Eh?

This seems like a strange partnership considering Corsairs (or was it Asetek) previous products beat CoolIts attempts. We shall have to wait and see the spawn of this unholy pairing!

I don't recall if asetek ever really beat Coolit, more or less they had the same performance for the most part in my experience.
That being said I do think this is a better partnership, with Coolit not only a canadian company but one whom can design a much better mounting system and overall sealed cooler.

Yes, that's all I can see of the city now.

A ton of red jersey's, and a bunch of people swinging the CoolIT cpu heatsinks around windmill style about to launch and take off. (in reference to CoolIT's unique way of testing coolers for leakage):haha:

Nonetheless great work!
I've used products from both companies.
Will be interesting to see what they come up with.

I can't say I'm happy to hear this other than potentially more jobs in Calgary, although I'm not convinced that will happen either. My experiences with Coolit's service and products have left a bad impression to the point where I will not deal with them again or recommend their products to my customers period. I can only hope that the infusion of cash from Corsair will improve every aspect of the company otherwise this move could very well be bad news for Corsair....but thats just me opinion.

Only in marketing, the rest goes Magicool in China.

Thats kind of what I was referring to when I said "...I'm not convinced that will happen either". I didn't think they actually manufactured their own units in Calgary.
