Asetek R700 thumb Asetek Offers Liquid Cooling For HD 4870 X2

Asetek’s LCLC liquid cooling solution is now available for
AMD’s much anticipated multi-GPU cards, the ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 family of
graphics cards (codenamed R700).
Tests indicate that Asetek’s highly integrated, liquid cooling solution lowers
the GPU temperatures found on the 4870 X2 by as much as 28 degrees.

Asetek’s industry-leading, LCLC liquid cooling solution is now available for
AMD’s much anticipated multi-GPU cards, the ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 family of
graphics cards (codenamed R700). The unique, liquid cooling approach is exactly
what OEMs need to extract the highest performance from the graphics card and
produce top-of-the-line gaming and entertainment products.

"Heat is an `age-old’ problem for computers. However, what once used to be a
concern primarily for cutting-edge systems has now become an issue for
everyone," says Gary Baum, Asetek’s Senior VP of Marketing. "OEMs developing
high-performance, low-noise systems require a safe thermal management solution
that not only keeps their systems cool, but is easy to install, maintenance
free, and most important, is virtually noise free,"

Baum continues: "The days of computers that sound like jet aircraft taking off
are over. Our award-winning, LCLC provides worry-free, aggressive thermal
management for advanced gaming and graphics-intensive applications—especially
those using multiple GPUs like AMD’s latest R700-based graphics cards."

When used as part of a Radeon HD 4870 X2 Crossfire configuration, the LCLC
product consumes only two of the four PCI slots normally used, freeing up two
slots for other configuration upgrades. End users now have additional
configuration flexibility.

Tests indicate that Asetek’s highly integrated, liquid cooling solution lowers
the GPU temperatures found on the 4870 X2 by as much as 28 degrees. This enables
the cards to have optimum overclocking potential for the extreme applications,
but to also run completely silent. Only the system heat exchanger fan that
typically runs at a very quiet 30 dB(A)—equivalent to a loud whisper—can be
heard.

Asetek is the only liquid cooling company whose rigorous shock, vibration, and
thermal stress testing assures a 50,000-hour operational lifetime with
absolutely no end-user maintenance required.
