AT 9800 PRO AIW Cooler

Hey guys ! How are you ? WarAnakin, XG WarCats modder, here. I want to ask you something. I want to buy a strong cooler for my ATI 9800 PRO AIW. Noise is not interesting me, what i need is something that can severely downgrade the temperature. I think that this might be the place where i can get my answers.

Waranakin mate, the two that spring to mind are the Zalman 9800 cooler, and the Arctic cooling.

The Arctic Cooling ATI silencer is here http://www.arctic-cooling.com/vga2.php?idx=11

It is a very decent cooler, low maintenance, extremely quiet (silent compared to any hard disks), and it performs very well. Due to the outside exhaust, it will cool your whole system by up to 3 or so degrees, while bringing your 9800 down considerably.


The better option is the Zalman. This cooler is just brilliant. http://www.pccasegear.com/prod1812.htm

It is rated to considerably outperform stock coolers, on not just the 9800Pro, but also, the X850XTPE and 6800 Ultra Extreme.

So, its capable of cooling the fastest and hottest cards in the world well, so think of what it could do for a 9800 Pro. It is just as quiet as the ATI silencer, but performance is much better. If I were buying a GPU cooler, I would get this.

Zalman heatpipes are ok, but do not allow for overclocking. They are not performance coolers, they are silent coolers. It will be better than stock, and silent, but will not cool as well as the active Zalman.

The active zalman is virtually silent as it is though, quieter than a HDD and muc better than the stock cooler. On top of that, it performs extremely well.
