Hi,
As you can also see in my sig, i have paired the Ultra 120 with a 120mm scythe fan S-Flex SFF21E (1200 rpm) which is of course a 3-pin fan and not 4-pin and i am very happy with results. The fan is almost inaudible.

Asus P5B/deluxe/Wifi, speedfan 4.32 can control 3 chasis fans (3 pin header) all tied to one speed setting and also the cpu fan which must be a 4-pin one, otherwise it is not controlled. Q-fan must be set to off.

ryboto, Probably I didn’t make myself clear, you are right that the produced heat would be the same but having a passive cooler the transfer of the heat from heatsink to air is based on the existing airflow which means that you will have a hot spot in your case with high temps on it and the surrou...

[sjoukew] thank you for the review which on page 5 ( http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/powercolor-x1950pro_5.html ) reads that the "fan is always rotating at 2000rpm" which means that the speed is probably not controlable.

i agree with you. I think that the Powercolor doesnot have controlable fan (Accelro X2) from what i have read on the net. On the other hand i have no idea what is going on with the MSI.

Thanks ryboto,
so i think it would be wise to go for the Noctua NF-S12 @1200 rpm and control it with fanmate2. Ryboto, i see in your signature that tou have an ATI X1950 with a VF900; although the question is off topic, are you satisfied from the vf9000 on the X1950 tempwise and noisewise?

Thank you for the advice, but finally after one and a half hour of gently pulling and twisting i managed to get this thing off. The thermal pads on the backplate were the worst comparing to the ones on the cooler's side. Anyway, end of the alarm. So, i hope that the card will be replaced.
