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!
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.
