Asetek are the company responsible for the Corsair H50 liquid cooler which won a gold award when we reviewed it. They also provide the cooling solution for Dell/Alienwares high end desktop systems such as the Aurora ALX which we recently reviewed.
Having loved both products we are pleased to see that the positive reviews and no doubt sales off the back of this have allowed Asetek to raise $8m to further their business. We cant wait to see what they release next.
Speaking about the news, new Chairman of the Board Sam Szteinbaum said:
“The successes Asetek has achieved in 2009 show clearly that the benefits of enhanced performance and improved acoustics enabled by the company’s factory sealed liquid cooling systems are important differentiators for computer OEMs serious about addressing the performance segments of both the commercial and consumer PC markets,”
“We are also gratified by how rapidly the enthusiast market has embraced our liquid cooling technology following the launch of the Corsair H50 CPU cooler. Raising an additional $8 million in venture capital funding given the current difficult economic climate, demonstrates clearly the confidence our investors have in Asetek’s management team and technology to continue to expand its market share in the workstation, gaming and performance segments of the PC market. I am excited to work with the management team at Asetek to help the company realize the full potential of liquid cooling in the market. “
