Cooler Grasp has showcased a novel graphics card cooling answer at CES 2024. The corporate has touted this as a next-gen customized cooling design that might exchange a triple-fan graphics card. Titled Undertaking VGA Cooler, this can be a totally different answer that includes the corporate’s twin Mobius followers. Many purchase triple-fan fashions due to the upper cooling capability. Nevertheless, in line with Cooler Grasp, its personal two-fan answer supplies wonderful noise ranges and higher airflow.

An ASUS TUF collection graphics card with a triple-fan design was disassembled. Then, this new prototype GPU cooler by CM was put in on the graphics card, as showcased at CES 2024.

Is that this one thing that you need to put in your GPU as an alternative of the triple-fan setup that it already has? That’s precisely what Cooler Grasp needs folks to do. Aftermarket GPU coolers have existed earlier than, reminiscent of Arctic’s Excessive III. These sorts of merchandise may make a comeback, and Cooler Grasp’s Undertaking VGA Cooler showcased at CES 2024 undoubtedly has me excited.

Cooler Grasp’s Undertaking VGA Cooler might not be as performant in offering a excessive cooling capability as in comparison with the extraordinarily beefy heatsinks that many producers supply immediately. High designs by producers like Asus with their ‘Strix’ collection, Gigabyte with the ‘Aorus Grasp’ version, and Maxsun’s beefy 5-fan RTX 4090 are some high-end AIB playing cards with wonderful cooling capability.

Nonetheless, this Undertaking VGA cooler by CM that includes two Mobius followers may function a wonderful GPU cooler improve for a lot of playing cards. Personally, I exploit an RTX 3080 Ti (ASUS Turbo), which is a blower-fan card that I purchased for my mini-ITX construct.

It has a single fan & vapor chamber and is tremendous loud, but it surely does cool the 350W GPU with out points in a dual-slot graphics card type issue. If I have been to exchange my graphics card’s cooler, and use it in a spacious full ATX system, this prototype Cooler Grasp Undertaking VGA cooler with Mobius followers would undoubtedly be on the prime of my issues.

CM does supply the Mobius followers as a product which you could purchase and add to your PC case. The model has not offered any particulars on the precise cooling capability of its Undertaking VGA Cooler that includes two Mobius followers. However given the corporate is focusing on triple-fan designs, I anticipate that in its present state, it may assist cooling of as much as 250-300 watts.

Third-Occasion GPU Coolers Are Cool & I Need Them on the Market!

Hopefully, Cooler Grasp will be capable to deliver this prototype to the market in a while. It could be extremely thrilling to have third-party choices for a GPU cooler and never need to make your individual janky answer for extremely particular PC builds. There are just a few points to contemplate, such because the variations in GPU board sizing. Cooler Grasp will most likely need to launch a number of variants supporting totally different GPUs.

Whereas there are not any pricing and availability particulars, we’ll replace you when there’s any information. We are able to exchange our CPU coolers with principally what we would like, reminiscent of 120mm to 360mm liquid cooling AIOs, massivemeasurement ATX air coolers, and even space-efficient designs for smaller builds.

However the identical isn’t doable for a GPU, and it’s a must to purchase one with an built-in cooler that may slot in your PC case with ease. I hope that third-party GPU coolers make a comeback within the {hardware} house!
