Thermaltake SubZero 4G Thermo-Electric Cooling {AMD K7}

Thermaltake SubZero 4G Thermo-Electric Cooling {AMD K7}

The advancement of PC processors is growing rapidly on a global scale. From 500 MHz to more than 4 GHz, today’s thermal technology is required to have higher functionality and extreme performance. Today, Thermaltake is bringing you a new part of CPU cooling code named SubZero4G™. SubZero4G™ will be the ultimate solution for today’s high-speed processor.

SubZero4G™ is designed for PC users who need lower noise level and improved performance. SubZero4G TM comprises a cooling unit, a PCI card (power and control unit) and a LED case fan.

The cooling unit consists of a cold plate, a thermo-electric module, a heat sink, and a CPU fan. The cold plate is directly mounted on the CPU. The thermo-electric module carries the heat from the cold plate to the heat sink. The CPU fan takes away the heat and case fans remove the heat to outside the case.

The PCI card includes an AC/DC power supply and a microprocessor. The microprocessor detects the temperature by ambient and CPU temperature sensors and then outputs adequate power to CPU and case fans. In short, the 3-step fan speed is controlled by the microprocessor.

Swiftech MCX462+T Thermoelectric

Features:
* 226 Watts Thermoelectric module
* Optimal cooling capacity: will dissipate 70 Watts continuous thermal load to ambient temperature with 80CFM fan.
* Hybrid copper base, thin aluminum pin heatsink: thanks to it's massive 3/8" thick copper base, the MCX462+T is the first commercial air-cooled heatsink on the market capable of absorbing, and dissipating the combined thermal load produced by a thermoelectric module of this class, and the latest generations of Intel micro-processor.
* Patented Helicoid pin design (U.S. patent 6,469,898) : pins are individually machined in an helicoid shape, to increase their surface area, and further enhance heat dissipation efficiency.
* The 1/2" thick cold plate is also fully insulated to eliminate condensation

The MCX462+T retention mechanism requires the presence of four mounting holes surrounding the processor socket, and is compatible with the following processors: AMD Duron and Athlon XP & MP 2000 and higher. The corners of the heatsink are notched to provide clearance for capacitors located close to the socket.
