To provide users with a compact sized CPU cooling solution, ASUS has announced the Arctic Square CPU cooler.
This compact cooler has double side fins, dynamic fan speed control and four copper heat pipes in order to deliver efficient heat dissipation for the latest quad-core processors. With a small cooler size, the Arctic Square is widely compatible with many motherboards and chassis. The Arctic Square offers quiet performance and a unique design with a blue LED, providing a peaceful computing environment and a stylish system interior.
The Arctic Square supports Intel's Core 2 Extreme series, Pentium D Dual-Core CPU, and Pentium 4 LGA775 processors; as well as AMD's Socket AM2/940/939, Athlon 64-FX, Athlon and Sempron processors.
The voltage regulation shield inside the cooler directs airflow created by the 9cm LED fan to surrounding VRM (voltage regulation modules) ? critical to processor operation and overall system reliability. This unique design effectively reduces VRM temperature by 10-15˚C.
The patented retention module is designed specifically to enable easy cooler installation regardless of the processor platform in three simple steps.
