For over a decade, the best way to cool your PC has been with a water cooling system. This year at CES 2014 a new product has emerged and introduced what could be the new standard for cooling your PC.
The MP1120 from Captherm may have a slightly boring name, but don’t let that fool you. This awesome new product that has PC enthusiasts excited is an extremely simple integrated phase change cooler, and it plugs directly into a processor socket adapter. The way that phase change cooling works is by heating up the liquid until it turns into a vapor. Then, the vapor moves to a condenser and is changed back into a liquid and finally returned to the processor.
This method cools your PC much more efficiently and does not require the use of a pump. Eliminating the pump also eliminates the risk of break or leaks and annoying noises that you may have to put up with.

The MP1120 is made of corrosion resistant metals, but these metals can’t be welded together in a normal way because they won’t accept a strong and long lasting bond. So, they have to use “explosion welding”, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Large chunks of the materials are put together in slabs, and then they are bonded together by the force of an explosion instead of welding. After that, they are cut to fit the pieces of the cooler. Using this method means that the bond will never leak or get weaker.
In case you were wondering, yes; There is a built in window so that you can watch the process of the phase change cooling. You can actually watch the water turn into vapor. You also have the choice of any color lights that you would like, as the system comes with fully customizable LED lighting.
According to Captherm, the MP1120 will sell for $249. This may seem a little bit pricey compared to other cooling systems, but it’s actually a pretty good price compared to other phase change cooling kits on the market. Some sell for over $1000.
