Auras Fridge (JES-988)
Auras took a different approach with their VGA cooler, about the only thing this cooler doesn't fit is a CPU. Even cards dating back to the NVIDIA FX 5900 are compatible on the NVIDIA side. For ATI card users the Auras Fridge can go all the way back to the ATI X1800, a card that really needed an aftermarket cooling solution.
Right out of the box the Fridge is passive, so we are going to test the cooler with a low speed Nexus 120mm fan that passes enough air to keep our card cool while keeping the acoustics to non-existent levels outside of the case.
Four extra long copper heatpipes with 54 aluminum fins.
Stacked fins with double N-shaped optimize superior thermal performance.
Silent passive cooling / Compatible to graphic cards (NVIDIA / ATI).
Active cooling fan frame ready for overclocking (Capable with 80 or 120 mm fan).
Special rivet process on copper plate makes close contact to GPU.
Memory / Voltage Regulator module with special thermal interface material.

I have yet to see any Auras products on store shelves, but when I do they will look something like this. On the front we see a picture of the cooler, and through a window a small portion of the actual cooler.
The back side of the box has an illustration about the fan arrangement; the cooler comes passive out of the box, so for any of the high wattage cards you will need to add a 120mm fan or two 80mm fans.
On the top of the cooler we see the mounting rails for the fans and the four heatpipes that run from the front to the back of the cooler.
On the business end of the Fridge there is one contact point with the card, where the GPU sits. Memory and VRM cooling is in the form of add on heatsinks from the accessory package.
The fins are not packed tightly together so a low speed fan will do a decent job of keeping your card cool.
The fan rail is easily removed making the cooler change from a single 120mm fan to two 80mm fans.
Auras included a small tube of their thermal paste in the accessories package, as well as memory heatsinks and double-sided thermal tape for mounting the sinks to the memory. The package does lack aftermarket VRM cooling.
