GPU Cooling

Post by hnzw_rui » Mon May 03, 2010 7:08 pm

Anyone here using an aftermarket GPU cooler? I'm not a gamer, hence, never really bought more than entry-level graphics cards (mostly just for HTPC use). Needed some GPU power for PCSX2, though, and also needed CUDA so I bought an XFX GT240 512MB GDDR5. The GPU seems to stay pretty cool, however, the noise is driving me nuts. Any suggestions for a quiet aftermarket cooler that would fit inside a Silverstone Sugo SG05 case (basically max dual-slot, 9" length)? Thanks!

You should be fine with something from; Zalman, Arctic Cooling or Thermalright.
