Future Cooler Compatability With VF900

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Okay, so tomorrow I was going to go buy a VF900CU LED for my 7900GT KO, which was reaching 115°C on RTDHDRIBL, or whatever the hell its called. I have a pretty high overclock on it, 631/1800 (no volt-mod).

My question is, is this $50 cooler going to be compatible with the future DX10 cards? And, is buying this cooler justifiable given that I'll buying a DX10 card? I'll be upgrading my video card sometime next year. Probably near the end of the summer. I'll be buying ATi then.

yeah why shouldn't it ? the VF900 is mostly better then stock coolers and i don't think the mountings on the new DX10 cards will change any time soon

Its compatible on the 8800GTX but I don't know about the R600. Why not get this cooler instead? Much better then the VF900: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835109134

And also, if you plan on buying a top end card like the R600 or 8800GTX, they have great stock cooling so you won't see much of a temp difference anyways.

115C.......I think either the sensor is wrong or the card should be dead by now.....

no they can go to 125 before the core slows down

Well I really want to go buy this cooler at Fry's and I know they have the VF900. If they have the HR-03, sure, I'll buy it, though I doubt that they have it. I don't need a totally kickass cooler, cause I hardly ever buy top tier cards (DX10 included some time in the future). I dunno if I'll even get an R600 cause I won't be getting a new card until late summer when I pool all of my summer job funds, which by then they'll have different cores out I would think.

The sensor is not dead, nor is the card. In fact, it is very much alive, as I am using it right now. Idling at 56°C right now, overclocked, of course.

And stock coolers just keep getting better and better with the advent of heatpipes by video card companies looking to get into the performance market with hotter running GPUs. The X1950XTX has a bigass heatpipe, the 8800GTX does, and I'm pretty sure that the 8800GTS does.

But yeah, since I'm going to be keeping this card (computer) for another 7-8 months, I'll just get the VF900, DX10 card compatible or not. Thanks for all the response. Here, have healthy serving of reps.

Just installed the VF900

I got a VF900CU LED from Fry's for $38! $10 Less than Newegg. I am fairly surprised at this because its usually vice-versa. Fry's = +10-30%, and Newegg = -10-30%. But I'm very happy with it. I used AS5.

Idle: 38°C
Load: 54°C

All at stock voltages of a 7900GT KO Superclocked at 631/1800.

Nobody believed me when I said my temps dropped almost as dramatically as yours! Good job on buying that VF900 man!
