Inno3D IChill GeForce GTX 470 First Review

Inno3D GTX 470 IChill arrived at our testing studio a few days ago. We had immediately made a box-opening video to satisfy everybody’s craving. Inno3D claims that its temperature of full-loaded is 20℃ below the reference card. Now, we are going to verify this statement.

Inno3D GTX470 IChill Briefing

Inno3D GTX 470 IChill is an overclocking version of graphic card with default clocks of 630/1700/1260MHz(core/memory/shader), which are respectively 23/36/45MHz higher than that of reference card.

After all, GTX 470 IChill is in fact the reference GTX 470 with renewed cooler, its material used and design are hence not provided in details. Pleaseclick here for more details.

The design of cooler is quite similar to Arctic-cooling’s Accelero XTREME GTX Pro. In allusion to Accelero XTREME GTX Pro being too long (29cm) resulting in incompatibility with most crates, Inno3D’s GTX470 IChill has a shorter overall length of 26cm with 8cm fans at both ends.

The cooler occupies approximately 3 PCI slots, which appears to be quite slim compared to an occupation of 5 PCI slots of Prolimatech MK-13 (with fans).

The cooler has dimensions of 260*114*53mm and an overall weight of 561g (with fans), which is considerably light and handy compared to Prolimatech MK-13’s 555g and Thermalright Spitfire’s 550g (both with no fans).

The pure copper bottom case adopts the disk milling process and has 4 rubber pads for cushioning pressure. The 3 fans use two ball bearing and support PWM function.

The fin’s gap distance is approximately 1.8mm, its thickness is about 0.4mm and depth is 2.2cm. These three parameters are moderate. Winds can still blow through fins under low wind pressure. Cooling area reaches 4000cm2 (Prolimatech MK-13 cooling area is approximately 3400cm2).

Five heat pipes connect to numerous fins through fin penetration. Fins are placed separately in two ends. Interestingly, the end with more fins has only got two heat pipes while the end with fewer fins gets three. The fins at both ends are narrower than those in the middle, so it is not necessary to reduce fin width although 8cm fans are used at both ends.

The second part of the cooler is the metal base plate. It is similar to the reference but smaller area. The Integrated metal plate is helpful for reducing PCB and power feeding temperature. There are two rubber pads under the plate to prevent GPU from being crushed during any collisions.

    all them fans and metal fins for one GPU? I expect to see something like that on a 5970

  2. Dynamic Says:

    Yeah, me too.

  3. George Says:

    Yeah would be nice seeing that on a 5970. Anyway, is it possible to put these in SLI, because I haven’t seen a SLI-bridge that can bridge a gap of 3 slots. So how would that be possible?

    But damn that thing is huge, nice review too =). Is this by the way the same cooler underneath the hood as the Arctic Cooling version or is it a totally different version? And what kind of cooling paste is being used by Inno3D, their own sticky standard nvidia goo or the MX-3/4?
