ASUS Launches Silent Thermal Solution for Latest Graphics Cards


ASUS introduced SilentCool Technology, a fan-less, noiseless cooling solution for high-performance graphics cards.

According to the company, the all-new thermal solution operates at 0db for silent operation and reduces GPU (graphics processing unit) by 40 ˚ C compared with competing cooling technologies.

?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.

To provide a fan-less, noiseless thermal solution that also enables high-performance graphics performance, ASUS incorporated a larger and efficient heat exchange area as well as new mechanical designs.

SilentCool included the large heatsink design, which 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. SilentCool is similar to technologies used in processor coolers, and reduces GPU temperature by 40 ˚ C compared with thermal solutions for competing graphics cards.

The stacked copper fins are positioned on a joint design, which enables the fins to rotate 90 ˚ . Depending on the locations of critical components such as the CPU, mosfets or capacitors etc., users can rotate the fins away from these areas for optimal heat dissipation. An additional cooling module attached to the heatsink and extends to the exterior of the PC further lowers GPU temperature by another 6 ˚ C.

Currently, SilentCool is available on ASUS Extreme N6600GT Silencer graphics card. More ASUS graphics solutions will implement this technology.
