Good 3D Performance at a Middling Price: GeForce 6600 Shootout

Albatron Trinity PC6600U

Albatron designed a very unusual GeForce 6600 (Standard) card in the PC6600U. First, the generously-sized cooling solution catches your eye with its red and copper-colored cooling elements contrasting sharply with the blue circuit board. The passive heatsink on the front of the card, already very generous in size, passes the waste heat via two heat pipes to another very large heatsink where an additional fan is located - the word "oversized" hardly describes it.

The PC6600U features a very massive and complex cooling solution.
