Graphics card cooling is an art form. No one recognizes this better than Scythe. Having fathered many proven designs in the past; the Setsugen promises to follow in the footsteps of the best.
Stock cooling on video cards is a love/hate relationship. For a good majority of us, we are loathe to start pulling apart our investments for the sake of sound or temperature. For some however performance is the key; getting ever last hertz out of their card becomes essential.
Scythe being on the forefront of cooling offers up the Setsugen to keep the fires tamed. The Card in question, NVIDIA’s own GTX260.
Cooling is accomplished with Copper heatpipes; all four going to their own independent aluminum fin array. Attached to this is Scythes latest ‘Slip Stream’ fan. This allows the cooler to take up less room in the case and around the video card, so SLI Fans need not worry. Standard in most aftermarket solutions will be heatsinks for other parts of the Video Card such as the ever hot running voltage regulators.
With fan VR control and weighing in just shy of 390g the Setsugen is ready to meet the demands of those who prefer something more than just a reference cooler. And unlike most it is set to do it without the user sacrificing their beloved Multiple GPU Solution.
