Yeah copper slugs are getting very expensive...The copper top they are supposed to be making for the GTX will be an after-market type thing, it will still come with an aluminum top and you would have to buy the copper top extra...


Yeah it really seems like it would of been just as cheap or cheaper to use delrin...I really don't understand it...

...Uni-Sink 8800GTX

Hey thats just me I wouldn't nor couldn't put aluminum in my loop..
1. Let me know when they are in stock.
2. They don't work. Because of the fabrication processor of memory, they are all different heights off the board. The differences are substantial enough that almost all owners of the UniSink report poor or no contact on most of the memory.
3. There really is not much cooling surface on those unisinks.

I agree on Delrin (actually, I thought it was Delrin).

I believe they excluded the MOSFETs because:

1. It helps ensure compatibility on future videocards.
2. Mosfets don't get that hot.
3. Cost.

Paul, I think that number 3 was the absolutely most important aspect of the card- It would cost a lot of money to cover something like that, so far away from the block.

I started a topic at Swiftech's forums in the hope that gabe will shine some sort of light on the issue- Hopefully we can get confirmation that it is(not) in production.

Well, actually I think #1 is the most important. If you shell out $110 for a block that will only work on the G80... you have wasted a lot of money.

But if the block will easily transition over to the G92... (like it should) Then we will all be happy with our $110 well spent.

Looks like it may be the best performer, but I'm with Ira on the aluminum component. Call it alumaphobia or whatever...I've got it and you won't find me putting anything aluminum into my loop regardless of coatings.

It would be like running a patch in the back tire of my streetbike. I'm sure it would be perfectly fine, but just knowing it's there would bother me

However I am impressed they have been able to up the performance gain, non of the other full coverage style blocks even come close.

Glad to see they've been able to reduce pressure drop and improve thermal performance at the same time

OT: Hey Burn,

I just noticed you're a Fear map modder. Ever come across any of mine?
Doom1.4M - Original Doom map with my own twist
DoomE7m9? Can't remember the right letters now, this was my own take on a CTF map
BlizzardGap - My ice map, another CTF map

Havn't been into it for a while, but those were three that I did.

Well, you see lots of people springing for EK and DangerDen blocks that are only designed for the 8800 series or 2900XT series, don't you? I would love it if this block was compatible with the G92 series, that'd be incredible. But I don't think they have any reservations with making another block for G92.

@ Martin- No, I haven't. Been real busy with my RMA back to abit in order to get an actual working PC Come into the Official FEAR thread and have a peek at what we've been doing with maps and stuff!

This was a response from a guy over at Swiftech's forums:

Quote:
The top of the Stealth passively cools the RAM etc; Delrin can't do this, and for this reason there can never be a Delrin top. Introducing multiple parts to seperate the ram cooling and the top would only add cost for no benefit, in which case you would be better going with the MCW60+ramsinks.

lol back to the mcw60 + ramsinks idea...

so you would like a delrin/acetal top to reduce weight/cost? (I think that's what acetal is used for, please correct me if I'm wrong, I asked on another thread but there was no response)

Ahh...going to have to check that out, been a while since I've done any mapping and I"m always up for a good game.

Good find on the design of the stealth, I always assumed cooling was at least partially done with the liquid
