Club3D GTX 560 Ti CoolStream OC Edition reviewed - 2. A closer look at GTX 560Ti CoolStream

Review: A very silent partner

Before we show you the pictures, here’s what Club3D has to say about CoolStream technology:

" Club 3D CoolStream features high performance heatpipes that keep the components cool and outperform standard cooling solutions. Paired with a unique fan blade design, it increases airflow while reducing noise. The result is a dramatic increase of performance for your gaming and multimedia experience.

The name derived from Cool as in “cold”, together with Stream as in “flow”. A heatpipe contains fluid, which turns into gas (vaporizes) when it heats up, then it flows to the other end of the heatpipe. In this process, the gas looses the heat and changes back into fluid and returns to the place where it begun, thus creating a “flow” or stream.

CoolStream Technology will be used on Club 3D’s Nvidia and AMD chipset based products. This gives you up to 15% better heat dissipation than standard reference design coolers.

If you expect above the average performance on your Graphic card, Club 3D’s CoolStream Cooling Technology is just the kind of high performance that you have been looking for. Club 3D is currently using CoolStream Technology on HD 6900 + HD 6800, as well as on GTX 460, GTX 560Ti, GTX 550Ti, and will successively expand the range.

Club3D GTX 560 Ti CoolStream is almost 22.9cm long, like the reference 22,9cm (9 inches), and the card is 2 slots wide.

front-7

CoolStream cooler comes with 3 heatpipes and two 75mm fans. The fans are very quiet.

As far as video outs go, we have here the classic Nvidia design i.e. two dual link DVIs and mini-HDMI out. Note that only two video outs can be used simultaneously. Nvidia included an HDMI sound device within the GPU, so there is no need for connecting the card to your motherboard’s/soundcard’s SPDIF out to get audio and video via HDMI.

side-2

Geforce GTX 560 Ti comes with one SLI connector. This means you can combine up to two GTX 560 Ti cards in SLI mode for improved performance or image quality settings.

The card has two 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors.

The overclock brings it to 90C!?! Damn, this thing may not be great for OCing...

wtf, 1600 and 2300 rpm are "near inaudible"?

Seriously... I know I'm unusually sensitive about noise levels, but I think the reviewer might want to consult a professional about getting his ears checked.

/btw, my POV gtx 560 Charged gets to 980MHz (stable) with 1.00VCore^^
and (unlike the reviewed card) it really IS near inaudible while at it. It just has a bigger cooler (Accelero Xtreme)...
