Gigabyte unveils a 3D Cooler

Today Gigabyte Technology introduced a new cooling system for Intel P4, AMD K8 and K7 processors — Gigabyte 3D Cooler. The motto of the announcement is maximum cooling at minimal noise. It´s hardly original, but the cooler appearance is actually unusual.

Gigabyte 3D Cooler features copper base. The heatsink that has load fins and thermal pipes is designed for round airflow output. The engine features the dual ball-bearing providing the life cycle up to 70,000 hours. Gigabyte 3D Cooler can be controlled manually from a special panel installed into a 3.5" bay or in the place of a PCI slot stub.

Gigabyte 3D Cooler rotates at 2000-4000 rpm making 20-40dBA noise. The entire system weighs 430g. You can also see the traditional blue LEDs.

No production dates or MSRP has been disclosed yet.

P.S. And a couple of additional photos from Taiwanese 3D Speed:
