PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING



We'll be putting this cooler on an eVGA GeForce 6800XT graphics card.



The OEM cooler is very low profile. It's also very loud and the cooling performance leaves something to be desired. The GX810 isn't much thicker, and should provide much better cooling.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


There are two sets of mounting hardware provided. On the left, the tool-free solution should be used in single card systems. The low-profile mounts on the right can be used when space above the card is at a premium; SLI systems for example. A screwdriver is needed for this option.



With the OEM cooling solution removed, the chips cleaned with alcohol and the installation guide and new components at hand, we can begin.


The ramsinks are a simple peel-and-stick operation. With a thin layer of thermal compound applied to the GPU, the card prep is finished.



After placing the screws through the holes, the thumbnuts, with their integral springs and insulators, can be tightened down until they bottom. Like the other ZEROtherm products I've used, the GX810 is dead simple to install.
