CoolIT Systems Extends Liquid Cooling Technology to the Workstation/Server Market
"Workstation users can now benefit from enhanced CPU performance, lower noise levels, and enhanced reliability"

CoolIT Systems announces the new Workstation Cooler, a CPU liquid cooling device utilizing CoolIT’s patented, award-winning MTEC technology. With this device, small/medium businesses, video production/pro audio studios, game developers, government offices, and churches can maximize the performance from their workstation PC. Because workstations and servers typically require power-intensive software applications, the CPU and other internal computing hardware are placed under a heavy load which can in some cases, cause the entire system to overheat or fail.
CoolIT Systems MTEC technology utilizes a combination of liquid cooling and thermoelectric cooling to aggressively remove heat and dissipate it from the workstation. The end result is heightened computing performance due to a 40% reduction in CPU temperature, lower noise levels, and enhanced reliability since the CPU doesn’t experience such dynamic fluctuations in temperature. The Workstation Cooler also includes CoolIT’s MTEC™ Control Center which enables software control of the chiller and uses patented predictive cooling ™ to stabilize fluctuations in CPU temp. As an added layer of security, the control center is self monitoring. It supports event based email notification and can even securely shut down a server in case of an emergency.
“We’re incredibly excited to bring this technology to the workstation market” said Geoff Lyon, CEO of CoolIT Systems. “CoolIT has already developed an outstanding reputation amongst the PC enthusiast/gaming community and the workstation market has very similar needs: reliable, high performance computing. That’s what we deliver” adds Lyon.
The Workstation Cooler was recently implemented by PREO Software, a Canadian company that markets print management software designed to educate the end-user as to the true cost of print. Their servers were generating a tremendous amount of heat and noise which became unbearable due to its central location next to the common reception area and board room. Rather than investing in an expensive dedicated server room, Preo chose to incorporate the CoolIT Workstation Cooler into their server. “The benefits of this solution for Preo Software are two fold: noise reduction and increased hardware temperature consistency for prolonged hardware life. We were also surprised by how little the system cost” remarked Caine Chow, Senior Software Developer at Preo Software Inc.
The CoolIT Workstation Cooler is available now from CoolIT Systems starting at $449.
