Detailed Look

 

ZOTAC has crafted a mostly plain, but still aftermarket look with their GTX 960 AMP! Edition card. We have a dual-slot card that requires a single 6-pin PCIe connector, with a dual fan cooler and massive heat pipe array underneath to keep it nice and cool. Let's take a closer look.

Before you can use the card, you'll need to remove the sticker you see above. It also shows you that there is something that ZOTAC calls "Freeze Tech" which is "integrating performance, silence, and efficiency into cooling" so that the "fans will stop spinning in low loads".

Looking directly at the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 960 AMP! Edition, we can see the two fans that will keep the entire card nice and cool. Underneath that is a nice big heat sink and heat pipe setup that will draw the heat from the Maxwell-powered GPU, through to the fans that will push it out and away.

On the back, I'm surprised to see a backplate on a cheaper card, but here we are. The backplate has a couple of uses: for one, it looks great. Secondly, it takes more heat from the card which is always good, and dissipates it behind the card. This is especially important when two of these are used in SLI.

Here we have the single 6-pin PCIe power connector, which will keep the power consumption down on the GTX 960 AMP! Edition.

The SLI connector is out in the open, making two of these in SLI nice and easy to set up.

As you can see, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 960 AMP! Edition is a very nice looking card indeed.
