Default questions questions i got some wana help?

As you all know I’ve been look’n into VGA coolers I’ve already ordered a few but that

doesn’t mean I can’t order some more right? I was looking at the Thermaltake Extreme

Giant III that stats are nice on it anyone here used it? Is it any good on the newer cards of today?

i agree with dark sniper. fanless cooling SEEMS like it wont work. ive never tired it. if your going fanless you should go with water cooling. ill look into it...

If you have a heatsink, there's no reason to leave it fanless. Passive cooling seems... ineffective. You can do better than just a heatsink.
