From the pictures below, it is pretty obvious that The Card
Cooler represents a simple, yet different design from
regular slot coolers. Whilst other contending slot coolers
take up at least an additional PCI slot, The Card Cooler
mounts on top of your existing PCI / AGP cards and takes up
none! One simply
needs to screw on The Card Cooler bracket atop your AGP /
PCI slots via the same screws used for your existing AGP /
why didn’t anybody think of this sooner?
And I don’t mean the penguins…
Assuming this cooler is
generally used for cooling graphics cards, The Card Cooler
would rest on top and between the AGP slot & PCI Slot
#3, spanning a total of 4 slots.
It blows air downwards to cool the various cards /
components below via two 3” 2.0W chassis-sized fans.
I was also surprised to note how quiet the fans are,
as compared to my other powerful (but noisy) Elan Vital and
Cooltium chassis fans. This
could be attributed to its lower RPM spin-rate in
comparison, although it is more than capable of moving a
sizeable amount of air at a decent rate for cooling.
Ma, no slots taken!!
sure you screw in tight, as this guy’s pretty
does it make my 50 deg C graphics chip any cooler??
