    I recently did the bios flash and upgraded my x850 pro to an x850 XT PE. I was looking at the AC Silencer 5 R.2 but from what people say the fan has died. I was looking at the zalaman but the reviews did not say it ran that cool. Any suggestions for HS/F? (I don't really care about noise)

    Any input would be great, thanks. :)

    I would suggest getting the Zalman and then running some side fans blowing directly onto the card.

    I have an evercool, does a very great job... It's a evercool VC-RHB, ith aliminium plates front and back, and 4 fans (The VC-RHA doesn't have the fans.)

    Review of the VC-RHB

    Thanks for the info and the pics -- I've got a spare Evercool VC-RHB lying around that I am planning to use on my X800XT. Good to hear it fits on the X800/X850 cards! Looks pretty sweet, too!
