Well......I installed the regular VF900.

I have it set to 100% and I can't hear it No more gaming to the horrible wine of the stock fan

Temp comparison from playing Oblivion...

stock fan
Fan- 40%------not gaming----- 44-45c (can barely hear it)
Fan- 100% ----gaming-----------50-60c (loud annoying wine)

VF900
Fan- 100%---- -not gaming----- 40-41c (silent)
Fan- 100%------gaming-----------55-70c (silent)

The stock fan cools better with less fluctuation while gaming, But as long as the temps are not in the red(80c?) I'm much happier with the VF900


The VF900 comes with a fan speed controller. The connectors are the same as a regular fan, So it doesn't plug into the X1900XT.

Can I get rid of the speed controller, Splice the stock fan connector onto the VF900, Plug it into the X1900XT and use ATI tool, to control the fan speed?

Thanks

i just installed my vf900... i would not recommend using the paste they include....
look at the thermal conductivity on the tube. It says it is 1.2 W/m-K

Artic Silver 5 has a thermal conductivity 8.89 W/m-K AS5 says 350 kW/m^2-K per .001 in. what a bs-a-thon, gotta convert and multiply.)... its worth the extra 7 bucks imo for 7-8x more heat transfer ability.
