ECS GeForce 8800GT Dual Turbo - passive or with fans

Posted on Friday, December 07 2007 @ 00:25:29 CET by

ECS unveiled a new GeForce 8800 GT graphics card, the GeForce 8800GT Dual Turbo. This card features a passive cooling system from Arctic but you can also mount two fans on the heatsink to get the temperatures a bit lower.
ECS 8800GT Dual Turbo Version Graphics Card allows better air flow thus removing the heat more effectively. With the great increased surface of heat dissipation around thirty times larger than regular cooler. It brings spectacular cooling effectiveness to supply a stable working environment. Furthermore, ECS 8800GT Dual Turbo Version Graphics Card equipped with turbo modules, which consist of dual high performance low-noise fans. It helps reinforced cooling performance under extreme quite operation. Turbo module also boosts up the GPU and memory overclocking ability and more graphic performance than ever before.
ECS compared this graphics card in their test lab against the GeForce 8800 GT reference model and claims the Turbo Version with fans reaches a temperature of only 64°C, that's more than 40% less than the reference model which reaches 91°C. Without the fans the card reaches a temperature of 73°C.

It's probably a good idea to reduce the cable clutter in your case a bit before you install this graphics card, those two fans are very exposed. Another potential issue with this cooling system is that it takes up quite some space and doesn't exhaust the hot air out of your case.
