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
i don't think i ever heard what kind of case you have, but if you have a side fan, try to use it as an exhaust instead of an intake.
i don't know what to say. i now have a pair of 1900XTXs in my case, each with its own Zalman, and i couldn't get them to 82Â°C if i tried. i know Drifter said the 1950's run hotter than the 1900's, but that doesn't seem right to me. the 1950's use less power than the 1900's. less power usually = less heat.
