This is the first Asus Nova in the Philippines. Designed for space-conscious users who demand ultra-quiet operations, the Nova requires only 122 cubic inches of space and incorporates an Intel Core 2 Duo processor that is cooled passively and actively by a heat dissipation module, heat pipes and fans. Supporting the 802.11n wireless standard, the Nova’s 300 Mbps transmission rate allows users to easily download a 30-minute HD video in just 44 seconds. It also has a pair of built-in speakers housed at the front of the unit. For home theater configurations, the Nova also supports 5.1 speaker configurations with Dolby Digital Live or DTS connect technology. Additionally, the Nova accommodates nearly any environment with ease because of its flexible horizontal/vertical placement, slot-loading drive and its sleek exterior.
Apogee releases the "Cool It Smart" Heatsink System that can add almost 50 percent of cooling efficiency.
The Walton Chaintech lab test results showed that the temperature of APOGEE GT DDR3 1800 memory module before using the Cool It Smart heatsink was 73°C. After using the Cool It Smart heatsink system, the module temperature had dropped to 52°C, which shows an apparent 21 degrees decrease. Additionally, when the optional dual fans were added on top of the heatsink block, the running memory modules’ temperature had reduced to as low as 38°C.
The Cool It Smart heatsink system is made of light-weight aluminum, it also allosws users to add optional cooling fans or water cooling parts for heat reduction.
