Default How to cool a 9800XT

I was very interested in the VGA cooler because it dissipates heat OUT of the case instead of into the case. But everywhere i looked it said it only fits the 9800 pro.

Yea i think the VGA cooler would work though.. someone told me it would, and most hsf's that fit a pro should more than likely fit an xt *shrugs*.. that's my guess but I know I'm probably wrong

from what I've heard, it will not fit they are working on a new revision though that will fit. So your gonna have to wait. It is the best air cooler though for graphic cards.

well... prersonally i dont like aftermarket VGA coolers. I had a giant II and i hated it. Too messy, and too much of a hassle. Plus.. on the 9800xt, the fan on it is HUGE. So i dunno why you would need a bigger one.
