Gainward GeForce 4 PowerPack GS Ultra/750XP Video

Gainward GeForce 4 PowerPack GS Ultra/750XP Video - PCSTATS
Abstract: For example, what does 750XP really stand for? Does it imply that the memory can run up to 750MHz...

GPU and BGA Memory Cooling

The GPU cooler is a modified version of standard nVidia GPU HSF. The actual fan of the GPU cooler is actually quite loud, in fact it's louder then my Swiftech MC462A's stock 53CFM Sanyo Denki fan! While the sound doesn't bother me, it's bound to bother some people especially the ones who want a "quiet" computer. The cover of the GPU heatsink/fan forces the air through the fins of the heatsink which in turn also blows across the BGA memory. In the case of Gainward, they've taken the extra step and added ramsinks onto their memory.

Gainward uses some rather fancy ramsinks on the top side of the card to cool down the memory however on the other side of the card, the ramsinks are rather bland. They're quite small and don't really have much surface area. It looks more like a better then nothing approach. During testing the larger ramsinks stayed quite cool however the ones on the back of the card were often quite warm to the touch even at stock speeds!
