Gigabyte SilentPipe 6600GT in my SN95G5 - Pics Galore!

Postposted on Sat Apr 16, 2005 7:58 am

Hey guys! Just upgraded (AGAIN!) to a SN95G5 V2. I decided to purchase the Gigabyte SilentPipe GVN66128VP AGP card.

First, the juicy stuff. The card runs at 64C Idle, and get's up to 85C under load. EDIT! I loaded the latest Gigabyte BIOS, and now the load temps are 75C max and 64C idle. I played a 2 hour session of UT2K4 last night (on the TR UT2K4 Server!), and it reached 85C. Not bad for a silent card stuffed inside a little XPC ;) Oh and forget about the PCI slot, it gets blocked!

The one heatpipe barely touches the end of my Samsung DVD-RW drive, but it does not effect performance.

Stock 3DMark05 Score is 3476. Compare Link

On to the pics!

The Card

Top of Card, so you get an idea of how large the heatsink is.

Next is a series of pics from different angles so you get an idea of how it looks inside the box.

Looks good. I put a MSI into my shuttle. However I need to modify the BIOS (hex edit) in order for the temp display to work. I have yet to get around to it. I'm sure using the Silent Pipe drops the noise a lot.

Oh yeah, it's really amazing home quiet this is (this XPC is quietest I have owned, by far). Of course it will be a little louder if I decide to do a blow hole, but the temps are reasonable so I may not have to :)

It's a thing of beauty!

B.T.W.....my GPU's hang out around 84-84C while gaming......with the noise of their fans, and NOT crammed into a Shuttle sized case. I'm a little envious. :wink:

Yeah but you are running 6800GT's. I assume they are hotter than 6600GT's. Right?

Yea, I would think a bit warmer. :D

Still, I'm impressed.

I am really liking the 6600GT. I can't believe how well it runs Doom 3. I can easily run Ultra Mode at 1280 res at close the 60 FPS all the time.
