ZEROtherm GX815 Gamer Edition Vga Coolerccokeman -
I was pleasantly surprised with this product. I was not expecting the performance that it delivered. While that sounds bad, it isn't. The GX815 soundly beat the cooler that was installed on the test X1900XT. That cooler was an improvement over the stock heatsink in both noise and temperature reduction. It looks as though ZEROtherm has done its homework and provided the enthusiast market with a product that provides top level performance at a better price point than some of the other top tier manufacturers. With an idle temperature reduction of 10C, a load temperature reduction of 27C, and a case temperature reduction of 18C, how can you go wrong with this product? It looks like the other X1900XT card in the stable will lose its current cooling solution and have a ZEROtherm GX815 installed.
This is the first ZEROtherm product I have had experience with and if all of its products give these type of results, I will definitely look for its products again. If you need a GPU cooling solution that works, give this one a try. With the ease of installation, attractive price point, and temperature reductions, this product just works.
