I still want to know when. biggrin.gif

Reference design is better but still very limited exhaust area. I know cases aren't designed for easy GPU cooling even if GPU coolers were better. But side vents/fans, bottom vents/fans, wide cases have lots of extra back space for rear venting now. CPU's have decent case venting design and coolers to match. With the heat modern GPU's make we need similar designing/cooling.

Never. smile.gif

It's just too small of a market to develop something that specific. And we are already over the peak in VGA power consumption anyway.
That being said, the reference cooler works fine, if you dont care about noise.
If you do care about noise, then different solutions will give you more quietness, from Asus DC cards to aftermarket coolers from Prolimatech or Deep Cool.

Personally i use the Alpenföhn Peter and i'm happy with it, sure the Case temps will be a few degrees higher, so i have to compromise a bit, but not too much that it'd bother me.
Furthermore you can run a 2600k @4,5GHz and a GTX680 very ery quietly with the right cooling components, so that's more thasn most people need.

And there is also the watercooling option. (The Arctic Hybrid might be something you would like wink.gif)

indeed. There are some very good aftermarket coolers. And some with a little thought could have air channeled to and heat away very nicely with a couple of empty PCI slots below them.

WATER!
Be careful.. Very careful. You could end up on the unsavory person water watch list for even thinking such things.

AIR! iT'S THE ONLY WAY TO GO! biggrin.gif

Akasa comes up with their version of a dual tower heatsink, the Venom Medusa, including 8x 6mm Heatpipes, one 145mm and one 120mm fan:

Looks beefy, the fans are not bad, this could be promising, if it's a bit cheaper than the ususal suspects.

Looks beefy, the fans are not bad, this could be promising, if it's a bit cheaper than the ususal suspects.

The 120 mm stock fan seems to be the Viper 120mm PWM AK-FN059 the same that comes with the Venom and the Venom Voodoo.

http://www.akasa.com.tw/update.php?tpl=product/product.detail.tpl&no=181&type=Fans&type_sub=Ultra%20Quiet%20Fan&model=AK-FN059

The 140 mm stock fan seems to be the Viper R 140mm PWM AK-FN073.

http://www.akasa.com.tw/update.php?tpl=product/product.detail.tpl&no=181&type=Fans&type_sub=PWM Control&model=AK-FN073

I'm the Viper 120 PWM AK-FN059 and the Viper 140 AK-FN063 owner.

http://www.akasa.com.tw/update.php?tpl=product/product.detail.tpl&no=181&type=Fans&type_sub=PWM Control&model=AK-FN063

In my opinion the Viper 120 is a nice fan.
The Viper 140 has good air flow but is rather loud, it isn't quiet like the Viper 120.

I can't tell about the Viper R 140.
His specifications is close to the Viper 140.

The Scythe Ashura:





http://www.computerbase.de/artikel/gehaeuse-und-kuehlung/2013/test-scythe-ashura-cpu-kuehler/


This seems to be pretty damn good. It's pretty much Scythe's anwer to the True Spirit 140 by Thermalright:
A Slim Tower with 6x 6mm Heatpipes. Assymmetrical design for full ram comatibility and a 140mm Scythe Hayabusa fan.
The performance is as expected, 2-3 Degrees behind the Dual Tower coolers like the Silver Arrow or Dark Rock Pro 2, etc... for ~40€ that's a nice result.
Another good news is that SCythe has finally changed their Mounting Kit to a more common design similar to the Noctua, Thermalright and Prolimatech ones:

Talking about Alpenföhn, here is their new High End SLim Tower Cooler called Himalaya 2:


(Himalalya 1 on the left, Himalaya 2 on the right)
It's pretty much a copy of the Archon SBE

They also showed a revamped version of their VGA Cooler called Peter.
