Sycom puts Noctua fans on RTX 4070 and 4060 Ti series

A Japanese company is collaborating two Noctua and Nagao for its entirely custom series. 

The ASUS Noctua RTX 4080 is no longer the sole NVIDIA GPU model in the current generation to feature Noctua fan designs. While the Noctua RTX 4080 was designed in close collaboration with Austrian cooling manufacturer Noctua, even adopting their distinctive brown color accents, the Japanese company Sycom has taken a different approach.

Sycom has partnered with Nagao Industry, a company that has developed a specialized frame capable of accommodating two Noctua fans, as well as potentially other fans of similar size. They have announced two graphics cards, utilizing either dual Noctua NF-A9x14 PWM or dual A12x25 LS-PWM fans from the low-speed fan series, which ensures a low noise level and for that Sycom has data to back that claim.

Sycom, while not a direct NVIDIA board partner, collaborates with various OEM suppliers who can provide graphics cards with customized cooling solutions. We’ve previously covered several of Sycom’s designs, often involving custom air and liquid cooling solutions. However, the introduction of the Silent Master fans represents a new direction for the company.

“Sycom custom ultra-quiet air-cooled video card, incorporating Austria’s Noctua fans known for their highest quality, into an original fan cover designed and manufactured domestically by Nagao Seisakusho.

Through extensive testing and careful material selection, Sycom has achieved a level of noise reduction and cooling performance that sets it apart from off-the-shelf products. This marks the birth of a truly unique original component, exclusive to build-to-order (BTO) manufacturers.”

In total, three cards were announced, either based on RTX 4070 (quad-slot design) or RTX 4060 Ti with 8GB and 16GB memory. The latter is a dual-slot model and each card is powered by one 8-pin power connector. Worth noting that there is no factory-overclocking on any of these cards.

Sycom asserts that their cards maintain a noise level of under 40 decibels (dBA), implying that when installed inside a closed computer case, the card produces noise that is nearly imperceptible. The company substantiates these claims with their own testing results and goes a step further by providing detailed specifications of the test system. This particular design, which is based on the Core i7-13700T, incorporates a fanless Noctua NH-P1 cooler and a fanless power supply, further contributing to the overall quiet operation of the system.

From the looks of it, these cards will be offered with Sycom prebuilt gaming systems, there is currently no information about availability through DIY channels, but even in taht case it will be limtied to the Japanese market.
