BFG debuts GeForce 8600 GT cards with ThemoIntelligence

Posted on Friday, August 17 2007 @ 02:05:00 CEST by

BFG has launched four new graphics cards with their ThemoIntelligence cooling system:
“We’ve added our custom ThermoIntelligence custom cooling solutions to our 8600 GT lineup, lowering GPU temperatures up to 18°C over the reference cooler”, said Dean Brady, Sr. Director of Marketing for BFG Technologies. “This translates into increased reliability and performance for our customers.”

Better cooling solutions often come at the expense of space inside your computer, many of them taking up two add-in card slots when installed. The BFG 8600 GT series with ThermoIntelligence fansinks only use a single PCI Express slot, leaving you with room for other add-in cards.

Many custom cooling solutions today increase the fan speed to reduce temperatures, but this results in excess noise. The 8600 GT ThermoIntelligence fansink was specifically designed not to increase acoustic noise while providing, on average, an 11°C lower GPU load temperature. For users running two graphic cards in an NVIDIA SLI configuration, the thermal performance improves with the primary graphics card operating at up to 18°C cooler
