CEBIT 2007: Silence of the air

 

 

 

    CoolerMaster has updated their lineup of CPU and graphics coolers, and we bring you the most interesting news from the air cooling department.


Coolviva pro / pro2 are very similar graphical card coolers with aluminum fins, and aluminum base with a smaller copper plate for the GPU. Their main advantage over most of today's high end coolers is that they have an air outlet-ducts, so the hot air doesn't circulate around the card. When compared to ArcticCooling X2, the fins on CoolViva pro are rotated for 90 degrees, and as we said – this design allows air to be taken out of your PC.


There are three heat pipes incorporated in to the cooler's body, and the universal clip design allows you to mount this cooler on ATi or Nvidia cards. Fan has a rotational speed from 700 to 1800 rpm for pro and 1500-2000 rpm for pro 2. Both of the models make the same amount of noise at their top speed, about 20 dBA. Memory is cooled via small memory heatsinks.

    Coolviva Z1 is a passive solution, compatible with Nvidia 8300 / 8400 / 8600 cards, and Ati medium end cards. Cooler comes with 8 smaller memory heatsinks. No info yet on the compatibility with newer ATi cards.

    Cooler Master also introduced a new CPU cooler Mars2. It can be mounted on all modern age sockets, and is completely made out of copper (base and fins). To transfer heat more quickly, the cooler uses four heat pipes, and sleeve bearing fan is used to pump the air over the coolers surface. With 685g, the cooler is in heavyweight category.
