Battlefield 2 is just around the corner, and so are summer temperatures. If you don't want to turn your expensive new PCI-X card into melted slag at the bottom of your case, and are unwilling to back off even a little on the overclock that was stable in the middle of February, then has SystemCooling got a review for you! The ThermalRight V1. With 2 fans on this heatsink, you will get temps that are comparable to a watercooled card. Only two caveats, one being that 6800 users may find the HS doesn't cover all the memory modules, and the second is that this will not fit in an SLI setup.
"Anybody that reads the reviews here at Systemcooling knows that we like Thermalright heatsinks, and over the last few years, they have reigned almost exclusively as king of the hill in CPU cooling power. Unlike many other cooling companies though, Thermalright has stuck pretty much to cooling only CPU's. That fact has been a matter of some lament, as there are many of us who wish we had the power of Thermalright to cool other areas of our system, especially video cards. Well, we don't have to wait any more. Today, we're taking an exclusive look at Thermalright's entry into the GPU cooling world, the V1. Cut from same cloth as their newest heatsinks, the XP series, the V1 could be just what the video-cooling geeks dream of - an XP-90 for their GPU."
