    Thermaltake's newly released Fanless 330 VGA cooler is here, addressing the need for fanless operating graphics card coolers. The passive design of Fanless 330 offers the absolute quiet operation even for hot cards like GeForce 8800 GT or ATI Radeon HD 3850 series. It comprises of three heatsink modules, 106 cooling fins, four copper heatpipes and a mirror coated base. Half ot the cooling area lies beneath the card while the other half sits above the card, both are connected to each other via the massive heatpipes. The cooler weights in 260g and should already be available worldwide. For more information, be sure to check it out at the official Thermaltake website here. Below is the full list of supported graphics cards.

    wow, that thing is big. it would be nice if a fan could be mounted on it, fanless VGA coolers arent as effective IMHO. I wonder how it would perform against an HR 03 series?

    If it's cheaper than the HR-03 cooler and will work in HTPC settings, it might be a worthwhile investment. OF course, It would be nice if it fit ATIs and Nvidias newer cards.

    If it fits a HD3850, then it should work on a 4850 also as they both have the same hole´s around the gpu??

    Ps. I love that cooler, it looks like the only cooler really up for the job for total passive cooling. But I would still propably fit a fan on it. If it fits in my HTPC case that would be perfect.
