Default Arctic Cooling ATI and NV Silencers

"Arctic Cooling is well known for their excellent and quiet cooling gear. They have always built well performing heatsinks, fans, and other cooling devices that offer excellent performance for overclockers while creating minimal noise. It was the Arctic Cooling VGA Silencer that made them popular among enthusiasts. This cooler was arguably the best video card cooler in the market and gave fierce competition to the likes of Thermaltake and Zalman. This cooler was the perfect cooling solution, but many wished that Arctic Cooling would somehow integrate copper and cooling for the ram chips as well. Many also wished they could have made Silencers that were available for ALL different video cards. Well Arctic Cooling has answered all of your pleas by doing just that and so much more."

CVII will get 6-8 C reduction in GPU temp; and ~5 C in CPU; no heatsinks removal is required.

If you don't think it looks cool; it sure feels cool.

After the system had heated up, at a system temperature of 37 C we measured the underside of our video card at 44 C. At stock video card and CPU speed this is hotter than we would have liked this area. It helps that our 9800 Pro's heatsink has a fan but this fan has very little draw, it really just keeps the heatsink cool. With the two 40mm fans running the GPU area dropped to 38 C, only a touch above our overall in-case temperature. This was a nice improvement over the previous condition and it would allow for overclocking the video card or maybe that 9800 Pro-to-9800 XT soft mod I have been thinking about...
