Thermalright HR11 backside vid cooler

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well I am very surprised here, I've used the HR11 ever since I got the 8800 Ultra Extreme and have had no trouble whatsoever keeping this card OC'd to 683/1713/1188. I have since replaced my board and have the audio card installed in position 1 pcie x1 so I could not use the HR11. Needless to say the card either overheats at those same timings or I just haven't done enough minor detail bios stuff to it as it won't even complete a 3dmark06 at those same timings, which tells me this HR11 did a hell of a job dissipating heat. It's previous board and situation had the heatsink almost 1.0" into the rear panaflo ultra high speed exhaust fan on the rear of the case sucking hot air right out. I wonder if it's the new board and pcie slot frequency or just the heat. I'll have to go watercooling I think to keep it at the same specs OC wise it seems as the HR11 just won't fit anymore even with the new coolit elite coming in for install. Crazy ths little heatsink did such a great job.

quick pic of it's position, new board has first slot for audio card taking away it's room to move direction towards rear case, no other position works unfortunately maybe the complete opposite with the coolit elite and going towards the front of the case...I'll have to see as it's definately worth the cost of it for cooling properly it seems.

Rather than go with water cooling, you could take the much cheaper option and go with the cooler I used, the Arctic Cooling Accelero Extreme 8800. I made a worklog of how I got on with it here: http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling...adventure.html

It really does a fantastic job at lowering temperatures and as you have an XFX card, if you need to return/replace it, just make sure you put the original cooler back on or include it with the card you're sending back. They don't mind you using after market coolers, but do want the original back.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about that cooler, though.
