As the 9600GT cards continue to roll on in, we see lots of variants trying to stand out from the pack. The latest card to rock up in the labs is an offering from ECS that carries with it an Accelero S2 made by Arctic Cooling.
This isn't the first time we've seen the Accelero S2 cooler, though this is the first time that we've seen it in use on a 9600GT.
We'll have a look at exactly how ECS make use of the Accelero S2 today, and how it performs compared to a 9600GT from another vendor that we've seen previously. To make the card that little bit more exciting on top of the aftermarket cooler used, it also carries with it an increased core and memory clockrate; we'll go into more details of that a little later on in the review.
