The reference design cooler has a single mid-mounted fan in a shroud. The standard Gigabyte card has two fans and heatpipes but with just a cover. This is the best of both worlds as we have two PWM fans and four heatpipes enclosed in a shroud to help keep the SOC as cool as possible. 

Just above the green sticker on the reverse you can see a NEC Capacitor which really helps keep the power delivery smooth and stable to this 1GHz beast.

The combination of the blue PCB and very shiny heatpipes really make the Gigabyte GTX560Ti SOC stand out. It's an attractive card that's for sure.

The heatsink has loads of fins to help give as much surface area as possible for heat dissipation.

At the business end we have a mini-HDMI and the standard twin DVI ports. Power is provided by two PCIe 6pin inputs. Whilst this naturally draws more than the reference design it's still much easier on your electric bill than a very high-end card.

I want to get a 560 but i'm waiting till after the 590 comes out for the price drops. I usually go with Asus for my GPUs but I think i'll give Gigabyte a try after seeing the results for this card.

Also 14,471 PPD my 6850 only gets 3.000 PPD

I am really wondering if this specific FERMI card will do the same in my EVGA board and PCI-E slot one Quote

Nice review there Tom, looking forward to seeing the video to get a good idea of the fan sound.

I may upgrade to one of these and sell my 5850, the Twin Frozr II cooler is just a tad too loud when above 65% speed for my liking... excellent cooling though.

Plus I keep meaning to try a new nVidia card.Quote
