Which chipset fan for SLI-DR Expert?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Will the evercool VC-RE fit on a SLI-DR expert board, in SLI mode? Or what will? I am trying to find the best chipset fan/heatsink for this board, but it needs to allow SLI for 2 7800GT's. I am not keeping stock, because it is the same as the ultra-d's. My ultra-d's stock fan melted at some point last year(the middle spindle part). Just recently noticed it when I got the expert board.

A Thermaltake Extreme Spirit II or Swiftech MCX159-Cu will do the job. Both are actively cooled and all copper. I'm tempted to get the Extreme Spirit II mainly because its got the Blue LEDs

Can I get links to a place with good prices on these? I dont see anything good on newegg, atleast not In my search. I am on a short budget right now, I cant afford much. But I dont want to run the new board with that stock HSF.

svc and nexfan both carry the vc-re...and I believe it will work in the sli mode...it isnt any higher or bigger than the stock cooler...

I rubbed on my vc-re with 400grit paper and lightly buffed it with scotch-brite then put it on and it seems to work better than having a mirror finish...it seems giving it a mirror finishes closes the pores in the copper and may be trapping heat...?

with mine under full load I only see 34c at the highest chipset temp...

Another question at that... What about those little pins pointing outwards on the sides of the chip? The stock HSF has some kind of square rubber thing that touches them. I am thinking, the metal of the HSF can short the board if it touches those little pin things? What about with the vc-re ? Or will copper not do anything to those pins?
