Hello, I was looking into buying the accelero x2 VGA fan, and i saw that for the x1950pro it says you have to install the HS or something like that, i was wondering, is it really needed to attach it, or is it just there for optimum cooling?
If it is needed, then i don't really want to purchase it, and could someone recommend a fan for the x1950pro please?
The VGA cooler itself (in this case the Accelero X2) is the heatsink (HS) and fan.
A heatsink is a metal block that conducts heat away from the the heat source, and a fan is usually attached to it to cool it down.
The Accelero X2 is a great VGA cooler. It is extremely quiet compared to the stock cooler, and it cools better.
EDIT: After reading nukemaster's post, I think he understood your question better than I did.
