Product information - ProSiphon Elite CPU Cooler - 240mm, blackThe IceGiant ProSiphon Elite is an innovative CPU cooler. What sets the Elite apart from typical CPU coolers with traditional heat pipes is that its cooling capabilities won't stagnate under high thermal loads. Quite the reverse: the more heat the CPU produces, the better the cooling performance. Similar to a water-cooled solution, the coolant moves in a loop, but without relying on a pump.
As the thermal load of the CPU increases, more boiling occurs, thus transferring more heat away from the chip. This makes it the ideal match for continuous operation of power-hungry, high-end desktop CPUs such as AMD's Ryzen Threadripper with a TDP of 250 W and beyond. IceGiant includes four 120 mm PWM fans to be mounted on the ProSiphon Elite in a push-pull configuration and grants a remarkable 10-year warranty.

IceGiant ProSiphon Elite: A CPU cooler for HEDT processorsThe IceGiant ProSiphon Elite is an innovative CPU cooler, with thermosiphon principles. The ProSiphon Elite excels at cooling extraordinarily demanding CPUs, such as AMD's Threadripper platform and Intel's HEDTs. Traditional heat pipes of air-cooled solutions may suffer from dry-out at high TDPs beyond 250 W and water-cooled solutions rely on a pump to drive the loop. While offering great cooling performance, custom water-cooling loops require high maintenance and a sophisticated setup.
Advantages of ProSiphon Technology: Comparison between traditional Heat Pipes and Water Cooling
Subsequently, this vapour rises inside the chamber. Multiple fins are attached to the outside of each heat pipe, which help to cool the vapour. Cool air is blown through these fins, which causes the gas to condense back to liquid. The liquid is then absorbed by the wick inside the chamber and transferred back to the contact plate.
Thus, liquid is blocked from returning and completing the cooling loop. Without circulation, there is no cool liquid to absorb the heat from the CPU, resulting in thermal throttling.
This so-called dry-out is typically observed with power-hungry high-end desktop CPUs such as AMD's Ryzen Threadripper with a TDP of 250 W and higher.
In the ProSiphon Elite, the evaporator contacts the CPU and transfers the heat to the coolant, which then boils. Due to the lower density of vapour, the vapour rises inside the loop, again passing fins attached to the outside of the Elite. Fans push cool air through the fins, causing the gas to condense into liquid again. Due to the gravity potential between the condenser and evaporator, the liquid naturally falls back down to the evaporator.
Second, since there is no pump involved, the reliability is vastly improved over a water-cooled solution. With no moving parts, except for the fans, possible points of failure are eliminated. Thus, IceGiant confidently grants a 10-year warranty for the ProSiphon Elite.
Efficient Cooling Power and extensive Equipment
This results in a maximum noise of 32.2 dB(A), which can be toned down by reducing the fan speed via PWM-control. Two of the fans are already pre-installed, and the other two are detached to allow for easier installation onto the CPU bracket.
A handy screwdriver and splitter cable complete the package. The high-quality Kryonaut thermal paste from Thermal Grizzly with an excellent heat conductivity of 12.5 W/mK unlocks the full potential of this innovative cooling system.
Note: The IceGiant ProSiphon Elite allows for a maximum of 48 mm RAM height and needs a minimum of 164 mm clearance towards the side panel.

ProSiphon Elite is the first cooling in the Ice Giant portfolio that offers good performance on mainstream and high-end platforms.read more...
Next in the hierarchy is our first air cooler – the IceGiant ProSiphon Elite – which ties with the 240mm Cougar AIO. That’s a pretty good result for IceGiant given the inherent benefits of air cooling versus liquid (depending on your preference, of course). Though realistically, this low a thermal load is not really doing the IceGiant thermosiphon technology justice versus heatpipe air coolersread more...
