ECS uses Arctic Cooling for 8800 GT

ECS has released a new non-reference cooled addition to its 8800 GT lineup, branded Geforce 8800 GT Dual Turbo. ECS has decided to go for Arctic Cooling's Accelero S1, four heatpipe passive solution in combination with AC's Turbo module.

The ECS Dual Turbo version has Arctic Cooling's Turbo module, which is a dual fan option that fits on AC's S1 or S2 passive cooling solutions. Arctic Cooling's Turbo module is actually two high performance 80mm fans that spin at 1500RPM and produce 42CFM's of airflow. According to the ECS press release, when tested under 3DMark05, Nvidia's reference cooling heats up to 91 C. When cooled with just Accelero S1, the temperature falls down to 73 C and with the Turbo module the temperature goes even lower, to 64 C.

The press release didn't include specifications of the card, so we must presume that it will work at reference clocks, which doesn't mean that there will be no headroom for additional overclocking. Unfortunately, the availability and price hasn't been announced, but this looks like a good cooling solution since you can choose between completely silent and Turbo module dual fan cooled option.
