Am I wrong or is there nothing to replace the stock cooler on the 8800's?

The ACS3 isnt much better and the Calibre P880+ with TEC cooling dosent seem to have been launched.

True, very few options are available, but there are two water coolers, right here.

Here's a Thermalright air cooler.

AFAIK, the HR-03 does not fit on the 8800GTX.

Where did I say anything about 30c? lol.

You said 57C while the 8800 GTX loads at 87C.

You said 57C while the 8800 GTX loads at 87C.Sigh, I can see where this is going. Rob just agree with him that your setup dropped temps by 30C. Otherwise... :roll:

What about the EVGA kos3 edition or whatever, would that make a slight different in temp or is it not worth the money?

The ACS3 cooling isnt much better than the stock cooler. Its not worth it.

Ok I just misunderstood him. Well actually my 8800GTX never really got up to 87c even before the 2 120mm fans, the highest it would load to was 78c so I dropped around 21c after adding the fans and running the fan speed at 100% using ntune.


I have excellent case airflow which helps a whole lot to begin with.

Yeh, airflow does seem important.

Im buying my high-end PC soon and its kind of hard to get the airflow to be perfect (if there is such a thing).
