Why is the Duorb not good with G80 cards?

Is it the design or is the duorb just a weak cooler?

The Arctic Cooling Accelero Extreme 8800 cooler is supposed to be pretty good with the 8800GTX. In fact if I could find one for sale anywhere I'd probably buy it.

The results look very misleading... almost rigged.


Thermalright HR-03 doesn't come with a fan, so the cooling is only as good as the fan(s) you put on it.

~1200 rpm doesn't equal 3x 2150rpm


But yeah, that cooler is HUGE.


Does the GTX really run that hot? 81C even with the HR-03 PLus?

Does seem a bit off, mine runs about 53C idle and 72C load with the stock cooler at 100%. Though I do have decent air flow in my case.

Everyone seems to love this cooler. I don't have one, but I've heard very few bad reviews
