9800 GT cooler advice!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I know this has probably been covered time and time again, but I'm posting anyway. I'm looking for a good cooler for my EVGA 9800 GT (dual slot cooling). As of now I have her clocked at 750mhz core (stock=600) and 1062 memory (stock=900). The GPU temps idle at 39c and hit 50c under full load with stock cooling (I reseated with AS5). I'd like to find a better performing cooler so I can push the GPU a bit more.

You should grab a Thermaltake DuOrb, those thing can chill ANYTHING!!! Your temps aren't awful though, I've seen some cards idle at 50c and load at 80. A better cooler is always better, but I just want you to know that those temps aren't really dangerous, you don't need to worry if in the end, you're unable to get better cooling.

The GFXchilla is awesome if you ask me, for 20 bucks none of the others can compare. Before i get flamed i didnt say the others were bad, and i know there are better ones. Im saying for 20 bucks none of them can touch this cooler.

The du orb is great if you can stand the noise.

Temps are real good, agree with the above.
Your card would self-destruct before you have to worry about redzone temps.

Yes, but he stated that he wants to push his card farther.

I like the DuOrb, but for the price you can't beat the GFXChilla.
