the silencer might cool less effectively vs the zalman with ur panaflow, how ever it should be quite equal im not sure about that. the plus for the silencer is that the hot air gets pushed out the case, whereas the zalman will keep the hot heat inside ur case, and add to ur cpu, psu temps, and possi...

wow 68 C idle??? ouch. IMO put a zalman fanmate on it at 5v, works like a charm, its like a sock was stuffed into the NV5's mouth. but don't wory, 68C idle is alrgiht, just make sure u dun load over 100C, remember 6800 cooldown for the gpu is at 120C :o

yep im running it at around 6-7 volts on a zalman fanmate. at that voltage its pretty much quiet to my ear. ur temps will go up though, but no matter the 6800s have a gpu cooldown at 120 C

my highest temp is 73 under load, so no worries.

the top part of the cooler looks like it has been extended outwards to fit the NB heatsink and the CPU heatsink to accomidate the CPU heatsink size. i think thermalright would try their hardest to keep their range of coolers compatibale with each other. lets hope they do :?

i guess if u have the fan blow it would go against the back of the card.

i think it would be better if it sucked the air so that air goes upward towards the case fan, cpu, and psu.
