With the package out of the way it's time to move onto the card, and of course the main feature of the card is the silent cooler used. Looking over the top of the card you can see the two copper heat pipes that run throughout the card.
The cooler is split into two sections; we have the one bit that sits over the core and the other bit that sits at the front of the card and lets the heat escape. GIGABYTE calls this Multi-Core Cooling.
Apart from the aftermarket cooler, we have the standard PCI Express power connector located at the back of the card along with a single SLI connector sitting at the top of the card. Fortunately, the design of the cooler doesn't block you off from using the SLI connector which is something that has happened before with passively cooled cards.
The I/O department has two Dual Link DVI connectors and a single TV-Out port. As you would expect, the card is dual-slot and you can see that the fins for the cooler actually come out slightly here to help let the hot air escape.
The TurboForce 9600GT from GIGABYTE comes overclocked with a 720MHz core speed, 1800MHz shader clock and 2000MHz DDR memory clock on the 512MB of GDDR3 memory. The clocks are pretty impressive for a silent card and should fare rather well in our tests today.
