Any reviews about this new?
Just went up tonight so I'm gonna guess that no one has a review on them yet. . .and they weren't there when I looked about 9:30ish PM EST.
Judging by some basic design features, it looks like these may be Fester's cast off x-changer series with some tweaks to avoid "legal problems".
7 FPI looks promising.
Looks like a cross between Phobya G-Changer with the 4 in/outlets and a swiftech mcr with the chambers

I have one in my bag for testing, but I am still at CES. I have two radiators in front of the Cool gate for testing though, but we'll see how quickly I can turn tests around once I get back home and in my normal work schedule again.
They look pretty good though, matte black, 6-32 tapped mounts, 4 barb ports on the tank with a fill/drain port on the bottom. 90% copper tubes with copper fins. Very interested in seeing how the Coolgate perfoms!
I almost wanted to write that they seemingly do not have 4x120 model in that line though, but then i saw that listed aswell on their site, no 140mm models though. Overall, nothing innovative, probably yet another good rad. Weren't Feser admirals to be available ages ago? I don't expect much from them, but well, they Are different
They will perform exactly the same as every other radiator with a similar amount of cooling surface area (XSPC RX, XSPC RS, MCRs, SR1s, PA/TA... you get the idea).
These have a 3 year warranty too.
So, with 4-ports one can have two loops sharing on RAD maybe? Or have one loop with 2 Y-splitters with GPU route and CPU route going back the RAD in the loop.
This has me thinking a whole bunch now. The two loops with one RAD would need a pump for each route. The Y-splitter would be one pump enrouted for the loop.
Thanks for the posting. It will be nice to see a review and how loops are routed in various configurations.

Got three Coolgate 360 up and running on my SR-2 rig since last weekend
Temps and flow seems good
Getting som test equipment next week and will do some testing then.

I will wait for test result from skinnee first and then deside to buy, but they seem to be good due to 90% copper tubes
Every time I see this I think of toothpaste.
Check out Coolgate web-site.
It looks like there will be 140-series rad produced too. Moreover, there are sections for, waterblocks, pumps, reservoirs, etc.
It is good to see another manufacturer ro produce all WC components.
And i don't think it is somewhat connected with FesTer.
Besides, i think it is USA company not Europe.
Skinnee, any chance of pics of these rads?

My Water Cooling Case Build (closed)
@Sputnick - I started snapping shots of the three radiators I have last night, but ran out of steam. I'll finish them up tonight when I get home and post them up.
Speaking of 140mm radiators... how many of you are buying the 140mm vs. 120mm? Are you having trouble finding a case that actually fits a 140mm radiator? I'm just trying to gauge whether we need to add 140mm triples into our testing plans for 2011 or not.
I'm using 140mm when possible now. Might get a MM monster case so i can fit several king-sized 140mm rads (there are options for all 140mm radiator holes). For now i'm good with Lian Li (stock front and top positions for such radiators are good). Anyway the noise characteristic of the Thermalright 140mm fans is pleasing enough, with a good performance, so i made the jump.
(edit) and these coolgates look decent, good options, little hardware pieces given too which is a nice touch.
As for the 140's, any chance of doing thermal testing with AP-15's as well as some very select 140's to see how well Martin's testing bears out?
skinnee: i'm guesstimating that 140mm rads to 120mm ones are used like 1:10. Hmm, or maybe less (imho best way to privately ask for statistics from some big LC shop). If 140mm rad testing addition will take humanhours from other tests, then maybe no need to hurry. Or you could test just one or two alongside 120mm analogues from same vendor/same rad line (almost all HWLabs rads comes to mind as they come in both flavors) - to get generic trends, as in how much their cooling capacity scales up/down - if it's some fixed ratio for both radlines tested (eg. SR1/GTX or GTS), one should be able to apply that ratio to almost all 120mm rad lines results for rough estimate of expected results. I expect scale up ratio being a little bit less then with rad area to area comparison, because of worse fan selection.
The LC shops are the ones telling me that 140's aren't selling anywhere near 120's, but I wanted to see what you all had to say on the matter. Me personally, I don't like the 140mm fan selection yet and do not see case manufacturers adopting the 140mm size in mass.
@WL - Not sure I am getting exactly what you mean... Test the 140's using 120mm fans with a 120 to 140 adapter? On a related topic, I am changing the new radiator procedure already, removing the San Aces and replacing with GT-4250's. Minimal retesting, and adding a few additional fan speeds. My goal is to get better scaling with the increase in fan rpm.
