The Jonsbo VF-1 is a desktop graphics card without the graphics
Jonsbo is a Chinese computer manufacturer specializing in PC cases and processor cooling mounts. Its latest product, however, is a unique GPU cooling solution unlike most others in the market. Called the VF-1, the cooler attaches to a free PCI Express slot adjacent to the user's existing graphics card for supplemental cooling. It takes the shape and dimensions of a standard video card but tosses the PCB for a row of three active fans. Power is provided by the same 4-pin SATA connector that modern HDDs and SSDs rely on.
Each fan on the aluminum Jonsbo cooler is 120 mm in diameter with a ~1500 RPM operating range. Its very simple design should appeal to desktop builders who want additional cooling without resorting to costlier and more involved liquid solutions. At its best, the VF-1 will lower the peak RPM of the graphics card fan(s) to reduce the chances of louder fan noise and pulsing when the GPU is under load.
The manufacturer is promising a core temperature drop of about 5 degrees C with an installed VF-1. Actual results, of course, will depend on user setup and the graphics card itself. Price and availability are still unknown as of this writing. If anything, the VF-1 will go quite well with the even more absurd Eurocom MXM Riser Card.
