Watercooled motherboard from Asus

I don’t believe that there is really any question – the next gen boards need better cooling. Well, leave it to ASUS to beat everyone to the scene with a great cooling solution.

Computex 2006 Asus has managed to find a cooling solution for its next generation high-end motherboards, using a very small integrated pump and water reservior.

The rather large radiator also works as a heatsink for the MOSFETs, which are part of the power regulation on the motherboard and generally get very hot.

The list of upcoming features doesn’t stop here though, as Asus is also working on a small single line LCD display that will be part of the I/O shield. This will show up any errors during boot, but it’s much more advanced than the two character displays used by many manufacturers…. Source: Reg Hardware
