Damn the GeForce 4 reviews keep coming and coming !
This time one from Hexus about the ABIT Siluro OTES GeForce4 Ti 4200 :
The OTES Ti 4200 is effectively a GeForce4 Ti 4400 in disguise, sans the extra 64MB that ships with the reference Ti 4400. Taking that into account, performance exhibited by the OTES is a cut above a standard Ti 4200 in all our benchmarks. The overclocked OTES, running at 300/605 clocks, fell just short of matching a standard GeForce4 Ti 4600 in the gamut of benchmarks. The only time that I really felt the extra 64MB of RAM on a Ti 4600 make a difference was in the texture-intensive Codecreatures benchmark.

Although I'm a little disappointed in the overclocked clockspeed attained by the OTES Ti 4200, running at a rock-solid 300/605, We must remember that the headroom potential of modern GPU is perhaps more down to luck in receiving an unexpectedly good core than it is to do with enhanced air-cooling. Having said that, I feel that the OTES' cooling system can only enhance your overclocking chances
