Inno3D GeForce 8800 GT iChill Edition

Inno3D began its iChill series with the GeForce 7x series of video cards.  The premise was quite simple, couple factory overclocked video cards with quality aftermarket GPU coolers.  No point reinventing the cooling wheel right?  If ever there was a card that screamed for better cooling it was the GeForce 8800 GT.  The GeForce 8800 GT was designed to be a single slot solution in reference trim.  Now that the card has been out for a while it is clear that the single slot cooler is "adequate" at best.

The Inno3D factory overclocked card remains the highest clocked 8800 GT on the market with 700MHz on the core and 2000MHz GDDR3 memory.  This is up from the reference specs of 600MHz / 1800MHz for the 8800 GT.  The reference cooler that came on the card had the GPU of our test sample Inno3D 8800 GT OC running at a blistering 76 degrees Celsius.  That's 169 degrees to all us yanks.

The Inno3D 8800 GT iChill card takes Inno3D's super-clocked GeForce and gives it the cooling it needs.  We strapped a Thermaltake DuOrb on an 8800 GT and got some impressive results.  Let's see how Inno3D does with an Arctic Cooling Accelero X1 cooler.  Since this is an 'whole package' we are going over the card itself briefly a bit first.
