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

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.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid cooling.

Pros: Don't let some reviews stop you from getting a solid cooler with very good performance. I have 4 of these on my gaming pc's and they do perform well with temps (27c to 31c at idle)(Intel and AMD cpu's) and at gaming loads (42c to 45c). My systems have not gone over 45c while running any of my games at all and flight sims like rise of flight and A10 warthog do push the cpu hard while running. For me this is solid performance from the cooler. With a slight overclock my temps go up by 2c to 3c depending on the system I am running at the time.
I do run 2 120mm fans (cooler master jet flows) on the coolers to get best performance.
As for the back plate I have not had one issue with any of my coolers at all. The back plates with this cooler have worked fine for me. You can get a kit on e bay made by the manufacture of this cooler to use it on AMD cpu's and I have 2 of them installed this way on AMD cpu's without one issue. You can even use the back plate that comes on the motherboard with these kits with AMD AM3+ cpu's.
Installation was easy and I had the cooler installed in around 30 min.
If you spend more you may find better performance but if your like me just gaming (world of tanks and rise of flight) and not trying to run super overclocked system this cooler will serve you well.

Cons: I have found no cons with this cooler at all. The only thing even close to con is it would be easier with 2 people to install. It's hard to hold everything and start the screws in the radiator using 2 120mm fans.

Other Thoughts: I have only found these kits for this cooler on e bay and they do work well for the cooler to use with AMD cpu's.
Also this cooler dose not need the extra usb plug in on your motherboard other coolers need. It dose not need extra software that can have issues like some other coolers have and I have had these issues in the past with other coolers. You just install it and it works so if you want to keep things simple that should be that way check this cooler out you will love it.

1 out of 5 eggsShort service life

Pros: Cooled the CPU adequately.

Cons: After 2 years service of daily use the pump effeiciency began to deteriorate to the point that the zero load temperature of the CPU was around 80 degrees Celsius. I would expect the service life of the pump to be significantly longer than two years. A good CPU core temperature monitor proved invaluable to me to track this deterioration. Also the system could not recover from heavy CPU use; once the CPU temperature got high it stayed high even when the CPU load dropped to zero.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat product until you get to the back plate

Pros: Blue led fan that is quiet. Nice flexible non leaking hoses. Ahh I'm really trying here.. Nope nothing else.

Cons: Where do I begin? The hoses seem a bit long for my large Mid tower case. A little more pump sound than I expected. There are 4 metal slightly oblong nuts in thin plastic back plate and you can only finger tighten them. or they will twist and strip. VERY EASY I might add.. You can actually strip them out by just twisting with your fingers. I had very high hopes for this watercooler but its turning out to be a real terd. LOL

Other Thoughts: Another thing I don't like is the Intel lighted logo is just an leg with a black sticker on it. With a clear Intel logo to let the blue shine through.. Cheap! For the highest priced single fan cooler on the market. I give it a 1 egg.. I about to return it and avoid this cooler.. Its not worth the time or trouble.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel liquid cooler

Pros: My processor is an Intel 4770k overclocked to 4.1ghz.. Primarily I play Battlfield 4 on maxed out settings including mxaa, and this cooler keeps the average tempetature around 46-50 C. At idle it averages about 25 C. The fan that comes with it is very quiet. I added a fan on the rear of it also to drop the temps 2-3 C. This Intel cooler replaced an Enermax ETS-T40 cooler and temps have dropped about 10 C under full load. t he case this is installed in is a Coolermaster Haf 932.

Cons: Every now and then I will hear the cooler pop, I think it is air inside cooling system but it seems to work ok.

Other Thoughts: When you mount the cpu bracket just snug the screws because they can easily strip out.

4 out of 5 eggsintel liquid cooler

Pros: good snug fit, blue LED, quiet, fan lights up as well.
never leaked, long tubes, compact size allow all dim slots to be used on my gigabyte Z68 board, 3 year warranty with Intell, runs my 3770K tweaked in BF4 on high at 38 C , web cruise at 30-33 C . thick radiator

Cons: died after a year. intell warranty a pain to get RMA. had to get Newegg to help me find correct address. they replaced within 2-3 weeks.

Other Thoughts: be careful of the board bracket in rear, it can strip stand off studs easily, so don't over tighten, came with thermal paste, but I RR'ed with arctic silver, could use rubber washers for radiator.

5 out of 5 eggsNice LEDs

Pros: Nice Intel logo LED on the pump, Fan LED can be turned off if you prefer. Relatively quiet, different length screws provided for installation options, nice flexible hoses, radiator designed to fit easier than some other brands. Thermal paste is not on the cooling block, but in little baggies, which is nice if you want to use your own anyway. The whole package seems to be well engineered and a lot of details are thought of. Keeps my 3930 cool with a modest overclock.

Cons: Installatuon instructions aren't that great. Does not allow for more extreme over clocking but that to be expected from a small all in one unit.

Other Thoughts: There may not be much of a difference between this and a good big air cooler, but you should already should know that. Every one seems to favor Corsair H** coolers those are fine but for a full price I'd take this any day for better engineering and attention to details, not to mention LEDs. Cooling capabilities pretty similar to H60-H80. I bought this locally because I needed something quick while Newegg/FedEx had delays on my H60 order. Love Intel cooler! Though it was more expensive I have no regrets; now the price seems about the same...

4 out of 5 eggs

Coming Soon!

Pros: Quiet, efficient, tough but flexible pipes, 4 pin PWM fan, long and short screws for attaching fans. CPU is remaining cool, under load, and there is little to no noise to be heard.

Cons: Included instructions lack detail. They are graphical only.

Included fan was wired to rotate backwards. This is the first fan I have ever encountered that did this. The fan literally rotated in the wrong direction (counter to the blade design). All wiring was confirmed and replacement fans all would rotate properly. Included fan was installed correctly, it was just internally wired wrong.

Other Thoughts: I spent several hours investigating the fan issue. I've never seen a fan (especially a PWM 4 pin fan) that rotated backwards like this. I didn't initially notice the problem till I noticed hours after installation that no heat was leaving the back of the case. That's when I opened up the case and noticed the fan was pulling air through the radiator into the case. I installed the typical installation with the radiator mounted at the back of the case with the fan oriented to blow air through the radiator. The fan was oriented correctly (no spacers required in this orientation). The pump was wired properly to the motherboard and the fan properly to the pump. When replacing the included fan with another one (a Vortex fan), the replacement fan rotates correctly. The included fan was just somehow internally wired to spin backwards. Maybe a fluke, maybe a whole range of these fans were mis-manufactured. Installers should double check proper fan rotation as this can cause excessive heat buildup in your case. Attached video shows backwards fan rotation which is clearly a manufacturing flaw.
