    Excellent CoolerMy stock cooler for an 8800GT OC2 was reaching temps of 70, with near 100 when playing games. Installed one of these and the difference is fantastic. Temps are now 45 and only reach 55 to 58 when playing games. Fantastic cooler and highly recommended. Take note however that some RAM heatsinks are needed for the front of 8800GT OC2 cards as they're not covered properly. Apart from that i would highly recommend this card to anyone.159 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    WonderfulI bought this to replace the stock cooler on my Geforce 7950GT which was beginning to fail. It has a made a massive difference.

    Using the stock cooler, I had to switch my case fan and my GPU fan to 100% just to keep the card at 70c under load. Now I get 45c under heavy load with all my fans turned right down.

    I really can't recommend this fan enough. It's not exactly silent, but it's very, very quiet in comparison to what I had before. It's also extremely easy to install - it took me about ten minutes in total, with no fancy tools needed. The loudest fan now is the case fan that came with my Antec Sonata III, and seeing as the Sonata III is a quiet case, that's a really impressive achievement.

    Thanks Overclockers :-)

    (Note: Yes, I said Geforce 7950 -- though it's not listed as supported on the Akasa website it works just fine!)159 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    Akasa ReviewI saw your review and look up a local vendor, thought his product is constructed well it does requre some modes to fit my Palit 8800GT1 GB Superclocked card. The stock fan did not fair well under BF3 games for 24 hours straight heheh, I replace this with AKasa Neo and had to perform some mods, bending the heatsink fins to make a 2 mm clearance, mt MB-old DG33FB had southbridge fan obstructing the PCIE slot, was relocated. after installing & live power teat 10 sec., my 6pin molex burned out. I replace this but the back on the 8800 was cause of the overheating and artifacts/freezing. I reseated the cooler firmly on the VGA card and added some more 80 mm fans at the back on the VGA. My only complaint is the power requirement for both 3.3V and the 12 V rail line.158 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    Akasa AK-VC03-BLUV Vortexx NEO VGA CooleStuck one on my leadtek 8800GT today. Temps have gone down from 75oC under load to 45oC. From 55oC idel to 35oC. ( temps are for the GPU core reading in GPU-Z ).

    The cooler is very easy to fit and comes with good instructions. There are no mini heatsinks included so i had to get some elsewhere for the voltage regs. Check if you card will need some of these.

    The fan header is 3pin so will need to go on your board or on a fan controller of you want to vary the speed on it.

    Overall an excellent and good looking cooler that beats similar ones because this cooler exhausts the hot air out of the back of your case!

    A good buy and as usual a cracking service from ocuk!147 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    Finally installed after nearly 5 years, Originally intended it for my XFX 8800GTS 320MB XXX 320MB years ago, but it was incomptable. Then 3 years ago, bought a XFX 9800GTX+ 512MB and thought I can finally use the cooler, but only to find it has a non-reference PCB, and one of the capacitor'd position in the way of the cooler, so back to the shelf the cooler went. Now recently I start playing Guild Wars 2...it stress my 9800GTX+ more than any other games, and hitting 85C would switch off the display output (for protecting the hardware I think). I decided to give installing the Vortexx Neo another go. I identified the corner of the aluminium plate of the cooler which is conflicting with the capacitor, and cut/sand off the corner with tools so there is clearance for around the capacitor.

    And success! Temp in GW2 has now dropped from max 85C down to under 60C, and idle temp dropped from 47C down to 34C in a averge airflow case! No more switching off display output, and much quieter than the horrible reference blower cooler.143 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes
