SilentPower PC Comes With New Cooling Solution, a Copper Foam Layer
Gabriel Roşu / 2 years ago
The new Silent Power PC seems to be coming with a revolutionary cooling solution, distancing itself from the traditional heatpipe and heatsink coolers. The PC is said to come with a copper foam, which helps cool the system, making it one of the best silent cooling solutions available in a rig.
The foam is said to be placed on top of the chassis and transfers heat from internal components with the help of its “micro-circulation” feature. The cooling solution works by having the air present inside it heat up to extreme temperatures, which in turn makes the foam expand and move to the extremities. This is said to create an effective air circulation inside the case, without having any fans present in it.
There are three system variations currently available as a crowdfunding pre-order option, having the target funding for the project set at €45,000. Once the targeted fund has been raised, the systems are said to enter in the production phase.
The systems differ in RAM and hard drive capacity, having them with either 8 or 16 GB of ram or with a 500/1000 GB solid state drive. Other than the latter variations, all systems are said to boast an Intel Quad-Core i7-4785T clocked at 2.2 GHz and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 graphics card.
An interesting feature present in the system’s configuration is a movement sensor that can power it automatically when you sit at your desk. Other than that, the base model is said to be priced at €699 / $930 coming with 8GB RAM and 500GB SSD. Other higher-end versions are said to be priced at €769 / $1,030 and €1,159 / $1,550, coming with more RAM and/or disk space.
