Thermaltake Introduces The Xpressar RCS100

Thermaltake is ready to formally introduce its Xpressar RCS100 Micro Refrigeration Cooling System, which was first shown off at Computex in June. If you haven't yet seen the Xpressar RCS100, it is somewhat similar to the famed VapoChill Vapor Phase-Change Cooling systems we have shown you a few occasions in the past, but Thermaltake's offering differs in that it utilizes a DC Inverter type micro compressor to cool the PC. In fact, Thermaltake is claiming to be the first to use such a design.

To quote Thermaltake, the company summarized the Xpressar as "... a micro vapor-compression refrigeration system. The vapor-compression refrigeration system has been the most widely used method for air-conditioning of large public buildings, private residences, hotels, hospitals, theaters, restaurants and automobiles. It uses a circulating liquid refrigerant as the medium which absorbs and removes heat from the space to be cooled and subsequently rejects that heat elsewhere."


   


According to the company, the Xpressar RCS100 can cool a CPU 20'C lower than liquid cooling, so unlike the more powerful VapoChill sub-zero temperatures are out of the equation. Thermaltake also says the Xpressar RCS100 is equipped with a custom controller to prevent condensation, and that the unit has been tested and is compatible with a limited range of Gigabyte, MSI, and Asus motherboards. Although, we suspect the Xpressar RCS100 will be compatible with many other motherboards as well, but they have not been tested just yet.

I have always been a fan of thermatake especially the Full towers great function Great looks!

I'd love to see a full article with testing of this thing, hint hint. :)

If it's less hassle than liquid cooling, I'd be interested.

Not much hassle to watercooling after the inital setup.

I love how they list the places where air-conditioning systems are used, like its new or something. Also, I'm pretty sure I've seen refrigeration systems built into cases for sale before, so I'm not sure what they're trying to make seem special. Regardless, the execution here is very nice, and certainly drool-worthy.

Now what we need is a mod for this that will allow refrigeration of the GPU and/or RAM.

I really wish my DFI board is supported :(

Very sweet. I wondered how long it would take to bring phase to the mainstream. The answer 10 years.

Looks very nice. The vapoChill costs quite a bit, so considering that this is not as powerful of a system, it should be more affordable. Any idea how much it costs?

invert the motherboard tray = most efficient design


( cheaper / less materials)

How much do you think it'll cost to run?  Also is there a drink cooling facility?

 This is a breakthrough . . . unfortunately it has a lot of limitations at this point  . . . check this

Hey good find Paul. Thats quite a small list. Still a very cool product if you build the system around it.

 I mean . . . what's the use of having a TRI or QUAD SLI board if you will be restricted in video card config. Big Smile

- P7N Diamond (Only for one VGA card plug in 4th slot)
- P7N2 Diamond (Only for one VGA card plug in 4th slot)
- X48C Platinum (Only for one VGA card plug in 4th slot)

True there are a few boards that have better support though.
