Cooler Master designs and manufactures open loop and closed loop liquid cooling solutions for applications that range from data centers to desktop computing. Each core component can be custom designed for our customers requirements, such as: pump, cold plate, reservoir, fan and more. In addition, Cooler Master can combine the best of air cooling and liquid cooling solutions for hybrid cooling to fulfill any design requirement with optimal results.
WORKING PRINCIPAL OF LIQUID COOLING
The concept of a liquid cooling system is to quickly take the heat from a heat source and move it where it can be expelled efficiently. To do so, tubes carry liquid from the reservoir to a cold plate that is directly attached to the heat source, where the heat transfer is optimized. The heated liquid then moves on to a radiator where fans use cold air to move away the heat from the liquid. The cooled liquid is then redirected back to the reservoir for the cycle to repeat.
Usually located above the cold plate or at the bottom of the reservoir, the pump is responsible to move the liquid within the system’s loop and provide enough pressure for the circulation of the liquid to happen at a rate fast enough to clear through the radiator and cold plate fins for maximum heat transfer. Here are examples of a few different type of pumps: G2 Pump, Dual rotor pump, AIO dual chamber pump , Rotor visible pump.
The cold plate is a key component of open and closed loop for liquid cooling, as it provides direct contact with the heat source. Cold plates produced from the Cooler Master factory are made with precision using our in-house state-of-the-art machinery. We offer customize, scalable and time-to-market delivery of cold plate solutions for desktop components, inverter systems used in solar panels, advanced driver assistance systems in automotive industry and more. Here are some the types of fins we offer for our cold plates:
For high power density applications with small die surface such as desktop CPUs and GPUs.
For low power density applications with larger cooling surface areas.
For low power application with small pump or low profile applications with limited flow rate.
For larger and taller cold plate designs such as inverters.
The reservoir can provide many advantages. Acting as buffer tank for the liquid in the loop, it helps monitor liquid levels and provide an easy access for maintenance. More complex reservoir design also act as loop pressure control system and can be adapted to send notifications when liquid levels are getting low. Cooler Master possesses the knowledge and capacity to design and manufacture adapted reservoirs for many applications.
The main means of transport for the liquid to circulate the loop. The tubing material can vary greatly depending on the application. While metal tubing offer the best permeation rate, the corrosion risks need to be considered as well as the flexibility of the installation. Various plastic tubing, offer different rates of permeation but are more flexible, meaning they can be easily adjusted to fit within the installation and can provide a level of simplicity for maintenance.
Essential to perform quick maintenance on the liquid cooling system, the quick connector allows for fast removal of parts without having to drain the loop. While the area where the connector joins with the tubing is the most likely to leak, the intricate design is specially targeted at reducing this risk while providing the most maneuverability.
