Scythe is announcing today the second High-End VGA Cooler by the name “Setsugen” (English: Snow field). Setsugen VGA Cooler is equipped with a genuine Slip Stream 120 mm Slim fan which comes with a fan controller that can be mounted in a free PCI Slot. Fan speed can be individually adjusted between 800 (± 30%) to 2,000 rpm (± 10%) which creates an airflow of 19.40 to 45,47 CFM respectively 32 to 76 m³/h. This allows the custom adjustment airflow and noise level (19.53 – 33.67 dBA) according to everyone’s requirements and system specific ambient.

Shit is right it looks awesome. That fan placement should help cool the vrms and memory modules some too. I do hope they include memory heatsinks. I wonder though, can you add fans to the top? Because Id get one of these and one of Megalehem's new vga coolers and have crossfire goodness!

Hmm, is this a re-release, or is their marketing department a bit out of date? http://forums.techpowerup.com/showpost.php?p=1667000&postcount=15

It looks like a great design and a good price... but why is no-one complaining it is too big to fit in their cases? Remember, this cooler sticks out above the GPU card... so make sure you have a case with plenty of headspace. In slimline cases it won't fit.
This only overhangs the card by 5cm maximum.

See the 12cm fan? It starts at the GPU and goes 12cm from that. It's 8cm from the bottom of the GPU to the top of the card.

The cooler looks great!!!Too bad it wont fit my 5770s...:mad::mad::mad:Stupid double height dvi...
Has anyone thought about cutting 1 DVI port off?
It wouldnt hurt the card would it?
And since i use HDMI i wont be missing it...I ll have one left in any case though...

Finally!

I was waiting for a long long time for a cooler that fits on my GTX260² and that is below 30€. The stock cooler is killing every game experience.
After reading the first reviews this sounds like a great product. Maybe there will be a bigger review that covers more than the 48xx and 58xx series.

I think its great!

Been trying to find a LP fan so I could set up my HR-03 GT like this, but couldn't find any decent CFM LP fans in the UK.

Apparently works better with the fan flipped round.
