Thermaltake TMG ND5
The second Thermaltake VGA cooler we received is the TMG ND5, a GeForce 8800 series only cooler. The ND5 uses a large fan to lower acoustic levels and a large aluminum fin area helps to quickly move the heat way from the GPU and memory.
Super Silent 80mm low speed fan
Unique leaf design reduces the wind noise produced from spinning fins
Enter bearing: The oil from a traditional sleeve bearing will evaporate over time, allow more friction between the bearing units, producing noise, and shorten the lifetime of the fan. The Enter Bearing design allows extra oil capacity to elongate the life of the fan and reduce fan noise.
4 heatpipes bring heat from the GPU directly to the large surface area of high density fins
Effective cooling for the GPU and the video card memory at the same time with bundled aluminum memory heatsinks.
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS (G80)
Thermaltake makes the TMG ND5 the focus of the front of their package.
The back side lists the specifications and a general performance chart.
The ND5 is a wide cooler that hangs off of the graphics card by a couple of inches. Here you see the large fan and plastic shroud that covers the aluminium fin area.
Thermaltake used a large copper plate that mates perfectly with the 8800GTX's large IHS. The memory is cooled by the surrounding aluminium plate. From the factory, the cooler has thermal paste pre-applied to the cooler where the GPU sits, but in this image it has been removed to check the surface area.
Along the side you can see four of the heatpipes that are routed through the cooler.
The heatpipes help to spread the heat from the base to the fins.
The accessory package has all of the needed thermal pads but uses the same VRM heatsinks that the DuOrb came with.
