Zalman TNN 500A - Complete Heatpipe Cooled Case
Posted by [PM], 07/24/2003 04:43 PM
Zalman will be adding a new product to their CNPS (Computer Noise Prevention System) product lineup soon. We've seen excellent CPU coolers and heatpipe VGA coolers from the korean company, before but the TNN 500A will be nothing like you've seen before. The yet unannounced TNN 500A is a completely silent aluminum chassis that functions as a massive heatsink itself. No big deal so far? Right, but add some copper heatpipes to the mix and we might see a decent product. The chassis will feature six 6mm (diameter) CPU heatpipes capable of dealing with 150W/s heat transfer rate. Today's high end CPU's heat transfer is lower than 85W.
The VGA unit uses two 6mm (diameter) heatpipes (50W) which is, according to Zalman, enough for GeForce FX class hardware. The TNN 500A comes complete with 300W fanless PSU and is mounted the chassis via an aluminum plate. Harddisk will be cooled with a heatpipe array consisting of ten 5mm (diameter) copper heatpipes. The chassis has enough room to take on four 5,25" and up to six 3,5" devices. Check out the photos below:
