EVGA 8800GT AKIMBO cooler

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if anyone has one of these coolers and what the results where. I have been looking at getting one and EVGA no longer carries the cooler . I'm wondering if it is worth the trouble hunting one down.

Here's a review Bluedevil did on his Akimbo cooler. Seems like it has pretty good results, although, I don't think it is really worth the hassle of trying to find one. Might as well just go for a Duorb or Accelero.

Evga discontinued it, but there are much better coolers out on the market.
