a little thing to keep in mind.... bigger = better temps....

therefore if you can fit it... they are better....

yea I'm not too worried about the temps, I don't overclock it and it usually below 50 where the comp is so I just want something small and discrete.

sadly it is hard to find a small aftermarket cooler....

since 99% of the people buying them are trying to get better temps....

so they are normally large.....

That one is way to small for a gt240 ~ 9600gt, i'd reccomend something larger if you want that card to last more than a week. Im just curious why is has to be so small and descrete? It is going into a case hidden away in the end, a larger cooler would use a larger fan which would result in a quieter pc..

I received it today and installation went as smooth as ever, it is exactly what I was looking for thanks everyone again. I ended up only paying $11 for it so I consider it a steal. My idle temps dropped from 30 degrees Celsius to 21 degrees Celsius and full load temps went from 48 down to 40. Gonna add my motherboard to my water cooling loop tomorrow and we will see how low the system temps get. Thanks again.
