Quick question for the OP: can the fan of the VF3000F be connected directly to the video card fan connector or it will only go into the fanmate and a mobo fan connector?

thanks

only fanmate and a mobo fan connector. It's a regular 3 pin fan adapter.

this cooler looks like it does an awesome job, but as other have point out why does the nvidia version cost 30 dollars more than the ati version when they are the same with just different mounting

I compared my friend's ATI version of this cooler on his 5850. Only difference I can tell is my fan is actually way higher rpm then his. Which is nice, although noisy at high fan speed it still beats the stock cooler like nobody's business

How's it going man? I added you to my contacts in hope that I could contact you with a PM. Since that's not an option, I'll post here. I've already ordered 2 VF3000Fs for my 2 470s; but after seeing your post in Yokes29 AXP thread, I was wondering if I should order 2 AXPs instead. How significant are the differences between your readings and his? My VF3000Fs haven't arrived yet, so it wouldn't be a huge hassle to exchange them if I think it's worth it. What do you think? Thanks.
post #20 of 27
I picked up and tested a VF3000F last night. I have a case with an unusual orientation (Silverstone Fortress FT02B). Strangely, the VF3000F's performance is much worse when it's vertical than when it's horizontal. I believe this has been noted for other coolers in the past (used with the same case I have). There is a post somewhere on OCN where some reviewers noted this affect and even contacted Silverstone about it.

With my case flat on the ground (cooler as it would be on a typical test bench), using a GTX 470 clocked 825/1650/2000 with VF3000F, the max temp reached in Kombustor (Furmark) was 72C.

With my case upright (cooler vertical), same card and settings, the max temp reached was 92C, no better than the stock cooler.

Bottom line: this cooler requires a normal orientation and isn't a good choice if mounted vertically.
