Do you think this card would have any issues in a case with very little airflow? A lot of HTPC cases aren't exactly paradigms of cooling. :lol:


Yes, if you don't have any air flowing through the fins, to dissipate heat, on that cooler it's just going to get hotter and hotter LOL! As long as you can position a case fan near the card you should be fine though. :)

Good to hear. I guess that's an issue with any passive cooler.

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

Yep, some are better than others though. Sapphire has been pretty good with the ULTIMATE card's coolers. I tested, I believe, the 5XXX series version a while back and that cooler performed equally well.

Looks like passive cards are becoming more and more powerful with die shrinks :)
Soon we might even have a HD7970 performance equivalent passive card ...
