GIGABYTE GV-N480SO-15I Super Overclock
Andy Ruffell / 8 years ago
Gigabyte’s GeForce GTX 480 Super Overclock is a fully customized GTX 480 design. Gigabyte has massively changed the PCB for their GTX 480 SOC, including the power conversion circuitry. Another area of interest is the improved cooling solution on the GTX 480 Super OC which uses a triple fan cooler and vapor chamber heatsink base.
Thanks to Gigabyte’s own OC Guru overclocking application, users have control over GPU and memory voltage which comes in handy when doing more extreme overclocking. Another feature for extreme overclockers is the LN2 BIOS on the GTX 480 Super Overclock that is accessible by the press of a button located on the card.
Gigabyte’s GeForce GTX 480 SOC is available online for $469 which is only a minor increase compared to other GTX 480 cards that are targeted at overclockers.
