Cooling the 8800GT; best solution?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well since the Zalman VF1000 LED and Z-Machine GV1000 require the use of the ZM-RHS88 which does NOT fit 8800GTs (only GTS, GTX and Ultras)... what do you guys use to cool your 8800GT?

And what kind of temps do you guys get (idle and load)?

With an SLI board the thermalright is not a good idea because if you have 2 GT's they will not fit with fans mounted.

The Accelero S1 has similar SLI issues.

thermaltake Duorb is only 4C worse than the thermalright and works great with sli (and does not need you to purchase a separate fan)

I have 2 of them and neither exceeds 47C under load.

Seeing as you have an SLI ready motherboard, you should plan ahead.

Any of the new coolers will do fine. I have the old vf900 on mine and it works well. Mines oc'd and bios volt modded too so its a little hotter than normal and the vf900 still takes care of it.
