    HIS or HIS? :D

    Hi i wanna change my VGA card sapphire radeon 1600 pro,here in Belgrade in shops i found sapphire 2600 XT,but i looked at his cards and found 2600 XT FAN and i really wanted 2600 XT IceQ Turbo is this FAN version worth it? or should i wait for ICEQ version?

    Imo yes, it is worth waiting, the IceQ coolers are very quiet and exhaust the heat outside of the case (though I don't think the HD 2600 runs that hot....).

    Hexus recently reviewed the IceQ and Zalman (not the same as FAN model, which is more basic than Zalman) versions of the HD 2600XT here:
    http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=9601&page=1

    That said, I don't know how loud the regular FAN model is... if you have a noisy case then you might not notice any difference.

    One very obvious practical difference is that the IceQ and Zalman versions will take up two slots but the fan version is a single slot cooler (though putting another card directly under a fan is not a good idea ).

    The Zalman's a single slot too, but they reckon it's not really worth the premium over the standard fan cos the Zalman still makes the card run hot..
