GIGABYTE has announced that its AORUS WATERFORCE series AIO coolers include brackets to support the Intel Alder Lake LGA 1700 socket. The AORUS WATERFORCE and WATERFORCE X series were designed with the Z690 platform in mind, so they are already optimized for the flagship Intel Core i9-12900K. They have passed tests of Prime 95 non-AVX at all cores, P-Core at 4.9 GHz, and E-Core at 3.7 GHz with Turbo Boost Technology.

Tube sizes have been increased from 5.1 mm to 7.8 mm, and along with a 3,200 RPM pump, they are engineered for extreme heat dissipation. Radiator sizes include 240 mm, 280 mm, and 360 mm. The coolers incorporate graphene Nano lubricant to reduce noise and wear on the bearing while prolonging its lifespan. A ceramic axis design aids in heat dissipation, and its anti-corrosive properties also increase the overall lifespan and performance.

Press Release

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards, and hardware solutions today announced all AIO liquid coolers lineup, including AORUS WATERFORCE series and AORUS WATERFORCE X series are attached with brackets for Socket LGA1700 to support the latest 12th gen Intel Core processors, which provides the optimal flexibility and compatibility in the market. Enhanced by the enlarged tube diameter and top-quality components, these two cooler series fully support the latest 12th gen. Intel Core processors to pass Prime 95 non-AVX stress test by Turbo Boost Technology. Users can enjoy gaming or working with stable performance without worries about throttling caused by the overheating on processors.

“With the launch of the latest Intel Z690 chipset and 12th generation Core processors, most of the existing liquid coolers in the market are unable to support it due to the socket change. GIGABYTE AORUS WATERFORCE and AORUS WATERFORCE X series took into account the structural changes of the coming platform at the initial stage of development, and designed the visionary accessories with brackets for LGA 1700 which let users embrace the new platform easily without updating water cooling devices,” said Jackson Hsu, Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division. “GIGABYTE AORUS WATERFORCE and AORUS WATERFORCE X series AIO liquid coolers follow the praise of the previous generation AIO cooling and keep the notable exclusive design with a bunch of enhancements in response to users’ feedback. In addition to the durability and high compatibility, they can pass the Prime 95 non-AVX stress test with the 12th gen. Intel Core processor by Turbo Boost Technology which ensures users a stable use without any concerns.”

Multicore CPUs have become the norm for high-end builds but faster clock speeds can generate excess heat which may drag down the system performance. Enhanced with enlarged tube flow, top-quality pump, durable fans, and the advanced design of maximum 3200 RPM pump speed, the AORUS WATERFORCE, and AORUS WATERFORCE X series AIO liquid coolers promise the optimal heat dissipation for processors to work smoothly under heavy loading without throttling. With Intel Core i9 12900K processor, these coolers demonstrate extreme heat dissipation efficiency and outstanding stability to pass the stress test of Prime 95 non-AVX at all cores P-Core 4.9 GHz and E-Core 3.7GHz by Turbo Boost Technology. Through such rigorous testing, it is ensured that users can have stable and efficient heat dissipation effects either in general use or gaming.

AORUS WATERFORCE and AORUS WATERFORCE X series AIO liquid coolers deliver 3 radiator sizes of 240/280/360mm which cater to various needs from users, and all of them support Intel LGA 1700 and existing sockets of high-end multicore processors with corresponding brackets included in the accessory packing to provide the best supportability and flexibility. AORUS WATERFORCE and AORUS WATERFORCE X series improve every aspect of functions and designs. The Tube Diameter has been enlarged from 5.1 mm to 7.8 mm which increase water flow by 37 % and made the heat dissipate quicker and more efficiently. The ceramic axis design provides better resistance to damage and anti-corrosion abilities than the metal axis, enabling a longer lifetime, improved durability, and heat dissipation performance. Meanwhile these liquid coolers phase in the leading graphene Nano lubricant bearing with low coefficient of friction and high lubrication to reduce the rate of wear on bearing and carbon deposit, which extends the life and avoids the noise from ball bearing on low fan speed to create quieter operation.

AORUS WATERFORCE and AORUS WATERFORCE X series AIO liquid coolers are already in the market and can support 3200RPM pump speed by updating the latest FW to upgrade the heat dissipation performance.

  1. I noticed this when I purchased my Aorus Waterforce X. Though I may not be upgrading to utilize it right away, but it’s nice that they included the additional hardware.

  2. Hmm, this caught my eye:

    They have passed tests of Prime 95 non-AVX at all cores, P-Core at 4.9 GHz, and E-Core at 3.7 GHz with Turbo Boost Technology.

    What’s that supposed to mean on cooler marketing?

    Perhaps that the all core boost was not limited by thermals?

    Maybe but they don’t say what the thermals were… I mean, that’s more like and advert for issue for CPU Lottery. For all we know at this point, maybe the 12900 can do that on a cheapy stock heat sink (for a lil while anyway).

  5. Well, in-house testing, we all know to take it with a grain of salt. Let’s hope [USER=1]@David_Schroth[/USER] can get his hands on both a 12900K and one of the 360s to see how far they really go.
