I would like to know if this cooler is compatible with this card? Can anyone post?
i looked around and couldnt find a definite answer. i wouldnt say 100% no but as far as i can tell its not a popular combination.
Thanks for your answer, but i´ve a big problem, I have 2 hd4770 and the spacing isn't much, i found the SOrb from thermaltake, but it's to tall 34.5mm i'm afraid it will touch the bottom VGA (only have one slot between the 2 VGA's). Wich cooler you recomend? (Not to expensive).
probably it is but why not ask to zalman ? http://www.zalman.co.kr/ENG/Contact/GetSupport/Write_Form.asp ,iirc x1650XT/8600gt compatible coolers can used for 4770 .
Shame on lazy companies dont update compatible product pages
It's really sad.... Because that's the first thing I did, one week ago... Sure, still no answer... .
Do you think this is good cooler for HD4770? Because as I use Xfire, the top VGA tends to oveheat (90ºC). I´ve seen a review of the Thermaltake SOrb, and they are saying it can lower temps almost 20ºC, do you think I can Get the same with Zalman? Because SOrb wont work for me, it's too tall
zalman vf-900cu does. I have 2 of these coolers on my x-fired 4770's
I know, but those coolers here in Portugal are very expensive. But, by the way what temps you get with those coolers? And the noise?
I was using VF900 on HD4850 and it was cooling it nicely.
I don't know if these are available your side, but they come highly recommended.
But the 700's are not bad. Used them on older cards.
Zalman vf-900cu keeps my 2 x hd4770 in x-fire @ 36*c idle load @ 47*c, not bad and really pleasant, hardly any noise, or at least it doesn't bother me.
Akasa Vortexx Neo is also really high performance, silent and dumps heat outside the case.
I used a vf700 on my old 8600gt's and they worked well. but on the 8800gt's i used to have, I tried it on one for a test but it didnt work well on the higher end cards as far as temperature control.
Thanks a lot for your sugestions, but the one from akasa is 38mm and i can't pass 30mm because it will touch the bottom VGA. Does anyone knows the Sorb from Thermaltake? Even this one is 34mm but I think I can bend the pipes to lower the metal fins?!!!!!!!!
all of these claim to be only 30mm high
I dont know , best card used vf700 family cooler was gigabyte 9600gt and difference was only 7ºC at load from reference cooler ,may be a bit better on 4770 but dont wait any miracle .It is an old cooler ,4 years iirc.
Do you need space between cards for airflow ?There is/are some coolers you can use upside/downside freely ,get one of them install it (heatsink looking to cpu ,put a fan if necessary) upside the card ,sorry dont remember brand or model
Edit :I found http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=340&type=expert&pid=4 will something like that work for you? (Look to pic with 2 vga cards at bottom)
Thanks, I think I'll try the GFXChilla it looks great, silent and it's affordable, i don't want to spend more than 50€ in a cooler for a 90€ VGA. Here in Portugal that kind of material is very expensive
