DeepCool’s Liquid Cooled PSU – a silent 1200W

 

CES has shown us a lot of great and weird products this year, from 4K HDR displays all the way to Taxi Drones, but this I think may be one of the craziest and most overkill products of the show, a product which in the eyes of many people will simply be borderline insane. 

At the DeepCool both there are many interesting new products, from cases with an integrated 360mm Radiator and a vertical GPU mount all the way to this, a water cooled power supply which can diliver it’s full wattage in utter silence, with no fan to spin up or high running temperatures.

This unit is a prototype from DeepCool, but what it really shows here is a lot of potential to create some very unique looking systems in the future, systems which have no fans except for what is on the PCs radiators, which could result in an utterly silent PC with killer performance.

My only concern about this unit is the safety factor and the market desire for this product, yes I do see some people buying it just because you can water cool it, but at the same time there is not really any benefit that the water cooling adds, as today’s most efficient power supplies rarely need to have the fan running and the silent offered by water cooling will simply be moved to the radiator fans, rather than be removed completely.

While this product is a very interesting one, it is really hard to know if it will really have a future on the enthusiast PC market, given how quiet modern PSUs are and the fact that this power supply is effectively useless when it isn’t being water cooled, whereas other power supplies are pretty much plug and play.
