Firstly, the redesigned PCB comes with a three-phase power design instead of the two-phase version found on the reference that may lead to higher overclocks and better stability. However, there may be slight differences in store pricing or inventory compared to what is listed online. Take a photo even and post it here. And next to that, as this review will show.. Every now and then however there are some companies out there releasing a product completely passively cooled. Had it installed and running in less than 15 min. If, so please take a few moments to write your rating and review.

Affordable Ruggard Graphics Card I ordered this card like 3 years ago and the thing is still kickn. I have yet to find a game it cant play yet. If you need help finding the sarkle connector try looking at google images for a 6-pin molex.

Now you are saying that “it” mentions a 6 pin connector being sparkld. The Pc is for website design, everyday use as well as gaming.

I retried twice more and the power dropped out in even less time on both occasions overheating something perhaps? I’ll try n get a phot up as soon as poss but am at work now so cant do it at 9600gy mo.

Does it say that on the graphics card box? Differing opinions on this, but I reckon you should have more air blowing out than what is 96000gt in. 900gt running it with the case side cover off and place a small pedestal fan to blow into the case. It ran ok for about an hour then the power just cut out, just leaving the power light flashing, and the machine refused to turn back on again.


Did they test it using the same setup as you do at home?

Sparkle GeForce 9600 GT Passive Cooler Review

Thinking it might be a power supply problem I swapped it w for another one I had in the house w and the problem occurred again.

GeForce GT Passively cooled. If you don’t have one you can get converters. Like the Palit before, the Sparkle has a slightly redesigned PCB and a mixture of solid and non-solid capacitors. Eparkle it doesn’t give me any trouble it would seem to be that the system is having trouble sending to 2 TV’s which would make me think it’s either the PSU or something I’m missing in the software settings.

Granted it’s a bit of a trade off, as when you passively cool a product you’ll need good ventilation in your PC, adding noise again.

It makes gaming a whole new experience for me. I’ve taken it back for more testing as last time i took it in they only tested with one display, so it’s now being tested with two displays in the shop. What is “it” in this instance? Cheers for all your help guys. Not redeemable for cash. Have an opinion on this product that you would like to share?

Whether it will take off ultimately is uncertain at this early stage but Palit has ensured that this Sonic will be a future proof card with its three different forms of output.

I’ve labelled the only thing that looks like a connector. TigerDirect Business is not responsible for typographical or photographic errors. Given its passive cooler, we weren’t expecting any overclocking but Sparkle did bump up the core clock to MHz, but this 10MHz increment probably has little effect.

Please be thoughtful, detailed and courteous, and adhere to our posting rules. My Sparkle card didnt come with one of those cables and I’m wondering if that’s the problem. Combine that with the rumored GPU core temperatures of Degrees C I pretty much stereotyped the product even before we had tested it.

Works good with Vista bit. I’ve checked and double checked and there’s no power connector on this card, the only connector on the whole card is the one to link it to a second device.
