All I have to say is no.....I have heard nothing but BAD <---- (that's in caps...caps = serious *****)
The Zalman VF700-CU is a sexy air cooler. It's the best air cooler if you ask me. I had one and it rocked. I've also heard good things about the Thermalright Video Cooler.
But to get back on topic...don't cut corrners when it comes to WCing. If you're going to do it do it right. $78 is about about a 1/3 of an amazing system and a bit under 1/2 of a decent system that will cool your CPU and GPU with WAY (note the caps again) better temps then that POS.
well actually, I read a review on this today. And really the only difference between a Tide water and a Arctic Cooler is the Temperatures, the TideWater keeps it about 5C-8C lower than most air coolers but your basically paying $40-$60 for somthing that you really don't even need, in the review, they were overclocking an X800 Pro, with the stock cooler at 100% speed, they got a maximum core clock of 582MHz, with the TideWater they got a maximum core clock of 591MHz, now please tell me that you aren't willing to pay up to $60 bucks for a 9MHz increase for your videocard, becuase if you are you aren't very smart.
As well as not making that much of a difference in overclocking, you still have to get ramsinks, with the Arctic Silencer,it comes with ramsinks (part of the heatsinks copper base) so you don't have to worry about that, trust me. Get an Arctic Silencer or a Zalman VF700-Cu.
