Loud do you not have stock cooling on it as it is? I have an ati 9800 pro Aiw also and its dead silent with the stock cooling. And for that arctic silencer specificly i have heard to many reviews of fried cards, I was going to get that one my self but I don't want to lose my card.

One thing though I do have a blower right by my card so that minght be keeping it cool enough ot stay quiet but idk.

this is what I am thinking of getting unless some one has a better idea.

and a few more heatsinks for the ram.

Well the cards frying is only true for this silencer all the others seem fine. This one happens to be the cheapest of the series and sadly the only one I know of that could fit the all in wonder I have. I have nothing against the silencer series it just this one i have heard horrible things about. Here are some of the reviews taken from newegg.

"Pros: the fan switch is a great idea for quiet or high performance operation and the install was rather easy...


Cons: after following the instructions to the letter I booted my pc back up and it got about half way into booting windows and I heard a small pop and the screen went black... never came back on... my 9700p... More »
ro is now a paperweight ... thanks switzerland ... stick to making knives and stay away from PC components"

"Pros: Great price, and fast shipping, always a plus with newegg....


Cons: Killed my 9800 pro after 1 week...thank goodness this baby still has a warranty...... More »


Other Thoughts: I suppose i learned my lesson...ill just upgrade the card next time"

Hi bx510,

Welcome to overclock.net. As for the Arctic Cooler for your 9800 AIW.

IMHO, it's the best cooler going. I have one on my X850Pro and love it. Dropped the temps 5-8degC from stock, is very quiet and was easy to install (just read the manual). It covers all of the ram as well. My older 9700Pro stock fan gave up the ghost after about 2 years. I put an Arctic cooler on it, and like the energizer bunny, it's still going and much cooler now...

I hope this helped, :-)
