Bitspower has released it's latest mini-ITX full cover waterblock, the MIZ77ITXA, which is compatible with the MSI Z77IA-E53 motherboard.
The MIZ77ITXA's large cooling plate cools the CPU, VRMs and chipset with a single inlet and outlet port.
The waterblock features a single G1/4in thread inlet and outlet and a large contact plate that appears to cool not just the CPU but the VRMs and chipset too.
of the company's first such waterblock, for Asus' P8Z77-I Deluxe mini-ITX motherboard, showed that it was fairly easy to install but doesn't quite cool as well as a dedicated CPU waterblock.
However, given the tight confines of many mini-ITX cases, the extra cooling for the chipset and VRMs could be very beneficial.
The release of the MIZ77ITXA is the first non-Asus mini-ITX motherboard waterblock the company has released, so there are now hopes that the latest Z87 motherboards from MSI, Gigabyte and ASRock might get the water-cooling treatment too.
