    hey w1zz is there any way to modify the cooler to accept use of short heatsinks on the memory? could u also take a pic to show gap between card and the heatsink?i dont need to know but im sure someone else would like to know

    I just broke down and ordered one of these from NewEgg. You just can't beat that price!
    I have a 6600GT and an X1300pro to test it on. I'm hoping that maybe I can run it passively on the X1300Pro :D
    I'll let you guys know what I think of it. Thanks for the review though, it was very helpful in making my final puchase:toast:

    EDIT: 1 question though... Does this take up two or overflow and block three slots?

    You can buy a set of good copper heatsinks with sticky on them for about $20 and nip the height a bit.

    Thanx for the great review W1zzard!
    I just have one question: Is the Accellero X2 better than Evercool?

    they are both very similar .. the evercool turbo 2 is a lot cheaper though, cools a bit less well and does not cool the memory

    nice long compatability list. sounds like its an efficiant, effective and quiet cooler.

    the plastic with metalic paint seems a little bulky, uneeded and looks as though the rounded outermost part would go further then the extra pci space needed.

    I'm thinking of buying this for my X850XT...do you think it'll fit with copper ramsinks cooling memory? (copper sinks being about 1cm tall)

    From my measurements on this cooler, it looks there is about 13mm of clearance underneath the main fins of the VC-RHC. So 1CM RAMsinks should fit.

    Well, it looks like it won't fit on ALL X1300 series cards....... :(
    It won't fit on my Asus X1300Pro 256MB because there are a couple caps at the top of the board that the heatpipes hit. Looking at most other X1300 cards, these caps are not there, so it looks like this is an isolated case of pure bad luck :banghead:

    Oh, and in case anyone was wondering, the fan on this thing really IS very quiet!:rockout:

    it will fit as a x850 is the same thing as a x800 in terms of pcb layout if im not mistaken...

    oh I'm sorry...I was just being a little paranoid :p. With video cards getting as hot as they do, I have to be careful lol. I think I'll probably go with ATIsilencer5. I hope that they come out with rev.3 soon and that it fixes the fan control problems lol.

    some people have been having their ATIsilencer5 fan's crap out on them when using ATItool fan control, theres an entire thread dedicated to this topic lol. After I get ATIsilencer5 I'll just use ATItool as a temp monitor lol. ATI drivers are supposed to shut up all video cards with fan control, so thats what I'll use lol

    Evercool

    its the worse company ever. THey stole the design from XXXXXX XXX XXX and are copying them. They give 0 customer support also they dont even know how to trouble shoot the sold product. I say they are doing international fraud .

    If you want a 4 heatpipe version of this cooler, you're basically looking at the Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 (with the Turbo Module if you need it) or Zalman VF1000. I've tested the Accelero S1 and was pretty impressed with it's passive cooling performance.

    i am considering purchasing one of these for my x800 pro vivo. one small question though for those who already have it, does it plug into the card so that it has dynamic speed?
