Graphics card coolers

  i've no idea 11:08 17 Jul 2006

Anyone know of a (preferrably silent) cooler to fit a gainward GEforce 7900GT 512mb PCX grapics card?

Is it fitted with a Zalman VF-900 cooler at the moment?

No. Its a gainward high performance cooler?

Thanks. Will these fit? Are they easy to install (instructions?)

The cooler listed by ArrGee, is one of the best liked amonst gamers. Very effective and very quiet.

The arctic cooling fans are also excellent, however, now they don't shoot the hot air out the back but displace it within your case (as does the reference cooler) so your case has to have good airflow. While it is extremely quiet, it is not as effective for cooling as the zalman vf-900, though it still beats the ref cooler.

Hope this helps.

i'm not sure which coolers will fit the card

Probably a really simple answer but I've spent an hour on this already -

Have connected up media pc to plasm tv via DVI - HDMI cable. Can't get the setting right as the desktop overflows the screen.

What settings should I be looking at?

Have you checked your settings on the plasma?

what's that got to do with a graphics card cooler.

I meant to open another thread (which I have now done) to ask the second question.

Still not convinced these coolers will fit my card!
