hmm, another Tom's Hardware review. i have no idea how they managed to get their video card to 88°C with a Zalman on it. the highest mine has ever been was 72° while playing DiRT with my mild overclock.

MrBungle, your X1900XTX uses the R580 core while a X1950XT/XTX uses the R580+. X1950XT/XTXs run hotter than the X1900XT/XTXs because of this, that is why the VF900 is sufficient enough to cool yours. The quote I have in my previous post pretty much explains it. Here is the link from where I got the quote.

i thought only the x1950xtx uses the R580+ core and x1950xt uses the R580?




i am planning to get the accelero x2 since its cheaper and in almost all benchmarks i have seen, the accelero x2 out performs the vf900 in quietness and how well it cools.

tooo bad the accelero doesn't look as good as the vf900.

so unless someone comes in here and say the vf900 is better than the accelero x2 with valid information, im going with the accelero x2

i've never owned an Accelero, so i can't say for sure. all i know is that they're ugly as sin and i wouldn't be caught dead with one in my case

i've read Newegg reviews that say the Zalman performs better. also, the link you provided us with had the Zalman running 15°C cooler than the Accelero.

Futuredrifter is obviously right about the different cores in the 1950/1900 series, but i don't think it changes the fact that a VF900 works better than the stock cooler in either series.

in any case, make sure you post a review of whatever you decide to get after you get a chance to put it through the paces . you'll be able to help future generations of OCNers with your info.

in the link i provided is the x1800 instead of the x1900xtx/x1950xt


MrBungle, can you tell me the temperatures your getting on your x1900xtx? they both use R580 so i think i will get temperatures similiar to yours.

okay. i have finally decided. 6 people told me to go VF900 and 2 to go accelero x2 and on other forums people also told me to get the VF900.

i am first going to get the VF900(because of how it looks =P) than when i have enough money i will buy the accelero x2 also. than i can finally review these 2 products on an x1950xt

i am soooooooooooooooooo disappointed at how the vf900 cooled my x1950xt. its true that it is extremely quiet but it cools worst than the stock cooler.

Stock cooler: 100% fan speed
idle=56C
load=74C
VRM load=62C

VF900: 100% fan speed
idle=44C
load=82C
VRM load=90C

whats even worst about this cooler is that is expells heat inside the case instead of outside so it heats up my opteron 144 to 47C
