Greg King I don't really see any need to actively cool video card RAM. As Rob said, nVidia choose not to cool the GDDR3 on the 7900s not because they wanted to save some money but because it wasnt needed. I wouldnt count this cooler out on that fact alone.

madmat The ram on the face of the card has air flowing over it so, yes, it is cooled just not sinked. You could probably add a cheap set of low profile sinks for $8.00 which considering it's a $20 cooler still makes it cheaper than the competition.

Rob Williams Bare in mind that not all GPU's require actively cooling memory chips. Take the 7900GT for instance. The stock cooler does not even blow air on them, and they are not covered.

Bobbythecat Hm. Seems like the memory is not cooled....
Yeah, that'll be my reason to not get this one.

Evercool is back with another graphics card cooler, and we have high hopes for this one. It looks almost like a toy, but the design could prove very smart. One immediate bonus of the cooler is that it only retails for $20, but let's see if it's worth it.

After reading my review here, feel free to discuss it here!
