Asetek have been quiet for a while now, but they too have just unveiled a new liquid cooling solution for 9800 GX2/GTX based graphics cards. Asetek promise this sucker to reduce temps by over 25c compared to the standard air cooler on reference models whilst also keeping noise output down to just 22dBa which is also down by more than 50% over the usual dust buster.

SAN JOSE, Calf. April 2, 2008 - Today Asetek announced the availability of its liquid cooling system for the new nVidia GeForce 9800GTX and GeForce 9800GX2 graphics cards. Asetek is the first liquid cooling solution developed to exceed the stringent thermal performance, low noise and daunting reliability requirements demanded by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
The graphics GPU power budget is constantly increasing as enthusiasts and professional workstation end users exhibit an insatiable desire for higher frame rates and resolution. Thermal management of the graphics card is an ever increasing challenge with every new generation of Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), often at the sacrifice of acceptable fan noise.
