NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti Quad-Slot Prototype Cooler Has Hidden Fan

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti Quad-Slot Prototype Cooler Has Hidden Fan
Jul 31, 2023

NVIDIA's unreleased GeForce RTX 4090 Ti graphics card had a gigantic quad-slot cooler, which a prototype design was leaked out and up for grabs -- for the low, low price of $120,000 USD -- but now we're getting a deeper look at the inside of this beast, that unfortunately won't be inside of your new Gaming PC.

The quad-slot prototype GPU cooler featured a PCB-mounted 90-degree angle to the PCIe interface itself, cooled by a triple-fan cooler and a gigantic heatsink, but inside... there is a secret fan, that I'm actually in love with. The design is gigantic, but that hidden internal fan would do wonders for cooling, well I guess it would, as we can't exactly test the thermals on this prototype GPU cooler.

The new images have been shared by "Hayaka" who looks to have the quad-slot GPU prototype cooler in hand, with a huge 22 heat pipes and vapour chamber cooling the card.

Interestingly, the PCB placement is wicked, and the 12VHPWR power connector loops around the heatsink itself, something that NVIDIA couldn't avoid given the repositioning of the PCB. We will probably -- unfortunately -- never see NVIDIA use this cooler outside of the expensive prototype.
