Default Graphics Card Cooling Q.

I have a Radeon 9800 pro 128mb clocked at 411/371Mhz. If I was to buy an 'Arctic Cooling REV3 VGA Silencer' (link below) would I need to buy additional memory heatsinks as well?

If anyone is currently using the Arctic Cooling REV3 VGA Silencer, can they reply. Thanks

I've heard its decent, will mos def do a better job than the one you were supplied with, and for less than a tenner isnt it worth it?

I say wait to see if anyone on the forums uses it but i recon it looks good.

that looks cool if you do decide to buy let me know how it works i may buy one. in my opinon (spelling?) RAM heatsinks are just a waste of cash unless you are overclocking to the maximum

the cooler covers the ram.

u can put on ramsinks anyway.


it's better to put on ramsinks but i dunno wat u gonna do.

if ur gonna overclock the hell out of it sure use ramsinks.


but the cooler works wihtout ramsinks as well.

do as u wish.
