Have one of these cards? You could win 1,000 EVGA bucks!
 
https://www.evga.com/articles/01177/
 
December 14th, 2017 - 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? EVGA is looking for a few of these cards and is willing to pay 1,000 in EVGA Bucks for them!
 
ACS (Asymmetric Cooling System) History
  • February 6th, 2002 – ACS Available for GeForce4 MX 440 Introduced
  • March 1st, 2002 – ACS2 Available for GeForce4 4600 Ti Introuced 
    ACS
    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!
     
    ACS2
    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!
     
    Contest Rules
    It's quite simple, if you have one of these graphics cards today, EVGA wants it and will pay you 1,000 EVGA Bucks for it! This Miracle is available for a maximum of 3 ACS owners and 3 ACS2 owners. Just be one of the first 3 registered owners of either card to submit your information to participate in this exchange!

      My dad passed away in 2003 and I remember him putting a nvidia card of some brand in his computer before he died. Would I be eligible for the evga bucks if it is the right card since I got his computer? Or is it not even worth me going and looking at what it was he put in there?

      I have an MX 440 in a box somewhere... I don't believe it's EVGA tho. I think that card out-dates when I finally "saw the light" lol.

      Probably far less then they would for my 3dfx 6000. Very few of those made it out into the wild all are review samples.

      So are these cards going to be used in some kind of EVGA retrospective display to be used at trade shows?

      So I have a EVGA GeForce 4 MX 440 ACS from 2002 right in front of me, but I called and was told I cant register it because I didn't keep my receipt from 2002... when I was 15 years old... 
       
      EVGA reached out over twitter and said that this was a mistake and that you just had to call in again, I did and success my old EVGA GeForce 4 MX 440 ACS is registered!

      That's some nice luck right there for hanging on to an old card for so long 
       
      Of course, I'm not jealous at all... nope, not at all...

      I think the contest rules were pretty straight forward, they must be an EVGA ACS Series card.

      Hoggle
       
      Probably far less then they would for my 3dfx 6000. Very few of those made it out into the wild all are review samples.


      I know it's totally random but wow that brought me back to when I made a double waterblock for it.  Just wish photobucket didn't kill it.
