Also, they typically tend to exhaust the hot air straight up to my cpu and stopping by my SB/NB on the way out.
Find me a cooler that does what this does
for $30 bucks while tossing the heat outside and I'll consider it.
As for water, it's also a cost justification thing. A buddy of mine spent $450 on some top shelf equipment, but the gains were not 300% better...more like 25%.
Basically, I'm getting old and tired of mucking w/ my pc. I don't even play games as much as I used to. So for now, a stock cooled 260 more than gets the job done. Heck, I haven't even downloaded the new L4D update...too busy w/ real life stuff. Hmmm...maybe I should just buy a console and be done w/ it. Haha.
PS. The ram on my card clocks just fine when I increase the fan speed from 40 to 60.
Find me that perfect $30 exhaust cooler!
Til then, I guess I'll check out the TIM job they did. After all, it's warranted, heh.
