    Artic cooling or Zalman are two choices for air cooled. I heard the thermatake big tide(I think its called that) Is a closed Watercooling system for your GPU.

    The VF900-Cu cooler from Zalman works great! I have seen people post up that they had a 30C temp drop. thats insane. My results weren't that great on my X1800XT but it runs a bit hotter. I have heard good thing about the artic coolers too. BTW 70ish for those coolers at a max temp is normal. Scary right?

    I should be getting a blizzard cooler for my X1900XTX pretty soon. It's basically the thermaltake all in one WCing solution. I will let you know how that works out.

    have you tried taking the HS off and puttin artic silver on? On mine I also adjusted the fan speed with ATI tool so it kick in to high speed faster.

    Not sure how the blizard works, or how well. I assume its a little pump with a watercooling loop that goes through a tiny radiator.

    here is a pic.



    It doesn't matter if you have a duel slot or single slot card as you have to take the cooler off to put on the Blizzard no matter.


    The stock paste that comes on the stock coolers is usually cheap. If you are not happy with your temps I would try to take off the stock cooler and apply some AS5. It might only drop a few degrees but hey its something. This will also give you a chance to see if they mounted the cooler correctly.


    Are you running the fan at the stock ramp up speeds? If so I highly recommend using ati tool to manage fan speeds.

    Lol, 3 slot cooler.

    I say to go with one of the Accelero coolers, or a nice Aqua Computer X1800 block. It's only a single slot.
