Kingwin Gladiator Hybrid Liquid Cooler

Manufacturer: Kingwin
Supplied by: Kingwin
Street Price: $49 (USD)

By Dean Barker (7/29/2007)

Introduction

Putting new ideas into practice is what keeps the market fresh.  Kingwin has a long history of thinking outside the box and bringing us new technology allowing higher performance and happier end users.  Their newest CPU cooler the Kingwin Gladiator, brings air and water cooling together in a compact package.  Kingwin styles this blending their Hybrid Liquid Cooling Technology.  Sure, all water cooling systems are hybrid.  A water pump circulates fluid through the reservoir to the water block to the radiator where an attached fan cools it before it goes around again.  The difference between this standard system and Kingwin's Gladiator is that the Gladiator packs all of this into an all in one unit not much larger than a cup of noodles.  Aside from the size, noise level is low and so is the price.  Today, thanks to the good people at Kingwin Technology, we have one of their new Gladiator Coolers on deck.  So let's get right to it.
