I have a nVidia eVGA 8800GTS video card however I would like to upgrade the entire cooling unit on the card and was wondering what you guys recommend? If you guys have any at all suggestions for the 8800GTS, please post here for me...

Thanks so much in advance.

Water or air?

I have the Thermalright HR-03 Plus with a Zalman ZM-F2 92mm Silent fan on my GTS with Arctic Silver 5! ......

Keeps my GTS at 49c-51c idle and still has not passed 62c under full load yet!(thats with my overclocks)

Lost planet (DX10)

Hive Infaltration level

Res 1920x1440

AA - 4X
HDR - medium
Texture filter - 8x
texture res - high
model quality - high
motion blur - high
ect ect ect

i used my logitech G15 lcd display to monitor the temps so i didnt have to leave the game.

sat mostly at 64c, flickered to 65c for afew seconds every now and then but mostly at 64c thats with the above settings.


Again back to the coolers, i dont think you will find a better air cooler than the HR-03 Plus, i know people whos cards idle at around my max temp, i could get it even cooler if i bought a different fan, i just went for silence.

Dont you think some performance numbers in a demanding application regarding the only aircooler compatible with the 8800-series was relevant to your thread?
