I've been using these suckers for a while now. Great cooling for video cards IMO.
The problem with this unit from the thread is that its going to be blowing air over 2 pci slots and not directly over the AGP port for one thing. Also, since all vid cards now and last generation have a fan right on the vid card, that unit will interrupt the air flow coming away from the vid card and will cause turbulence(bad for case cooling). Although some ppl may get this to help some, its not going to get the same results as the link suggests, especially since that link shows an extremely OLD AMD Duron processor in the test system and that system has no video card with a built in fan(ie voodoo 3)

Default Re: x800pro performance...

Wanted to add one more thing. There are PCI slot fan sloutions that Actually will blow air OUT of the case that comes directly off the vid cards fan flow. So, the vid card fan blows the hot air down, the pci fan slot thing catches that air and immedietely dispels it out at the back bottom of the case. This CAN help, especially since the hot air coming off the vid card doesnt get circulated in the rest of the case and then finally dispelled out the back TOP. These pci slot fans arent too expensive either, I think like 19.99 or something and I have seem them work.

This link shows one example and its only 7.95. Cant beat that! And if it doesnt help too much, then you havent wasted much of anything
