There are usually two types of people looking for aftermarket video card cooling; those who want to overclock the card for additional performance, and those who want a quieter solution from the often times audible stock cooling solutions prevalent on many of today’s offerings. Whatever the case may be, Thermalright is there to help with its new T-Rad² GPU cooler.
The T-Rad² combines everything Thermalright is known for; precision design, copious heat pipes and cooling fins, and a quality mounting system — all in a compact package. In fact, the T-Rad² is one of the few high-performance coolers on the market that can work in SLI and Crossfire setups for today’s scorching-fast cards. With the cooler under 25mm thick, it can work in a multi-card environment as long as there are two PCI slots between the the video cards presuming standard 25mm thick fans will be used. The slim design also fits in most mATX environments, making it attractive for HTPCs and LAN gaming.
