2 bad there so freakin huge that they don't fit into my barebone!
At newegg.com they are $30, which seems a bit expensive for an ATI cooler1, on the companys website the suggested retail price is $22
Newegg seems to overprice their cooling stuff
At least newegg have them in... UK stores only have the ATI 4 guess I'll just have to wait for the ATI 3...
They seem to be hovering around $30 at most major web retailers. The lowest I've seen is $24.95
Which one do you think would work with a powercolor 9550? Heres a shot of the card:
I believe the #1 is the one that will fit that card
Is this review gonna come anytime soon?
i'm working on the zalman zm-80d review at the moment.. got set back by a week by the world of warcraft stress test
i also emailed arctic cooling about the 9550
I'll add my impressions about the ATI Silencer 4.
I bought it to do a volt mod. I don'T see a reason for this äheatsink when you run a card at stock clocks since it'S not too loud and cool enough.
When i did a voltmod to 1.48 volts my stock HS wet up to 85 degrees wich was much too high for my liking. ATITool with fan control wasn't released back then.
I bought the ATI Silencer 4 and used AS5 and got a load temperature of 65 degrees or 59 @100% fanspeed at same clocks and voltage!!! I must add that i reaplied my stock HS and used AS5 so the 85 degrees weren't because of a bad mounted HS + thermalpad.
People report only small differences after the installation but it seems they either do it wrong or they compare at stck speeds where the stock HS is not too bad.
I can highly recommend the ATI Silencer 4 to overclockers and people who want to di a volt mod.
which one is for the 9600XT 256 if i want ramsinks?
ATI silencer 2 is the one that covers RAM on the 9600XT.
cheers, and if i want to add me own ramsinks?
for some reason me ram isnt BGA, its Tsop or what ever the abbrv is
guys! how do i make my own ramsinks???
u can get 8 pure copper heat sinks at newegg for $7 or u could find a piece of copper and drill holes in it
OMG Bumped from the depths of hell!
RUN, ITS CONSUMING ALL MORTAL BEINGS
it's only 3 months y'know
I've seen threads bumped from 3 years before!
any info from arctic on the 9550 w1zard?
Yea, I've got a 9550, wot should I use?? Is 1 the best option?
Is an ATI Silencer really worth the money? I think I'll get problems with installing. Is it difficult to install a Silencer? I have a Hercules 9700 Pro 128MB.
I can recommend the ATI Silencer for my X800Pro. The temps are around 20degC lower(!) and the Silencer is quieter at 100% than the stock at 30%.....at least to my ear....easy to install, although I had to move oneof the HD,s to a lower slot because of the size of the thing....but no probs!
Hmmm, I'm afraid of destroying my card
Just got a NV5(rev2) and the heatsink is not even flat,2mm gap on the ram chips when fully tight and no reply from Arctic after 4 days and 2 emails.if this is what their products and service are like its very poor.Just found out its a faulty discontinued line but still sold in Australia.
