    Okay well I have owned them all and I don't agree but we will see , I do agree the thermalright is better alot better. The orb is on par with the vf1000, so if you like it you should like the orb. I will do a mini review on the Orb and the 4850 very soon here and if it stinks then back it will go. I would have to think it will beat the stock cooler on a 4850 but who know, it did very well on my 3870s

    When will scythe realise that their coolers are severely hindered by that excessively thick baseplate which they usually use? Don't their engineers take notice???

    Hmmm. They have good competition with all the other major brand coolers, cpu and gpu wise. Maybe they think thicker plates equal better dissipation who knows. On a side note, scythe fans are really great :) Can't wait to see a review for this thing against other vga coolers.

    Umm the cards are desighned to run at those temps, nothing wrong with them there, just something that you have a problem getting your head around. If you want a better cooling setup, just flash your card to the Asus Top bios and not go over 55 deg, or create a new fan profile..

    Thicker plates do not equal better dissipation, the absence of the plate would result in better performance, due to the heat not needing to travel through a slow-conducting plate of copper where heat wells up, before reaching the superconductor pipes; resuting in a higher temperature on the core overall.

    Their dissipation units; i.e. the fin arrays are impressive and SHOULD result in superior performance compared to their smaller competitors, but is that what we see? No. We see the smaller coolers, like the Xigmatek HDT S1283, Thermalright Ultra 120, and even the Ultra 90 outperform it!

    I agree,, about the thermalright, but I need two low profile coolers for 8800GT/SLI.

    AMD needs to put these vga coolers as prefered coolers for their cards.

    My 9800XT cooler wasnt that bad. It resembles the cooler that came stock on my 8800GS cept wasnt as loud. But i eventualy put a VF700 on it to OC it.

    That is very true. They need to get more creative with their cooling solutions so temps can be decent on stock =\

    The DuOrb works great on the 4850, the wife has one on hers. However the 4870 pushes more heat and it cant cool it during gameplay.

    I think they should ditch the expansion slot fan speed controller. Quite awkward and cumbersom to be placed in such a place..

    Looks decent I guess. Although, it is still dumping all that heat into the case.

    I'm still waiting for Thermaltake or somebody to come up with something for the GTX 200 lineup. I hope it's not based on the DuOrb. I don't want 200+ watts of thermal dissipation being dumped into my case. Something based on the stock cooler with exhaust would be nice. Heck, it can take up to three or four slots for all I care.

    They could even take the stock cooler and just make it all-copper and put in a higher CFM fan and it would probably be better than stock by 10C or so.
