PNY GTX 550 TI different Cooler

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey, everyone.

I got this GTX 550 TI a few months ago and ever sence i have been sitting here wondering.

" what reason did PNY had to put this odd little cooler on this card?"

Is their anything different about?
looks like the same PCB and everything, just different cooler, almost like a gigabyte.
Same part number as the regular PNY version and everything, just is a bit odd to me and interesting


I searched the net and found pictures of about 2 of the same ones.

anyways here's some pictures of it.

i think it maybe that PNY opted to put a smaller cooler on the non OC'd models:

When i bought it off a guy he didn't have a picture of it but i had a pny 550 ti with the regular cooler on it, so i figured it's probably the same one sense its no the XLR8.

But i opened up the box and i was like eh-smiley.gif , Didnt bother me tho after i installed it, for some reason it ran a bit cooler than the other one.

my guess would be the more open cooler would be able to disperse the heat a bit better than then closed shroud that exhausts just out one end.
