Wanted to know what you guys thought, plus let you guys benifit from my experience. I had a x850 pro flashed to a X850xt PE with all 16 pipes open running at 600/600 stable. A friend begged for it because he knew I was building a newer system with a board which could use both agp and pci express. Well I removed the original fan from the x850xt, now PE, and the temps on the card dropped from 60c at idle to 30c at idle and with a full load it never got over 70c even clocked at 600/600. This card was now a beast, but I sold it. I then bought a x1800gto for 169.00 after a 60 dollar rebate. It also was a great card, but after I purchased it I noticed a X1800xt on sale for $219 on new eggs site DOH!!!! . So Ebay here I come . I then had a major noise problem with the Sapphire card I bought (x1800xt). It looks alot like the Artic Silence I bought for the x850xt modded PE . The only difference is it sucked big time as a cooler, and when you overclocked the card it sounded like a jet engine. So I went to buy a new Arctic cooler, but now the card is designed to blow the hot air into your case , and against your motherboard, not outside to the rear like the prior model. I still trusted Arctic because they made a great cooler on my last card. Well I wasn't disappointed. It performed as well as the other Arctic cooler I bought until It stopped working. Arctic has terrible customer service and the six year warranty is worth nothing if you cannot get them to respond to your emails. So off I went and bought a new Zalman Cooler, a Zalman VF900. I was a little nervious because the ram cooling was only passive on the Zalman, where the Arctic Cooler covered the ram and cooled it. I then spend the extra ten dollars on the Zalman and wow!!! was I impressed at the quality of this cooler. It is as well built as any cpu cooler Ive seen and really cools as good or better than the Arctic Cooler. It lowered my Gpu temp about five degrees lower then the Arctic Cooler and appears second to none in design and build. The Arctic Cooler is a very good product, but take it from me Zalman can really build a VGA Cooler and Ive swtiched sides big time. What do you think? This is a hotly debated topic all over the internet. Give me your input on this topic. What do you use and why?
