lmao - It's the most expensive way to cause a fire, I guess.

I would've imagined if it were something like ASUSes passive cooling, it would suffice, but this? Nay.

XFX always does this, they know what they are doing. That heatsink is probably extremely well engineered and uses heatpipes and natural airflow in a computer to adequately get rid of the heat..

It probably gets sorta cooled indirectly from the CPU HS... but i wouldnt have that on a 7900 baby... it may be quieter, but doubles as a foot heater.<br />
<br />
Only low-low end cards/anything should have a HS without a fan... such as a X300, 5200FX and so on

Actually I have read a review on that card and apparently the heatsink works very well with the card only operating at a slightly higher temperature than a 7900 with active cooling.

XFX are pros, they wouldn't make this card, test it, and put it on the market unless it was pro. Thats a nice heatsink on there, and theres probably something doen to those chips to reduce the heat they put out. Time to search for some online reviews?

XFX knows what they did, and they know it works. Plus, isnt this core like cooler than the ones found in the 7900s?

Heres a review on the card <a href="http://enthusiast.hardocp.com/article.html?art=MTE3MSwxLCxoZW50aHVzaWFzdA==" target="_blank">LINK</a><br />
<br />
It works ok but it does get a little warm under load, i don't think it would have a problem in a case with as many fans as ours lol.

some people dont overclock (ie my Dad) and what a cool, quiet PC (ie my Dad!), a slightly underclocked, but silent, and still sodding quick graphics card caters to this<br />
<br />
....although this is coming from the person who's dad bought a brand new reserator - and only uses it to cool a stock X2 4400, never bothered with the GFX card, and still uses tons of fans <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" />

<i>We looked at the idle and full load GPU temperatures compared to the Radeon X1900 XT 256MB video card. The XFX GeForce 7950 GT 570M Extreme idles at 47c GPU temperature. The ATI Radeon X1900 XT 256MB idles at 53c. <b>Therefore the X1900 XT is six degrees hotter just idling.<br />
</b><br />
At full load the XFX GeForce <font color="Blue">7950 GT</font> recorded a temp of <font color="Blue">78c</font>, the Radeon <font color="Red">X1900 XT</font> at full load was <font color="Red">88c</font>. That is an entire 10 degree difference with the passively cooled video card actually chiming in with cooler temperatures on idle and full load. </i><br />
<br />
That says it all
