A Closer Look

The card is nice and compact, which should make it well suited to more compact system builds. The cooler is pretty big, especially for a PCB of this size, but judging by the thickness of those monstrous heat pipes on the side, it’s certainly not just for show.

The shroud has a very nice design to it, and while it’s a little oversized from the PCB, this allows for a much bigger heat sink and two large fans; bigger fans move more air and can be run at lower RPM.

Around the back, connectivity is robust, with 2 x HDMI, 2 x DP, and 1 x DVI, which are all you need for any modern display, and you can easily hook up multiple displays too.

Around the other end, there’s a good bit of ventilation, so the card should be able to pull in extra airflow, and shift heat easily through the aluminium fin stack, plus there’s plenty of ventilation at the rear exhaust.

The massive heat pipes certainly look awesome, and the pass through that massive heat sink. The card is designed to cool the chipset, as well as the memory and chokes, which will certainly help with stability given this is an overclocked card.

Finally, we’ve also got a lovely brushed metal back plate, not that I think it’s needed, but it looks great. The card draws its power from a single 6-pin PCI connector. Now, let’s get it installed and test it out!
