CoolIT Systems brings liquid to 3870 X2

Slims down to a single slot!

| Posted: Jan 28, 2008 11:43 pm

How do you make an awesome performing graphics card even better? Why slap on a hardcore liquid cooling solution onto it of course; and this is exactly what CoolIT Systems has done for the newly launched Radeon HD 3870 X2.

 

The cooling specialists have just announced their third installment of their Reference series line of liquid cooling systems for Radeon graphics cards. Not only does this cooler provide much better overclocking headroom for the card's GPU and memory clocks, but it also trims the monster down substantially whereby it'll only occupy a single PCI slot.

 

You can read CoolIT's official PR on the new cooler here.

 

CoolIT Systems have also taken it upon themselves to prove the cooler's exceptional performance by posting up a video on YouTube which shows a 3DMark06 result of 23,500. You can check it out below :-

 

 


We are proud to successfully, leverage the micro-channel technology developed at the AMD thermal laboratory in Toronto in our solution. The cooling system for this card is extremely sophisticated given that we are cooling what amounts to a full CrossFire set-up on a single card. When you consider that most cards having only 1 GPU are typically taking up 2 PCIe slots compared to the CoolIT solution which not only delivers extremely effective cooling and higher clock speeds but also reduces the thickness to a single slot the combined CoolIT and AMD offering represents tremendous value. We recently benchmarked this card and were able to hit over 23,500 in 3D Mark 06, which makes this, by far, the fastest video card/cooling combination we've ever tested.
