[Techpowerup.com] GIGABYTE GTX 680 SuperOverclock WindForce 5X Pictured Some More

Unveiled earlier this month, GIGABYTE's GeForce GTX 680 SuperOverclock has been an attention magnet thanks to its WindForce 5X cooling solution, which you'll either love or hate. Coolaler.com got to spend some time with this card, more importantly, to dissemble it. The cooler is found to occupy 3 expansion slots in your system, which isn't exactly new, no thanks to ASUS and its DirectCu II solution. The entire volume of card's cooling area is occupied by a gigantic heatsink.

At the base of WindForce 5X cooling solution is a vapor-chamber plate, which draws heat from the GPU and memory chips. This plate makes contact with five 8 mm-thick copper heat-pipes. These pipes pass through the gargantuan heatsink in a closed loop. There are five 40 mm fans arranged on top of the card to ventilate the heatsink. These fans occupy extra space on the top-side of the card, since as we mentioned, almost the entire volume of the cooler's space is occupied by the heatsink. The back side of the card was also shown, fitted with a back-plate, with as many as four NEC Tokin proadlizers peeking out of a cutout. Other components on the back side are hard to make out.
