Holy cow, Batman, that's one mahoosive heatsink!
apparantly 4c cooler than stock single slot coolers
nice..... quiet and powerful cooling, i hope this becomes a trend even if it is huge.
Perfect, I've been planning an upgrade before mid-range 8800's come out and a 1950Pro was on the list, a silent one will be uber.
Pah. I've already got my passively-cooled 7950 GT.
looks like mit might not fit in some cases....
Holy hell, that is huge.
Oh my... No SLi there guys
120mm fan on that would be awesome.
Won't fit in most narrow cases it seems :S. It's also WELL out of the question for HTPC builders, unless they fancy knocking a hole in the roof
i cant figure out the big deal about having 0 noise, do people find it that irritating?
If you have to ask then you clearly don't understand how infuriating the noise gets
I'd managed to bring the overall noise of my system down quite a bit by investing in quieter sollutions, suspending the HDD's, absorption matting etc. Sadly now the loudest part in my system is the graphics card with failing fan which I have serviced to no avail.
Something like this would be awesome but I think I need some more new kit first
That looks ugly beyond belief. At least XFX's passively cooled 7950GT actually looked good.
Would sir like a graphics card with his heatsink?
You'll probably find that the sorts of people who spend money on high end passively cooled graphics cards are the sort who love their PC's but hate the fact that it has to be some big noisy box sitting taking up tonnes of space. I don't imagine any of them are going to care very much what it looks like.
Nope I dont. So long as it is as close to silent as possible im happy.
Thats one BIG passive cooler there. Í would put at least one fan to top of it but then... it would lost its meaning as a passive cooler
