Hey, they have the test result on the product page:


GELID Solutions > Products

27C lower than GTX480 at full load
Overclock to 800/975/1600-- the temp is just 72C at full load while the stock cooler is 91C

The chart also has a hyper link to the detail test of the this HSF...cool!!

I found some non-Gelid stats (no offense Gelid, but I make a habit of never trusting a company's own testing of their own products!)
