Asetek Intros First Liquid Cooling For ATI HD 4000 Series

Asetek’s industry-leading, LCLC liquid cooling solution is now available for AMD’s latest ATI Radeon HD 4870 family of graphics cards. The unique, single-slot liquid cooling approach provides OEMs with an extremely high overclocking capability enabling them to design and produce outstanding gaming and entertainment products with virtually no noise.

To meet the demands of advanced gaming or graphics-intensive applications, Asetek’s highly integrated solution lowers the GPU temperatures found on the 4870 by as much as 26 degrees, enabling it to run significantly cooler in extreme performance modes of operation. And, since the Asetek solution is totally liquid cooled, the graphics card can run completely silent, except for the system heat exchanger fan that typically runs at a quiet 30 dB(A).

HD4850 only? Hmm... I suppose the PCB of the 4870 looks entirely different...

Asetek: I alright intel igent, what are you doing later?....dinner?



They've come up with these parts before anyone could for obvious reasons, that since HD4800 is the hot new thing in town, naturally the likes of HP (Blackbird/Voodoo) and Alienware would jump into these, offer optional water-cooling at an insane price....means great business. HP buys WC parts from Asetek.

If it does a damn good job at cooling, who cares what it really looks like? I mean, its gonna be internal anyways. Unless you like frilly pink fluffy bunny slippers type looks :roll: j/k but seriously, I think its an awesome looking cooler. Id like to get a price on it though.
