Looking into either of these coolers for my 7950GT. Looking for some pros and cons for both. Thanks.

For price, VF900. But for performance, the HR-03 or HR-03 Plus (Even BETTER!) is definitely the way to go!

The HR-03 is like slapping a U120 onto your GPU, it's the ultimate in GPU air cooling! Add a Delta or FM92 on it and you'll be set!

Sorry, this was supposed to be in the Cooling sub-section, not up here. It was late last night, wasn't thinking too clearly.

Anyways, isn't the HR-03 Plus is supposed to be 8-series compatible only? As for the other two, any real world temperature readings to compare? How about the idle/load deltas?

Hi there.What part of West palm Beach?I live in Lake Worth.I use the vf900 in my 7950gt and got great results.Temps in the mid 40c volt mod @ 1.5 and 2.25,and oc to the 700's and high memory too.If you interest in volt mod and crazy oc that puppy let me know.I never use the hr-03,but look good in especial with a delta on it.

The HR-03 plus i just for the 8 series.
How much room do you have in your case? If space is not an issue go for the regular HR-03. It takes up pretty much every single slot. You can mount the card two ways, but I found with the plus it works best when the fan is blowing up on the core and memory.

EDIT: Oh and if you go that route, just strap a 120 to it. Forget those wimpy 92's. Keeps my 8800 at a nice 43C.

Alright, I think I'm going to go with the Zalman then. Currently my 7950GT idles around 57C and load temps are 70C+, not sure how to check temps while fullscreened in a game yet.

WHAT?!?!?

How do you get away wit 70C load temps!?!?

My 7900GS (keep in mine, 4 less pipes on the same process-node) hits 85C stock with BF2142!

And after AS5'ing it and putting a fan right underneath it blowing air up at the sink, I still get 81C load!


I need new cooling. GRR.

I said 70 or more, I'm not sure if its hit 80 or not, I don't check while fullscreened


As long as I have no artifacting and no crashes, I don't really mind how hot it gets.
