Testing:

To test this device, I used it in the stock configuration so that the second fan could reach the blower motor on the XFX Radeon HD 6970. Testing methodology is the same used to find temperatures in video card reviews. The temperature was monitored for 20 minutes during the idle durations and 15 minutes during the load durations. The testing was done twice, once at stock, and again with the card overclocked to help determine any differences. The testing was then repeated again with the Titan Dual X Holder.

 

Testing Setup:

 

Settings:

  • Monitoring with MSI Afterburner
  • GPU Stability test 1920x1200 8xAA in MSI Kombuster
  • 15 minute load duration
  • 20 minute idle duration
  • Temperature measured in degrees Celsius

 

 

 

The temperatures were really close at stock. The blower motor may have operated slighty slower with the Dual X Holder, but the video card fan profile is targeted to operate at these temperatures. Overclocked results showed 2°C less on both. This is not a situation where I would use this device. It would serve better with a passive heat sink, a system containing multiple cards, or to cool the back of a card off. There are precautions that need to be taken when doing this however, since the device doesn't sit straight when installed, it actually sags. The frames could ground out on the back of a video card or an impeller could get caught. There is definitely potential in the right circumstances, but in this case the chance was minor.
