Review: A very silent partner

Overclocking

Overclocking the GF114 should not be a problem, regardless of whether it’s reference or specially designed GTX 560 Ti. Most GTX 560 Ti cards will run stable at 920+MHz. Club3D’s cooling provides a nice foundation for a healthy overclock and we got to following results. We managed to push the GPU from 880MHz to 970MHz, and the card remained quiet throughout.

Thermals and Noise

As far as noise levels go, the GTX 560 Ti CoolStream’s cooler is almost inaudible when idle, with GPU temperature around 34°C. The GTX 560 Ti CoolStream OC Edition is almost inaudible during operation too. In our case, intensive 3D resulted in GPU temperature of about 79°C, but it’s a pretty good balance between thermals and noise levels since the fan was inaudible throughout.
