ASUS EN9600GT TOP Video Card Review

The GeForce 9600 GT has been on the market for some time now and prices seem to keep dropping. The ASUS EN9600GT series feature a 10% core clock frequency boost and improved cooling for those looking to push the limits of their graphics. The ASUS EN9600GT Series uses the Glaciator Fansink, which reduces temperatures and is ultra quiet with operating levels of only 25dB. If your budget doesn't allow you to get a $229 GeForce 9800 GTX+ then check out this card as it's $100 less at $129 after rebate.

The Asus 9600 GT TOP edition is obviously not the fastest card in NVIDIA’s line up but that is not the goal here. As of this writing, the Asus 9600 GT is selling for $129 after a $20 Mail-in-rebate, which is an astounding value! You get a card with a great cooling, low-noise heat sink, and an overclocked card for the same price as a reference model. Though the performance differences weren’t that large compared to the reference card the heat sink easily makes this card the, forgive the pun, TOPS in its class.

About those glaciator coolers that Asus place in their special editions, they cool better the GPU area, but aren't the original slots coolers better for the overall cooling of the entire card? Or the only thing that needs a fan is the GPU itself?
