GIGABYTE Announces Second Generation Silent-Pipe Technology

GIGABYTE Announces Second Generation Silent-Pipe Technology
-- Silent-Pipe II raises the bar for quiet operation from VGA card coolers --

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leader in quiet graphics card cooling solutions, today announced Silent-Pipe II technology that generates natural airflow to provide more efficient cooling without the use of a heat sink or fan. This is achieved through a unique design that draws cool air in through a new proprietary front-flow thermal module to remove heat from the heat sink on the VGA card. With the improved natural airflow generated by GIGABYTE Silent-Pipe II technology, even hardcore 3D processing applications can run smoothly and reliably with minimal noise from high-speed VGA card cooling fans. With its extremely quiet operation, GIGABYTE Silent-Pipe II technology is ideal for home theatre and media center enthusiasts who require impeccable performance from high-end graphics cards without the intolerable whir of cooling fans.

GIGABYTE Silent-Pipe II Features and Benefits
Feature 1. Proprietary front-flow thermal module: the first Dual-slot heat pipe solution to utilize a convection slot at the back of the chassis to increase thermal dissipation.
Feature 2. Natural convection design: Silent-Pipe II technology artfully uses the temperature difference between the inside and outside of chassis, creating natural system convection.
Feature 3. High-precision die-casting process: uses the latest high-precision die forming technology to increase the thermal conductivity of the material that makes up the heat sink.

Feature 4. SLI ready: designed for compatibility with dual card configurations.
Feature 5. High performance heat pipe with sintered powder wicks: with the industry's best powder-style pure copper heat pipe for ultra efficient thermal conductivity.
Feature 6. 3D performance ready: designed stability during demanding 3D applications.
Feature 7. Integrated architecture design: heat pipe and GPU actually make contact to provide unequalled heat conductivity.

Compared with other 6600 GT heat pipe and fan solutions, GIGABYTE Silent-Pipe II technology achieves outstanding thermal performance and with unmatched quiet operation.

GIGABYTE Silent-Pipe II technology will be available on a range of GIGABYTE VGA cards that include the GV-NX66T128D-SP with GDDR3 memory and the GV-NX66T256DE with DDR2 memory. For more details, please visit GIGABYTE VGA website at :
