Sparkle Computer announced its newest innovation in graphics card design: the Calibre IDF (Intelligent Dual Fly) cooler. Its design intends to put greater control over the card's temperatures, while taking the same away from driver-level fan speed presets. The concept involves a copper GPU block from which heatpipes arise, conveying heat to two circular aluminum fin arrays on either sides of the block. Each array holds its own fan that blows air onto it. The air from these also help passively cool other components on the graphics card, such as memory chips and the VRM area. Between these two also lies the so-called "GBOX control terminal". This component has its own temperature sensor, and depending on the temperature, adjusts fan speeds, and interestingly, has a mechanism that moves the two aluminum fin arrays parallel to the plane of the PCB or angled to it. When angled, the cooler's passive cooling (under its air-flow) is extended to far reaches of the card. Thresholds are set for under 50 °C temperatures to keep the two parallel to the card, and higher temperatures angled to it. With low power requirements of this mechanism, the entire cooler makes do with the 4-pin fan power connection to the card. Sparkle is also working on an accessory that lets the cooler's readings and perhaps some controls be provided on a fan-controller that fits into a 5.25" drive bay on the PC case. Although no new graphics cards from the company are said to feature this cooler, it will make it to newer models in the near future.
