Icy Vision A on Visiontek HD 7970 mini review Aftermarket cooler

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Well just want to share the expirience of this cooler, instruction sucks tooke me like 3 to 4 hrs !!, doesnt say anything about installing on HD 7970 so i had to find reviews and pic of this cooler on an HD 7970.

Resulst is (OC 1100 core and 1500 mem)

Visiontek HD 7970 Blue pcb and Tim is AS5 Catalyst 13.5 Beta 5

Heaven Benchmark

Stock
Load 77c with 60%, loud as jet

Icy Vision A
Load 49c (rpms are locked), sound is like 30% to 35% on stock cooler

BF3

Stock
Load 70c with 60%

Icy Vision A
Load 46c (rpms are locked), sound is like 30% to 35% on stock cooler

Metro

Stock
Load 76c with 60%

Icy Vision A
Load 49c (rpms are locked), sound is like 30% to 35% on stock cooler

the only con is installing and might bend a little the card becouse is heavier

PS Sorry about my English
PS 2 i bought it on Ebay and they send it to my country Chile, 1 month to get here and it was 55us with shipment

hope it helps to some one XD

Hello, thanks for the review.


Im doubing between the Arctic Accelero and the Gelid Icy Vision, But i read about bad VRM temps on the accelero, how are your VRM temps now with the Gelid Icy Vision?

Can you also post a picture with the cooler on the card?

Thx

with the vram i dont know the visiontek cards have a bug and they dont read the temps. Artic Accelero dont think its worth it, almost the same temps and this one is alot cheaper

Thank you for the pictures biggrin.gif

but i what i mean is the VRM temps, (power distribution) not the Vram the memory.

I see they included alluminium heatsinks for the memory, but do you also get heatsinks to put on the other parts of the card?

thx
