Asus readies passive GPU cooling

Xbit Labs has the goods on a new passive cooler that will be featured on upcoming Asus graphics cards. The fan-less SilentCool cooling system will first be available on a GeForce 6600 GT, but an optional external cooling module apparently enables the system to handle GPUs that dissipate over 80W. Asus isn't the only graphics card manufacturer to dabble in passive cooling; Gigabyte's GA-RX80L256V Radeon X800 XL is one of many recent cards equipped with silent coolers.
