ASUS GTX560 TOP Review
Published: 17th May 2011 | Source: ASUS | Price: |
The packaging of the ASUS GTX560 TOP follows the normal ASUS style of a large fantasy Knight adorning the box, with the sturdy black box lurking within. Accessories are standard fare with a driver disk, molex to PCI-E converters, a DVI to VGA converter and a mini-HDMI adaptor.
The card itself is gorgeous. A black PCB holds the Direct CU II cooler which has two PWM fans and some serious heat-pipes. With the black coating and red stripes it should certainly match most peoples internals.
The metal support on the PCB gives the card a tremendous sense of solidity, only aided by the sturdy nature of the cooler itself. It's also good to see that even this TOP variant still only requires two PCI-E 6pin connectors.
Even with such a large heat-sink and fan combination the GTX560 TOP remains a dual-slot cooler. Connectivity is provided by two DVI ports and a mini-HDMI.
