    The stupidest GPU cooler yet

    And i've seen some interesting ones over the years but seriously, who in the hell would want their GPU to sound like a Cisco router on a bad day? Someone in the Gigabyte design and idea department needs a firing.


    GIGABYTE GV-N680SO-2GD GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-bit...

    I have a server with fans like that, it sounds like an aeroplane taking off.

    If you want air cooled, that's the way to go... :P

    Cooling thin rackmounted routers and servers sure, but a consumer grade gaming GPU? Hell no

    LOL, I like this mentality... Would not practice it in every day use though...

    Would be nice a comparison test between this card and an Asus one with the DCII cooler...

    Who knows what's under the hood of that Gigabyte card... I can not see vent/fan holes in either side of the card... - it may be that MK25 under there...

    It'll just be a massive chunk of alu, with about 4/5/6 copper heatpipes bunged into it...
