Vou comecar dizendo uma coisa:
Eu NUNCA, JAMAIS tive nada contra coolers grandes, to poco me fudendo pra tamanho de cooler.
Mas pra cambada de fanboy q sempre zuou os coolers da Nv:
Pra mim, ou pra qqr pessoa q gosta de Oc, isso eh uma otima noticia, ver coolers melhores na Ati, vide q o sonho de consumo de qqr dono de 9800 eh um cooler bom. Agora parece q a Ati tera coolers diferentes dos "reference".
Ja pros idiotas q adoravam zuar os cooler da Nv/2 Slots isso seria um topic "flamer" mass..vai ae um conselho:
Vc so nao vao kebrar a fussa com os 2 molex por causa do Pci-Express, senao na proxima geracao da Ati vcs iam ter q engolir mais essa tbm.
Moral da historia?
So fale mal do q realmente eh ruim.
Quando vc zoa so por zoar, sem base, volta tudo na sua cara.
" The (safire) Toxic line pushes technology forward in two major ways, cooling and overclocking. The cooling is the neatest part, Sapphire worked with a major name in cooling to come out with a large diameter, low RPM cooling solution. Take a look at the heatsink and fan setup and you will see what I mean.
Because it is fairly large, it should not spin very fast to provide more than adequate cooling. The fan casing will also be redone to be UV sensitive so it should fit in well with cases that put a priority on looks. The only down side is that a large, low RPM fan takes up two slots, but that is quite livable in most modern systems.
The other important thing that Sapphire did with the Toxic is overclocking. ATI has rules about how fast vendors can ship their chips at, and what they can and can not do with the BIOS settings. Sapphire is meeting those rules while allowing the maximum overclockability using a technology called APE, or Automated Performance Enhancer."
