Default Jetart VGA Coolers VC1000, VC2600, VC3600 Reviews by AMDZone

Here's a couple of aftermarket cooler for both of the big two's higher nd gpu's the reviewes conclude that is probably isn't worth replacing today's highly effective stock cooling solutions with these aftermarket products, although in the end, they rate them quite highly...They sure are perrty, though.

'All in all the Jetart VGA coolers certainly aren't bad for replacement coolers but compared to the stock coolers of Nvidia and ATI we don't believe they match up as well and defintely aren't worth removing on the mid-range and high-end video cards at all. If you're running a very low-end graphics card you might consider upgrading with a better cooler but honestly you're money is probably better spent towards purchasing a better performing graphics card.
Where the Jetart coolers do have their place though are for those with coolers on their video cards which might have failed or broken. Although that was quite a problem in th'e past and all cards produced within the past few years don't really have that problem for those with older cards the Jetart would make a fine replacement to fix an otherwise fine video card. This is where we feel the card shines

VC1000 Score: 82%
VC 2600 Score: 70%
VC 3600 Score: 85%'
