Using a Point of View 8600GT card:
Point of View 8600GT
...it have reasonably quiet fan, but of course far too noisy for my liking. So I looked out for something that will fit well the reasonably small card, preferably overlaping ith 92mm fan over the top, so it cool a bit the NB heatsink after the card...
But much to my surprise, something like Arctic Cooling Accelero S2
are too big. The heatsink is huge
, a 188x140mm (or 182x137 if you take their words: http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/disco ... l#techdata
) monster for a 120mm fan
... That is a bit overkill for the small and reasonably not too hot (TDP 40W, or so they say http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/198/ge ... 00-gt.html
So, are there something like the Accelero S2, but smaller... for a like 92mm fan out there?
I managed to find a Accelero L2 with reasonable 119x94 size, however the bottom does NOT look like that it can fit on my card AND there did not seems to be any suitable connections awailable, besides the GPU is at anged position on this card...http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/disco ... tml?c=2264
But at least it is smaller, yet it is unclear, if there is enought space for the caps that have to fit bello the heatsink. At least 14mm there must be, preferably 15 as the Accelero L2 have...
So I'm a bit stuck. Of course there are alternatives like Zalman VF1000, but this is again overkill AND also the heatsink did not feature big enought fan to cool the chipset too AND I want to be able to use quiet fan (preferably Noctua... or shall I get something even quietier there from the 92mm pool?) of my choice and not their fan...
