Air-cooling specialist Thermalright is readying a VGA cooler that makes use of a 140 mm fan, and uses no less than eight 6 mm thick heat pipes to convey heat to a large aluminum fin array. The Shaman from Thermalright uses a large rectangular base from which eight heat pipes twist their way to the heatsink. Shaman supports nearly all high-end GPUs in the market, including GeForce GTX 480, GTX 470, GTX 465, GTX 460, Radeon HD 5800 series, Radeon HD 5700, and upcoming Radeon HD 6800 series as well as HD 6700 series. Bundled with this is a TY-140 fan, which spins between 900~1300 rpm, with a noise output of 21 dBA.
