TPU came across photos of Colorful's new dual-slot Shark Bionic graphics card cooling solution that will be used on the firm's upcoming GeForce GTX 670 iGame Ares X.
The Shark Bionic cooler uses a compound heatsink design. At a nickel-plated copper GPU base, nine 8 mm-thick heat pipes of the same material make indirect contact with the GPU. The heat pipes then transport heat to three aluminum fin stacks, one directly over the GPU base, one over the VRM area, and a smaller one along the top of the card. The three are ventilated by two 80 mm fans. The design of the cooler shroud and fan blades are inspired by the shark, which work to guide the most amount of air with the least turbulence (resulting in less noise).
