Hardcore overclockers and gamers do not only have to worry about the temperature
of their CPU, but also the temperature of their video cards. Overclocking a
video card usually has a much larger impact on game frame rates than overclocking
a processor. That said, there is also another point of view when it comes to
gaming and has nothing to do with overclocking, many people like to enjoy some
casual gaming with their HTPC, or simply in a quiet environment. Buying a high
end video card usually leaves these people frustrated, as the reference
coolers generate a lot of noise in order to keep them cool enough. So aftermarket
VGA coolers easily come into mind. Today we will take a look at a VGA cooler
from a Korean company, Zerotherm, the GX815. The GX815 boasts not only exceptional
performance but low noise as well. Too good to be true? We will soon find out.
