Cooler Master AQUAGATE Viva - Liquid cooling for your CPU and GPU


Cooler Master is no stranger to cases and cooling and we were quite pleased to see another innovative product land on our doorsteps. The current self contained systems either aren't up to par with my performance standards or they are a bit too expensive. I never understood why more manufacturer's haven't released more self contained liquid cooling systems. Let's face it, not everyone has the time, patience or technical know-how to purchase an all out water cooling kit with separate components. It can also get very expensive and messy if you don't know what you are doing.

The AQUAGATE Viva looks to solve those issues. When I first saw the product, I was taken back. Could this be the answer I've been wishing for? On paper, this would be the perfect solution. I needed a simple all in one liquid cooling solution that required little or no maintenance, was easy to install and performed well. Pricing is also an important factor. I was actually shocked to see the AQUAGATE Viva priced lower than its older sibling, the AQUAGATE mini. Is it too good to be true?
