    Re: Asetek PCIe slot Rad Card cooler debuts in Alienware Aurora R11

    I dont get that cooler, why a radial fan and not 2 regular 120 mm fans on a regular radiator.
    And then have the pump on the GPU, or at least in the back end of the cooler.

    I mean there are plenty of air coming thru the cooler below, why not direct it up at the GFX card above to air cool the rest of the board, maybe with oversized cooling profiles on whatever.
    A flexible rubber seal in between the 2 should make sure the air go over the GFX before it exit.

    I have often contemplated something like this, from a single bracket in a pci slot to cool GFX above, as before by current project i have always used GPU coolers and not full profile coolers
    But i have also contemplated putting a radiator there with the fans as i never use all the extra PCI slots, so it is just empty space.

    My current project do sort of the same, after the four 140 mm fans have pushed air thru the two 280 radiators the now a little hotter air will be directed to "wash" over the motherboard, before it find its way out of the case, at the top where it will again pass thru two 360 mm radiators to strip just a little more heat from the coolant just after the CPU & GPU.

    Not that it have ever been a problem for me, but i always focused my computer builds to make sure there was no idle air sitting anywhere above any PCB.
    cuz when you got air moving, why not have it work for you 2 times,,,, or more.
    Back in the AIR days i have even made GFX cards 3 X as heavy with large cobber coolers and fans. :-( i have owned some pretty damn heavy AGP cards in my day.

    I guess so it can work in as many configurations/systems as possible

    Constrained systems will barely take one dual slot card,let alone two!

    I think someone did that already so i guess this is because different, would be interesting to see how it compares with whoever did what you describe, i can't remember who it was but it was fairly recent iirc.

    Wait so if heat rises, what happens to the heat generated on this when it goes up towards the graphics card in these pre-built poorly ventilated systems?

    Re: Asetek PCIe slot Rad Card cooler debuts in Alienware Aurora R11

    If something like that hit the open market it is clearly not for every PC out there.
    Some will have limitations in the motherboard they use, either from its factory configuration / layout, some will have problems due to the case they use ( with a small mobo i assume you could mount the cooler/fans on the bottom, if there is a option in the case to take air in that way )
    And some will have problems due to all the things they must have plugged into their motherbord that otherwise have plenty of room.

    But this is nothing new, creative people will make it work, less creative will just pay their way around the problem ( buy new hardware )
    My project case do not support 2 x 280 radiators in the front, but i can make that work ( just ) and as i prefer have at least 1 ting no other have in this otherwise "popular" level 20 XT case.
    And i am putting a few more twists on it too, just to be sure, one of which i know not many will do, and that is to replace all the glass on that case with something not transparent.

    Sooner or later a retail producer, like Asetek, will start selling whole immersion cooling techniques, as have been used in industrial scale electronics for many years.

    A good coolant for full immersion cooling - just soaking the whole Mobo and cards in a tank of recirculating coolant, like 3M's Novec (which, for anyone interested in chemistry is Methoxy-nonafluorobutane).

    I wonder if they will make a version for the upcoming AMD cards

    I'd have to cut holes in the side of the case to poke the extra radiator outside the case and strap it down. Or, just forget the fps contest and wait another 12-18 months for the next gen cards to beat it with less power&space. But what else do you expect from someone (me) not gaming on their PC. But I did modify a NAS for better & quieter cooling.

    That's neat. Using a couple spare slots makes sense, it reminds me of the corsair H5 cooler for SFF builds

    It doesn't.
    Hot air rises. Heat can go down, and even sideways.
