Fremont, CA August 5, 2010 Antec, Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, today announced the full availability of its brand new line of CPU coolers: the KHLER series. Three models, the KHLER Box, KHLER Shelf and KHLER Flow, make up the series, providing users with an assortment of options when selecting an optimal CPU cooling solution.
The KHLER Box CPU cooler is symmetrical and rotatable 90, 180 and 270 in order to coordinate seamlessly with interior airflow, and offers a powerful choice for cooling high-powered builds. Equipped with a whisper-quiet 120 mm Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) fan positioned between two massive aluminum heat sinks, the KHLER Box is capable of blowing as much as 68.2 CFM or operating as quiet as 11.35 dBA, all while achieving maximum heat conduction and airflow. To offer unmatched heat transference, the KHLER Box boasts eight embedded copper heat pipes and is suitable for chassis heights up to 7, offering versatile, powerful cooling performance for high-power gaming and overclocking applications.
The KHLER Shelf features a 120 mm PWM fan with a downward airflow design to blow cool air over an aluminum heat sink positioned parallel to the plane of the motherboard, resulting in 10 to 20 mm more clearance than similarly built competing heat sinks. Since the fan is positioned on top of the heat sink, the KHLER Shelf also provides airflow to near-CPU components, improving overall thermal dissipation and component reliability ideal for multi-core CPU builds suffering from high motherboard temperatures. This cooler also comes with seven copper heat pipes arranged in a space-saving configuration featuring with a narrow base that fits easily into tight spaces with tall chipsets and heat sinks by the CPU socket great for replacements and upgrades onto densely packed motherboards for optimal heat transference.
Rounding out the series is the KHLER Flow CPU cooler, which features a vertical heat sink that can be re-positioned to cooperate with the cases existing intake and exhaust fans. This cooler is built with a 120 mm PWM fan that works with the enclosures natural airflow capabilities and sets up a dynamic airflow pattern that sweeps through the entire case, without the turbulence or counter currents typically associated with other CPU coolers. At 122 mm wide and 157 mm high, it fits easily into standard cases without the need for unnecessary drilling and cutting. Additionally, the cooler comes with seven copper heat pipes for excellent heat transference, and includes rubber fan grommets to reduce vibration.
Most innovations in CPU cooling were designed to fit bulky and unmanageable heatpipe-based air coolers into a chassis, said Scott Richards, senior vice president of Antec. The new KHLER line of CPU coolers alter this thought process and offer users diverse cooling solutions to handle each individual users needs, helping to ensure better performance and improved system cooling.
The KHLER Box, KHLER Shelf and KHLER Flow are all available for $59.95 through major retailers, e-tailers and distributors. Each model is backed by Antecs Quality 2-Year (AQ2) Limited Warranty on parts and labor.
