Asetek, one of the world’s largest suppliers of liquid-coolers, on Tuesday announced that in September it sold its second millionth liquid-cooling solution (LCS). It took the company more than ten years to sell two million LCS devices.
Asetek unveiled its first sealed-loop liquid cooling solution in 2003. Since then the company has been expanding its product lineup and today it ships liquid coolers for enthusiast and gaming PCs, enterprise workstations and servers. The company also supplies its coolers to various OEMs who resell them under their own brands.
“Crossing the two million units shipped milestone is an incredible achievement that speaks to the quality of our solution as well as the trust that we have built with our customers,” said André Sloth Eriksen, Founder and CEO of Asetek. “This success propels us into new areas such as GPU cooling and the data center market where our solutions solve problems that traditional cooling cannot.”
Closed-loop liquid cooling systems are much more reliable than custom-built liquid coolers, they rarely leak, they are smaller, they are more reliable and they are more affordable. As many PC components are very hot these days, sealed-loop LCS devices will continue to gain popularity going forward.
It is noteworthy that it took Asetek around nine years to ship one million of liquid cooling systems and only a little more than two years to ship another million of LCS devices.

KitGuru Says: While liquid cooling solutions gain market acceptance these days, it is necessary to say that many people continue to use large “mega-coolers” that provide similar levels of performance at lower cost. Which coolers do you prefer?
