Hot:thumbsup:

Remeber this is the older 192 stream card

if you want a GeForce - get the 216 Stream version of this,
but the 4870 1GB is a higher spec'd card for little more money,
so it's better to go for that imo.

voted cold as the 216 core can be had for 125.........

Not hot, its the old 192 card, you can get a much faster ATI 4890 for 15 quid more.

Does anyone know of a similarly specced card that uses passive cooling?

I'm not a fan of the whirring fan heatsinks

thanks

what do you do for your CPU then?

because the GTX260 is kicking out over 100watts of heat the cooler needs to be top notch the only one In existance is think is the Thermalright HR-03 GTX and even then you need a small fan to assist it.

passivly cooling GPU's of this nature is a bad idea things get alot hotter than they should do as no air is being pushed over the card, on some review the VRM (voltage regulation module) at load is roughly 80degrees C but when cooled using the above heatsink its sitting at 126C... its not going to end well:whistling:
