It seems that the VM-101 is out of stock @ tigerdirect.ca From SometimesWarriors post about modding the 6600gt, i got a similar plan myself but dont know if it will actually work out. I plan to unplug/remove teh stock fan fromthe heatsinks and place a 120mm vantec stealth (yes i noe, its crap, but t...

My friend has a ZM80D-HP so I'm going to get the VM-101 :). If Edward is using it, im pretty confident in it though like Ed said, i might break it O_O but o well, whats life without risks... edit: the VM-101 is better performance wise right? Cause i have to travel to tigerdirect to get the aerocool....

Thanks for the reply, I've made up my mind to go with the VM-101 for 2 reasons. 1) the Zalamn 80D-HP is heck alot of work to install (took my friend an hour) and i like the VM-101 apperance and performance wise.

i see, it seems that the STOCK heatsink fan is PRETTY efficent... half life 2-ed for over 3 hours the heatsink is barely warm :) only setback is itS LOUD

anyway, so basically the vm-101 would be a good choice interms of fanless gpu cooler

Edward, I also have the MSI 6600GT AGP card and i find that the little heatsink beside the big heatsink ( i believe the bridge) is hotter than the big heatsink at IDLE and LOAD, but its just slightly hotter than warm i can lay my finger on it without pain. And i have delicate fingers, just to let yo...

it is the NX6600GT-VTD128. It is the one with the fancy heatsink cover.

I am thinking of getting the AeroCool VM-101 but i dont know about its performance.

Compared to the Zalman 80D, is the AeroCool VM-101 better??
Also, would it perform good in my unmodded Sonata (with low air flow)??

Shutting the MSI 6600GT up!

I just bought my MSi 6600GT (AGP) vga and unfortunately for me, it everything reviews say but quiet. I have thought about using my existing vantec stealth (not quiet) and blow air at it vertically. The thing is, i dont think there will be any airflows. The other alternatives i was thinking of was ge...

I dont know if i'm talkin about the same thing here, but my Sonata came with a ONE fan PSU and i say its pretty hard to suck in hot air from the CPU because there are those holes on the side that spells ANTEC to give it cool air.

On MBM5, i can only find the A7N8X-E Deluxe rev >2.0. I believe I have revision 1, and then there is the A7N8X-E All revision. Which one should i select then?

Also, there isnt a 'W83L785TS-S Diode" in the list of sensors.
