Aqua Computer has introduced an innovative system that aims to prevent leaks in water-cooled systems. The LEAKSHIELD, as it’s appropriately called, “generates an optimally calculated negative pressure in the cooling system” to prevent coolant escaping in the event of a leak and additionally features a protection system/sensor that detects “even the smallest leaks” to warn users of any impending trouble. Pressure and other data can be quickly reviewed via its OLED display. Aqua Computer’s standalone LEAKSHIELD protection system, LEAKSHIELD leak protection system for ULTITUBE, and related accessories are available immediately through its online web store.

LEAKSHIELD was developed by Aqua Computer for the ULTITUBE expansion tank, but can also be used with expansion tanks from other manufacturers via an adapter set. The minimal size of the complex device is impressive: All components have been integrated into the cover of the expansion tank. The power supply and control is via USB. The device has an OLED display and button operation. This means that the most important functions can be carried out directly on the device.

  1. That’s actually pretty **** smart but I wonder what power use looks like. And does it impact flow?
  2. Hmm. I can’t see how this would work in a vented system – you’d need a totally sealed system, like an AIO. I guess that’s what the "adapter set" is that is used with expansion tanks.

    Not sure that it would really prevent a leak for very long, but it could at least alert you to one before it straight up douches everything.

    Also, I have to admit, I was expecting something more like this. Totally disappointed.
