With the power consumption of computer graphics cards having increased significantly in recent years, it is now more important than ever to effectively manage cooling and heat dissipation in these important components. Achieving maximum performance from the graphics card is essential if the gaming experience is to be enhanced to the full. Overheating not only affects the gaming experience but it is also detrimental to the service life of the graphic cards.
When graphics card integrator Colorful set out to design their latest high-end graphics card series iGame KUDAN, the Chinese company decided that a combination of air-cooling and liquid-cooling within the graphics card module, would be the optimum solution for maximum heat dissipation.
Clearly, a coupling supplier with extensive experience in cooling within datacentre and super-computer environments would be the ideal partner for this application. Stäubli’s proven reputation within these sectors were key to the company being selected to provide the safest and most-effective solution. Stäubli's quick-release couplings feature non-spill, flush-face technology that guarantees a perfect seal during use and the connection / disconnection phase.
The incorporation of Stäubli’s coupling technology within the iGame KUDAN series high-end graphics card modules plays a key role in maintaining the optimum cooling rates, ensuring not only safe operation, but extending the life of the graphics card whilst delivering the best gaming experience for the user.
Established in 1995, Colorful is now a firmly established brand with a history spanning over 20 years.
