Any product with Silencer in its name must be able to do things quietly. The Arctic Cooling VGA Silencer is no slacker when it comes to keeping a video card cool, but can it do it without waking the neighbors? The answer is a resounding yes. Even in High-speed mode, I could barely hear the wide bladed, blue fan turning over the noise of just one 80mm case fan. - The Review

I have to say that disagree with your Cons for this product, but I do agree with you on every other point.

I don't have a windowed case so I don't care about LEDs. I have a 9800PRO overclocked to an XT; and the cooler does not over hang the card.

One problem I did have was getting the graphics card back in the case after the Cooler was fitted. It turns out that Northbridge HSF on my Abit IS-7 motherboard blocks the plastic back bracket for the Cooler. Luckily it is plastic and a session with a file takes care of the problem.

I know lots of folks that would tend to agree with you on the LED, but also a huge number that would love to see a blue LED added.

Good information on the clip in back. Was not a problem in my particular application, however I could see that being a giant issue.

Nice review and nice product. But what Jab-Tech $13.95 price? I clicked over ready to purchase, only to find it instead listed at $17.95. Still not bad, but I wonder what happened to the price you cited. It was too good to be true, I guess.

Actually I noticed that Jab Tech had the REV 3 VGA Coolers for 17.95.

When the review was written, the REV 2 coolers were indeed $13.95.

I can vouch for the fact that Rev 2.0 was $13.95 as of Monday.... But, I have a secret to pass on to those interested in the Rev 3.0 currently listed at $17.95!! Ready? Ready? Laughing

Buy a Rev 3.0 VGA Silencer and enter coupon code rev3goodness at check out to get $5 off... $12.95 final price!! Nice... Thanks Jab-Tech!

Ok Bruin, I'm very impressed! Just that quick with an offer to get the newest version at an incredible price. I've just placed my order. Thanks much.

All a coincidence really, but Jab-tech apparently just got the Rev 3.0 in and sent an e-mail tonight with this promotion!
