Palit Shows Off GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Light Turbo Graphics Card

Palit unveiled a new limited-edition GeForce GTX 560 Ti based non-reference design graphics card, the Palit GTX 560 Ti Twin Light Turbo. The card's design is based on a black colored PCB (Palit uses a red-colored one on its regular GTX 560 Ti cards), and a unique GPU Cooler design. The heatsink follows essentially the same structure as the one featured on Gainward Phantom cards, in which heat is conveyed to the aluminum fin stack by four heat pipes, but the fans that ventilate the card are located on the side of the heatsink facing the PCB, rather than on top of it. The fans draw in air from the heatsink. Palit claims that the cooler has a noise output of less than 10 dBA.

The clock speeds of the card are not given out, yet. Like every other GTX 560 Ti, this card makes use of a 40 nm GeForce Fermi 114 GPU, is DirectX 11 compliant, packs 384 CUDA cores, and makes use of 1 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 256-bit wide memory interface. Display outputs include two DVI, and one each of D-Sub and HDMI (full-size). There is one SLI connector that allows 2-way SLI with any other GTX 560 Ti card, and power is drawn in from two 6-pin PCIe power connectors. Availability and pricing information is not known at the moment.

Very nice looking card, i agree with Animalpak it's nice to see another card with the fans between the heatsink and card.

Does it work any better to have them this way?

I think,as long as the fans has enough clearance to sucks air in,it will be as good as the opposite.But it doesn't cools off the components on the pcb though.

sucking air is far less efficient than pushing air, it also creates a lot of "dead spots". this is why the best heatsinks have fans blowing through it, and not pulling through it. I do not see how this method is any better than the traditional, if not worse.

Personally i was referring more to the looks, i like the fans under the heatsink because of that, as far as performance vs fans on the outside i honestly can't say what the difference would be but with such a big heatsink with so many heat pipes i doubt them being on that side would be much of an issue.

I think it is less efficient from a cooling perspective but more efficient from a noise perspective. Since the 560 Ti is happy being cooled with just one fan, then this double fan arrangement is enough for cooling, albeit now quieter.

How does it work out to be cooler? Well fans mounted on the heatsink push a lot of air that spills and causes wind resistance/turbulence on the face of the fins and the card. I guess 50% of the air pushed by the fans is bounced rather than actually making it through the fin cooling structure. This makes noise.

In this setup, the only air that moves is the air that made it through the fins and therefore there will be a lot less noise due to turbulence.

This will be a winner for noise. It might not OC as high though. But if you run at stock, this will be a better setup IMO.

fans behind fins is nice, and you could make it push pull configuration with adding more fans
cool

I like the design but not the brand.

Looks nice but axial fans choke when something is near its intake side.

Try running a fan and put your fingers near the intake and the airflow would be greatly reduced.
