Asetek announced the availability of its LCLC liquid cooling solution for OEMs for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 and 260 graphics cards:
"We are extremely pleased to provide a single-slot graphics card cooling solution with no graphics fan noise." says Gary Baum, Asetek's Senior VP of Marketing. "Our thermal solution extends overclocking performance for the maximum PC gaming experience."
Asetek's highly integrated solution lowers the GPU temperatures found on the GTX 280 by up to 27 degrees, enabling it to run significantly cooler—critical in advanced gaming or graphics intensive applications. And since the Asetek solution is totally liquid cooled, OEMs can expect their units to run completely silent, except for the system heat exchanger fan that is 30 dB(A) quiet.
Asetek is the only liquid cooling company that provides rigorous OEM level reliability and environmental testing. Shock, vibration, and thermal stress testing assures a 50,000 hour operational lifetime with no end-user maintenance required.
Furthermore, as a single-slot solution, when used as part of a three-way SLI configuration, the LCLC product consumes only three of the six slots normally used, freeing up three slots for other configuration upgrades.
