The SilenX IXG-80HA2 GPU cooler can be used in passive mode or with an optional fan kit. OCC takes a look at how well it cools in both passive and active cooling modes - http://www.overclock...ilenx_ixg80ha2/

Nice review and great results, but as mentioned you can get better performance for less. The Accelero Twin Turbo is a great cooler for $20-30 less.

Yea, this thing is a bit too expensive. I wish we could see a good 4850 compatible cooler for less than $30 sometime soon.

Great cooling performance, especially for fanless, but considering the price, and another 25 for a fan kit? that's a little much
