    Products of Thermaltake’s ISGC series have become representative of silent and good performance coolers. Users have already been expecting the newest ISGC VGA cooler to complete the collection. Now, finally the ISGC-V320 is coming with lots of killer features.

    The ISGC-V320 is a true masterpiece of Thermaltake’s R&D team. Its foremost feature, as a matter of course, is its surprising silence which it inherited from the original ISGC Fan. The ISGC-V320 is equipped with two 120 mm ISGC fans. Users can adjust the fan speed from 800 to 1300RPM according to their needs. Broad compatibility of the ISGC-V320 greatly enhances its convenience factor. Supported are the last graphics cards such as the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 and ATI Radeon HD 4890. 5 heatpipes in combination with a large dissipation surface ensure best performance under high stress. With these powerful parts, ISGC-V320 can easily take loads of up to 320W.

    almost all the cards will have problems with those. heatpipes are too close to the base: hardly any possibility to install memory heatsinks.

    it does look like the heatpipes angle up from the base at the top allowing for low profile ram sinks

    Judging by the dimensions on TT's website, the cooler itself is 241mm or ~9.5 inches. Looking at the pictures from how far it's offset from the connection panel (not sure what else to call it :p) that this would hang off the far end of the 10.5" card. Seems to be kind of a silly concept making the card even longer than it is?

    I like it. with 2X120mm fans it should cover a big part of the card and provide convection cooling over important parts + the cooling of the 5 heat sinks. I'd like to see it with 2X scythe super low profile 120mm fans, yet I would have the place for 2 of those in my rig.

    My 4870 would like this!!!

    Doesn't have ANY heatsinks for GTX 280/260 VRM cooling. No NVIO sink (uses just a tiny ramsink for cooling it). In reality it's not compatible with any GT200, but you could use it with GTX 260 55nm. Any other GT200 card will need additional sinks/work and if you decide to do so, pop in to the Accelero Extreme GTX 280 thread for help.

    Quite nice looking, but as mentioned earlier, the "universal" compatibility also means that it'll hang way over the card length in GT200s at least. That will mean that it doesn't fit some cases.

    edit: funny part is they use GTX 280 as an example card in the manual and totally fail on the VRM sink placement. They hover in air over 3 of the 7 VRM's that would need to be cooled.. http://www.techpowerup.org/uploaded.php?file=090703/fail.jpg

    Finally! It was about time for an affordable 3rd party cooler for a GTX260. The Arctic Cooling Monster is way overkill and overpriced to cool a $200 card.

    I hope they will offer this thing at a reasonable prize.

    From thier product page:
    Memory Heatsink Aluminum x 17 pcs
    VRM Heatsink Aluminum x 4 pcs

    This looks OK, those fans have notches at the blade tips... I've seen before, who else does that?

    I'm sure Tt skimped in some import aspect of the thing. The card they used for the product image is sloppy, exposing the first inch or two of PCB (though it's pretty PCB).

    They look promising. I will await reviews on a 4890 tho. I somehow doubt that this cooler can handle that. We'll see, if it performs good, I might get me some of em.

    OOh i'll get this and hope i can still keep the stock plate on like i do with the Musashi. And get some 120x38mm fans for it :). As 100mm fans pretty much suck ass.

    Looks pretty good there. I like those fans, especially the blades and the color. If I snagged one, I would keep them personally. Especially since they are good and silent.

    If there any thing like there see though ones they are not all that good. Although they are silent but no good when near some thing like a filter or CPU cooler. I replaced them all in the TT Armor case was not happy with any of them.

    THe cheap rosewill ones are better with the red blades although not great just cheap :p.
