Abit Siluro GF4 4200


Ok guys I have the Abit Siluro GF4 Ti4200 128 vid card and I was wondering what is the best cooling solution for it (not watercooled)? I was looking at that GF4 cooler from thermaltake but I wanted to know which was the best cooler so I could crank up the Mhz .

The Cooljag 1u is a very popular cooler.

To bad you don't have the OATES card, that has a sweet little cooler.

So is that the best one out there? Or is the Thermaltake cooler better? Wish they had a GPU heatsink review section like they do with CPU coolers that would help out alot hehe.

Yeah, that would be nice. I've seen a lot of people say its the best, but I haven't seen what Thermaltake offers for GPU coolers. If its an Orb style cooler then I would think the Cooljag cools better. Its a copper, low profile (P3 I think) cooler. It keeps my 9700 pro nice and cool
