A Closer Look


There is a lot of detail on this card, which makes me feel like they are trying to more of a technological feel to the aesthetics. A single 92mm fan only spins under increased loads to cool the components, the GPU, VRAM and other hot components are solely cooled by the water cooling solution.

The backplate is a much slicker design than the previous ‘Devil’ models, adding splashes of color and the logo/ name of the card in the centre of the GPU heatsink retention screws.

Power is delivered through a 6-pin PCIe and 8-pin PCIe power connections. These may prove an issue for anyone with big fingers to try to release the connections due to the large overhang from the cooling shroud.

The card has a deceiving profile, the fan is mounted at a slight angle to allow for air to be pushed through the card towards the I/O plate. This makes the card almost a 3 slot height and would be Crossfire difficult on some motherboards with two close PCIe slots.

The radiator is a simple 120mm design with mounting holes on the front and rear to enable a push-pull configuration of the fans for maximum cooling capabilities.

At the business end of the card, there are 2x DVi connectors, 1x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI.
