Asus Silent Knight II processor cooler for quad-core chips

Posted on Wednesday, Sep 05 2007 @ 14:19 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
ASUS unveils a new processor cooler designed to keep quad-core processors cool. The Silent Knight II HSF has a pretty nice design and features a copper base, six copper heatsinks and copper fins to dissipate all the heat from your power hungry processor.

The heatsink also features a fancy 90mm fan with blue LEDs which is designed to direct air to the surrounding voltage regulation chips on your motherboard. ASUS claims this will lower the temperature of the VRMs by up to 10-15°C.
The Silent Knight II is an all-copper CPU cooling solution that utilizes the natural heat conducting properties of copper. With its large heat exchange area, lightweight design to relieve stress on the motherboard, and six curved heat pipes to efficiently transfer heat to the fins, processor temperature is always maintained at levels most suitable for high-performance and reliable computing. Additionally, the Silent Knight II also incorporates a PWM function fan that automatically modulates fan speeds according to the CPU temperature and delivers a quiet cooling at a mere 25dBA.
