Check out the Inno3D iChill HerculeZ GeForce GTX 660 which we review. The new flagship mid-range card series is using a HerculeZ 2000XE cooler, with its three slots the card is completely silent and runs ridiculously cool. We received SKU model C66M-2SDN-E5GSX which comes factory overclocked as well with a boost clock frequency at 1058 MHz and the memory at 6212 MHz. This to date makes it the fastest GTX 660 we have tested and as such for just over 200 EUR the product beats the GeForce GTX 660 Ti. Interested ? Well go read the review then.
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.
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. Read article
Inno3D has released GeForce GTX 295 iChill. This card has a single GTX 295 PCB with a shiny cute single-slot waterblock. The product name will be Inno3D GeForce GTX 295 iChill Black Series and it's going to be one exclusive product to find in the stores I'm afraid, but we managed to get a sample into our lab. The GeForce GTX295 iChill edition comes pre-overclocked and is stuffed with a sweet game-bundle that will make your ears wiggle a little bit, it's a product that in most scenario's is faster than a Radeon HD 5870 as the the GTX 295 packs 480 Processing Cores and 1792MB of GDDR3 memory and has its clock frequencies set on 600 MHz on the graphics core, 1242 MHz on the shader domain and 2160 MHz on the memory.

Inno3D released a GeForce GTX 260 iChill edition with AC Accelero GTX cooler. he card is the SP216 version, an updated 55nm GPU based GeForce GTX 260. The 216SP versions, obviously referring to the 216 shader processors that are active and crunching data for you in that GPU, which is 24 shader processors more than the regular GTX 260.
The card has a 620Mz for the core clock frequency and 2,100MHz on the memory. Despite the mammoth looks and size of this cooling solution, we are just so impressed. Read article
Luckily there are some NVIDIA board partners who try to do things differently & Inno3D is one of them. Actually I think Inno3D has like five or six different SKUs based on the GeForce 9600 GT, but one stands out. It's their GeForce 9600 GT iChill edition graphics card with ZeroTherm HC92 cooler. It's actually a DIY kit with the very best cooler we ever tested. Read article
Earlier on at launch time we already reviewed their OC model GeForce 8800 GT, today we'll have a look at that other product line from Inno3D, the one that is so much treasured by our audience, the iChill versions. This product ships with a significant higher clock frequency. The card comes with an overclock from reference 600MHz to 700MHz and uses 512MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1,000MHz (2000 MHz effectively). Read article
iChill technology basically boils down towards a better software bundle, cooling, overclock and a nice price. Within the Inno3D "iChill" range of products however there are several product lines with different cooling options. Some cards have Zalman cooling, the others have Arctic Cooling products cooling the cards. Today's model has is a heatpipe cooler with active fan called the XStriker3. Read article
Inno3D has released the iChill series of products. A twofold cooled series, one with Zalman cooling the other with Arctic Cooling products cooling the cards. That's what we'll be focusing on today. it's not "just" about that cooler though, there will be plenty of other stuff to look at when we review this card, much higher clock frequencies, gold plated connectors, high overclockability, low noise cooling. It's really impressive. Read article
