i'm planning to buy zalman vf700 cu cooler. can someone please tell me whether this cooler is compatible with asus card? (like, HSI heatsink integrated into stock cooler for this asus card? will i be able to put ram heatsink with the zalman cooler?)
hmmm ... if that's true, then it's better to look for another cooler ... Do you know any good cooler that will be compatible with geforce6600GT agp? Not many coolers are compatible with this type of card.
I also have an asus 6600gt and have just fitted a vf700-cu due to the stock fan making constant annoying noises. The top fins sit about 3-4 cm over the top of the card and the supplied ramsinks don't fit but other then that I had no problems.
With the stock h/s at 600mhz my temps were around 44 idle 77 load. The vf700 made a huge difference with the core clocked at 620 I now get 31 idle and 45 load. I haven't tried going past 620 yet but should hopefully be able to push it even further. Most importantly it is also nice and quiet unlike the asus one.
I think they have an artic cooler compatible with the 6600 right? if anything thatd be my choice better case temps also, and never heard a bad thing about them except people that dont know how to install it and didnt put thermal paste under the heatsink gave it one star!!! bastereds...j/k
