sweet deal, sweet card

DIAMOND Viper Radeon X1950PRO 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card X1950PRO256PCIE
DIAMOND Viper Radeon X1950PRO 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card X1950PRO256PCIE

Pros: Very good card for price range. got mine at Cir**t C**ty. haven't really tried to overclock or benching it yet. I installed one of the 2 ZALMAN VF900 I ordered onto it but left the backplate from the stock cooling. It fitted perfectly, better than leaving one side unprotected. Will recieve a Diamond card to crossfire them. It's a bugdet to midrange GPU but most of the time these are the hardware that are the most fun to play with.

Cons: Just one. It's the fan connection. The ZALMAN VF900 has a different fan connector than the x1950pro. I pulled the cap off of the GPU 3pin fan connector whick allowed me to then plug in the ZALMAN VF900. But the ZALMAN VF900 fan just wouldn't work. No biggie, I got 7 fan connections on my Crosshair.

Overall Review: xxx for this card is a sweet deal. Go big or go for this.

A Beauty

ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

Pros: I got this beauty on my Crosshair cooling an X2 6000+. Haven't overclocked the CPU since I installed it. Lol, need to go though all the tons of options on my mobo. So much more offered than an A8n32SLI. Back to the subject, I also own a Thermaltake Big Typhoon VX which I use on my 939. I have seen for myself from the number of purchases, reviews, and popularity on this site of the ZALMAN 9700 and Thermaltake Big Typhoon VX that proves it to be a great heatsink. These 2 can go neck to neck.

Cons: Some people complain about the sizes of heatsinks. heat(SINKS) Come on!!! True enthusiasts? Huge? Let me tell you, the THERMALTAKE Tower 112 with 2 fans on it was huge, and HEAVY!!!

bought 2 to match my ZALMAN 9700

ZALMAN VF900 – CU 2 Ball VGA Cooler
ZALMAN VF900 – CU 2 Ball VGA Cooler

Pros: Got 2 of these for my x1950pro's. They fit perfectly. I left the copper backplate of the stock cooler on which might help it be more effective. I have been using a ZALMAN FS-V7 on my xfx7950gtx 512mb for just about 2 years now and it has been very effective in cooling. One of my highest overclock on the 7950gt was 683MHz x 843MHz without any problems. These are basically the same just different color, higher price, and without the Fatal1ty brand. I love how these also matches my ZALMAN 9700.

Cons: Only that you will have to connect the fan to the motherboard.

Overall Review: It does it's job as a very effective GPU cooler at a very affordable price!!!
