    Default Asetek Granted Patents On Liquid Cooling Systems For GPUs In The USA

    Today appears to be a very sad day for graphics card enthusiasts as Asetek have patented a liquid cooling system for graphics cards. The patent, which will apply in the USA, has the potential to force custom GPU water-block vendors out of the GPU market from what I can see. The likes of EKWB, Koolance and Aquacool may be forced to move production outside the USA and stop selling to the American market in a similar way Swiftech had to when Asetek raised litigation claims against them for patent violations of the AIO CPU cooler design

    Now, this is a very sad news. With this decision, the US market will ran out of the production and sale of AIO CPU water systems (the first Asetak patent claim), and now with the GPU water blocks.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    This is the best endorsement for air cooling I have ever seen. No high end WaCo products allowed in the US.....

    The problem is that Asetek never wants a piece of the cake. They want the whole cake. Any pieces that have already been sliced and handed out they want to take back and immediately dispose of in a way that allows no one to see the original cake clearly. They then want to age the cake to the point of being barely edible and sell it at a premium, claiming that the quality of the cake is now better than the fresh, moist pieces that were originally out there. Strangely, there will be a group of cake eaters who will say this moldy, dried out cake is the best cake ever made.

    They will also somehow find a way to make the cake become irritatingly loud......

    Well if you look at it that way!

    I was merely pointing out the fact that those who want to use this patents will now have to pay some kind of royalty to Asetek, but from other news articles I have seen today, looks like this may be related to the GPU AIO market "like the new R9 295" and even on of the older GTX580 back in the day with a Asetek AIO attached.

    I do hope that the custom water loops blocks don't get shafted by this.

    I cant shake it but I swear that some of this has already happened. That a product like this has already been released. Damn only if I could think of who makes something that fits perfectly into this statement.

    No, that was different. In that case, the baker of the cake was enjoying his first bites and sharing with friends. Asetek came in, wrestled the baker to the ground, literally forced the bite of cake from his mouth and stole the rest. The friends of the baker said "well, at least we got some of the good cake" and continued to enjoy. Asetek then dosed the remaining molded, stale cake, making the eaters highly susceptible to suggestion. A few well placed subliminal ads later, the stale cake eaters were seen to be mindlessly chanting "our cake moar betterer" over and over. Attempting to tell them that the cake was moldy only illicited the response of "What? Speak up! I can't hear you over this nearly silent cake!".

    Upon the baker's recovery, he gave his cakes to his much larger gym rat bully friend to distribute. However, much of the public was far too seasick from a sailboat ride to eat much cake.

    And, Sandy, I have applied for a patent on using the phrase "shake it". Please send the $500 royalty fee to me by PayPal or I will be forced to take legal action.

    Default Re: Asetek Granted Patents On Liquid Cooling Systems For GPUs In The USA



    Now settle down mate. You are missing the most obvious here.
    Asetek is a Cult. Instead of blood sacrifices, cool-aid and restraining it's members and potential members, they use something they call CLC (I think touching them may be hazardous to our health) and make them chant CLC is the best , CLC is the best , CLC is the best, until they believe it. If they resist the uses they excessive noise from CLCs to torture them into submission. ... Someone told me their electrical powered bits emit signals that causes their users to loose all common sense and rationality. I cannot confirm or deny this, but it does appear to be true. I was trying to talk to a CLC'er just this week with all these symptoms. He cannot understand normal thinking.
