View Full Version : Impressive GPU cooling solution!

...found this on a german website...
It looks like a 9700 or a 9500 series, but i think it will do the job on a GFFX as well... ;)
anyway it looks very impressive
given the size of the actual fan (small blades), i think its loud (maybe a high pitch sound) but not as much as an FX

theres' a method to that madness... loud enough to blow your ear drums... no ear drums... no hearing = completely quiet cooling solution :)


btw those ram sinks are like friggin skyscrapers

that's not a 9700 or 9500 - first, no power connector - second, it doesn't have BGA ram - third, it's actually a 9000 pro (or 8500, same diff). What a waste of uber-cooling

I get more and more satisfied with my watercooling-system (GPU and CPU) when I see the extremes people go to to get sufficient air-cooling. My radiator alone (BlackIce Extreme) is probably smaller than the heatsinks on that Radeon-card

Only one slow-moving (silent) 120mm fan is attached to the radiator and makes very little noise, and the CPU/GPU temp never rises above 45 even when overclocked to the max and with heavy load. :)

You can't buy it in a package... its an assemblage of pieces made from two or more very large CPU heatsinks. I saw it on some korean or other mysterious asian picture-language website some days ago.. they showed how it was done. Lots of hacksawing and stuff.. :)

And yes, its a Radeon 9000, they said so.

Bah... childsplay! I have an Alpha socket 370 heatsink with 60mm Delta strapped to my card!

ok, so I disconnected the Delta and am passively cooling it because it didn't have much OC headroom to begin with, and the noise was horrible. :D
