Founded by André Eriksen in 1997, Asetek took the gaming and enthusiast market by storm. Asetek introduced a new cooling approach to overcome the performance limitations caused by processors running red hot. By freezing CPUs down to sub-zero temperatures, Asetek’s VapoChill enabled faster CPU speeds. Within five years of existence, Asetek had both pioneered and become the world leader for vapor phase CPU cooling technology.
Asetek invented the sealed-loop liquid cooler. Asetek’s all-in-one (AIO) liquid cooling innovations enabled high-performance PC and workstation OEM partners to provide the industry with better performing prebuilt PCs.
Early on, its VapoChill and WaterChill brands provided water cooling for CPUs, graphics cards, chipsets, hard drives and standalone tower servers. Innovations include many industry firsts, ranging from vapor chamber technology; unique pump systems; split flow coldplates; and software to enable the community to monitor and manipulate their cooling systems.
