Introduction

It hasn't taken long for companies to start jumping on the bandwagon when it comes to modified versions of the GTX 400 series. We don't mean the normal bump in clock speeds, though; instead we're talking full on cooler redesigning.

 

Let's be honest; there's some serious room for improvement..The stock cooler is too loud and even then the core runs too hot. Plus, if overclocking the model has let us find out anything, it's that there's some head room to be offered.

 

The first update to the GTX 470 comes from Galaxy. It carries with it everything we want, including a new cooler that looks the goods along with an overclock. Looks can be deceiving, though; the Galaxy GTX 470 GC card might only look the goods and do nothing extra over the stock one. But let's hope this isn't the case.

 

Before we have a closer look at the performance, we'll first look at the package Galaxy has put together followed by a closer look at the card, its cooler and more importantly to some, its overclock.
