It's summer, everyone wants beer
In the summer heat, everyone wants something cool and liquid, but AMD appears to be thinking about cooling its boxed versions of its FX-series central processing units (CPUs) with a liquid-cooling solution (LCS).

According to X-Bit Labs the big idea is to enhance overclockability as well as to improve their image in the eyes of high-performance computer enthusiasts. AMD intends to bundle a liquid cooling solution with the chips, according to a source with knowledge of the company's plans. It will bundle the advanced cooler with its top-of-the-range eight-core chips.

The chip maker is mulling over whether it should include a completely sealed liquid system that consists of a CPU water block with copper base, large heat-exchanger as well as cooling fan. Apparently it has in mind ideas like the  Antec Kühler H2O 620 self-contained liquid cooling system. This is a CPU water block with copper base, large 151x120mm heat-exchanger as well as 120mm cooling fan with 1450 - 2000rpm speed.
