Gigabyte bring out sexy water cooling for memory
Sometimes, short of writing everything down (isn’t foresight a wonderful thing?) we forget the product name, but you see this time we have an excuse, the new memory cooling solution from Gigabyte is both funky and downright cool.
Featuring a self-contained water cooling system the unit is powered by a single fan header on the motherboard and features a pair of fans cooling a small radiator hovering above the dimms.
The system features two heat spreader units with allow the liquid inside the system to move the heat away as quickly as possible. The pump on the underside of the radiator is designed to ensure vibration is kept to a minimum too.
Without testing it we can’t say how effective it is at this time, and unless you are really pushing your system the need to water cool your memory is down to personal opinion.
The only downside we can see with this solution? It can only cool two dims at anyone time, better make them some high capacity fast dims to get the most from the system then!
