Gigabyte GTX 680 SOC (Windforce 5X)

This card was Revealed back at Gigabyte’s Tech Tour 2012. The GTX 680 Super Overclock features the Windforce 5X cooler which has been pictured once again. These new set of pictures clearly show the interior of the massive Windforce 5X cooler and some key features of the PCB. The Windforce 5X cooling design features a large densely packed aluminum heatsink  which nine 6mm heatpipes run through it. Total cooling capacity of the heatsink is around 500W which makes it worth for extreme overclockers. To cool it all Gigabyte has added five 40mm fans, though not a good move since the fans rather than blowing air out are located in the central chamber hence blowing hot air at the other PC components. The base plate is copper plated and covers the GPU core and memory chips. Power is provided through 8 + 6 pin connectors.
