Sparkle's dual fan 9600GT
Sparkle, today annouced the release of a new GPU for it's Calibre series, this is not any old graphic card. This is a 9600GT with a dual fan cooling solution(shown on the right).
The GPU will run at 700Mhz core and comes with 512Mb GDDR3 clocked to 1000Mhz (2Ghz effective).  The Shader clock has been overclocked to 1850Mhz. But what makes it stand out is the new cooling solution, "Dual Fly".
The heatsink has a core of copper inside the aluminum die-casting thermal base which uses a heatpipe placed inside the thermal base to efficiently transfer the heat from the GPU. The heat is then transferred to the 0.2mm cooling fins via two circular heatpipes. Then the two high speed fans will do the rest, the fans can also be lifted to cool not only the heatsink but the PCB too. The fans aren't all that noisy either at load they will run at 29dBA's.

The price isn't bad either at around £115, I am sure this card will take off.

thanks for post

ah right i see. i thought there would be setting in bios!

ive gone from 500mhz core (default) to 810mhz core and 400mhz ram to 512mhz :) using the thermalright hr-03 rev a

not to bad!

i can run cod4 on high easily now :cool:

Thats not bad at all! All that from a 8500GT eh?

Very impressive if you ask me!

That's an insane OC! What kinda temps you getting with that?

tbh from my experience of overclocking gfx cards ive found ive never once had to play with voltages. GPUs are much more efficient then a CPUs, the whole card is so much better as long as you can manage the heat you can find you can keep pushing and pushing it.

Wow, nice clocks. Although, It would be dangerously unstable playing games at 60%+ overclock. Wouldn't it?

What an achievement though, Go you. :D

Jeez, seeing as I bought one the other week for $35 - I`d say that`s brilliant.

Awesome clocks there.

As for more, you would need to volt mod the card, which would require soldering. Unless you are trying to go for some LN2 records, I wouldn't really bother.

i think i was getting something like 49c on load and about 36c stable :)

Not to hijack the thread but when overclcoking Am i right in assuming no matter how far you pusth clocks (within stable limits of course) the temps are the same as your not adding more volts, am I right?

p.s thats a great overclock bye the way!!

Nup.... Things heat up regardless as it's running faster. Upping the frequency it operates at heats it up without extra voltage.
