Gigabyte presents two GeForce GTS 450 graphics cards with non-reference cooling solutions. The GIGABYTE GV-N450-1G uses the reference clockspeeds while the
GIGABYTE GV-N450OC-1G is overclocked, but unfortunately Gigabyte has not yet revealed the exact frequencies of this card.
Taipei, Taiwan, September 13th, 2010 – GIGABYTE Technology Co. LTD., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, is pleased to launch the latest GeForceTM GTS 450 series, GV-N450OC-1GI and GV-N450-1GI.

GV-N450OC-1GI features industry-leading innovative cooling design, WINDFORCETM 2X-Smart Dust-Reducing. It effectively reduces fan dusts and creates ultimate silent environment. For GV-N450-1GI, copper core fan helps lower the temperature by 14%. GIGABYTE GTS 450 series is also equipped with the latest graphics technologies including NVIDIA® 3D VisionTM and PhysX® to set a new standard for HD gaming.
WINDFORCE 2X: Smart Dust-Reducing Cooling
GV-N450OC-1GI features GIGABYTE WINDFORCE 2X-Smart Dust-Reducing cooling design. Adopting anti-turbulence inclined dual fans, GIGABYTE WINDFORCETM 2X is able to minimize turbulence between fans and enlarge air channel in the graphics card vents. What’s more, users are given two fan mode options, Dual Power Mode and Smart Alternate Mode to satisfy all their needs. Under 3D gaming, users can use Dual Power Mode to enjoy cool gaming environment. Under 2D usage, users can manually switch to Smart Alternate Mode to have fan dusts cleaned. Users will enjoy longer fan life span by this smart design. In addition, WINDFORCETM 2X is quipped with 2 copper heat-pipes to strengthen the speed of heat dissipation.
To provide better cooling system, GV-N450-1GI is equipped with copper core fan. Large copper rod contacts GPU directly to enhance heat dissipation. Along with ultra quite PWM fan, GV-N450-1GI is cooler by 14%.
