Evga Akimbo Woot!!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Think i'm gonna buy one later today Its awesome.

My max load right now is 60c I'm not to happy about the RED color choice I like the Blue more.

maybe this will take me down to 45c load
I idle at 42c right now with fan at 75%

Its gotta be worth the price And i LOVE dual slot videocards. my card right now looks like a sissy 6800GS

Oh you're just buying the kit. You know you would be better off using an aftermarket cooler. The Akimbo cooler is good for a stock cooler. Better yet, when you get it...post some temps.

Ehh, I was gonna get the DUORB cooler but I like the look of this cooler more and I maxed my oc on a stock cooler and never go over 60c load so I don't care to much, Im just looking for looks now with Ok Performance.

Really....ah well. Everyone has different tastes. I love the look of the DuOrb. Hell I actually bought it just because it looked cool. I didn't even look at a review until 5 days after I bought one. Then I got the 2nd one. So far it's been a good investment. Remember to post some temps with it though

I always thought they were ugly. Just like the Accellero S1 and S2...those have got to be the most horrid looking coolers ever. Though the ThermalRight series pretty much take the cake as far as ugly goes.
