Yeh I mean lengthways. The S2 only has 2 heatpipes, but it is advertised as compatible with the 9600gt which I think is the same fitting as all the 8800/9800/250 cards?

Only 2 heatpipes but I wonder if they can handle it with a fan added!

Hiya, are you running the S1 or S2 frenchie, I know the S1 should do the job but would prefer the S2 to keep card shorter (then it can fit in my spare system if I need!)

AC Accelero S2 + 92 or 120 fan enough for GTS 250?

I just picked up a cheap Geforce GTS 250 1GB (Gainward Deep Green Editiion). It is slightly underclocked but the stock fan is still pretty noisy. I would like to keep the card short in case I use it in a smaller PC at some point so I'm wondering whether an Arctic Cooling Accelero S2 with a zip-tied ...

thanks for the advice all. It will certainly be interesting to find out whether the flat CAT6 cable makes a difference when I get some gigabit hardware, I have a long spare rounded cable so I will test. I've decided to try a coupler and found a cheap one that is labeled as CAT6 and shielded, not sur...

thanks for the response. Putting a new cable in would certainly be the ideal but unfortunately the current cable goes through several walls and under fitted carpets (it's a flat one) to get to me. I only want to refit another one if there is significant change in performance! I think I'll try a coup...

Hi there, I have just rearranged my bedroom which has my PC in and now my 20m cat6 cable from my main switch is too short to reach the PC. At the moment I am using a spare gigabit switch and an extra cable to extend to the switch at my PC. However the switch in question was relegated to a spare beca...

There are very good coop mods for some more modern games, doom 3 - last man standing is a bit like serious sam (lots of enemies) plus you can play the normal single player campaign in co-op. A similar mod for half life 2 is Follow Freeman.

Interested in this too - although a HR-03 won't fit in an Antec NSK2400 it will give an indication whether the Zalman VNF100 (although probably inferior?) could handle a 3780. Either that or one of the powercolor or sparkle passive versions of the 3780 might fit.

I have a friend with the Antec NSK2400 case who wants to upgrade his pc for some gaming but wants a passive card.

Well if you were using 2 500gb drives you would raid stripe them which would make them almost twice as fast as the 1tb drive, wouldn't you?
