When NVIDIA released their GeForce GTX 480 the heat levels had to be compensated for somehow, NVIDIA opting for a cooling solution that is rather loud. With the release of the GeForce GTX 470 things had gotten a fraction better, but the GPU was still putting out lots of heat and as a result the cooling fan rotation of the cooling solution had to be configured at a high-RPM, again making the product noisy when in full use.
As such many NVIDIA board partners went on a quest to find better 3rd party solutions. A handful of the AIB/AIC partners managed to put some interesting stuff on the table. Palit was amongst the first to say it out loud and proud; "we have a custom cooling solution for the GeForce GTX 470".
Guess what we'll be testing today? Yep -- The Palit GeForce GTX 470 with dual-fan custom cooling. A pretty nice card as right now the prices have dropped a little on the GTX 470. We spot prices starting at 315 EUR for the product we test today. Will it be good? Will it be able to handle the heat levels and keep noise under control? I mean, Palit has put a heatpipe based cooling solution on top of the GTX 470 with two active fans.
Well, you are here to find it all out, head on over to the next page, but not before you've had a good look at the product tested, and you'll agree with me... aesthetically this is a good looking card design.
