Sparkle Announces GeForce GTX 470, GTX 465 Graphics Cards with Own Design Cooler

Sparkle Computer announced a pair of new graphics cards based on the GeForce GTX 470 and GeForce GTX 465 graphics processors, and sporting Sparkle's own design as far as the cooler goes. The SXX4701280D5-NM (GTX 470) and SXX4651024D5-NM (GTX 465) feature a GPU cooler that makes use of a dense aluminum fin array to which heat is conveyed by five copper heat pipes, and cooled by an 80 mm fan. With this cooler, Sparkle claims to have brought down temperatures by 4 °C on the GTX 470, and 5 °C on the GTX 465. Both cards retain NVIDIA's reference design PCB, except for that it is blue in color. Both models stick to reference NVIDIA clock speeds and other specifications. Sparkle did not give out a price, though one can expect these to be priced just a little over the reference design cards.

i would kick off the shroud,rip off the fan, and use 2x 120mm fans instead, would look better, and drop the temps even more severely! :D

Kind of reminds me of the old Soyo dragon boards. Or maybe the old KT600 gigabyte boards with the green and purple.

EDIT: I don't know why it remind me of those mb's..lol other than the purple.. but that's the first thing i thought of... hehehe

Good God Sparkle; its either Win or Facepalm with you. This time it's facepalm. This could be a candidate for Ugliest VGA of the Year.
