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.

With the help of the GPU-Z 0.7.1 utility, we could extract lots of information regarding the video card clocks,memory type, pixel and texture fill rate and so on:



To extract even more information, we have used the AIDA64 utility:



Temperature tests:

For finding out the temperatures in both IDLE and Full Load with the fan set on Auto, we left the computer IDLE for about 25 minutes and then started monitoring with HWINFO64 and logged the values obtained while running Heaven 4.0 at 2560x1440 resolution for an additional 40 to 50 minutes, with details at Maximum and Tesselation set to Extreme. During this time, the ambient temperature was held steady at 27.5 degrees Celsius:




Noise measurements

Before measuring out the noise the video card was producing, we have first measured the noise inside the room the tests took place and we found out it was 30.9dBA (with everything turned off).

At all times, the sound meter was placed 20cm near the video card.
