    Inno3D released the non-reference design GeForce GTX 470 Hawk graphics card. The card is characterized by the large iChill heatsink which uses a large aluminum fin array that's cooled by three fans. Despite its proportions, the company claims the cooler's noise level to be only around 18 - 29 dBA (max), compared to the up to 38 dBA of the reference cooler. As far as performance goes, Inno3D claims the cooler keeps temperatures up to 22 °C lower than what the reference cooler manages, around the 70 °C mark on load.

    Apart from the cooler, the Inno3D GTX 470 Hawk uses a fairly standard NVIDIA reference design PCB that is green in color, and comes with reference clock speeds of 608/1215/837 MHz (core/shader/memory). Like any other GTX 470, the card has 448 CUDA cores, and 1280 MB of GDDR5 memory installed on a 320-bit wide memory interface.

    Why "Hawk" and not "iChill"?

    I really hate this iGarbage marketing scheme. Why do they feel compelled to add an "i" before every damn thing? It's getting annoying.

    No, 70C on load is pretty darn good on that card.

    fermi is a furnace, so yeah... 70C is actually pretty good.

    note how they say its 22C lower than the reference cooler...

    yeah oke
    but i'm used to lover temps with other aftermarketcoolers
    mij gtx 275 does 78C with stock, now it does 52C (by software) 45C by chip with an thermalright hr-03-gtx + 12 cmfan @ ~1200rpm

    I like those temps far better dan ~70C

    That 92 degree was probably from a burntest like furmark or kombustor. 70 degrees in burntest on air is quite good imo. On real world games, it would be much lower, I estimate less than 15 - 20 degrees from that 70.

    Thats a GTX 275, how can you compare it to the power hungry hot Fermi cards? 70c is a good load temp, you wont be getting anywhere near 50c with any aftermarket air cooler on the current Fermi lienup

    iThink that 70°C @ load is sweet for that card.
    If only the 5870s would drop about $200, as iReally would rather have one of those.

    Is it me or is somethin' wrong there. Most fans suck from under so that'll put the lighted logo upside down.
