GTX480 ready for LN2

GTX480 ready for LN2

The Fermi release is just a couple of days away and more pictures of the card are posted on the internet. Most of them are either pictures of the stock cooling (read: different sticker) or of the card naked, but this one picture caught my attention …

Posted on the forums, Monstru of the Romanian hardware website, shows that it’s possible to mount the Tek9 on the GTX480 with the same mounting gear already available. This means that in the contrary to the previous generation of Geforce cards (GTX 2×0), your LN2 pot should be ready to handle the GTX 480 at the day of the launch.

Whether or not it’s capable of withstanding the heat load is a different question.

Good to know that I don't have to order a new mounting kit. Nothing is more frustrating than finding out you have to postpone benching because of a mounting misfit.

TiN says:

True benchers never postpone cz misfit, they drill teh cards and mount! :D
