The cooler shroud is made entirely of plastic, which contributes to the cards lower weight. Two metal decals suggest higher-quality materials, though. The fan design carries over from previous Jetstream cards. A big 92 mm fan sits in the middle, flanked by two 80 mm blowers that are bigger than any on the Gigabyte card.

Palit equips the Jetstream with one eight- and one six-pin power connector. The gap between the two indicates the company may originally have had other plans.

Two 8 mm and three 6 mm nickel-plated pipes made of sintered material draw heat away from the GPU and into the bifid sink. RAM and VRMs receive their own cooling courtesy of a massive frame that gets sufficient air flow and helps stabilize the PCB.

Palit‘s GTX 770 OC Jetstream also carries the same complement of connectors as Nvidia’s reference card.
