple and is very similar to the cuplex pro. The water is injected centrally and afterwards passes through he micro-structure in the copper cooling plate which, unlike many competitors, consists of single pins and not slots. This structure is truly fascinating: It features 1911 single copper pins. The pin size of 9.25x0.45mm and almost every single pin has a unique geometry.
The mounting mechanisms was also revised and changes significantly. On the kryos metal versions we are now using a mount which makes it possible to tighten the screws differently or to over-tighten the. With the special knurled screws we have now implemented a defined end point. The top-of-the-line version with nickel-plated top is now also shipped including a backplate with rubber insulation.
The cuplex kryos is offered in 3 different versions:
The cuplex kryos pro differs by the pure brass top plate and the fact that the backplate is not included. The performance is identical to the XT version.
As an even more affordable entry version we offer the cuplex kryos Delrin. On this waterblock the top plate is made from Delrin and the mounting system is taken from the cupley XT di. To give you an idea: The cooling performance of the Delrin version on a i7-960 on our testing rig falls back by about 0.3°C to 0.5°C compared to the other versions. Hence this waterblock allows you to have one of the most powerful waterblocks available at an extremely affordable price!
For those users looking for something truly special we offer a special cuplex kryos .925 siler edition during the launch. As the name says the cooling plate on this waterblock is made from solid .925 Sterling silver. The thermal conductivity hence lies an additional 10% above the other versions and hence allows even better results. The added price on this version is, due to the high silver prices, 120€ over the cuplex kryos xt, but in today's time you can be sure to have a safe investment and, at least to our knowledge, the best CPU waterblock in the world.

20.12.2012 - 12:24 Uhr Günstiger Kühler mit sehr ordentlichen Leistungsdaten.
08.01.2013 - 17:26 Uhr Der Kühler passte perfekt auf meinen 1155er Sockel und ließ sich durch die mitgelieferten Federn sehr fest anschrauben, so fest, dass ich demnächst die Backplate nachbestellen werde. Da diese wahrscheinlich nicht sehr aufwendig hergestellt wird, wäre es ein nettes Extra gewesen, wenn sie beiliegen würde, denn ohne habe ich ein wenig Angst um mein Mainboard. Die Kühlleistung ist spitze und auch der Durchfluss scheint nicht gestört zu werden. Optisch sieht sie sehr edel aus, meiner Meinung nach noch deutlich besser als auf Bildern. Die mitgelieferte Kühlpaste geht zwar aus vielen Test als Testsieger hervor, mir war sie beim auftragen jedoch um einiges zu dickflüssig. Ich würde das Produkt jederzeit wiederempfehlen, jedoch wenn, dann mit Backplate! ;)
