Hvis man åbner op for den nye kompakte HP Firebird 803 gamer PC, vil man se en komplet vandkøle løsning fra danske Asetek.
Det kompakte kølesystem køler både grafikkort, processor og chipset.
Asetek announced today that its industry-leading liquid cooling solution has been selected by Hewlett Packard for use in its innovative, compact HP Firebird 803 Tower with Voodoo DNA. By using Asetek technology to cool all major components — CPU, Chipset, and two MXM graphic cards — HP was able to pack a lot of performance into a small footprint package while achieving a unique deadly silent, high performance, and energy efficient system.
"Enthusiasts and power users no longer need to tolerate the annoying noise common in high performance systems," said Jim Handy, Chief Analyst at Objective Analysis. "This high growth market segment is demanding ever increasing performance in dramatically smaller form factors at little to no noise. This complicates thermal management and is driving major OEMs to adopt liquid cooling as a solution to the thermal dilemma."
Enthusiasts need extreme performance in a quiet machine that takes less space. Packing a lot of CPU and graphics power into a smaller unit demands a solution for efficiently moving heat out of the system without noise that can adversely affect the computing experience. HP Blackbird proved Asetek's ability to deliver a robust OEM thermal solution. HP and Asetek collaborated to extend the solution to cool additional major components and craft a solution for Firebird that delivers low noise and high performance in a substantially smaller chassis.
Seen by many as the "little brother" to the full-sized HP Blackbird 002 gaming system, the compact Firebird 803 packs outstanding gaming and graphics performance into a much smaller footprint while providing very low acoustic noise. The HP Firebird 803 uses liquid cooling to chill all major components of the system including the Intel® Core 2 Quad Processor, dual NVIDIA GeForce 9800S small form factor graphics cards in SLI configuration, and the system logic chipset.
"We are pleased that Hewlett Packard once again selected Asetek as their partner to create the liquid cooling solution for this new and unique system," says Gary Baum, Asetek's Senior VP of Marketing and Sales. "The compact Firebird 803 was designed to meet the needs of end users demanding high performance systems in a substantially smaller, whisper-quiet system. Liquid cooling makes this possible."
