PNY Technologies Inc. have launched their new All-in-One Liquid Cooled Graphics solutions and is now on sale. Currently two options are available: the XLR8 Liquid Cooled GeForce GTX 580 and the XLR8 Liquid Cooled GeForce GTX 580 with CPU Cooling.
The latter has been produced in conjunction with Asetek, a leader in CPU thermal management, and will provide the gamers with easy out-of-the-box installation. The liquid cooling is in a close loop and will allow more overclocking headroom, as well as the quietness of fan speed reduction.
PNY’s new XLR8 solution presents significant benefits, with 30% reduction in GPU/CPU temperatures, 30% noise reduction and 10% faster performance than the standard card. The reduced fan noise is something avid gamers will like, as this will allow for better gaming, and the headsets to cover the noise won’t be required.
“Designed to increase performance while reducing noise and temperature, PNY’s Liquid Cooled Graphics offers the fastest factory-overclocked card currently on the market at 857 MHz,” said Nicholas Mauro, senior marketing manager, PC components for PNY. “The simple all-in-one design offers a powerful, yet easy to install and cost-effective gaming solution that’s backed by the PNY warranty. This highly anticipated graphics option will enable more enthusiast gamers to experience gaming in a whole new way.”
