ASUS Unveils New Cooling System for Graphics Cards

@ 2005/07/25
ASUSTeK Computer Monday unveiled its new SilentCool passive cooling system for graphics cards, which is proclaimed to be significantly more efficient than similar products from other companies, yet, still noiseless, as it does not feature or require any fans.

“In the past, enhanced video capability also comes with louder noise. With ASUS SilentCool Technology, users can now enjoy high-performance graphics card applications without hearing the noisy cooling fan rotation,” said Kent Chien, Director of ASUS Graphics Business.

SilentCool cooling solution consists of a number of heatsinks: one main and two additional, connected to the main one using heat-pipes. The main cooling module is large aluminum radiator with copper base, two additional modules are made of copper and their exact placement may be adjusted in order to best fit into different computer cases. Supplementary cooling modules are needed to allow better heat absorption from higher-end graphics processing unit (GPU), which consume 80W or even more.

Will it go sub-zero if my current temp is 38°C

ASUS SilentCool Technology is a fanless, noiseless cooling solution for high-performance graphics cards. The all-new thermal innovation operates at 0db for silent operation and reduces GPU by 40°C compared with competing cooling technologies. SilentCool included the large heatsink design, which significantly increases heat exchange area for absorbing heat away from the GPU. The hidden heat pipe and stacked fins, both made of copper, then conduct heat away from the heatsink for fast heat dissipation.
