Thats pretty good, but it depends if you have adequate airflow.
With a heatpipe design, with no fan, its the case that matters the most.

Default Re: VGA cooler

haven't seen that one, kinda looks like the ARCTIC COOLING Accelero S2 VGA Cooler...

I have this...

ZALMAN VF900

and may put it on my 4850 when it arrives, but people swear by this cooler on [H]ard|Forums...

ARCTIC COOLING Accelero S2 VGA Cooler

there's room for 2 fans too if you don't want passive cooling...

The best coolers such as the Thermalright HR-03, the Arctic Cooling S1 and the Thermaltake Duorb aren't tested in that test.
