Default VGA coolers are getting bigger



They measure 28mm in width and 220mm in length.

The fan has ~70mm in diameter.

The question remains; should I take the Cruise with all the beautiful women or spend the money to get the vcard.

I will have the 3rd one for NV coming yet. It's on backorder.
I received the two for ATI yesterday.

I have a good feeling that I will get either NV or ATI vcard soon enough.

My vga silencer arrived. Had some difficulties first. The blue clip on the back of the card was to big. It bumped on my NB cooler of my IS7-E. I used the original back heatsink of my hercules card and the whole thing fits right in.

It's really amazing how that thing performs!

From some of the reviews I've read, the performance from the Silencers varies from one brand or model of VGA card to another. It makes sense to me as not all VGA cards are created equal.

I gotta 9800 PRO n im having problems deciding on which cooler to get. The Ati 1 or Ati 3?

The Ati 1 is meant for 9800 Pros but doesn't come with ramsinks and has a smaller sink than Ati 3.

My Pro has the R360 core which runs a lot hotter than the R350.
According to Ati tool, my bott VGA temp is around 64. I guess thats allright while its OC'd but its getting above 75 during gaming.

Some guys have had problems with attaching Ati 1s on Pros so im guessing its probably not safe for me to try a 3. Still, though, will it be posible to stick a 3 on without any drills n stuff?
