Hi peeps,<br><br>
I was thinking of removing the standard cooler from my Gainward 7800 GTX and whacking on the Arctic Cooling NV Silencer 5 (Rev. 3). Has anyone got this on their 7800GTX? If so do you recommend it? Are there any other 7800GTX GPU coolers out there that are better than this one? Read a few good reviews about this one.<br><br>
Cheers JP

I had a Arctic Cooling NV Silencer 5 (Rev. <b><i>2</i></b>) on a 6800Ultra, it worked a treat with load temp at around 65°c and doing it silently (wel i could'nt hear it).<br><br>
And the other thing is that it takes the heat out the back<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
I would get another one but my NorthBridge HSF gets in the way<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown">

I'm thinking of the same model but am hesitant because of the size specs.<br />
<br />
Does anyone foresee a problem using two of these with dual 7800 GTXs in Sli on an Asus A8N-Sli Premium?

no you wont have any problems using the Arctic Cooling NV Silencer 5 in your SLI rig. you may have to have your DTS xplosion card in the bottom most PCI slot if you don't already. I also noticed that the metal support, the shiny allium one that runs the length of the 7800's gets really warm.. I would get a set of these <a href="http://www.frozencpu.com/products/3285/ram-21/Zalman_ZM-RHS1_VGA_RAM_Heat_Sinks.html?tl=g40c18s236" target="_blank">http://www.frozencpu.com/products/32...?tl=g40c18s236</a> and run them the length of both cards. This will add a really cool look and also be a great place to disapate some more heat as it will put it right in to the air flow channel.<br><br>
Can't wait to see those temps drop!
