Now my question is this... Does it hold a 3 year warranty on your Mobo too?!?!?! :laugh:

I got the X2 on my X1900XTX and it only raised my ASUS P5W-DH Temps by 5 degrees, unless the 8800GT is alot hotter than the X1900XTX, this really won't make you mobo that much hotter.

Yes, the 8800gt does get "a lot" hotter than the 1900xtx. I can't stand that cooler.:shadedshu

If you have proper case airflow, it doesn't matter about the cooler. The stock cooler doesn't exhaust the air out either. People blow this way out of proportion on the X1 and X2 coolers.

If this cooler causes temp problems for you, it was time to rework your case cooling anyway.

Why complain. If you have a good controllable airflow, this product won't matter. If you do, then its going to be great.

Reminds me of my x1950pro Exteme 256mb from Powercolor. It had the X2 version installed, at 100% the fan was quiet, and effective. I agree the hot air blowing at the base of the slot/mb area is not necessarily good, but remove the next 2 slot covers down from the card, and really it's not a big deal.

I never noticed an increase in temps as the airflow is just low enough to vent the hot air out...so in theory it'll be worse due to recycling the hot air instead of blowing it on the base of the slot. But it kept my 1950 at 55C or less under load and OC'd.

I still prefer a cooler that exhausts the hot air directly out of the case, but that cooler doesn't look shabby, and I know from experience are decently effective. :toast:

I too prefer coolers that blow out the back... but the stock coolers are shit, and dont blow anything out either. In fact... wait, i'm having trouble remembering what coolers DO blow out the back... Hmmm... apart from a few crap stock coolers, i just cant think of any for the 8800 series.

i have a thermaltake nd1 that does (meant for 7900 series, but g92 boards have the same mouning holes) works great. The OC'd 8800 doesnt get over 60 in games.

well considering my GT runs passive, loading at 55C... thats not so impressive (29C ambient here, 740 core)

with good airflow theres no reason to worry, ofc exausting is better but this cooler is.. humm fairly well priced and is the most quite fan cooler there is for a gpu I think.. you cant really EVER hear it no matter how had you try even @ 100%. cools decently too.. I had one on my 1900gt but I also had 5 case fans one blowing directly onto the cards fan/vregs.

Thing is this cooler is very light, quite and it works great.. thought there are better in terms of cooling but this one does it well.

hot? I think not! I have an AcceleroX2 ahem, and the exhaust air isnt even what you call hot at all. Jesus, whats with people jumping to conclusions really quickly?

i've had that with lots of arctic cooling products. silent at first, but the bearings just die after about 6 months (or less if you run 100% all the time) They are cheap, so i dont mind adding some nice teflon based lubei into the bearings, or replacing teh fans :)

(yes you can replace teh X1 and X2 fan - you remove the plastic entirely and screw a 70mm on)

I feel ya my accelero x2 makes alot of noise now :( and 1 out of the 3 80mm AC fans I bough came defective/noisy..

I'll have to put some teflon lube I have for my bike on it, thanks for the tip Mussels.

I can't remember where I first heard it (might have been here), but I've been using sewing machine oil in my fans since it's made for higher RPM components. All you do is peel back the sticker on the hub of the fan and place a drop or two into the center. Some fans may have a rubber plug in the middle instead of or in conjunction with the sticker that needs to be taken out. I do this on every fan in my PC (except PSU) and they all run like new. I've even done this to fans that have become noisy and vibrate and this calms them down drastically.

I've been doing it since I gave a crap about fans in my case. I use an industrial high-rpm oil though. It's good to do it as maintenence anyway,(every 4-6 months or so) less wear = less failure.

I've got a teflon based lube for bike chains that i do this with. Only bitch is that sometimes you have to glue the sticker back on, otherwise the oil just leaks back out.
