Hey Have any body heard of this cool looking cooling fans? I have read some of the reviews and it seems pretty cool. Hopefully somebody can tell me where can I buy such cooling fan. The website addy is www.aerocool.us Pls. let me know.
i'm guessing the theory behind the slow fan was that there's alot of volume to suck up the heat. i say thumbs down. looks like it will get in the way of things, is made of aluminum and i'm not diggin the fan in the side. go with an slk 7 or better.
If you read the website, you'll find that it was designed to be able to run completely passively, relying only on air flow within the case. However, it ships with a fan as extra insurance. I think it should perform decently, especially considering it's rated noise level. The one German review site was able to run their 1700+ with 1.71 volts and overclockered and achieved temps in the 50s, with noise levels below 30 dB. I'd like to give it a try personally, however I'd also rig up some way to bolt it to the motherboard instead of hanging it off the ZIF socket. Seriously, that HSF (if you can call it that) has lots of room for improvement, I'd really enjoy seeing what I could do with it.
Aerocool DP 101 is using the Super conductor tube not just a heat pipe like cooler master has.
I have contacted Aerocool.us and they provided me with some interesting spec for this Supertube Technology. It is a few pages long and if anyone interest just drop me a note so I can email it to you.
According to Aerocool.us, Tiger Direct, Atacom.com, xpcgear.com, and even the Japanese site users-side.com has contacted them and will be carry their product pretty soon. Currently this product is selling very well in Korea, Japan, and Europe and Aerocool just started to introduce to the US market by establishing a branch office in California (Check Aerocool.us for more info). Also, some Distributors has started to distributing this product in the US market already.
I got one sample when I visited their booth in Cebit show in Germany, and it performance is just fantastic. This is definitely a must for OC. Overall, I agreed with many review site that had tested Aerocool products and I'm sure they will be a big impact to other competitors.
Here is one of the info for Super Conductor (SuperTube):
Examples of Conductance Coefficient �gK�h and �gVelocity �gV�h for Heat Transfer in Different Media
The DP101 is retail at about US$35. Is that too high for Brazil Market? How big is the gaming market in Brazil?
I know that Clubedohardware.com.br is going to review this product soon. That review might be able to get some local distributors interest very soon and you might be able to get it locally. Don't give up.
Here is more spec quote from Aerocool:
The important characteristic of the Supertube is that it can form three basic layers on the internal surface of the Supertube. Each layer’s average thickness is between 0.002mm – 0.008mm. The main functions of the three layers are: delay the corrosion and oxidation of vessel material effectively and prevent it producing oxy hydrogen, thus improving the performance stability of the Supertube and prolonging operation life.
The inorganic heat transfer medium is liquid-state compound. Heated and excited, it gasifies and transfers heat constantly from the hot end to the cold end. The outstanding heat transfers capability can be determined by the difference in temperature on the external tube.
