Looking at the card, it's funny to see something so small, yet still be dual slot while at the same time being an active cooled card. It looks pretty funky on a whole and kind of mean considering the size. I did have some concerns about the small fan, as the size does tend to cause the card to be more audible. We'll see what numbers it puts out after we look at the performance of the card, though.
The card carries with it the same single 6-Pin PCI-E power connector. It's angled out a little differently to what we normally expect; we figure that's due to the size of the card and for the most part it shouldn't cause any problems for you.
Connectivity is a little slimmed down which is no surprise. We've got a single Dual-Link DVI connector and a HDMI port. You may've noticed what's missing is the standard SLI connector we're used to seeing on the model. This would be to help make this size possible. I have to say, though, it would've been cool to have a little SLI GTS 450 Low Profile system, but really, it's something you most probably wouldn't see; it also would probably make the low profile design impossible.
The low profile version of the GTS 450 from Palit is clocked at the default reference speeds. This isn't much of a surprise since the fan just won't be as strong as some of the full height cards that are overclocked in excess of 900MHz.
This puts the clocks at 783 MHz on the core, 1566 MHz on the Shader and 3608 MHz QDR on the memory clock.
