    Gfx card Air Cooler from Scan???

    I need a graphics card Air Cooler for my nVidia GTX 260

    I want to buy it from Scan... Only, I'm afraid that Scan may not have one? If they do, I can't find it, but maybe I'm overlooking it.

    Can someone link me to any compatible air coolers for the GTX 260 model? Thanks.

    Air cooler.. how the mighty have fallen

    The stock cooler is actually fantastic. Very quiet and keeps the temps in check (well it's supposed to according to SPCR anyways)

    Yes I cannot think why you would want to swap the stock cooler, unless it's broken.

    I'm a novice, I wasn't aware it had a stock cooler... lol sorry for the silly question

    But thanks everyone, mike, and all, for the responses.

    And Mike, I'm only aircooling until next year when I'll throw top-of-the-line watercooling into my TJ07B

    We shall see...

    I think if you set it up with decent air cooling in mind you will see the benefits (mostly to your wallet) for themselves. Air cooling has come a long way in noise and effectiveness in the last few years

    Yeah, we'll see! Definitely my wallet, but I think it's worth it, this case is supposed to be the best of the best, and it should last me forever (relative to computers)

    I'm going to make a new thread, check it out, where I'll post my current cooling setup... it's not much but I'll do it anyways.
