Inno3D rushed out the product to us, with the question if we had the time to assemble it ourselves. Sure we do. We are Guru's, we love that kind of thing.
For this little project we'll use the Inno3D GeForce GTX 480 and apply the i-Chill GTX 480 LCS block ourselves. The product will actually go retail once Inno3D will get more volume of the cards from NVIDIA. Thus the final parts will be assembled for retail and with a specific i-Chill box and bundle.
Here we have the liquid cooling block. The waterblock was designed by BitsPower under model C1100, a Taiwan based cooling company. The block comes complete with SLI adapters, thermal grease, and what they call an EZ Plug design which boils down to very easy installation.
Design for Nvidia GTX480 Reference Design VGA Card.
Direct-Flow Design On Inlet/Outlet.
TOP Cover Made Of POM.
Bock Base Made Of C1100.
SLI Ready Application.
Polished Stainless Steel Panel Fixed.
This model has literally a mirror finish, that certainly looks great. It is a lot of bling inside the chassis though. Mind you that fittings and clamps for your tubing are NOT included and need to be purchased as an optional.
In this review we'll look at the GeForce GTX 660 Ti from Inno3D, it's their all new GeForce GTX 660 Ti iCHILL version and to date is one of the most impressive graphics cards in the 660 Ti range we have tested.
Inno3D GeForce GTX 580 OC review
We review the Inno3D GeForce GTX 580OC. Despite a very high price tag the product seems to become a nice success. As such directly at launch several models based of this SKU where already announced, e.g. the regular clocked models, factory higher clocked models, liquid cooled models. This OC edition, in particular this is a reference GeForce GTX 580 that has been clocked faster to 820 MHz on the core where it also welcomes a nice bump on the overall memory frequency.
Inno3D GeForce GTX 460 OC review
We test and review the Inno3D GeForce GTX 460 OC. The Inno3D GeForce GTX 460 OC model we test today flexes the GPU and memory muscle all the way up towards a rocking core of 750MHz, the shaders to 1500 MHz and the GDDR5 to 3800 MHz (effective). Armed with a 2-year limited warranty, Inno3D is trying real hard to not only bring a nice custom board to the market, but tries to release pre-overclocked models at a fairly normal pricing, yet with a hefty overclock. And whenever there's 'overclock' in the branding .. there is of course Guru3D.com
Inno3D GeForce GTX 480 iChill Black Series review
We test and review the Inno3D GeForce GTX 480 iChill Black Series. This GeForce GTX 480 graphics card is liquid cooled. With a liquid cooled loop you can bring down temperatures towards roughly 50 Degrees (under full load), that's roughly 40 degrees less than the reference cooler offers. Obviously you'll need a proper water-cooling setup to add this card to but yeah, today we'll review the i-ChiLL GeForce GTX 480 Black Series equipped with a liquid cooling block. In the package we'll spot a "full cover" water-block that is responsible for cooling down the GPU, Voltage Regulators, I/O chip, memory modules, and other critical components.
