Intel® Active Thermal Solution TS13X

For Intel Core processor families with LGA2011 / 1366 / 1155 / 1156 / 1150 Socket

Intel’s TS13X sealed liquid cooling thermal solution gives the utmost in system cooling. This extreme performance liquid cooling solution is geared for enthusiast usage models, enabling the user to unleash the power of Intel’s most flexible overclocking1 platforms.

  • newegg Designed for Optimized Performance Intel collaborated closely with Asetek*, a leader in liquid cooling solutions, to design an optimized liquid thermal solution. Based on Asetek*’s industry proven design, the TS13X has been further enhanced with a custom designed 120mmx25mm fan, a new higher efficiency cooler block, and a new heat exchanger, all to achieve a high level of thermal performance.
  • newegg Maximum Heat Dissipation The Intel TS13X features a 150mm x 118mm x 37mm radiator, which provides greater cooling performance compared to standard 1” thick radiators due to its larger surface area. The Intel TS13X also features the latest in copper cold plate design using state-of-the-art ultra-efficient heat transferring microchannels. These new and improved microchannels are able to transfer heat from the CPU to the liquid more efficiently than previous generations of microchannel and pin fin cold plates. This improvement in cold plate design allows for superior heat transfer without increased pump noise or compromised reliability
  • newegg Substantial Flow The Intel TS13X features a low profile pump that delivers higher liquid flow compared to traditional liquid cooling pump solutions. The pump, cold plate, and water block are integrated which reduces the number of connections and further improves reliability. Close coupling of the pump and cold plate enables simultaneous optimization of these two critical components to provide a truly great performance. Furthermore, this low profile pump minimizes the height and weight burden that the cooling solution exerts on CPU sockets and motherboards. The pump’s low height improves access and airflow through the chassis, while the pumps low weight reduces the risk of shock damage to motherboards. In addition, the rubber tubes carry a 50,000-hour lifecycle and are easy to bend, allowing for easier tube routing and installation.
  • newegg Multi-Socket Support The TS13X sealed liquid cooling system is compatible with LGA2011, LGA 1366, LGA1155, LGA1156, and LGA 1150 which provides increased flexibility for the system builder.
  • newegg Cool, Quiet, and Striking At equivalent acoustic levels and at full processor power (130W) the TS13X can achieve a 7°C cooler CPU core temperature compared to Intel’s highest performance air cooling thermal solution2. In addition, the TS13X runs 10dBA quieter than the high performance air cooling solution in performance mode. Finally yet importantly, blue LED lighting effects provides striking visual effects and highlight the presence of liquid cooling through chassis windows

5 out of 5 eggsReally didn't think much of it... till I used it.

Pros: Easy, and I mean EASY to install and configure. Remove one of your existing ATX box fans, install the radiator/fan unit, swap out your CPU heatsink/fan, and install this one. Done. Seriously, that's it. Took MAYBE 10 minutes total.

Cons: About the only real complaint I have is that the hoses for circulation of water/coolant are a bit thick and hard to adjust. Does not easily make for a neat case.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a rather inexpensive liquid cooling system that works well, is easy to install and is rock solid. This is it.

4 out of 5 eggsMore than I Though

Pros: Built for push-pull.

Made tough, very durable.

Will keep up with any fan(s) you pair it.

There's a "trick," to installation, but overall pretty easy.

Overall just a plain, serviceable, work-horse of a cooling system at a low cost.

Cons: The fan that comes with the system isn't of very high quality or performance. It's durable, but it's switch circuit is exposed (I actually looked it up to make certain that I hadn't received a defective fan -it's just made that way), and it doesn't move much air, even if overclocked. Also, it can only be installed in a single orientation because of the way the mounting holes are made.

The LED is nice, but overall it's better just to invest in a different fan(s).

Other Thoughts: I bought this liquid cooling system on a very tight budget and I didn't expect a lot of performance from one at the price range I had to work with.

With the paired fan, it was maybe a bit above average for the price tag, though nothing special. However, I uninstalled it and paired it up with high performance Enermax fan, and my ambient temperatures dropped a good 3 degrees. I add another Enermax fan and I haven consistent idle temperatures in the low 30s. Even gaming I've rarely seen it go much above 40.

What I take away is that this little device will keep up with a LCS with a greater specc'ed performance when paired up with the right fans. All in all, for me this has been a happy accident of finding it cheaper to use the BTS13X and a pair of good fans than it is to spend money on a much more expensive LCS that will offer comparable performance at a higher cost.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Very easy to install, self-contained water-cooling solution for people who don't want the hassle of large water-cooling installations with leak-prone reservoirs. I only wanted to water cool the processor, and this setup delivered. I have had no overheating issues. And by hooking the fan up to one of the fan headers on my motherboard to let the board handle the fan speed, it is super quiet.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsIntel CPU water cooler

Pros: Installed on an i5 running at 3.4 ghz. With stock cooler, temp was 60 deg C. With water cooler, temp was 36 deg C. Does the job and is quality product. Installed inside Lian Li ATX mid tower. Is tight fit, but looks good.

