The cooler features a massive square plate with heatpipes that cools down the core. Its second part is a plastic cover with a large, slow and quiet fan. The cooler is even bigger than the PCB itself. As you can see, memory chips are not cooled down, but power circuitry is supplied with heatsinks.

Lantic NGTX460D5-1G2DH

This cooler has the heatsink elevated above the base, as if standing on the heatpipes. There are also two large, slow and very quiet fans. This cooler isn't long, but quite high, occupying three slots.

Leadtek WinFast GTX 460 1GB

This cooler reminds of the reference one. It has smaller heatsink compared with ASUS's. This solution is also quiet, though you can hear some noise under heavy load.

Leadtek WinFast GTX 460 EXTREME

This cooler is identical to the previous, just the metallic parts, heatsink included, are made of copper to improve efficiency, because this card is considerably overclocked.

Manli GeForce GTX460OC

This cooler is identical to the Lantic's.

Traditionally, we monitored temperatures using EVGA Precision (based on RivaTuner).

Manli GeForce GTX460OC

We expected high efficiency from the models from Lantic and Manli, but the 50°C at 800 MHz of the latter was just phenomenal. These coolers are highly efficient. Other coolers did a great job as well, temperatures not exceeding 71°C.
