[dvHW] Thermaltake DuOrb supports 9600 GT - Page 2

post #11 of 20
i dont see the need for a second market cooler on the 9600gt unless your ocing to some outrages clock mine stayed very cool while i was using it even when i didnt have all my fans installed but this is a good (and ugly) thing to know.

What I meant was you stated:
"Perhaps I'm missing something, but the cards for which this new cooler would really be necessary (assuming it performs as well as advertised) would be the ones that are already double-slot cards."

For anyone who purchased an 8800GT when they 1st were released: reference card-single slot, v.1 fan, origional bios, could benefit from this cooler that has been out for a while already.

no, two fans would make it quieter, because they can both run at much lower speeds to achieve the same airflow as a single fan

The DuOrb can be somewhat loud:

That's why I like my VF900, cool and quiet.

the accelero also supports the 9600gt, they changed it on the website

I love my duOrb
post #20 of 20
I'll probably go with the Galaxy KAF2 model (formerly the OC model) of the 9600GT because of the low price and the dual slot cooler. Bigger cooler = lower temps = higher overclock assuming it's an effecient cooling solution. According to the hard-to-trust-reader-beware reviews on NCIX it's quiet (remember their 8800GT's?) and keeps the temps down even during overclocking.

I won't be running SLI anytime soon (if ever) so 1 slot, two slots, 3 slots...bring it on.
