Among the two graphics cards offered by Palit, we find the KalmX version, a so-called passive model. As you can see, this card has no fans at all. Cooling is provided by a simple block of aluminum fins with copper heat pipes running through them.
This is quite the opposite of the StormX model, which comes with an active cooling system. The latter features a single fan that blows over a simple aluminum block with machined fins.
Apart from their respective cooling systems, the boards are rather compact, occupying just two slots in a PC case. The PCB length is limited to 170 mm.
We’ll have to make do with the boost of the reference card with the passive model. The StormX version is available in an overclocked factory model with a frequency of 1492 MHz.
