VGA Coolers Rounded Up and put to the test

If there’s one thing that will put a damper on your graphics card overclocking hopes it’s the retail coolers included on most of them since they’re barely able to handle the heat put out by normal clock speeds to begin with.

Real World Labs has gathered six different aftermarket graphics card coolers and compared them to each other and their reference cooler with some impressive results:

Although it’s just May the weather is behaving like if it was August and for that reason i decided to push forward my heat-dissipating related roundups. The first of those has to do with the best VGA coolers available in the market as we speak. Of course it is impossible to test every single VGA cooler in the market since not all of them have the same GPU compatibility but by using an NVIDIA GeForce GTX285 card we managed to use almost every single VGA Cooler we had in our hands.

Some seriously powerful cooling going on here.
