Quote:
Prolimatech introduced the Black Series variant of its MK-26 GPU heatsink that went on sale last September. The variant features matte black anodized aluminum fins, while retaining the chrome finished nickel-plated copper heat pipes that produce a nice contrast. Designed to handle thermal loads as high as 320W, the MK-26 is a dual aluminum fin-stack heatsink, which uses six heat pipes to convey heat from a nickel-plated copper block. A pair of 140 mm fans (not included) can be attached to the heatsink. individual heatsinks for memory and VRM components are included; as are thermal pads and a tube of TIM. Prolimatech updated the GPU compatibility list of the MK-26 to include the recently launched GeForce GTX TITAN. The company did not release pricing or availability details.
This makes the Artcic cooling ones look bad , but the Accelero stuff has better performance

After owning a card that eats three slots, I do not approve. It would look with with a black Megahalems though

It's graphics card OR a jumbo jet, you decide.

ASUS releases a 3-slot card, the community rejects it viciously yet buys it anyway
Prolimatech releases a cooler that takes up to 4-slots, the community calls it cool.

OT: 320W.... Why does that feel like its not going to be enough for us overclockers?

Because you get the choice of whether you want to use this cooler or the stock 2-slot cooler.

I know, I just wanted to say that.

Watch this thing cost like $80-90.

i still don't see why they don't put sinks on both side of the gpu. just use a thicker thermal pad on the back. i have done it before and it does indeed put off heat. Top cards usually have a slot spare since a lot of boards have 1x slot at very top. also for gods sakes can i have rear mounted PCIe 6 pin connectors on my graphics please. I perffer to hide my cables.

Because motherboards or setups that have cards almost touching because of small spacing/higher card count the fins/cooling would get in the way of the above card.

Your the 7th poster, OP included... These 6 people make up the say for OCN. Good to know, I hadn't noticed that before

I kid, I kid... I know what you meant

OT. I'm surprised you don't see a lot more VGA coolers or odd designs out there yet. Why not take advantage of the wasted space on the back and wrap some heatpipes around and have another fin stack there? There needs to be some thinking outside of the box. I mean, look at those CPU coolers with stacks over the ram and a fan pointing down at the ram. Helps CPU cooling a bit and helps cool ram a bit. Not a bad idea.

So lets have a company make a dual slot cooler that also has heatpipes wrap over the card and more stacks on the back. Would help cool both the chip and the back of the card a little...

it would look great with a matching CPU cooler

i think we got a little spoiled with Dwood's cooling solution (aka "the mod" of using an AIO cpu cooler)

I am looking for a new cooler for my 7950 TF3. What do you guys think - This one? Or the ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme 7970?

I used an Accelero on my 5850 and it did help bring down temps from ~90 load down to 50 load and being far more quiet.

My 7950 Sapphire Dual-X never breaks 60 and is whisper quiet. No need for an aftermarket cooler, especially such a behemoth that's gonna warp the PCB.

The black heatsink does look sexy though

Yeah, my card runs pretty hot. Even with a small OC 1025/1600 stock voltage it runs 71-72c playing Crysis 3. I want to OC some more , but need a better cooling solution. What's this Dwood thing - Anyone have a link? I have seen it before, but I need to know where to buy a bracket. I could move my H60 to the card and pickup a H100i for my cpu.
