“Asetek’s robust liquid cooling can now easily be configured for any Intel desktop motherboard. A single mounting ring enables flexible manufacturing in both high and low volume PC manufacturing settings,” said Gary Baum, Asetek's SVP of Marketing. "The new retention ring helps our OEM customers reduce inventory costs by providing a single solution to support Intel's entire mix of socket types."
The solution consists of a single Intel mounting ring and back plate. The universal mounting ring supports variable position screw inserts to fit specific socket requirements. OEMs can easily reconfigure part of their inventory to support a new mix of Intel processor demand. OEM customers building systems with a high mix of processors may order ring kits and configure them on the fly for the type of system being built.
