    I hope for some cheaper coolers, now that there can be some price-competition on two "alomost the same" coolers

    are u sure this is not a joke? blatant rip off otherwise... those asetek guys are sure getting desperate...

    having said that, there's probably no point upgrading to it anyway...

    Nice they've taken the step to 115/230v .

    This may be the datasheet to the compressor: http://www.danfoss.com/compressors/p...2_Cf53b202.pdf

    Wonder if they charged it with R404a or with R134a. Probably R404a.

    I want to see how it performs, and how much its gonna cost.
    To be honest im not surprised that it looks like that, cos everyone has said that the only way forward for Asetek is to use a larger compressor, and the only possible place to feasible place to put it is under the computer itself.
    To my mind Asetek is just doing what everyone said they would be doing what everyone said they would have to do, they still have a different chillcontrol, a different evaporator.
    The lian-li case is just cos they can then steal the exclusivity that the prommy has with lian-li cases.
    Considering the ruckus Asetek has made over temps recently, they had better stick to the "best temps on the market claim" IMO.
    Interesting product, even if the casing does look very similar, I want to see how it actually performs (and the cost)

    Both Asetek and Nventiv are monitoring these forums and most likely using Xtreme as a source of R&D. When you see the rounded evap head, the 360 degree mounting system, etc, you can see ideas that were first formulated here by our members.

    Other changes by both manufacturer's will be coming down the pike for certain.

    the casing+concept is identicall.

    What makes me sick is all that noise they started about taking nventiv to the court about copyrighting and stuff like that.


    THAT IS WHAT MAKES ME SICK COS THEY ARE DOING IT THEMSELVES

    hahah to Asetek employees reading XS

    you are a bunch of :banana::banana::banana::banana::banana::banana:s, get some creativity and stop copying others..

    taking Nventiv to court over their own design? good luck... I suggest a mass boycott..

    LOL....looks exactly like a MachII. I see they have Bowman and Bakers swivel block. It even says MachII compatible!
    Where did he get this? Is it a joke? I mean would even asetek do something this blatant? It sure looks real enough. There's nothing on their site about it. I would think they should be able to sell it dirt cheap as they don't seem to have invested much in R&D! Do they really think they can build a better MachII than nVENTIV?
    Well.....if you can't beat them.....copy them I guess.

    Sounds to me that you don't want any competition between the companies.. That would hopefully make the units a bit cheaper.

    Dale, pretty much exactly copied as I mentioned earlier.
    I'll still take bowman's & baker's work over a competitor's any day.

    Nice system, hope it's real... and I think Asetek know what they are doing.

    yeah it will be r404 why not they know the compressors that they use now 12v can hold up why not just go directly thur danfoss and use the same condensing units and take the lead as ebst stock cooling. I wonder if they finally went wiht a better evap also?? Humm

    looks nice and I agree who cares who they copied from yes its a bit unmoral, but we as consumers at the end of the day buy whats bets plain and simple so if they used all that we have talked about or have done to redesign there units into a mach II killer well then I guess Im all for it..

    we all know however that anytime that chip-con wants to gas r404 and tweak there current mach II who will be on top again.

    i don't care if it looks like Prommie as long as it's as good or even better. I played with my friend's Vapo XE two days ago and must admit it was a pleasure to install it. The hose can be bent in every direction unlike Prommie, no need for crappy seal string that you can take a few caps/resistors out with it and no condensation issues like water leaking from evaps housing and such.
    I hope this Vapo uses some bigger compressor charged with r404a though. If it is then it might be better than nVidia err, i mean nVentiv

    anyone notice how all of a sudden the poll went from 8-2 to 10-8? LOL....a little bit fishy?
    BTW QuadDamage.....the MachII has a new more flexible hose than the MachI did.

    the compressor is an r404/r507 unit

    looks to be able to hold a -30c load at 200w+
