    Graphics card manufacturer Point of View is jumping the Arctic Cooling band wagon just like many other manufacturers did, by introducing the brand new POV GeForce 9800 GTX+ with 512MB of GDDR3 memory (R-VGA150900H+). The 55nm built GeForce 9800GTX+ is one of the great cards currently on the market, performing very well with the latest games and also offering an acceptable price tag. To get even more performance out of the graphics card Point of View has decided to team up with Arctic Cooling and start offering their cards with AC coolers that will help lower temperatures and even more. The Arctic cooled POV GeForce 9800 GTX+ comes clocked at 738MHz core, 1836MHz shader clock and 2200MHz memory clock. At the same time the card is up to 20% cooler and also makes less noise than the standard NVIDIA cooling system. The actual model used is Arctic Cooling Accelero TWIN TURBO with two ultra quiet 80mm fans, 4 heatpipes and 30 fins that together form a dual-slot cooling monster able to transfer up to 120W of heat. To make their card even better all-rounder, POV has decided to equip it with a dual-link DVI port, a HDMI port and a VGA port. For additional information, please click here.

    I know boxes and the imagery doesn't mean anything, but seriously, that Goblin is seriously uncool! Needs to be a lot more evil!

    well at least it has a sensible output scheme.

    One VGA, one DVI, one HDMI. With adaptors, you can get two of any output you require.

    too quick innocent!
    I've seen santas scarier than that goblin.

    You're right about the outputs Mussels, that's the other thing that stood out after the cooling solution. I think too much about aesthetics I swear. I'm going to criticize the colour PCB.

    However, I'm not impressed by the 9800s so what does it matter anyway...

    Am I the only one bothered by the cooler taking up 3 PCI slots?

    It's funny to me that AC makes the best rear venting coolers (like on the HIS IceQ), but this behemoth is what they offer to us in aftermarket cooler land.

    you have a point, it just seems that someone, somewhere decided that reat exhausting coolers are bad. the arctic silencers were a damned good line of coolers, and they've pretty much disappeared.

    I wouldn't be surprised if HIS own the rights to that specific design.

    You know, I hadn't considered that. Makes perfect sense since no one has anything remotely similar. :ohwell:
