Everything indicates that in August we will see the premiere of Intel Skylake processors, which are coming with lots of new things – including LGA 1151 socket, memory support for DDR3-L and DDR4, the support of Intel 100 Series Chipsets and as well as the new reference coolers will also appear. Yes, there is now news floating that Intel’s upcoming Skylake-S “K-Series” processors will not ship with CPU coolers, but Intel will release two new coolers and one of them is a closed-loop liquid cooler from none other than Asetek.
Intel Skylake-S processors without Reference Coolers, but Intel will release two new Coolers
So far previously Intel was selling its processors with PCG 2013D or PCG 2014 CPU Coolers. This design uses an aluminum Heatsink with radially spaced fins and a fan with a diameter of 80 mm – it offers a pretty good work culture and cope with cooling systems coefficient of TDP to 95 W. An additional advantage of cooling is low profile design.
Although in the set with unlocked processors of Intel Skylake-S it will not be added (as in the case of the top models from the segment HeDT), but the manufacturer and so separately will give two reference models – 2015D PCG cooler and the compact liquid cooling system PCG 2015D (a similar solution is already available for sale). Both cooling systems can handle power up to 130 W, but both will probably not fit into smaller PC cabinets.
Therefore customers will have to buy their own cooling solutions – directly from Intel or from third parties.
