ASUS Extreme N6600GT Silencer

15. Conclusion

Another middle line performance card has been introduced into the market by ASUS, the N6600GT Silencer. A standard PCI-E interface, SLI enabled card, the Silencer is sure to please the end user who is looking for good performance and low noise (no noise to be exact), from a graphics card.

As can be seen from the tests carried out in this review, the main difference between the Silencer and the standard N6600GT model is first and foremost, the fanless design, and secondly the memory modules, with the Silencer having 256MB of DD3 while the N6600GT standard has 128MB of DD3.

The Heatsink and pipeline and fins system will keep the graphics cards temperatures at acceptable levels and even lower than those of the standard N6600GT, even during overclocking. The card will not overclock to extreme levels, but will give out five more frames max, as we showed in the previous pages with the tested OC games.

A slight drawback would be the size of the fins-pipeline assembly, but ASUS has foreseen this and solved any issues by enabling it to rotate 90°, so that installation in any system is easy. Simple as that.

The ASUS N6600GT Silencer retail package is what we usually expect for an ASUS retail box, excellent, containing everything required, including a bundle variety that will not disappoint, with the addition of three of the latest games in full editions. Stylish and extremely practical, the retail box and bundled software is surely a plus for the Silencer graphics card.

At the time of this review, a price had not yet been announced for the ASUS N6600GT Silencer.

Pros:
- Good performance for a 6600
- Low temperature
- No noise
- Great bundle

Cons:
-
