We all want the best cooling that we
can get when we decide to overclock our systems. People pay plenty
for a good processor heatsink and then some for case fans. The one
thing people almost always overlook, is their graphics card. There
are a lot of GeForce 4s out there that come with a rather cheap GPU
heatsink/fan and no ramsinks at all. Luckily, Thermaltake has realized
that people need cooling products for their graphics card too! With
an average selling price of $20, today we'll be checkin' out a ThermalTake
G4-VGA copper cooler with ramsinks on a Vision Tek 4200 SE.
The kit is pretty basic, it includes
a copper heatsink with fan that very much resembles the Nvidia reference
cooler. There are a several big difference though, mainly being it
has a bigger fan and uses a pin design rather than curved rows. Of
course, it also has a clear cover to show itself off.
It also comes with some ramsinks. However,
the ramsinks were designed for BGA memory, not the TSOP design that
the TI4200 uses. We figured this won't be too much of a biggy, we'll
just pull out the dremel and cut each of the four pieces in half so
that each ram chip will have a heatsink covering the whole thing.
