on newegg the VF3000F is sold for 69.99,it says it's compatible with the gtx 570/580,although ,from what I can tell, looks the same as the gtx 480 version.is it the same one?wondering because if it is might get it for my gtx 480,next cheapest one is on ebay for $95 open box,so I'm hoping that they are the same.
also what do you think of the Asetek 760GC http://www.asetek.com/desktop/gpu-a-combo-coolers/760gc...
same price as the VF3000F,but cools both the cpu and gpu.seems promising but it relies solely on the gpu turbine fan to cool the vrms and ram,vs including some sort of ram/vrm heatsink like the VF3000F includes.
This is what you should do! http://www.overclock.net/t/1203528/official-nvidia-gpu-...
I currently have an H50 mounted on my GTX 560ti 448 Cores.
By doing this, you're able to soley cool your GPU with the CLC while still keeping the original fan assembly that cools the VRM's and memory chips!
thats the same as the 760GC lol.the pump cools the gpu and it gives you a 4 pin splitter to plug in both the pump and the fan,so that the fan can cool the vrm' and memory. except it gives you a way to mount it to the card,whereas with a h50 mod you have to DIY.
also the h50 costs $5 less than the 760GC,but the 760GC can cool both the cpu and gpu ....so it seems a bit counter productive to get the corsair h50 instead
You realize that's not enough rad space to cool the CPU+GPU!?
thats why I asked what people thought of it,because that was what I thought.but as you saw it's intended to cool gpu and cpu,I asked to find out what people thought of it as far as it's effectiveness goes.
