1 Flares 1 Flares ×

Here at KitGuru we understand that many of our readers won’t be running the latest and greatest tech in their system yet will still be interested in squeezing every ounce of performance out of their components.  So we shall be looking at how we can improve a low-end graphics card with an aftermarket cooler.

Zotac have kindly provided us with a GeForce GT 240 graphics card for our tests today which represents what many budget-restricted users may be using.  We will also be looking at the Coolink GFXChilla VGA cooler to see how much extra performance we can extract from the GT 240.  It will also be interesting to see how the temperatures compare with the stock cooler.

Even though we are testing the GFXChilla with a Geforce GT 240, it is compatible with many different low and mid-range GPUs.  The compatibility list can be found here.

    Might work better on a hotter core, but its cheap enough. shame its so ugly mind you.

    I would say anyone aiming to cool a high end board would spend more on a cooler like this ?

    That has to be the most ugly looking cooler i have seen in recent years. Looks like they forgot to paint it. an airfix kit.

    Seems to be priced more for low end cards so I think the fact you tested it on a mass market card is a good idea rather than a 5870 or something. I agree though, its extremely ugly looking, not exactly primed for a case mod window system.

    Might be a good deal for someone who has spend say 120 quid on a card or less and wants to improve the cooling. I cant see anyone with a high end board getting this when artic cooling have such brilliant third party coolers out now. price is good, looks arent. Isnt that part of the reason of getting a third party cooler to get something that looks wicked and also cools well?
