All-in-One Liquid Cooler

AMD’s 1GHz Athlon processor in 2000, followed by 64-bit based consumer microprocessors in 2003, justified that leap. The benefits of the expanded architecture were felt widely as a generation of high-end creative software applications for everything from 3D design to film began to spread (and still exists). Liquid, however, was still a DIY kit, a couple of soda bottles and a pair of snorkels away from really being accessible.
The simple idea came along of putting everything together, all-in-one. With a few screws, you’ve just reduced your assembly time from hours to minutes. The Aquagate Mini came out as the first of its kind in the world, and the liquid cooling craze was born.
