Again, found at VR Zone, a very compact liquid cooling kit that should fit a miniPC nicely as well. Should be able to dissipate up to 150W of heat power.

They manage to fit it in a mini-PC by putting most of the stuff on the outside of the chassi. That is kind of cheating big time!

From the pictures you can see the fan in the back sucking air through the rad. It is a bit hard to tell, but I think it is an 80mm fan.
From the mounting they have done I think you need to modify just about any case to make it fit. It could still be an interesting device.
Most water cooling systems have some kind of expansion place (half-filled or so with water) to accomodate to temperature differences in the water. This system seems to lack such a place, and that should reduce efficiency a bit.

I am not really sure what the intended buyers for this system is. It does not seem like a good system for overclocker, and it does not look like it suits the needs for SPCR audience either. Perhaps it will get buyers if it is priced lower than other water cooling packages?

I think the audience is people A) running hot components inside a miniPC or B) people wanting probably the least noisy minipc cooling.

I think that system is contender for both, after all it can dissipate 150W and at lower fan speeds and with an external radiator, it can probably do 80W+ with a noise level that beats any pre-built minipc systems to date.

That's a guess of course. The proof is in the pudding.
