Sparkle released a new GeForce 9600 GT graphics card with a special cooling system. The card is clocked at 700MHz, has 1850MHz shaders and 512MB GDDR3 memory clocked at 2000MHz.
The ordinary GeForce 9600 GT Graphics Cards on market may have a daunting thermal performance puzzle due to the insufficient wind pressure and airflow from the reference cooling fans. Now with strong R&D teams, SPARKLE addresses the issue by specially introducing Dual Fly Cooling System for the Calibre P960 Graphics Card to replace NVIDIA reference cooling fans which only have ordinary cooling effect.

This high-efficient Cooling System developed by SPARKLE itself consists of aluminum die-casting thermal base with copper core inside, three high-efficient heat pipes and dual cooling fans with 0.2 mm thin cooling fins. When the GPU starts working, the copper core inside the aluminum die-casting thermal base will quickly take the working heat from the GPU to the heat-pipe horizontally put inside the thermal base, and the heat will be equably and rapidly spread to the left part and right part of the aluminum die-casting thermal base, at same time, the two circular heat pipes also quickly bring the heat from GPU to the 0.2 mm thin cooling fins, now the strong wind pressure and airflow made by two cooling fans take all the heat out of the cooling module.

This Cooling System developed by SPARKLE itself can get the most heat exchange area in a limited space, guarantee a highly efficient cooling effect. Besides, the cooling fans of the Dual Fly Cooling System can be adjusted aslant, so not only MOS circuit on the PCB can be cooled efficiently, the whole cooling efficiency can be raised too. According to the cooling test data provided by SPARKLE, when tilting the two cooling fans of the Dual Fly Cooling System 15 degrees, the GPU and video memory working temperatures can be 10 and 1.87 centigrade degrees lower than the reference cooling fans.

The chassis environmental temperature also dropped by 4.66 centigrade degrees. At the same time, compared with the 30.6dB working noise brought by the reference cooling fans the Dual Fly Cooling System exclusively provided by SPARKLE has obvious advantage, its working noise only reaches 29dB.
