Are there any outside exhausting heatsinks for 7600GT

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I would love to have an outside exhausting heatsink/fan, like whats on stock 8800gtx's for my 7600gt...any chance?


Also if not, I can pick up the vf700 for about $22 shipped, or the vf900 for about $30 shipped is it worth the $8 difference?

I don't know of any Heat sink fans for a 7600GT that will blow air out the open PCI slots in the back of your PC. You'd probably have to mod something to do this.

But take this into consideration: probably the best VGA cooler around is the Thermalright HR-03 Rev A cooler. It's a little pricey at over $40, but I can pretty much guarantee you'll love it. It blows straight at the HS / Card itself. Add a decent 92mm fan to it, and your temps will decrease drastically. I have the "Plus" version myself (for the 8800GTX) and I idle at about 40C.

One downside is that it's somewhat large. Make sure you'll have enough room in your case before getting it.

If you go water cooling, then yes.

I personally have this unit and love it.

Will that still leave room when I sli for a second card?

It depends... when I was doing research on the HR-03, I saw someone who had put two of these on 8800's in SLI, each cooler facing the opposite direction. You can mount these upside down due to the sealed heatpipes. (mine is mounted upside down). But if your CPU cooler is too big your going to have a problem fitting the top one because you'll have to mount it upwards to allow space for the second card... and the bottom one is gonna be a tight squeeze too. I hope this makes sense.... I'll look for the link where it was done so you can see a picture.

EDIT: I may have been a little off with the SLI mounting procedures.... not 100% sure... but here is a link to Legion Hardware showing two HR-03's mounted in SLI.... the only problem is the way they did it there was no room for fans. The temps are still respectable without fans because the heatsink is so large, however. You may be able to mount them differently, but they take up a ton of space and restrict the other PCI slots. Here is a link to the Overclock Intelligence Agency, where they tested it without a fan and with 3 different kinds of fans.

I still think they are great coolers... just not for SLI. I would only recommend a cooler of this size for single card setups, sorry.

Thanks for posting those pictures, they helped me realize I just can't do that...I am positive it would be too close to my zalman 9700 cpu cooler, I wouldn't have found those pics on my own.

Something that needs to go out in the back? Get an Accelero by Arctic Cooling

IIRC they use the exhaust method.

I looked around and can't find them fitting a 7600GT
post #9 of 9
who says ya just can't make one fit?

I had the same problem of finding an dual slot solution, and sided with a silinex

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835226017

It dropped my temps about 10-15 degrees over stock cooler. It is also silent and is quite easy to install (as with everything, don't listen to the newegg reviews, those guys tend to be 10 year old morons). Not outside exausting, but it does the trick.

This vantec might do the trick, though I don't know how well it will work. It says universal, but the page might be old, and it could only be "universally" compatible with the 6 series and older.

Enjoy the move to 3rd party 7600GT cooling
