TT rates it at 16dba ... but I can't tell if it's on or off to tell you the truth.

The Iceberq was the same way. Silent ... but the ND1's heatpipes and larger fan make it a better performer.

In the review, I tested on a uber hot card ... 1.5 volt modd'd 7900GT at a stupid overclock ... was blown away by the results. I'm not a big fan of thermaltake, but since I always loved the Silencer series, and since this is obviously a knockoff of that line ... I decided to try it. I'd say they even improved on the AC Silencer cards quite a bit.

Another thing: I would never use a VGA cooler that does not utilize an exhaust function; I'm too concerned about overall system temps and with an exhaust cooler, you can knock at least two degrees off of your CPU/MB temps if your running a hot, fat VGA card.

During load testing, the temps coming out of the exhaust port are around 130F ... (my infrared thermometer doesn't do celcius, sorry).

No way do I want *that* being blown around my case ...

You'll probably have to do some cutting/sanding to get the ND1 to fit on a 7900gs.

@ onelivestarfish

I cannot return your PM until you clear some of your stored private messages ...

System won't let me.

Need to delete some stuff mang!

But the answer to your question is, no ... I sold it to a fellow OCN member already.

Check this other thread: http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/2140...t=ND-1+sanding

Look for posts from "da9pwnsu" ...

He had to sand a bit of the ND-1's plastic housing to get it to make good contact with his GPU, but I think it may be an issue of vendor more so than model.

Read that thread and PM him if you have any specific questions ... he's having good results with his.

According to TT ... it's designed for *all* 79xx coolers, including the 7900GS.

Of course, vendor to vendor ... you have some capacitor discrepancies here and there.

Check the above referenced thread ... the fellow using it on his PNY made it work.

I don't think it would be fair to say that *all* 7900GS's will have the same issue; his case is the first I've read and I've scoured the net quite handily researching the cooler before buying.

Others using EVGA 7900, 7950's that I've talked to haven't had any issues.
