Inno3D GeForce GTX 480 iChill Black Series FurMarked



Inno3D GeForce GTX 480 iChill Black Series



Inno3D‘s new GeForce GTX 480 is equipped with a water cooling block designed by Bitspower.

This GTX 480 comes with an overclocked GPU (+20MHz then +40MHz for the shaders since both clocks are linked) and memory (+26MHz):
– GPU: GF100 @ 720MHz
– Shader cores: 480 @ 1440MHz
– Memory: 1536MB GDDR5 @ 950MHz (or 3800MHz effective)

See HERE for the specs of the reference GTX 480.

The question: what are the performances of this water block when the GPU is highly stressed ?

Guru3D brings us the the answer with FurMark:
– idle mode: 31°C
– stress mode with FurMark (during 30 min): 57°C

57°C is around 40°C in less since with the stock VGA cooler, the same GPU reaches 95°C when it’s tortured by our furry donut :D

FurMark approved - FurMark proof

We have to note that the GPU temperature with the water block can vary according to the liquid cooling.

Here is the temperatue monitoring of MSI Afterburner:
