There is 1 gigabyte of GDDR5 memory in eight FCFBGA chips on the face side of the PCB:

The chips are the same as on the Inno3D card, so we can only add that they are clocked at 4008 MHz, in full compliance with Nvidia’s official specs.

The Leadtek can’t boast high clock rates, so let’s try to find anything exciting in its cooling system.

The cooler consists of two separate aluminum heatsinks which are connected with three 8mm heat pipes. The heatsink on the GPU features direct-touch technology:

The whole system is cooled by two 80mm fans fitted into a plastic casing:

Their speed is PWM-controlled automatically within a range of 1200 to 4400 RPM.

Interestingly, the Leadtek WinFast GTX 560 OC turned out to be exactly as hot as the Inno3D in the game test as well as under FurMark.

 

Thus, the difference in the efficiency of the cooling systems of the two graphics cards is compensated by the difference in the clock rates and the GPUs. Of course, Inno3D’s cooler is more effective.

The Leadtek card could be overclocked a little:

The GF114 processor cannot show high overclockability but the memory chips could be overclocked better than those of the Inno3D card.
