Default advice

hello everyone

i bought a evga geforce 240 gt for my htpc but i find the heatsink very crapy , the temp on card is 40 c in idle and rise 70c and just in watching full hd on my 42 inch

i have a thermalright hr-03 rev A in the box and i though i could put it on this card .... with a low speed 92mm fan

do you think it is doable? or a good silent alternative


thanks

Try it.#

Its quite a new card so you're the only one who might know if it'll work.

Should do though, Its a re-vamped 8800gt right???


Use a 120mm fan, 240 is quite stubby.








#(My asterisk doesnt work).or safer to keep googling every day to see if they work as a combo

It's a new 40 nm chip with a 128 bit bus and GDDR5 (or GDDR3), assuming this is the GT240. It performs at around the 9600 GT levels falling behind at higher resolutions.

I have on in my HTPC, let me check its temps at load.

[EDIT] Yup, it hits 70 Celsius at load.

good news

i have manage to install the hr-03 rev a on the 240gt

and i did 26c idle with a low speed 80mm
39c load

so it can probably do much better in fanless than the stock solution

i hope it can help somebody
