ASUS Extreme N6600GT Silencer

2. A Closer Look

- Architecture

The ASUS N6600GT Silencer is a fanless graphics card, employing a large heatsink (occupying the largest part of the front surface of the card), and a single heatpipe that helps with heat dissipation, transferring the heat to the heatsink and fins.

The cooling mechanism in detail...

The graphics card is now a little bit bigger than in the previous versions of the 6600, though this will not cause any problems with installations, since the heatpipe can be rotated 90° and positioned in one of two ways, so that it fits every user's situation.

90° rotation is an option, to avoid any mechanical interference...

Having rotated the Heatpipe, we took a photo of the rotation mechanism...

- The card itself

As discussed above, the card is a normal sized one, with the exception of the cooling system, which is necessary in order to achieve maximum performance, with no noise and low temperatures.

The heatsink is of copper construction, as expected, in order to maximize heat dissipation and performance... one can clearly discern in the photo below, the ASUS logo in the middle of the heatsink..

The red stylish heatsink of the Silencer...

Nothing fancy on the back side of the card, with the two copper covers, protecting the memory modules from overheating.

The output signals are the usual Standard 15-pin D-sub, HDTV-out and DVI-I output.

Dual DVI-I output and a single D-sub found on the card's rear

As we've seen in this page, the ASUS N6600GT Silencer, is all about silence and heat dissipation. Do not expect to see the beast-like 6800Ultra performance or anything that "heavy duty" though. Let's move on to the next page and have a look at the test system and on to the tests themselves.
