My System Specs

Default Coolink GFXChilla on 9600GT

Hey HWC,

Is it worth it to get a Coolink GFXChilla cooler for my 9600GT? Aside from lowered noise and decreasing temperatures, will it increase my overclock on it?

Thanks

I imagine if you cool the VRM and memory to compensate as well I dont see why not.

If will increase your OC, but likely nothing all that substantial.

I'd say rather than getting a waterblock you should put the money to upgrading the card.

Sorry. I assumed...

Anyway, for 15 bucks i'd say go for it, but looking at its compatibility it doesn't look like it's going on your next card.
