Thermaltake TMG ND1 GeForce GPU Cooler

So How Does it Perform?

FutureMark’s 3DMark06 and Nvidia’s NTune utility was used to load the card and record the temperatures of the core of the graphics card respectively. 

I must admit these numbers really impressed me.  Clearly you can see here that the ND1 was a vast improvement over the stock cooler.  Any cooler that can take nine to fifteen degrees Celcius of both load and idle temperatures is a cooler that is worth my money. 

Not only is this card worlds better than the stock cooler, it is nearly silent.  I would place the ND1 noise-wise just a tad bit louder than Yate Loons.  Thermaltake states that the ND1 runs at 16 dBa, and for once I have to agree with this rating. 

Now ordinarily, this would have any hardcore overclocker drooling.  There is a lot of head room for overclocking.  Unfortunately, this card has never ever overclocked 1mhz on either core or memory without artifacting ever since I switched from watercooling.  I don’t know if I got a bum card or what, but this card does not like overclocking anymore.   

Time to wrap this up, and answer the question, “Was it worth it?”
