Thermaltake Giant III: more cooling for graphics cards

Thermaltake Technology announced its new cooling system for high-end graphics cards Giant III.

Giant III bases on Giant II and is almost identical to such Zalman solutions, as ZM80. The Giant III differs by a dual heatsink fan (vs. the single of Giant II) and a blower for cooling the construction in general. The bundle also includes copper fins for memory modules and fan speed controller (occupying 1 x PCI slot on the back panel).
