BFG TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCES TWO ‘OCX’ OVERCLOCKED GRAPHICS CARDS WITH THERMOINTELLIGENCE CUSTOM COOLING SOLUTION

8800 GT OCX and 9600 GT OCX run faster out-of-the-box and operate significantly cooler than stock boards


Lake Forest, IL – (June 3, 2008) – BFG Technologies, Inc., the leading North American and European supplier of advanced NVIDIA-based 3D graphics cards, power supplies and other PC enthusiast products, announced today the BFG GeForce 8800 GT OCX and BFG GeForce 9600 GT OCX 512MB PCI Express 2.0 graphics cards.

Each new OCX edition features the highest stable clock speeds and a ThermoIntelligence custom cooling solution. The custom fansink  enables the graphics processing unit (GPU) to operate up to 18° C and 30° C cooler than the stock 9600 GT and 8800 GT, respectively.

“Our new custom ThermoIntelligence fansink provides dramatic improvement to the GPU cooling for both of these new high-performance graphics cards”, said John Malley, senior director of marketing for BFG Technologies. “With screaming-fast OCX-level clock speeds and amazing thermal performance in a quiet dual-slot design, these new graphics cards provide end users with maximum performance and minimum heat—all backed by our famous lifetime warranty and 24/7/365 expert tech support.”

The all copper, two-slot fansink features sleek chrome nickel plating and green LED lighting. A variable speed fan keeps the GPU cool when the system temperature rises. BFG has also added custom aluminum heatsinks to keep the memory cool.
