Noctua is known for its latest processor coolers, and the same is true for today’s legendary brown fans. But Noctua has now revealed that it is a new type of processor cooler that can handle heat even without active fans.
Noctua demonstrated a prototype of a giant 1.5kg heatsink at Computex a couple of years ago, which was able to cool a processor with a respectable TDP without fans. 120 watts. If ultra-quiet fans are added, they also handle the chips with 180W TDP.
Coming product news from Noctua
The Noctua actor is now on Twitter AdvertiseThat this type of coolant will go on sale soon, maybe this quarter. Noctua described in the aforementioned prototype that for passive radiator design it was necessary to devise a new type of heat pipe and a different design that reflected the requirements of modern processors. The new chips from AMD and Intel use many turbochargers and boost frequencies over a wide range, which can change very quickly.
Noctua previously mentioned that this passive cooler should work even in a cabinet that doesn’t have an air cooler, so you can set up a completely silent computer without a single fan. We’ll see what capabilities the final product will have.
