BOX CONTENTS & PHYSICAL DETAILS
When shopping for a 9800GT, check the specifications carefully manufacturers
usually do not follow the reference design, so different 9800GT's have different
video outputs, clock / memory speeds, memory type, and coolers.
The EN9800GT Matrix comes in a large box, and the card itself is cushioned
well with foam and interior spacer boxes to keep the card immobile. Accessories
include a component cable, DVI to VGA adapter, S/PDIF cable and 6-pin
PCI Express power adapter.
The Matrix heatsink is a two-slot exhaust cooler. The center is covered
in a black plastic shroud to direct air out the back of the case.
The fins in the circular portion of the heatsink are spaced closely together,
while those near the rear are further apart. The PCB measures 22.8cm across,
which is modest by modern standards. It will fit in standard ATX and mATX
cases, though the cooler may block motherboard components directly beneath
From this angle three heatpipes are visible. One curves to make a large
"C" with fan in the middle, and the other two are connected
to the longer exhaust fins.
The EN9800GT Matrix has built-in HDMI and S/PDIF pass-through connectors.
An internal S/PDIF header must be connected for audio output.
