Club3D announced it has adopted CoolStream technology for some of its graphics cards. Here's the marketing speak:
Club 3D CoolStream features high performance heatpipes that keeps the components cool and outperforms standard cooling solutions. Paired with a unique fan blade design it increases airflow while reducing noise. The result is a dramatic increase of performance for your gaming and multimedia experience.
The name derived from Cool as in “cold”, together with Stream as in “flow”. Illustrated below is the functionality of heatpipe-cooling. Which comes down to: a heatpipe contains fluid, which turns into gas (vaporizes) when it heats up, then it flows to the other end of the heatpipe, in this process the gas looses the heat and changes back into fluid and returns to the place where it begun. Thus creating a “flow” or stream.
CoolStream Technology will be used on Club 3D’s Nvidia and AMD chipset based products. This gives you up to 15% better heat dissipation than standard reference design coolers.
If you expect above the average performance on your Graphic card, Club 3D’s CoolStream Cooling Technology is just the kind of high performance that you have been looking for. Club 3D is currently using CoolStream Technology on HD 6900 + HD 6800, as well as on GTX 460, and will successively expand the range.
