Did you know that EVGA was the first to introduce the "Blower" Style fan and the first to use a heat pipe on a graphics card?
ACS (Asymmetric Cooling System) HISTORY:
• 2/6/2002 - ACS Available for GeForce4 MX 440 Introduced
• 3/1/2002 - ACS2 Available for GeForce4 4600 Ti Introduced
Remember the EVGA GeForce4 MX 440? Back then was when EVGA first introduced ACS (the Asymmetric Cooling System), it was the first serious attempt to improve the way cooling devices for video cards were made and employed. ACS was designed in a new, efficient manner; with a much larger heat sink with far more surface area to allow for much better heat dissipation; and the fan was placed off center from the GPU so as to allow it to be better protected from extreme temperatures and to allow it to create a much more efficient air flow through the entire unit. In other words, the first "blower" style cooler on a graphics card!
EVGA's next effort was ACS2 - a revolutionary design idea that was built to support the Ti 4400 and Ti 4600 line of graphics cards. ACS2 had to meet a number of new challenges that included both GPUs that were getting hotter than ever, and memory whose temperatures were steadily increasing. To accomplish this, ACS2 kept the offset fan that is central to the ACS design philosophy while at the same time enlarging the heat sink to cover not only the GPU, but the memory as well. Added to that were three copper heat pipes that helped to quickly move heat away from the card's memory and GPU and into a large copper thermal chamber. This makes the EVGA GeForce4 Ti 4600 the first ever graphics card to use heatpipes!
