Hey everyone! Im a n00b over in the intel aircooling section, and decided I wanted to squeeze the most out of Age of Conan with my EVGA 8800GTS 640mb... So I luckily stumbled upon Manyak selling a thermaltake DuOrb for 27$ shipped and what an increase in cooling performance! Granted due to the card no longer routing it's exhaust to the back of the case I had to rework my front fans, but I just swapped my lower intake to exhaust, as I already have two intake fans on the window (one blowing directly at the card) and a 120 20mm intake at the top in lieu of 3 5inch drive covers, which is also cooling my HDD =)

Thusly here is some proof. Using RivaTuner's monitor, and being very confused about the conversion between minutes to milliseconds, I logged temperatures while running a full test (the one that gives you actual marks) in 3dmark06. I began logging a few minutes previous to hitting go on the test to ensure idle temps were logged, with ambients between 38-40C. Note, all temps are in celcius.






comments? =) Advice on overclocking this card more? It's stable through all of 3dmark06's tests...no hangs...nothing. The newest ATItool won't run with the newest drivers for this card...so screw atitool until they come out with a new version.
