Gainward does something very different with their line of Phantom VGA coolers. These coolers use discrete fans that pull air into the aluminum heatsink fin stack, rather than pushing air through it. This results in a very sexy design. Gainward is very close to unveiling its GeForce GTX 780 Phantom graphics card and has made a teaser video for it which shows the updated design of the cooler. Read on to check it out!
This design makes cleaning the fans on the card extreme easy, you don’t even have to remove the card from your case. By removing thumbscrews the fans simply come out for easy maintenance. The cooler makes use of a thick aluminum fin-stack, which is arranged along the height of the card along with five 8 mm thick heat pipes. A base plate draws heat from the memory and a heatsink is used on the VRMs. Talking about VRMs the card uses an 8 phase VRM with solid-chokes and DrMOS.
To give you an idea of what the card will really look like here are some shots of the GTX 770 version.
No word on when Gainward will be releasing the card.
