Several months ago, the ASUS P5Q Series motherboards drew much user attention with its aesthetic-driven heatsink and heatpipe design. Now, ASUS, world-leader in motherboard production, has once again carried on in this tradition to provide outstanding design concepts to users with the new ASUS P6T Deluxe motherboard. The upcoming P6T Deluxe will utilize the new Intel X58 platform, and will combine the latest technology with a revolutionary thermal concept to help create a brand new user experience. This exclusive thermal technology, dubbed the Wind-Flow Design, integrates a heatsink with a radical design to efficiently disperse and cool down chipset temperatures—providing users with more stability for reliable operations.
New Wind-Flow Design Concept
The new heatpipe design on the P6T Deluxe combines the concept of wind flow with an integrated cooling heatsink for the Northbridge. The heatsink is crafted with curvaceous grooves that not only creates a visual impression of wind flow, but smartly manages the airflow of the CPU fan to direct system heat away from the PC to aid in lowering temperatures.
Effective New Design Thermal Solution
Aesthetics aside, when it comes to real-life performance, the curved grooves on the Northbridge heatsink do indeed work as air flow “channels” for effective heat dispersion. When heat generated by the CPU is directed away by the CPU fan, part of this hot airflow is directed towards the Northbridge area. It is here that the grooves on the Northbridge heatsink work effectively to guide the heat away from the CPU according to the curves’ direction. Furthermore, in order to cater for more stable overclocking, users will be able to attach a 4cm chipset fan* directly to the Northbridge heatsink—allowing even better airflow for cooler temperatures during overclocking.
