Is PCI fan a good cooler for my incoming evga 6600gt AGP?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I ordered this PCI fan (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835888309 42cfm air flow ) along with the evga 6600gt, do you think it will be efficient to cool down my 6600gt when I load it?
Or should i spend $20 more to upgrade the fan/heatsink on that video card?

I heard that Zalman VF700-CU
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118117) is a very good cooler for VGA, but there are some compability issues with the 6600gt AGP. I wonder if anyone has any trouble with it hehe

For $5, thats not a bad deal. It'll lower your temps on your vid card maybe a couple degrees but don't expect miracles.

Personally I think blowers are a waste unless you don't have a rear exhaust fan already. I used to have one but after I took it out I actually got better temps because it was causing major negative air pressure in the case.

I used to have one of those fans. They provide a little cooling, but not bad for their price. Very noisy though.
