Not every case is tool-less. Some people prefer to bolt everything into place.

Very nice little GPU there. I'm planning a 4850 Crossfire setup for my AMD rebuild, did you take the cards apart by any chance Hilbert? I'm curious to know whether or not the RAM cooling plate is separate from the main core cooler, a pair of these and a couple of MCW30's could make me quite happy (and possibly a little aroused....).

Owning one is half the battle.

Finding it is the real challenge.

Question No HIS products in SA - 10-07-2008, 07:16 | posts: 1 | Location: Near Cape Town, South Africa

Here in South Africa i cant find any HIS products which really sucks cuz i really like that ICEQ4 cooler as its actually the best 4850 cooler ive seen. Im really disappointed in companies like ASUS and Sapphire for not giving gamers a proper dual slot cooler for the 4850s. I really hate those Zalman and Glaciator coolers they use even though they do n better job than the reference design. They're just so damn ugly! Dual slot coolers with the classic design that channels the hot air out the back of the PC case is the best design. This is one thing that is really missing in the 3850, 9600GT, 8800GT and especially the 4850 and something must be done!!
