As I said, the VGA cooler is the killer feature of this Radeon HD 6770.

Four 8-mm heatpipes are in direct contact with the GPU for an optimal heat dissipation. According to ASUS, this noiseless VGA cooler runs around 16% cooler than conventional passive cards. We’ll see that in our power conszmption and temperature test.

The HD 6770 requires an additional 6-pin power connector. The maximum power consumption of the whole board is then 150W. The TDP (which represent the maximal power consumption in real world applications like games) of the HD 6770 is 108W.

This passive DirectCU cooler is big and even Radeon HD 6970 or GeForce GTX 590 seem small cards:

The bundle is quite simple: one HDMI to DVI adaptor, one 6-pin extension power cable and CDROM with driver and utilities.

    im use XFX HD5770 with bios mod sapphire HD6770

    Why are these pictures so noisy feels like they have been rendered with a path tracing algorithm having convergence problems or not enough samples

    get rid of that stupid looking plastic cowling and add a scythe slipstream 700rpm fan and I’d dare say the cooler would work much better that 99c will kill that card real quick

  4. JEswe

    that card is not going to last just get a DirectCU II GTX 570 or sumthing along those lines it’s quiet even on 100% and is power full as hell.

    @JEswe yes but costs a butt load more I’d say this thing is made specially for HTPC cases take alook there’s no CF connector
