  1. Ok. I'm looking to silence an XFX GeForce 6600GT 128MB PCI-E. I'm was wondering if anyone could recommend a VGA cooler that I could stick on there. The main things I want from the cooler are silence and one that doesn't take up an extra slot.

    Is this possible?

    Arctic Cooling VGA Silencer NV6 (Rev2)

    I have the same brand cooler on my graphics card it is excellent!
    it has :

    New clip and back plate design for better fit.

    New fan casing design to enhance compatibility
    A filter is integrated into the PCB to reduce the noise generated from the motor.

    A large fan and optimized fanblades offer a minimum noise level at a high air flow.

    Highest fin surface area and a 2.5 mm thick copper base achieve best cooling performance at its noise level.

    ARCTIC Ceramic Bearing (alloy bearing and Ceramic shaft) provides our fans with an outstanding service life.

    The DHES draws cool air from inside the case and exhausts warm
    air outwards. This prevents the fan from recycling warm air to cool the
    GPU, which increases cooling performance. Furthermore the DHES lowers the air temperature inside the case, by drawing out the heat of the GPU.

    I fully recommend this cooler it costs $37 AU so it must be extemely cheap if you live the US :)

    ....And it doesn't take up an extra slot? Also, I can't find a US site selling it. They're all in Austrailia.

    tubes take the heat away from chipset
