For testing I will use Sparkle Calibre X265 and the Nvidia cooler from MSI GTX260-oc edition.Also the cooler will be tested with MSI GTX-580,which has the Twin Frozr 2 cooler. The MSI GTX260 card has the stock Nvidia reference slot cooler and the Calibre a custom cooler with 4 direct touching heatpipes and 2 fans. This will show you the clear advantage of the Accelero Xtreme Plus against both the stock cooler and a better one!


Temperature readings were taken using OCCT in order to stress the card with a room temperature of 25 degrees and good airflow for the vga card.Noise levels were recorded from a distance of 20cm from the card with a high sensitivity digital SPL meter.


The heat produced from this card is :

Sparkle Calibre X265 has 236w TDP, the same as GTX280 cards, and GTX580 has 244w TDP.
