Released June, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Stays cool when idle, doesn't need extra cooling when not pushing it. Fan never gets very loud even when under a heavier load. Very stable, rarely if ever experience any glitches.

The Cons:Takes a lot of power to run, have to make sure your power supply can handle it. Uses up a lot of room in the case, need a large case to house it.

One of the cards maintains the stock 602MHz/2214MHz timings while the other two are overclocked, sharing the same enhanced RAM speed.
