Inno3D GeForce GTX 480 iChill Black Series review -
Inno3D has been around for many years and has been a close review partner for Guru3D.com, they always have their reference based products, then products with a little extra to be found in slightly overclocked version and then there is their iChill series. iChill always tickles the more enthusiast users, typically found in extraordinary cooling for their graphics cards. I think it was last year that they opened up a new market though, addressing the really enthusiast crowd, with a water-cooled graphics card labeled under the iChill Black Series.
Recently there have been more announcements from Inno3D regarding their iChill products, the new Fermi based enthusiast range of graphics cards get hot, really hot. And since the very beginning we already have been saying this, GeForce GTX 470 and 480 products would work really well on liquid cooling. A recent review on the GeForce GTX 480 with a Danger Den Cooling block (water-cooled) has shown that the performance is tremendous really. 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.
Have a peek on what we are about to review, and then head on over to the next page.
Seek and thou shall find ...
In this article we review the beast, the GTX 770 HerculeZ X3 Ultra from Inno3D is locked and loaded with the mighty HerculeZ X3 cooler, that's three slots wide but keeping the GPU under 55 Degrees C and completely silent. Pure awesomeness. That's not all though, it is factory overclocked for you at a very high level but even so can be tweaked quite a bit further.

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.
