If you’ve ever thought the maximum VGA length in Cooler Master cases to be a little absurd (18.2 inches on the HAF XM if you remove the drive cage!) when most video cards are no longer than 11, this is why – 3rd party VGA heat sinks.
A with the summer cresting, computers everywhere are working hard to deal with the heat. While your CPU maybe under the care of a nice, high end heat sink, could you say the same about your graphics cards? I’ve been running with stock VGA coolers all my life, but after seeing my load temperatures cresting 92C on my cards, I felt it time to experiment with a 3rd party heat sink.
