Reduced GeForce 8800GTS temps by 16C
After installing this about 2 slots below/left of my EVGA GeForce 8800GTS, I was able to overclock my video card to the following: Core Clock: 649 MHz (default 513 MHz) Shader Clock: 1502 MHz (default 1188 MHz) Memory Clock: 1005 MHz (default 792 MHz) With both the 8800GTS fan running 100% and this Antec blower on high I was able to get temps down by 16 degrees C. Now my temps are 47C idle & 57C load. Without the Antec my temps would be 60C idle and 83C Load and crash in 3DMark Vantage (set to 1680x1050 / High). This is a sizeable improvement considering I have a Silverstone Lascala LC-10 HTPC case. On high this Antec blower is loud at 39 dBA, but it exhaust a ton of air. You can feel the difference from its exhaust and the amount of air the 8800GTS blows out with fan at 100%. But I'm too concentrated when playing games to notice the noise. Besides I usually have a headset on or my speakers drown the noise out. Definately worth it!
