Cooler Master Aquagate S1 Review

As water cooling is one of the most popular methods for cooling, some manufacturers like Cooler Master are introducing simpler and simpler systems to allow everyone, no matter the level of skill, to take advantage of the water cooling craze. One of the most recent additions to the Cooler Master water cooling line up is the Aquagate S1. The Aquagate S1 is a preconfigured, turn-key water cooling solution that doesn’t require any real formal knowledge of water cooling and associated components. Simple installation is one thing, but the measuring stick for cooling has always been temperature. In this review, we’ll see how the Aquagate S1 stacks up against some higher end air cooling.

I would have like to see a comparison against a custom WC system and maybe some more popular heatsinks.

Decent review nevertheless.
