GeForce 8800 GT heatsink roundup

Posted on Friday, December 21 2007 @ 04:05:35 CET by

Do you want your GeForce 8800 GT to run a bit less hot or more quiet? Then check out this new roundup at HardOCP - they've taken a look at seven coolers that fit on the GeForce 8800 GT graphics card.
The card of choice for our roundup is none other than the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT. Offering performance of the more expensive cards at a price many people can swallow, this card is on many enthusiasts’ holiday lists. Since this card is so new many heat sinks out there don't officially offer support for this card yet. But wait! Doesn't it have the same mounting holes as the 7900 series of video cards? You would be correct and we intend to find out which coolers will fit and how well they perform. The best part of the whole deal is that if you have an older video card like a 6600 GT, some of the coolers highlighted today will grow with you as upgrade! No need to spend more cash as you upgrade to a 7-series than 8-series.
Performance-wise the Thermalright HR-03 GT was the best of the pack and this cooler was also pretty silent with the fan running at low-speed. The performance gains are pretty big, under load the card reaches a temperature of 90°C with the stock cooler while the best heatsinks keep the card below 50°C.
