One of the first things that I noticed about the Zotac GeForce GTX 650 TI Boost, other than the deviation from the reference design was how short the card actually is, The Zotac GeForce GTX 650 TI Boost comes in at an overall length of just over 7.6 inches. This will fit well in quite a few of the LAN box cases that are on the market.
Zotac chose to move away from the standard reference design that other manufactures are using and instead went with the same heatsink and fan unit that they have used on other cards. The dual heatpipe heat sink is sure to keep the chip within operating parameters.
The Zotac GeForce GTX 650 uses a dual heat pipe design heatsink. The fans sit directly on top of the heatsink. The fans are 11 blade design that are meant to push a decent volume of air without making the card sound like a jet just before takeoff.
Rounding out the cooling of the card, here’s a better shot of the dual pipe heatsink. The 2 Gigabytes of RAM and the VRM on the Zotac GeForce GTX 650 TI Boost is cooled by heatsinks that are attached coupled with airflow from the fans.
