sooooo... does the fan mate mount inside or outside the case? because i hate opening my side panel just to change the speed and i also hate something daggling out of my case.. maybe i should just keep it at max speed all the time.

The Zalman VF900 sucks for X1950XT/XTXs. Get the Accelero x2.

Shamelessly stolen from TPU,

Quote:
Performance wise the AcceleroX2 and the VF900CU perform almost the same (leave the VF700ALCU/CU out for now please), on the X1950PRO, however differences appear when you install this on the X1950XT and X1950XTX, why? Well checking the performance of fellow TPU'ers point out that the VF900CU is better at taking lower TDPs when compared to the AcceleroX2. What does this mean? For the X1950PROs, the VF900CU performs a bit better, whilst on the R580+ (X1950XT, XTX) the VF900CU fails to outperform the stock cooler, while the AcceleroX2 delivers good performance. To explain this, the AcceleroX2 has more surface area to dissipate heat, while the VF900CU has less, also, the heatpipes have cycles and when it gets too hot, the cycles slow down and the heat transfer worsens. Since there is no direct contact between the copper fins and the base for the VF900CU, the heatpipe's slowing/less heat transfer begins to heat it up (its not so severe at it sounds though). The AcceleroX2 does not have such a problem as the aluminium fins are in direct contact with the base, you have to consider the fact that Aluminium transfers heat much faster whilst Copper stores more but sucks at transfer; there is a drawback in the minimilistic usage of material for the VF900CU.
Coming from someone who used the VF900, it just plain sucked. I was getting terrible load temps. I ended up getting a TT Tidewater 5 days later, I regret wasting my money on it because of my lack of research.

coming from someone who still uses a VF900, you must have put it on wrong. like i said, i'll play CoD2 online at 55°C

Krazie, you can do whatever you want with the FanMate. you can leave it inside your case, the cable is long enough to route it outside your case onto your desk... you don't even need to hook it up if you don't want to. you can just plug the fan directly into your motherboard. or you can plug it into your case's fan controller if you have one. ther are several options. i use the FanMate because i like having control over its speed.

the zalman has a fan speed controller


And when I had my FS-V7 (Fatality VF700) it idled at 48c and full load at 700/999 69c

My video card, before it died, had a VF900CU and it's awesome, temps are 25c below stock idle and load, lol

i think that HR-03 is a joke. why not just cut a hole in the side of your case so you can put a car radiator on it?

for best air cooling with a reasonable price, get a Zalman VF900. if extreme overclocking is your thing, consider the Tidewater that Drifter was talking about.

you don't have your case listed in your sig. Zalmans, like all air coolers, benefit from a well ventilated case. i have a side fan blowing on mine and i'm sure it doesn't hurt.
