Default GeForce 8800 GT Mega Heatsink Roundup

Many of you know that NVIDIA's 8800 GT can run rather hot under load. Our GTs ran at over 90C. That spells disaster in a hot case. Let HardOCP show you the way to cool down that white hot GT while not breaking the bank and getting great performance.

Are they allowed to call it a mega roundup without testing the AC S1 with 120mm fan tied to it?

good testing, high/low fan speed, good dBA reading and another test-room to add to the list where it's deadsilent and dBAmeter reads:

With everything turned off and the room completely silent the meter registered a sound level of 38dB(A). This is a very quiet office where a simple pin drop can be heard.

I'll be moving soon; so will have to do some re-tests with dBA levels, and most likely have to retest most fans too, since I'm moving to a "dead quiet" region with no highways, railroads or big roads nearby.

Concerning the outcome of the test, place the AC S1 without fan somewhere ~20C cooler than stock @ auto, and with Turbo Fan module it's in the lead by few degrees

with same fan 5C cooler than HR-03

see, that is a MEGA roundup, I like the thinking of those people that if you can mount 2 120s you do it =P
