GALAXY GeForce 6600 AGP bears Zalman VF700 cooler
The South Korean Zalman Tech, specializing in PC cooling, is popular among vendors as well. For example, Sapphire Technologies has been installing heat-piped ZM80x-HP onto its top "Ultimate Edition" cards for a long time. So, Zalman´s updated product range couldn´t be missed by graphics card vendors.
GALAXY Technology was one of the first to announce its GALAXY GeForce 6600 AGP with a new VF700 cooler made purely of aluminium fins (and thus outstanding from Zalman´s VF700-Cu, VF700-ALCu models). As end users lose nothing because of the absence of such hypothetical and potentially cheaper type of VF700-Al for sale, companies purchasing such products from the manufacturer are to save much on the more expensive copper. Besides, it suits the moderate heat emission of 110nm NV43 core well enough.
The aforementioned GALAXY GeForce 6600 AGP has an D-Sub connector instead of the second DVI-I. It also features 128 MB DDR, 300/550 MHz clock rate and AGP 8x interface. Eight TSOP chips from Hynix are rotated by 45° (redesigned due to HSI bridge), and the four of them on the back side are not cooled anyhow:
The card turns out to be rather high: 30mm of VF700 and several millimeters of GeForce 6600 GPU not only occupy the closest slot, but also make it harder to install something into the next as well.
Providing the good noise/performance ratio this novelty costs about $170.
