Default GeForce 8800 GTS/GTX Cooler Comparison

We take a look at two aftermarket alternatives to the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS/GTX's stock cooler, the VF1000 LED from Zalman and the Hurricane HC92 from ZEROTherm. See which one took top honors in our testing!

You can read the article here and discuss it here!
Best Regards,

Default forgot one...

Why didn't you add the "Thermaltake duorb" to your tests? It's a 35$ cooler that could've won this match...

I guess because under full load the duorb could not compete.

Seriously, we could have tested any number of coolers. We simply tested what we had in the office. The argument could be made for the Thermaltake cooler, Thermalright, Arctic Cooling... like I said, there are a lot of coolers out there. Sorry for not including more.
