GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 470 Super Overclock Video Card - Temperature Test

We look at another Super Overclock card from GIGABYTE. This one's a little meaner than the HD 5770, though.

Temperature Tests

 

 

With the TES 1326 Infrared Thermometer literally in hand we found ourselves getting real-world temperatures from the products we test at load (3D clock speeds).

 

There are two places we pull temperature from - the back of the card directly behind the core and if the card is dual slot and has an exhaust point we also pull a temperate from there, as seen in the picture.

Compared to the standard GTX 470 cooler, this one is significantly better. Compared to the other GTX 470s we've looked at it's also the best with only 470s running at 100% fan speed running cooler.
