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

Review: CoolStream strikes again


Club3D GTX 560 CoolStream Edition is 21cm long, just like most other GTX 560 cards. It sports a high performance CoolStream series cooler with a large heatsink and two heatpipes.

CoolStream cooling comes with unique fan blade design, which should increase airflow while reducing noise. Although we didn’t find it to be the quietest GTX 560 we’ve tested thus far, GTX 560 CoolStream Edition is not exactly loud either. You will hear it but it won’t be very loud, not even under full load; the fan is an 83mm, Everflow model: T129215Su, 0.50AMP.

Club3D used its standard color scheme – a blue PCB and a black dual-slot cooler. The PCB has Nvidia’s logo on it, which suggests reference component placing scheme.

The memory is cooled by air from the fan only.The memory is placed on the GPU side of the PCB. The memory chips come from Samsung (model number K4G10325FE-HC04) and are specified to run at 1250MHz (5000 MHz GDDR5 effectively).

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.

GTX 560 comes with one SLI connector. This means you can combine up to two GTX 560 cards in SLI mode for improved performance or image quality settings. The card has two 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors.

Hot, expensive, underpowered. Why buy any NV card when AMD's cards at the same price point wipe the floor with them??

FIXED!
why buy hot,badly made,with stupid hoover coolers,underpe rforming,with bad drivers who need constant patching amd card,when you can buy cheaper NV and wipe any amd card in same price category?
560Ti>6870,570>6950 (and even ofter 560Ti),580>amd have no answer to this.

As usualy DANamd n00b failed.

@Drac with a lot anti-aliasing HD 6870 is better card then 560Ti, and uses less power and is cheaper, so your comment is worth shit...

I mean who play without anti-aliasing today?

But with a 560Ti or 6870 its a waste not to use it ofc

Ti or non ti doesnt matter, they both suck for the price.
6870 is 150€ (even hawk :O) and faster than 560 for 155€

A 560 Ti starts at 190€, but there is a faster 6950 1GB for around 190€ too, makes 560 Ti irrelevant too.
