Advancing from their well thought out OTES (Outside Thermal Exhaust System) feature found on several enthusiast boards in the past, ABIT have just introduced their latest silent OTES system which provides highly effective passive northbridge cooling with the help of heatpipe technology. It shouldn't be too long before we start seeing ABIT boards pop up with the inclusion of this very swish new cooling design. Full details in ABIT's supporting annoucement.
Monday, April 25, 2005 - ABIT Engineering has done it again; but unlike the high performance coolers like OTES™, OTES AeroFlow™ and Dual OTES™ before it, this one won't be making a sound.
Today ABIT is proud to announce its latest innovation, the Silent OTES™ (Silent Outside Thermal Exhaust System), a device specifically designed to silently cool the motherboard's North Bridge chipset. Silent OTES uses ABIT-designed heatpipe technology to transfer unwanted heat from the North Bridge to the fins of the Collection Module. From there, heat is exhausted outside of the case by air flowing from the CPU fan.
