BXBoards brengt ons een review van de Tennmax Lasagna BGA Cooler, een compacte koeler die onder meer ingezet kan worden bij het koud krijgen van een GeForce. Zoals we vaker hebben gelezen blijkt extra videokaart cooling nauwelijks resultaat op te leveren:
At this time I’d have to say that if you’re really not wanting, or needing, either of these (GeForce or the TennMax) items, I’d really wait until the next generation of NVIDIA's chips come out. They will probably be a little easier to cool. At the current time, the amount of transistors and such on the NV10 produces too much heat to make it an easy card to overclock. Even though Nvidia’s cards in the past have been great for overclocking, this one just packs too much of a punch on it’s chip to cool down when trying to crank it up. As with most first generation tech, it’s usually better to wait for the next generation to come out, because by then it’s refined and ready to rock.
I’d have to say that about the same goes for the cooler. The Lasagna BGA is a great product and has a vast range of applications. You can use it to cool just about any chipset out there, either video or motherboard logic, and if you really think about it, you could probably come up with other uses for it. But at this time I’d have to say that unless you have money to burn, I’d stick with the factory HSF.
