GIGABYTE unleash the G-Power 2 Pro

On a mean 85c lean

We've just received some information and pictures highlighting a new CPU cooler entering GIGABYTE's G-Power lineup, the G-Power 2 Pro.

The curvaceous arched design of this cooler is the first thing to attract one's attention, with the first fin on the heatsink being angled 85c from the last. GIGABYTE have done this to allow for better cooling of the surrounding MOSFET components, chipsets and capacitors, as well as better directing the heated air away from the components and towards an exhaust point.

You can view GIGABYTE's news release on the G-Power 2 Pro here, and there's also a fancy flash demo showing it off on GIGABYTE's website.

Derived from the actual curve are heat-dissipating angled fins with the first fin angled 85° from the last. This widens out the exit air convection path to facilitate further cooling from the likes of surrounding MOSFET components, chipsets, capacitors and even channel the resultant heated air in the direction of the rear system fan or fans. Expectations are met with the use of a pure copper-base, thickened heat piping, and even atmospheric LED fan backlighting, all of which are chromatically finished.
