EVGA reveals ROBOCLOCKER LN2 AIO Liquid cooler

Extreme level overclocking has been conducted under LN2 for quite some time, so much so that the image of an LN2 pot, thermos flasks and manual pouring are hallmarks of the craft. 

Vince "KINGPIN" Lucido and Illya "TiN" Tsemenko, professional overclockers who work at EVGA's Taiwan office, decided that they were "sick of pouring" and embarked on a journey which would modernise the LN2 liquid cooling scene. Most PC builders have seen a closed loop/all-in-one liquid cooler, but what if that concept could be applied to LN2. 
 
This idea eventually lead EVGA's hardware teams alongside KINGPIN and TiN to create what is now known as the EVGA Roboclocker, an automated LN2 semi-closed loop liquid cooler which takes a lot of the pain out of extreme overclocking. 

The benefits of EVGA's Roboclocker are twofold. First, the system saves a lot of liquid nitrogen, with waste Nitrogen gas collecting in a secondary tank while the system itself minimises the LN2 requirements of extreme overclocking. This increase in LN2 efficiency allows large LN2 tanks to be used for longer without expensive refills while also allowing Nitrogen gas to be collected after use, rather than let it dissipate into the atmosphere. 

The second benefit is that the system can increase LN2 throughput based on temperature changes and current changes, allowing for more LN2 to be released into the system while benchmarks are running, allowing users to focus on system adjustments and benchmarking, rather than maintaining an ideal system temperature. 




EVGA's Roboclocker has been in use for the past few months, with the system having already achieved several world record overclocks. The system shown below could be used to control the temperatures of a single CPU and up to four GPUs simultaneously, with system parameters being adjustable using a laptop that is connected wirelessly to the control unit. 

While this isn't a consumer-grade product, it showcases EVGA's willingness to support the extreme overclocking crowd and that deep down the company is full of PC enthusiasts at heart. The Roboclocker isn't a product that will earn the company any money, though the world records that it will help achieve may help the company gain a higher standing amongst some overclockers.

The only question I have is: Will TTL towers get one of those to test and maybe review? Quote

The main difficulty would be getting the LN2 and storing it safely. It is a dangerous substance.

I don't think TTL has any experience with LN2, though he has used Dry Ice in the past.Quote

Any OC that can not be used for a 6 hour gaming session is not really interesting.


Reading about it is sort of like seeing/reading about drag-racing. The numbers are cool, its noisy and it looks super geeky, but it has no practical value what-so-ever outside of the racetracks :-)


I'm flabbergasted about how this continues to be a thing. But it is, so I'm the odd one out i guess.Quote

Well benchmarking is a genre of its own much like gaming. There is a massive overclocking community this can cater for.Quote

This is a very old story, Kingpin has had setups like this for a long time and I believe he said they were boring.Quote
