Hi, i got tired of my sapphire x850xt's noizy hsf, and im looking for a good replacement for replacing the hsf, i did some research and firured that the Arctic cooling silencer 5 (rev.2) is the best choice, is this true?
Is this the best hsf solution for this particular card?
btw Where can I find one? All online etailers are out of stock on them, maby someone knows where I might find one in stock?
thx for the info guyz, i was looking at some zalman products, but all of them were hm...hsf that do not exhaust the air out, I have to admit that the exhaust does reduce teh air temp in the chasis by quite a bit, and I like the idea of not recycling the hot air to cool down the card, thats why I was looking into the Arctic cooling Silencer 5 (rev 2)
Ill check the zalmans thou, btw does anyone know where I could buy the mentioned arctic cooling hsf? I just got info 2 days ago that their production stopped, but its funny newegg.com clames to be waiting for a delivery but otheyll be avaialble on 04/30/07 lol (way to long to wait)
and i found one store but its being sold for $44, and the store looks somewhat suspicious to me.
i mailnly want to replace teh stock cooler because I think that the noise level is just unacceptable while working in 3d aplications(gaming as well)
and I like the reviews I read on the AC silencer, that it cools beter than stock, and is way quieter
I just did a search on ebay and the ebay stores have a lot for sale.
thx for the info, $36 + $16 is a bit too much for that hsf(atleast in my opinion, i found one for $48+that $7 or so for s&h, but i was looking for something in the range of about $30 max (or so) since ill be replacing the card later on in the year for a dx10 model (or atleast a 1950xt, or xtx, since i read they are relatively powerful, and rather quiet, compared to the x850xt, which im using currently)
thx for the idea, do You know if that one would be quiet? , I didnt think of asking HIS for it, but I ll try but i doubt that they would sell one to me, but if its a good cooler its worth a shot, that is if it performes beter, and is quieter :wink:
