From afar... Google Hardware Unboxed worst ever graphics card.

Yep, constant 100% ~3500 rpm fan speed sounds fun and "smartly engineered" to me.:D 'That ghetto Hellhound cooler swap was funny tho'

make the SHROUD SUPER CLOSE TO THE FAN BLADES like jet turbine.

based on the design you will have to lower the fan speed until you find the temp drop rapidly then put that as your max cooling speed.

If anything it will be the cheapo cookie cutter heatsink underneath that is the real issue and the fans are cookie cutter fans.

It could also be a good cooler yet, we don't actually know.

I was going to just say make some cut outs to vent in those 2 directions and that will help direct the turbulence decreasing loss to just 50% but best thing I would tell people is block off any spots that you can see straight threw the fans because that's where the air is going to go the quickest oh yeah make the heatsink MATTE black.. increases thermal dissipation 30% automatically and can be tested in passive state.

Just finished watching that video and...wow. That card is comically bad in nearly every way, but especially in terms of cooling. Probably the worst cooling I've ever seen. The sad thing is, that's the biggest thing holding it back, because Steve decided to slap the Hellhound's cooler on it for shits and giggles and the card was a completely different animal, running both cooler and much, much quieter.

That's an old-style cheap extruded aluminum heat sink, and yes it sucks ass compared to modern fins. My last GPU like that was a Sapphire HD 6850. It still overclocked ok for being so cheap. I think I paid maybe $140 for that. To put that on a $400 card is an insult. MSI had it right with those golden edition GTX 465s. I'd pay to get my hands on one of those now.

No, we do know, it was tested in linked video and its garbage.

I don't understand anything else of what you said but making the heatsink black will do absolutely nothing.
Biostar? No.
Biostar should cut out the middle man just bypass the retailers and customers and ship their products directly to the landfill.

Yeah, I just like ripping Biostar because everything they make is junk. Why?, too much?
No, just that you have confused what has gone on in the thread :roll:

Correcting a comment which the same user posted the video after that post lol, just looked weird.

Reminds me of Asus putting the similar barrel-scraping, single-fan Phoenix cooler from the 1650 onto the 1660 Super and RTX 2060. Those 2060 cards throttled HARD under that GTX 650-grade heatsink.

People like to shit on FE cards but even the short variant 20 series FE come a long way. At least they offer acceptable cooling performance for their small size, which is more than can be said for this overpriced garbage.
