A Closer Look
This card is based on the reference design PCB with modifications to the components by Inno3D to give it the best possible performance. The cooling design is very striking and for the fans that like to take things apart; this cooling design is modular.
Inno3D has included the iChill backplate to add strength, style and cooling to the rear components.
The cooling solution is very large, hanging over the end of the card by around 1 inch. The heatsink is left exposed here to aid in heat dissipation.
Looking down on top of the card, there is no PCB strengthening bracket that we are used to seeing on such long cards, but the backplate takes the brunt of the weight. There is a 1x 8 pin and 1x 6 pin PCIe power connections and 2 SLI fingers for multi-card SLI set-ups.
At the business end of the card, there is 1x DVi connector, 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMi.
