Asustek introduces new CPU cooler for quad-core processors
Press release, September 5; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 5 September 2007]

Asustek has announced the Silent Knight 2 CPU cooler that utilizes 100% copper for its fins, base and heat pipes; and dynamic fan speed control to deliver efficient heat dissipation for the latest quad-core processors.

The Silent Knight 2 is an all-copper CPU cooling solution that utilizes the natural heat conducting properties of copper. With its large heat exchange area, lightweight design to relieve stress on the motherboard, and six curved heat pipes to transfer heat to the fins, processor temperature is maintained at levels most suitable for high-performance and reliable computing, said Asustek. Additionally, the Silent Knight 2 also incorporates a PWM function fan that automatically modulates fan speeds according to the CPU temperature.

The Silent Knight 2 supports the Intel Core 2 Extreme series, Pentium D and Pentium 4 processors; as well as the AMD Athlon 64-FX, Athlon and Sempron processors.

The voltage regulation shield inside the cooler directs airflow created by the 9cm LED fan to surrounding VRM (voltage regulation modules) that are critical to processor operations and overall system reliability. This unique design effectively reduces VRM temperature by 10-15-degrees Celsius.
