Looks good. I think "extreme silence" would be my preferred option. I wonder if those temps ("cooling performance") are in silent mode, or in extreme cooling mode? Did they mix and match statistics, I wonder? It looks like that is an Arctic Accelero Extreme cooler...

Anyone got any experience using this cooler on a GTS260/280?

(Typo in http://www.techpowerup.com/img/09-02-19/ichillgtx260190209.jpg where they say 6 pipes, but the other picture clearly shows 5 and the regular arctic is 5 pipes, unless they have a "special 6 pipe edition" for this card).

What's noise level 1.1 or 0.7? How much is that translated to dB?

Didnt notice that typo, but it is there imagery, so I cant change it unfortunately.

And the cooler they are using isnt out yet, it should be available in March, I cant wait for it, lol.

Arctic Cooling do not measure in dB, that table is translated form their Sone measurements.
if anyone wants more information on the cooler, you can find it here:

Yes, I looked at the Arctic site too. Seems like Arctic are showing BETTER statistics than Inno3D. I guess that is due to factory overclock.

78°C - 58°C = 20°C not 30°C

I find their collection of mismatched statistics rather confusing and untrustworthy. Great product. Show inconsistent statistics. Lose trust. (Even if it is a good card, i you market it with typos or misrepresent or mismatch information, you shoot yourself in the foot).

could be due to thermal paste... maybe inno3d is using peanut butter.

hah, lol. Just seen that. They either mean 30mm depth by 90mm width fans. Or they have made quite a few mistakes on this. :rolleyes:

Xtreme silence is when you take silence, you multiply it by a cubed negative zero and then you divide the result by the square root of ten times infinite. Formula:
