Inno3D GTX 470 iChill Arctic Cooling Tested with FurMark
Expreview has tested Inno3D‘s GTX 470 iChill cooled by an Arctic Cooling VGA cooler. According to Inno3D, the GPU temperature in full stress mode is 20°C below the reference GTX 470 card. To verify this statement, FurMark has been used to fully load the GPU.
Here are the clocks of this GTX 470:
– GPU: 630MHz (ref=607MHz)
– Shader: 1260MHz (ref=1215MHz)
– Memory speed: 850MHz real speed or 1700 DDR speed. Ref=837MHz real speed.
As you can see, this GTX 470 is pre-overclocked.
Inno3D GTX 470 iChill Arctic Cooling – Default clocks (GPU=630MHz, mem=850MHz) – Stressed by FurMark – GPU Temp: 66°C
Inno3D GTX 470 iChill Arctic Cooling – Overclocked (GPU=750MHz, mem=900MHz) – Stressed by FurMark – GPU Temp: 69°C
GTX 470 with reference VGA cooler – Same clocks than Inno3D’s GTX 470 – Stressed by FurMark – GPU Temp: 92°C
With default clocks (pre-overclocked) the GPU temp does not excedd 66°C. And with overclocked settings (GPU=750MHz, mem=900MHz), the GPU reaches 69°C. These temperature are really nice! So even with overclocked settings, the GPU temperature is more than 20° below the ref GTX 470.
