Freaking Sweet

ZALMAN VF700-CU 2 Ball VGA Cooler
ZALMAN VF700-CU 2 Ball VGA Cooler

Pros: This is simply amazing. My 7600GT ran very very hot. It idled at around 65C-68C and under load it was between 83C and 86C! I put the Zalman on and paired it with Arctic Silver 5. My new temps are idle at 40C and under load 49C. This is simply the best. It might drop a few more degrees when the paste breaks in.

Cons: Don't use the thermal paste that comes with the Zalman. Get Arctic Silver 5. It's way better.

Overall Review: I'm still in shock at how much difference between the stock and this fan is in temperature. Go and buy it for your video card. You won't regret it. Also, I bought this and a few other things on Monday and received the very next day on UPS ground. Thanks Newegg, you rock.

Simply Amazing

EVGA GeForce 7600GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card 256-P2-N554-AX
EVGA GeForce 7600GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card 256-P2-N554-AX

Pros: Oh man where to start...this thing has beaten the living daylights out of every single game I threw at it, even graphically intense games like Oblivion, FEAR, and GRAW. OCs very well also. Mine is at 625/840.

Cons: I had to go and buy an after market cooler, Zalman VF700, after about a week of having the card. I was getting load temps of upwards of 83C! Idle temps itself was upper 60s. Now, even OCed, the card doesn't go above 49C under load.

Overall Review: I know the Dx10 cards come out within a month or so, but if you want something that can hold you over until the 2nd generation of the cards come out (like me), then get this, you won't regret it.

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G

Pros: Oh man this stuff is the best.My video card ran very hot at around 65C idle and about 85 under load. Well this, along with my Zalman VGA fan I bought along with it, dropped the temps to 40C idle and 49 under load. This is no lie. Simply amazing.

Cons: A free 7900GT didn't come with it.

Overall Review: Just like the poster below, I was dying of laughter at how small the syringe was.

Just simply...WOW

Pros: The timing, the heatspreader, and very easy on the wallet. Noticed a nice improvement with all of my games when adding this to my system. No more stuttering anymore. Very satisifed.

Cons: None whatsoever, except I did not get 2 of these.

Overall Review: Just go and buy it. You will love it. Newegg rocks!

Amazing

EVGA 256-P2-N553-AX GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card
EVGA 256-P2-N553-AX GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: Simply amazed with this product. Bought it mainly for Oblivion and boy what a difference. My old card was only getting at the max 15 FPS. I'm getting a minimum of 30 FPS with this one in Oblivion.

Cons: Stock fan not doing all that great. At load, my card is at 75C-85C. I am buying a Zalman fan soon to correct that problem. This isn't really a con but, the fan gets loud for about 5 seconds when I start my computer, after that, it levels off. I like to have a quiet system.

Overall Review: Like I said above, just go and buy a Zalman off newegg. It will make a world of difference. Newegg rocks!
