    For awhile I've been thinking of getting the ZALMAN VF900 for my ATI 1900xtx, however I haven't been able to justify the money for the fan, there is always something else that comes before it.

    Today I was bored with nothing to do, I decided to do some tweaking to the 1900xtx, to see if it would make any difference in temp.

    They say a picture says 1000 words, here are the pics below of what I did to the 1900xtx.

    With the stock cooler Fan Operating @50% under 48C, and 100% at over 55C
    Temp was:
    Idle: 47C
    Load: 3Dmark06@68C, Playing NFS Carbon@70C

    After the mods with the same fan speeds as above:
    Idle: 45C
    Load: 3Dmark06@63C, Playing NFS Carbon@65C

    Well......overall not spectacular results, but a difference of 5C it's quite impressive, specially something that didn't cost me anything, and it only took 30 minutes to put together

    What do you guys think???

    oooooo very nice! You just inspired me to something... :p Perhaps I'll steal your idea XD

    But now your card takes up like 2 extra PCI slots, doesn't it? >_>
