1st post, but have been reading for at least 6 years.
When I was building my pc I've used only the stuff recommended here, and got a
However, I've recently changed some stuff and knew this would happen, but now I've got
a VTX 3D 4850 1gb gDDR5 graphics card that makes a lot of noise (the rest of my pc is
so quiet you can hardly notice it's running).
I haven't been reading reviews for the last 5 years (when Scythe was all the rage, I got
MUGEN on my CPU), and I've always had this fear that I'll buy a heatsink/fan that won't fit my card.
Can anyone help me out with my card?
Just a few pointers/extra questions.
Scythe Musashi isn't available locally, but Setsugen 2 is. Is that any good?
A bit cheaper is the passive Accelero S1+. Will that fit and be enough without a fan?
Extra fan is $10 - but I own a few Scythe fans (got a new slim 800rpm 12cm, that's
the lowest air flow model that they have I think) - can I fit that thing on or just buy
the original fan (1 or two?!).
The card is currently at 51-52°C @ IDLE (124F), and around 70°C @ LOAD (158F).
I could get away with 10% underclocking even.
Sorry for a huge post, but I need to get rid of this noise fast, and you're the only crow
around that understands what I'm going through.
Thanks and cheers from Croatia!
