Abit is announcing a new technology for their motherboards called Silent OTES that will offer the same cooling benefits that we saw on their previous boards withouth the hassle of additional noise.
April 25, 2005 - ABIT Engineering has done it again; but unlike the high performance coolers like OTES™, OTES AeroFlow™ and Dual OTES™ before it, this one won't be making a sound.
Today ABIT is proud to announce its latest innovation, the Silent OTES™ (Silent Outside Thermal Exhaust System), a device specifically designed to silently cool the motherboard's North Bridge chipset.
Silent OTES uses ABIT-designed heatpipe technology to transfer unwanted heat from the North Bridge to the fins of the Collection Module. From there, heat is exhausted outside of the case by air flowing from the CPU fan. The result, a totally silent platform offering excellent cooling efficiency while utilizing the existing CPU fan, ultimately providing enhanced performance, stability and a quieter experience for the end user.
