5 out of 5 eggsI LOVE THIS CARD

Pros: well i got this card second hand when my gf6600gt was fried and i had to downgrade. when i saw the card i was worried about heat so i have hot glued a 120mm fan on to the and now it runs PERFECT with and avarge temp of around 45C and maxed out after playing FEAR or CS:S or HL2 ep1 at around 49C. i play HL2 ep1 with HDR MAxed AA 4x AF 4x at 30-40FPS

Cons: the GF 6600 are getting older.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth Every Penny

Pros: Though I don't recommend this card for heavy gaming, It's fantastic, if you're looking for an ultra quiet solution, which can provide excellent graphic performance in all, but heaviest gaming scenarios.

The only games I've placed are Flight Sim and Combat Flight Sim at the highest graphic settings and have had no issues with over-heating. However, I am running the card in a very well ventilated Cooler Master Centurion 5 case and have not over-clocked the card in any way.

Cons: As with any other passively cooled card, the GPU may run hot if you plan on using this card for heavy gaming, or installing if in an under ventilated case,

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card gets hot w/o good airflow

Pros: It's quiet and it runs HL2 and Half-Life 2 DM beautifully, but not as nice as my 7800. Did I mention it's quiet?

Cons: It gets unstable after five or six hours of HL2 DM. Objects start getting a pink and black hue and then checker like pattern. The longer you run it hot the worse it gets. My actively cooled RADEON 9800 Pro 128mb did not become unstable-but it was noisy. I have a Lian Li case with a PCI exhaust fan and it actually got hotter with the side window off. The GPU became unstable after only an hour of HL2 DM with the cover off. I had a temperature probe under the heatsink and it topped 57C and leveled out at 53C or so. I searched for sample pictures of artifacting. From what screenshots I found on the web, the 6600 did not have artifacting. I assume the pink and black patterns are due to overheating as they get worse the longer I played. Maybe that is a type of artifacting or other rendering problem.

Other Thoughts: Needless to say I ordered two PCI fans from Newegg (inexpensive) for each of my passive cooled GPUs. 24dB beats the high pitch whine of a VGA fan. I won't order mobos with chipset fans either. Most fans don't bother me. Just the ones that give you tinnitus. UNINSTALL your old display drivers before installing the new ones.

3 out of 5 eggsOK, but passive cooling isn't.

Comments: I also swapped the stock heatsink for a V-1, which works very well, but the 6600 is long in the tooth. I have a 3700+ proc clocked to 2772MHz and on 3dMark05 this card scored 2092 stock and 2348 overclocked with coolbits. I am going to upgrade this card fairly soon.

3 out of 5 eggsOK-But not great

Comments: This is a nice card, but like the other reviews, it can get hot and unstable. I swapped the heatsink for the new V-1 and now the card is very happy and so am I.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Heatsink

Comments: I was hoping to enjoy the benefits of a silenced vid card. Instead I got something with poor heatsink issues. When I pulled it out it so hot that I had to wait 30 minutes just to handle it with my hands.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor heatsink design

Comments: It quit on me after 2 days of working. The way heat sink designed I don't think it cold handle the load. It looked to me that there was a significant gap between heatsink and GPU, well it was filled with thermal grease but still. Also the way heat sink rests on rubber pads on memory chips made it crooked. One more thing if you have a motherboard with chipset cooler right under video card it would touch it. I've got MSI 6800 card instead and it had space between the card and north brigde cooler. Fan on MSI 6800 was not too loud but I did replace it for a Zalman copper cooler.

Newegg was very quick with RMA as usual.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect board for MCE 2005

Comments: - 0dB sound output as there isn't a fan
- S-Video out
- and its ASUS

Unfortunately I didn't realize it was a PCI Express, so had to RMA for an AGP version.
