GIGABYTE V-Power

 

The GIGABYTE V-Power is an older GPU Cooler that fits several cards that needed an aftermarket solution the most. On the surface you can tell the V-Power uses the 7900GTX design, but GIGABYTE has added a couple of nice features like LED lights to give that vintage card new life.

The GIGABYTE V-Power had me crossing my fingers that an actual graphics card was in the package, but it wasn't. On the front we see the cooler with a 90mm fan right in the middle of it all.

 

 

The back side packaging does a really good job of explaining how the cooler works and the ease of mounting it to your graphics card.

 

 

I have seen this design somewhere before...

 

 

I thought I had seen it before, but the bottom is completely different than the 7800/7900 GeForce cards. Here we have a copper base, four heatpipes and lots of cooling fins.

 

 

When the cooler has power the red area lights up with a brilliant glow from the LEDs that are inside of the plastic.

 

 

The V-Power uses tightly packed fins on each side of the fan, air is pushed through the system and over the fins.

 

 

The GIGABYTE V-Power comes with lots of accessories including a fan speed controller, memory and VMR heatsinks and several power adapters.
