Club3D GTX 560 Ti CoolStream OC Edition reviewed

Review: A very silent partner


Club3D
recently launched its GTX 560 Ti CoolStream OC Edition graphics card that, as the name suggests, comes factory overclocked and strapped with special cooling. CoolStream cooler with two fans should provide superior cooling to the overclocked core and at the same time be quieter than Nvidia’s reference solution.

In fact, CoolStream can be found on Club3D’s GTX 550 Ti CoolStream Super OC Edition that launched yesterday, although with one fan only.

GTX 560 Ti CoolStream OC Edition card ended up overclocked to 880MHz for the GPU and 1760MHz for Shaders.  It features 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4100MHz and comes paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. We had a chance to check out GTX 560 Ti’s CoolStream cooler back at Cebit but today we’ll see how it fares aboard the GF114.

The card currently goes for about €214, which is about €5 more than Club 3D’s reference GTX 560 Ti goes for.

The GTX 560 Ti’s ticker is the GF114 GPU, which received plenty of positive acclaim so far and we’ve seen that the card boasts nice performance-per-clock ratio as well. Nvidia set GTX 560 Ti’s reference clocks at 822MHz for the GPU, 1644MHz for shaders and 4008MHz for memory. When the card is idle, the clocks go pretty low – 50.6MHz for the GPU, 101MHz for shaders and 67.5MHz for the memory.

Before we move on to the card, let us remind you that the GF114 is a derivation of GF104, as is evident from the number of transistors (1.95 billion). However, the GF114 packs a few improvements inherited from the GF110
