How many of you are using the HR-03 PLUS cooler for your 8800? Is it worth it?

My 8800GTS 320MB card came stock overclocked and was running about 59 degrees idle, and mid 60's while gaming. I have it overclocked to 648/999, and it's mid 60's idle, and low to mid 70's while gaming.

Just wondering if that cooler is worth dropping $60 on, and what I should see afterwards. I know my card isn't anywhere near heat limitations, but I always like things to be as cool as possible :sol:

Ok, I think I will get it. I should prob change my above temps, that was with 3DMark06 hitting it hard. Playing Everquest II raiding, or even playing 2 char at once, it didn't get higher than 70 degrees at 648/999.

I'll probably order it tomorrow, thanks.

Well I have installed this, and it seems to be hovering around 60 degrees while playing Everquest II raiding. So for most things, I've seen 5 - 10 degree drop, so pretty nice.

One thing to be careful on this though, this puppy is big. It fits no problem without a fan, but with a fan, it hits my cpu heatsink. However, I left the fan sitting on top of it, but had to adjust it about an inch so that it fit. So the fan is still covering 90% of it, just not connected with pins, but sitting on top of it running.
