GPU cooler questions:

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
1) What is the best one out so far that would work with a 7600GT? I assume the ZALMAN VF900 ? It doesn't list the 7600GT for compatablity though in the list on newegg.

2) How "future" proof are they? Like, could I move this to my DX10 card, assuming its NVidia, or if I had an ATI card now, I could move it to my DX10 ATI card, etc?

BTW.
85C load in ATITool isn't that bad considering there are no artifacts due to temps, right? I know cards are good up til 115C, even though its not good for it to be that high, but 85C scares me a bit. >_>

Well I dont know how closely the VF900 and VF700 are related, but the VF-700 fits fine a 6600GT which is the same PCB as the 7600GT

I wouldn't be too thrilled about those temps. I don't have mine OC'd as high as you do... but I've never even seen 60C with mine.At worst, you're shortening the life span of the GPU, but you've been around enuff to know that the card will be outdated long before that happens.

That Zalman is about the only cooler that I can find for it ( I think it'll fit , no problem, but I'm not sure).

Yep, the vf900 is definately the hsf to go with. But the thing is, were not too sure if its futureproof or not..

It won't fit the 8800GTX, but who knows past that. I would go with the VF900/FC-ZV9 or the Thermalright HR-03.
