    Hey anyone else excited about this ? Looks like its going to be good, small and compact too, would love to know more about how it works.

    quote from tony on ocz forums
    "Hydrojet should be 2 to 3 months maybe less and has awesome cooling capabilities...model shown cools 350W heatload"

    Hope OCUK get some in !!

    Yeah, pics have been around a while...looks very intereting.

    Can cool 350W? That's insane...if true. It could just be some PR crap though, it's happened before.

    "Allows processors to run stable under massive overclocking conditions"

    yeah right, bet it still has high temps on quads too.

    Cool OR 350watt it should be.

    It could possibly keep a 350watt CPU (if they exist in mainstream) from shutting down, i.e. less than 100 degC

    Could it keep a 150W CPU at 20 degress over ambient??? I doubt it, not unless the fan (where is it by the way?) spins at aprox. 10,000 rpm and makes about 100dB.

    A "proper" w/c set up with, say, a 120.2 will struggle with 350W and that has much more surface area and 2 120mm fans. Noisy fans (40dB+) will be required even here.

    Unless David Blaine was part of the design team, I would take it all with a pinch of salt, at least until we get some neutral comparative reviews.
