With the package out of the way, it's now time to have a look at the card itself. We don't really see anything that we haven't seen before as far as the overall heatsink design goes.
Leadtek has of course added its own flavor to the cooler with a sticker. On the fan we can see the brand and the model, while the rest of the card is taken up with a sticker of a robot warrior.
Looking around the card, we continue to see nothing out of the ordinary. Towards the back of the card we have two 6-Pin PCI Express power connectors. Moving closer to the front of the card we have our two SLI connectors which give us the ability to run up to three of these bad boys together.
Finally, moving to the I/O side of things we find two Dual-Link DVI connectors along with a TV-Out port. We also have some exhaust holes that help let the hot air escape from the card and out the back of the system.
Carrying the Extreme tag, it doesn't come as any surprise that the GTX 260 from Leadtek comes overclocked out of the box. The core has been moved from the stock 576MHz to a healthier 602MHz.
The 896MB of GDDR3 memory has also been increased from 1998MHz to a nice sounding 2214MHz. And finally, the shader clock has been moved from 1242MHz to 1296MHz.
