From Fudzilla:

Today we tested yet another 8600, and this one comes from Asus. The Asus  EN8600GT card is a mid range DirectX 10 product, priced at around €120 in Euroland. Asus clocked its Geforce 8600GT at reference speeds, but the cooler they used is much better, so we can expect better stability, both on default clocks and during out overclocking runs. The Geforce 8600GT uses the same GPU as the GTS version, but it's clocked at lower speeds.

The core works at 540MHz, while the memory is clocked at 1400MHz. Asus uses Samsung's GDDR3 1.4ns passively cooled memory chips. Thanks to the cooler design, the air flow pases through the copper fins and cools the memory chips with relative ease. If you're lucky to get an 8600GT with a good core you will probably hit GPU speeds in excess of 675MHz with relative ease, keep in mind that the GTS version's core is clocked at 675MHz. Since the GT uses inferior memory it will be the only obstacle to turning your GT into an 8600GTS. The cooler is quiet, and the maximum temperature we got was aroung 60 degrees Celsius.