Cons: Difficult to install the CPU mounting bracket and then the CPU. Access to the rear of the board is necessary. Watch Intel installation video and read manual carefully as there are some subtle gotchas. Radiator and fan were no particular problem except furnished screws were maybe 1/16 inch shorter than I would like, but seems to be OK. Just don't get in a hurry, but proceed slowly and carefully. Frankly, had I known how difficult the installation was, I probably would have considered other options, but very satisfied now it is installed.
Small matter. Heat sink grease was one year out of date, so I used some that I had on hand.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Cooler

Pros: My new build has I7-4790K, carefully prepped both surfaces per Arctic Silver 5 directions, the Intel stock air cooler achieved cpu temp idling of 60 deg C,--adjusted the cooler, redid surfaces, 60 was best I could achieve, others said the stock cooler was just not enough for the 4790K, for this cooler I did same thing, carefully prepped surfaces, used Arctic Silver 5, compared quantity to the little tube of paste supplied by Intel so I would not use too much, CPU temp running 32 deg C after several hours at idle, assembly of the radiator and fan is easy (using Cooler Master HAF EVO case, love it), had to remove MOBO but that is easy with CM EVO case and install bracket on back of MOBO, installation of cooler/pump assembly is tricky but go slow and no problem, it did clear the capacitors on my ASUS Z97 Sabertooth but not by much

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I get a lot out of reading the reviews on Newegg so here is my chance to give feedback, good luck

5 out of 5 eggsI agree it works too.

Pros: I agree it works. I actually ran my PC with three Virus Scans up to 30% CPU usage [ a rarity with a i7- 3930K ] with turbo taking it to 3.6Ghz to 3.74Ghz in PerfMon. A mere ten minute ordeal but I do not have any program to run it up harder and higher.

Idle cores from 29C to 32C in PerfMon.

I did not go over 50C. { As a guy who once wanted to see if his built in thermal protectionworks I encounter well over 60C up to a thrilling 70C and never popped the thermal safeties.}

Cons: I hacked my Rosewill DESTROYER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case so the two 120mm fans and cover disappeared for the radiator for the unit.

Does this really fit in some special case? Mine is a large midtower and there is not enough room to mount as suggested.

Other Thoughts: I am glad I did it now. I used a cheaper Dynatron [ light one-no mounting plate behind MB] I sort of never liked the temps playing some games for a longer time in the summer with the HD 7970 putting out some BTU too.

I thought these were to high priced as an early adopter but $80 is real competitive.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I wanted

Pros: Cost
Works great out of the box. CPU idles in the low 20's, 52 degrees while gaming.
Efficient, only requires 1 CPU fan socket.
Compact. Radiator has a 120mm footprint which gives you options on where to mount.
Versatile. You can reconfigure the fan and radiator to fit your needs with included mounting adaptors.
Appearance. The CPU sink lights up a nice blue intel logo. The fan also has blue LEDs

Cons: The heat sink compound included in mine was about 6 months expired according to it's tube.
The instructions look like they were written by a certain furniture retailer. But I found videos online.

Other Thoughts: Spacing, I use this in an ATX Mid tower, and had spacing issues with my MB's many heat sinks, so I ended up mounting to the rear 140mm fan slot, and changed the fan around with the included adaptors.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel Liquid Cooling Thermal Solution Socket LGA1150

Pros: Does what is says it will. Max temp 49C at 100% CPU load on my i7-4790 4.0 GHZ overclocked to 4.6 GHZ. Stock cooling fan would not allow CPU to be 100% loaded due to high temps, (over 70C). No trouble installing without help.

Cons: Radiator is rather large, and takes up a lot of space in my mid tower. Stiff tubing limits installation.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend this product highly for value and effectiveness.

3 out of 5 eggsIs it Broke? Maybe not.

Pros: Looks great.

Cons: Scares the (beep) out of you. Can be loud at times. At first. Backing did not hold the lock screws.

Other Thoughts: I got this and it was not as great to install in the Sabertooth Mark S. First issue was that the backing attached to the back side of the motherboard had issues, the metal screw holders did not hold and while tightening (not too tight) started to spin which made installation a pain. The other issue that they do not mention is that the fan on first run is so loud that you think its broke. After a a few hours it finally gets quite but will get loud every so many hours for a minute then gets quite again.
