Inno3D iChill GTX 760 Video Card Review

Videocards/VGA Reviews by stefan @ 2013-07-08

The iChill GTX 760 implementation from inno3D comes with a well-build cooling system with 3 fans and pre-overclocked from the factory and succeeds to come very close to the non-GHz Edition version of the Radeon HD 7970. Besides that, for added value we also get a nice cloth pad inside the box that we can use at LAN parties or at home along with a high-performance gaming mouse.

An even Closer Look

To get more details on the cooling system and the top side of the PCB, we will have to disassemble the card; the first step we will take is to remove the four screws with springs which keep the plate fixed onto the GPU:




From the GPU plate we can see traveling 5 heatpipes to the top heatsink; also, on the each side of the plate we will find black rubber washers:





By removing the heatsink, we will be also able to take a look on the frontal side of the PCB, which is initially covered by another metallic black plate:




The card PCB is sandwiched between the two metallic plates, so it won’t bend due to excessive weight. The black plate also comes with the thermal pads which cover the memory modules and the VRM components:




The GPU is surrounded with 8 GDDR5 memory ICs with the model number H5GQ2H24AFR-R0C and are rated at 1500MHz:





On the right side of the card we have the VRM circuitry:




Here is also a closer look at the GK104 graphics processor:




On the back side of the PCB there are no more memory ICs, but we could spot a Richtek RT8802A voltage controller, on a small separate PCB:
