Card Specifications

 

ZOTAC has three different GTX 950 cards on offer, with the GTX 950 AMP! Edition sitting at the top. The second-best GTX 950 from ZOTAC is the GTX 950 OC, while the plain GTX 950 has no overclocking applied to it.

Cooling Setup

 

ZOTAC doesn't just build cheap cards, it builds very high quality pieces of technology that have various technologies that make them excel. The company has its awesome ExoArmor technology on the card, giving it a great feel - and even touch to the hand. We also have Freeze Tech, which has the card not making any noise at idle, and even during operation the card is whisper quiet - and in some games like League of Legends, absolutely silent.

As you can see, we have two large fans that keep the GM206 GPU underneath nice and cool, with a pretty big heat pipe system (for the size of this card at least) keeping everything running beautifully cool.

The backplate will take some more heat away from the card, especially the back of the card which can get considerably warm during heavy loads.

Here you can see the heat sink and heat pipes underneath the fans.

And once again, from the front end of the card.
