Hi all, First, I don't know if it's the right place to post this, so if the thread needs to be moved, please do so. I wanted to report my experience of using Thermalright's Shaman VGA cooler in a 90° rotated environment like Silverstone's Fortress FT02 case. Put simply, it does not work well. I've mounted it on a HD 6970 reference design rev2 (blue PCB). The card is overclocked to 950 / 1450, stock voltage. Stress tests are run with Afterburner's embedded Kombustor utility. First, I ran a test in the standard position, by putting the case on its front panel, so the card would be horizontal and Shaman's fan would blow upwards. Idle : 33 °C Kombustor 5 min : 57 °C Kombustor 10 min : 57 °C Kombustor 20 min : 57 °C Shaman is a GREAT cooler in its meant positioning. This result also tells us the cooler is properly mounted. I then put the FT02 back in its normal position, so the video card now hangs vertically, with Shaman's fan blowing to the card horizontally. Idle : 33 °C Kombustor 5 min : 67 °C Kombustor 10 min : 85 °C Kombustor 15 min 30 sec : 97 °C - test aborted. There you. Some first hand test results. I had a hell of a time finding such information at the time of shopping for my build's parts, so I thought I would post them back. Now I need to either buy a VGA cooler that will work well in the FT02 setting, or to buy a new case. Given related cost, I'd prefer the former. But do you happen to know of such an aftermarket cooler ?
