Inno3D Freezer X2 DHT GeForce GTX 260 Pictured

Based on the new inexpensive P897 PCB, the Freezer X2 DHT series GeForce GTX 260 will be the first graphics card by the company based on a non-reference GTX 200 series design. The card was first pictured with only its green PCB exposed, possibly because the cooler design was being finalized or embargoed (read here). By the looks of it, NVIDIA seems to have made things easy for its partners by issuing a base-design kit that allows partners to rearrange components, in a way they see fit. This helps partners use the cooling mechanism of their choice.

With the Freezer X2 DHT, Inno3D chose a modularised cooling system that consists of a large GPU cooler, heatspreaders over the memory chips, heatsinks over the NVIO2 processor and the card's VRM area, with the GPU cooler providing air-flow for these component heatsinks. The GPU cooler uses the Direct Heatpipe-Touch (DHT) technology, where the GPU contact-block has three heatpipes making direct contact with the GPU. These heatpipes convey heat to an aluminum fin array, which is subjected to air-flow by two equally-sized fans. One can expect this card to be launched during the CeBIT event.

Who cares, its the company that gets the score. Inno3D has been an awesome company with their NVIDIA cards. Good quality, always.

Same size as a normal PCB, the cooler hangs off though.

Cards that dump their heat into the case instead of exhausting it out the back are a bad idea. I have stock Palit 4870 and although I love it, it dumps some serious heat on top of my sound card and into my case. These new cards sure do get hot and I have had a lot of heat issues. Not quite sure what folks do with this heat. I have 1- 80mm and one 60-mm fan sucking it out and that barely helps. I also use Riva Tuner to crank the fan speed of the card because its jut basically blowing back on itself because of its proximity to the sound card (like 1mm!)
